TOUCHSCREEN DEAD SPOTS FIX ??? - WORKED FOR ME
I also had this problem when i first received my 101 it was like icons/widgets would stick when i tried to drag them to delete or if i held down touch the middle of the screen for the "Add to home screen" option it would not work. What i did was as follows:
1.) Click here to download the 1.0.84 firmware from archos.com
2.) IMPORTANT make sure your device is plugged in
- Turn off your Archos, turn it back on and instantly hold the volume down button untill you get to the white Archos recovery screen, you can now let go of the volume button.
3.) (In the recovery menu your volume up/down button moves the cursor and the power button selects the highlighted option.)
From here select -
I UnderstandAll data (music, photos, videos, etc.), applications and settings wil be erased
Follow the on-screen instructions untill it asks you to connect your device to you computer PC
Your ARCHOS device will be detected as a 'Mobile Device' in Windows┬« Explorer (will appear as as a drive in "My Computer" Double-click on the Drive icon and you will see the various ARCHOS folders inside (Video, Music, etc.). Copy the firmware file you downloaded earlier (step 1.) into this area but be careful not to paste it into any of the folders there.
Follow the on-screen instructions (on Archos) untill the firmware has been installed and the setup wizard starts (like when you first turned it on from new)
4.) Once your archos has been restored its gonna need calibrating so go to
Settings > Repair & Formatting > Touch Screen Calibration.
Settings > Repair & Formatting > Accelerometer Calibration.
If all goes well should be silky smooth and very responsive.
Hope this helps...
You are suggesting this if the 1.0.84 firmware update didn't take properly, yes?. I ask as it was the first thing I did when I received the 101 last Monday
but didn't do any of the above, just updated thru firmware update on 101, and seems to work fine, except for lack of ram. I am just curious would it be
even better if I did what you call out above? If so, too late I assume, since I already did the firmware update?
