Hi, does anyone know if it's possible to get repairs carried out on Archos's and if so where.

Specifically is it possible to get a replacement screen ? (don't ask why :mad:)

Many thanks

Thanks.

I contacted Archos and am going to send it back for repair.

RMA process seemds pretty easy. Should be about £90 for a new screen which isnt bad.

Tinners, did you get this sorted, I have managed to crack the screen on my 504 just before I went on a holiday. Decided to get a 604 Wifi for the holidays and then claim on the insurance when I got back.

Just found out the excess on my insurance is £110 and they will up my premium, so if you got the replacement for £90 then thats the route to follow.

Thanks.

Good news, I have just had my Archos 700 repaired cheaply and quickly. Try [email protected] The guy there Chris almost had my Archos in the return post, fixed and tested. He is based in Canterbury Kent. All that was wrong with mine was a loose connection for the head phone jack which he re-soldered and posted back for £30. Considering the machine was useless without the repair I thought that was pretty good.

The guy is called Chris and he was very helpful. he is based in Canterbury I believe. I posted the archos to him and it virtually came back by return. I just sent his payment by BAC's. Send him an email ask him about their payment options.
