Re: Are You Happy With Your 605?

I've had my 605wifi 160 for 4 years since it was first a TSV on QVC. Overall I'd say I've been fairly pleased with it. I've obviously had the normal battery issues by leaving it on the dock too long, but thanks to Huestones, it was changed OK. However, now it is nearly full and the thing does lock u...

Re: Today's QVC UK TSV - Archos 48 500GB

Sorry Jamie, I didn't mean to offend or annoy you in any way. I'm not that sort of person. I was just posting some constructive criticism towards Archos and QVC and how I've personally been treated by Archos customer services in recent years. I hope you can accept my sincere apologies. You must be o...

Re: Today's QVC UK TSV - Archos 48 500GB

Whhooaa! Jamie41, you may consider yourself to be an Archos Guru, but I see you have only been a member of this forum since March 2011. I think my 2007 membership entitles me to a little more credit than you give me. Just because I rarely post doesn't mean anything. Like I said. I had an AV320, whic...

Re: Today's QVC UK TSV - Archos 48 500GB

Having been fairly happy with both my AV320 and 605 WiFi (apart from battery issues) I thought I'd update and get the QVC TSV too. I thought I can't go wrong for that price. How wrong I was. I haven't even tried puuting any music, pictures or video on it yet, but I have to say I'm extremely disappoi...

Re: Battery or HD Failure?

If you're based in the UK and don't fancy changing it yourself, you should try Huestones. They Changed my battery in my 605 WiFi 160 Gb and I got the unit off to them and back again within a week. Very Good Customer service in my opinion.

Will Reinitialization remove my web browser?

Hi, I have recently had my battery changed and have just put my music back on my 605. Unfortunately I have multiple copies of songs listed in albums and am led to believe that the only way to get rid of them is to carry out a FULL SYSTEM REINITIALIZATION. What I would like to know is, if I did this,...

Re: 605 dies on dock

Had a problem once with something or other, can't remember what as I've had so many, but it wouldn't clear with a quick press, tried it half a dozen times, but when I held it for that much longer, the fault cleared so I've always reset with long press from then on and it's always cleared.

Re: 605 dies on dock

Have you tried resetting it with a pin through the small pin hole reset button underneath the left hand charger socket? If you've not, hold it in for about 30 seconds. This resets the microprocessor but doesn't wipe anything off.

Re: 605 dies on dock

Sounds to me like you may have damaged the dock in some way. Do you know anyone with another dock you could try?

Re: 605 dies on dock

Very Strange fault, never heard of that one. Does the TV/LCD button work? Does it always switch itself off after exactly the same time on the dock or does it vary. Sorry mate, but I don't know what to suggest. Hopefully someone else will be able to help you out.

Re: Inside 80GB/160GB 605/Battery replacement

After almost a year without my 605 due to battery fault I must give my thanks to Ali at HueStones based in Birmingham in the UK. I attempted the change, by taking all the screws out, but didn't have the confidence or the tools to do the job myself. I sent my unit off to Ali along with the battery I ...

Thanks for the reply, but would a broken joystick still stop me from moving Right with the FM Remote attached too?

AV320 - PLEASE HELP - Can't move Right or Down on screen

Hi Guys, My trusty old AV320 has developed a fault in which it won't move right or down anymore with either the cursor or remote. It will change tracks with the fm remote, but I cannot move around the screen to change settings etc. Does anyone know if there is anything I can do to rectify this fault...

Re: QVC UK Archos Day - Saturday November 28th

Thanks Ashley, I was so tempted by the QVC offer but that's their job I guess. I was very good and held back from ordering it in the end. You are right about the DVR, it's a shame it was not included too otherwise it may have been a different story. I know the battery isn't that simple to replace by...

Re: QVC UK Archos Day - Saturday November 28th

Is this QVC deal a good one? I can't make my mind up. I already have a 160gb 605 (albeit with a knackered battery) so would probably cost in the region of £80 to repair by Archos. I miss it yes, but I mainly miss using it as a web browser on my tv, so i'd have to fork out £70 or so for a new DVR s...

I Live in the London area too. There must be somewhere in the UK that will provide this service. I did try emailing a gadget repairers i found on the net sometime ago, but I never got a reply to my email.
