Re: White screen

Had this problem with my 704 wifi a couple years ago when the original battery went kaputz. Replaced the battery and the problem went away. Seems if it really can't hold charge it can't muster enough juice to initialize the screen properly. I had some of the anomolous behaviour mentioned in the thr...

Re: eBook noob

A Kindle app is available for Android devices, I have it on my A5IT. It works just fine with all those Amazon books. I can see no reason why it wouldn't work on the Gen8 devices. I used to use it on my A5A before I bought a Kindle and it worked ok other than in bright light when you had problems se...

Re: So many problems...

This is my 4th Archos ( 704TV, 705 and rubbish Archos 7 I returned) and the one I have had the least trouble with. I don't bother with HD video as it simple not worth it on a 5" screen and I don't have the DVR station etc. so I can't use HDMI output. I do have a battery dock and output to my TV thou...

Re: Anyone else having serious battery problems?

I haven't had any problems with the battery so far but found that charging throught the USB port to be very slow so bought the battery dock. This means that I always have an extra source of power when away from a power socket plus I don't need to use the Archos's USB port also I can output to a TV i...

Re: Still hanging in there

Thanks for sharing Metabol, what a nightmare. I'm in UK, and agree about Amazon for devices like this. I also tend to buy gadgets from QVC here in the UK. Two reasons - 1 - they tend to have very cheap prices for "packages" - lots of extra value, and 2 - their 30 day, no questions asked, money back...

Re: Showing as available on QVC UK

Mine arrived yesterday and when I checked it the screen had what looked like a crack across it. I swithched it on to see what is was and the Archos was already in record mode and I couldn't do anything with it as the touch screen didn't work. Looking closely it seems to be a crack in the covering of...

Weather Forcast and other widgets wont connect to internet

I have been using the Weather Forcast and News Reader widgets on my 705 since I first purchased it and a couple of days ago they stopped connecting saying no network available even though it is connected to the internet and Opera etc works fine.

Re: My 2nd Archos 7 has blown up!

I owned an Archos 7 for a while and had a lot of problems with it so I returned it and bought the 705. Other than it not being able to play HD stuff I have been very happy with it. It has crashed a few time but the 7 crashed more time in a day that the 705 has since I have had it. What I want is a r...

Re: End of the road

I bought the Gemini 220 20gb mp3 player when it came out quite a few year ago and have had no problem with it. I also have the 704TV and other than a small problem with the DVD station that had also functioned properly. I then bought the 7 which was a very buggy machine so I returned it for a refund...
