Bootup fail? You could try reseating the os chip.

Open it up, take a picture of the circuitboard.

Any leaking capacitors? I had a problem with my PX-7 crashing, one of the capacitors was leaking. Replaced it and it's good as new.

Found a solution in the XL-7 Yahoo-forum.
A guy with the same problem pulled out the Composer ROM and put it back in. That works for him. Also for me. :banana:
