Unhappy 2009 Driver Station Issue

We're trying to fire up the old '09 robot for a demo, and having some trouble. With the DS (2009) tethered directly to the cRIO, we get a strange assortment of "#" signs on the bottom line of the DS screen. The "Status" line changes from "Enabled" to "Teloperated" to "Watchdog" rapidly, spending most of it's time in "Teleoperated". We're getting good communications and a battery voltage readback, but we have no control whatsoever.

Using a laptop, we can ping the cRIO and have reset the team number on the DS to work with the cRIO configuration ( for cRIO, Team Number 125 for the DS). With a laptop plugged into the DS, we get no response pinging, even after setting the team number correctly.

Finally, there is a red light on the PD board at a terminal pair to which there is no load attached or breaker installed. According to the datasheets, the red light only comes on when there is a load connected and the break is not installed. Could this be a related issue?

Does anyone have any suggestions? Due to some personnel change and inherent loss of documentation/code, re-imagining the cRIO or dropping new code on it has to be the final last resort.

As a corallary question, does anyone have a copy of the DS firmware that was handed out during inspection at the regional?
