Been there myself. Worried that I messed something up in my Falcon. Awful feeling considering how much the machines are worth nowadays, and how hard/expensive it is to get parts for it. But the feeling of relief when you realize that the problems was just a glitch is just as incredible! :lol:

Glad you got it back up running! Happy times!

Closer investigation has revealed that the culprit was... the keyboard, or better said naked keyboard (no protection foil on its PCB...)
Your not alone... That catches me out when doing booster work, can cause all sorts of odd faults when keyboard sorts out on various bits.. then I spend the next 2 hours wondering how the hell I killed the booster when I haven't :roll: :lol:
