Came in this evening and my pace 1000 was on BBC 1 but with no sound (full pic tho). Couldn;t change the channel or do anything with it. Turned it off and on again and now all ig et is 88:88 with all three of the LEDS on even the talkback one.

Has it gone for good? i can't get in eng mode, i can't do owt with the card in or out.

Whats next???

Can i try anything? Has it updated and screwed itself?

My 4000 pace is working as normal - and i even plugged the original box in just to test and after that worked fine, although it did a lot of scrolling through numbers upto 1500 and then eras and flas were shown on the display, which i can only assume is some sort of update.

Can i do anything to get the 1000 back up and running?

It's the atmels on the main board that are likely to be the problem, not the ones on the simm.
