First thing is to check your mains voltage. A lot of the electronic stuff will default to 'PF' below a certain voltage. Also, unplug it, leave it for about an hour and try again. Often, that will "reset" the electronics. Beyond that, you've got to get into the "check 15 billion things" frame of mind and work through the tests. Or there's always THIS solution......

Pure interest...are you in a rural area with a questionable power supply (fluctuating voltage)?

The Mad One is on to something. Though, I would suspect urbanized power systems as being dirtier than rural ones due to the preponderance of harmonic-inducing equipment, such as computers. The only way to know for sure is to measure it with a power quality meter-- they're expensive, too. Most power companies will do this on request, but you need to be very persistent and persuasive!

I, and many others, would advise the use of a surge protector/line noise filter on any microprocessor controlled machine. It's cheap insurance and will likely save you many hundreds of dollars in parts and service costs.

You also may want to leave it unplugged when not in use. That way that board isn't powered up 24/7

IMO.... it's a toss up between the Calypso and Catalyst for the biggest POS on the market. It's a shame because people paid good money for these stinkers.
