Re: White screen

The white screen due low battery is a known problem for me, had that problems from the first days of my archos. However, the problem we had after the crash is not linked to the battery power. I had this problem 4 times after the crash. I need to dismantle the unit, check connections and play with th...

Re: Internal Pictures of 704wifi

Hi! I'm searching inside pictures of the a704 to show the screen connectors to an archosfan user that is in trouble, it is possible to recover those pictures?
When I fixed my unit I forgot to take photos of the inside.
Thanks

Re: White screen

Just finished to fix it. Finally I found that the crash broke the flat connector support/mount. The LCD is fitted on the main board by means of few flt connectors, one of them is a connector between the LCD and its back cover (maybe steel), this flat connector is short and fit on the back of the LCD...

Re: White screen

Anyone tried to replace hard drive?

Hi!
I'm interested in this new archos ONLY if the orrible 60Gb hard drive can be replaced, it is known that archos locks the unit with the built HDD, anyone knows if Archos9 is suffering of the same known problem???

Thanks

Screws, loosen screws, lost screws

Hi!
I've a little (very little in dimensions) problem:
Using my A704 in the car produced vibrations that loosen some screws, Tomorrow I've discovered that 2 screws (one of the plastic antenna cover and one just forward to it) were lost.
Where I can find replacement screws?

I want to "walk the path" but I need to know if someone have hacked the 704 unit, because I read about 604, 605 and other but not 704...
And with the latest firmware there are some improvements for DVD files (subtitles and vobs played together)

If they will change only mainboard or battery your data will remain (probably), if the problem is in the software or in the hard drive they will change/format it, so is better to make a backup!
Have you tried to check battery contacts? Buy a new battery, maybe the battery can be the problem! ;)

I have the same problem but only if the battery is near to the discharge.
ask for a NEW unit or a refund. the only other way is to try another battery, your one can be defected.

Never buy a new product to fix bugs of my unit.
never buy gen 5, and probably I will never buy archos products again.

Is the recorded filesize limit solved? Or it continues to record multiple files when over 1.2Gbs?

@Missionsparta you really shouldn't quote second hand info as fact, If there are bugs which there always are in most new hardware, thats where the firmware upgrade comes into play, Look at how many bugs are in PC motherboards bios for any type of MOB make, I think theres about 8 or 9 firmware upgra...

Same problem here! but not only with recorded tv programs! Sometimes it did with videos recorded also with my old av340.
And few times with downloaded files.
The issue appears very random!
