How to Reset an Archos 605 WiFi

Updated March 23, 2017

There are instances when you may want to reset your Archos 605. The basic reset is used if the device is frozen or unresponsive. In this situation, you simply want to turn it off, then back on. The other type of reset is known as the factory reset. This is helpful if you wish to sell or discard your Archos 605; it erases all of your personal information and data.
