      Thanks Mark. I did check them and they are in where they should be. It was working for about fifteen hours before I noticed the led was red. The xtal is most likely gone if that is the problem. Am trying to find a place to get another one but not having much luck.

      Todd,

      Make sure that C15 & C16 are installed correctly. They should be
      installed parallel to U2 (processor). When I built mine, I got them
      in wrong and it was nasty trying to get them out and reinstalled
      correctly. Mine wouldn't run at all with them in wrong so this may
      not be your problem.

      Mark

      Check the crystal and the capacitors next to it, as well as the two
      resistors (100k and 10m, I think) nearby. Make sure the leads are
      nice and short, and that there's no flux or anything between the pads.
