Hi, thank you for contacting My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.

You can try a reset of the console (which will erase all stored data, be warned):

Hold down 2 buttons together, the PAUSE/END button and the left-hand ^ (up-arrow),

Press ENTER (the center / START button)

Press ENTER a second time

and hold down the 2 buttons together again,

then the screen should say 'RESET CONSOLE?'

and you should press ENTER and it should say ARE YOU SURE?

then press left-hand up-arrow to select YES,

then press ENTER. And after a little, the initial screen of the console should show up.
