Default DCX2496 locked up

I have an almost brand new DCX2496 crossover.
I had used it a few times, using AES/EBU input from a DEQ2496(with a Toslink input for DEQ).
It was hard to use as the signal levels were high and there is really no way to control volume.
So I have ordered an 8 channel volume control.MSB DACs (wish it was balanced)
I was going through the setup, getting ready for use with the Volume control and the DCX suddenly locked up.
The main screen is totally white (or blue, all pixels are full bright) and the left channel input display and channel 1 output display blinks all their led's dimly on and off at about 1 Hz.
I can not get the unit to do anything else.
There was no connectors plugged into the DEQ except the power cord at the time.
I have heard that plugs on flat cables can be a problem.
Is there anything else that i should look for. A reset procedure?
I tried letting it sit, unplugged for 24 hours but it has not changed.
I have been using the DEQ since May 2012 (Toslink from Sat. Rcvr or S/PDIF from CD/DVD for input, Analog out through an ART CleanBox Pro) to a mixing board with an active crossover and I am pleased with how well it works.
I am not totally sure of the accuracy of the ECM microphone, but the DEQ is good.
It has not experienced even a slight hiccup, it works great every time I turn it on.
Any ideas, that does not involve my Redhawk 44?

Thanks in advance,

I haven't purchased a DCX2496 in years, and then always brand new for warranty. I've gotten back to back units that needed replacement. I got all too good, and tired of being a Behringer QC bunny. Good news seems that if a unit makes it past a week, it will keep on keeping on.

If your unit isn't that kind of new, best of luck. Slap it before you shoot it.

Default DCX2496 Freezes

I just found this, on this forum.
I could not find anything useful with the search function, but I Googled "DCX2496 Freezes" and was directed to a thread with a post by "Sabbelbacke" on 13th May, 2011 where he says (I did a reset when restarting, to be safe... (press both page buttons simultaniously while switching on)).
I will try this tonight when I get home.
If not, Parts Express told me to "not open it up" as this will void the warranty.
They gave me an RMA number to return it if I can not get it working.


Still accepting other advice
