Leica GPS900 radioproblems, system last used 2008

I am setting up this discussion for one of our members from North Carolina, who is in Kuwait. He is Kevin Hollar, and kevin is on a project where he was                               given a hand- me -down LEICA GPS900 RTK system. Plus it hadn't been turned on since 2008. Kevin has charged every thing and let the receivers set outside for about a hour to update, and has * attempted to soft boot or reset the receivers.

It appears that the base and Rover established a solid green light ..ready for RTK. it appears that the base radio is transmitting, * it has a solid red light.

After that things stop, the rover radio, controller, and Rover GPS will not provide a solution..fixed solution. It's like the rover radio is on a different channel. * question how do you check the channels, the contectiveity, and the position values?

Anyone with that can assist in trouble shooting this system with us or thru comments will be greatly. We're going to try this again in the morning,        6AM 2/242012 EST..Kevin is 8 hrs ahead of us (2PM)  

we will be on the Surveyor Sky Lounge .....

Thank you.

 * Questions:

1. How to reset the receiver?

2. How to check the UHF/VHF channel position in software, and check to see that both are on the same channel?

3. What are the lights doing on the base radio, and the rover?

      Good afternoon dear colleagues, I apologize, I have used all my professional life instruments Wild -Leica, and due to the terrible economic crisis that crosses my Country and although I know that it is not the right thing, I have no alternative to being able to update my equipment that is not operational since July 2014, since I could not update the ME firmware running version. I ask with much respect and waiting for your highest consideration, I would like to see the possibility that a colleague can send me the firmware file ME3.FW Version: v3.823, I have many problems with my instrument and my Leica distributor in my country, unfortunately, it has not been able to solve me, we are here in Venezuela experiencing a terrible social, political and economic crisis, that is why I appeal to you and your generosity, I do not have the financial means to pay for a firmware update Currently, I hope you understand me and can help me, thank you and may God bless you.
      Pedro.
