No software update


No, I did not carry out any software updates (firmware). The NAVI03 just simly stopped working and it is stuck in "´nitializing..." forever.

I replaced the DVD-ROM unit suspecting that this was the problem, but did not help.
I didn't want to change the laser only, thus replaced the DVD-ROM unit of the navigation.
This didn't solve the problem.

The DVD is also stucked inside and will not eject. I removed it manually by removing the fron cover carefully and pulling out the DVD disk.

It is interesting to note the follwing:
- The "Initializing ..." message is there even if there is no DVD in the NAVI03 unit !
- This means that I can not even attempt to update the NAVI03 firmware to V32 (latest version)
- The red beam light from the MOST (visible at the plugin entering the NAVI03 unit) is coming to the NAVI03, means there is no break / bridge of the MOST bus (fiber optic loop).

Any hints / help from the experienced users on the forum are appreciated !
