Pix 501 not responding

I have Pix 501 which I rest to factory default. After reset,  it stopped  responding to https://192.168.1.1. I tried connecting it using Hyper terminal, but no response. How do I make it work?
Thanks.

well it may have just died I would see if you can open it up and reseat the memory modules ect and such but if you can't even get to ROMON then there is most likley a bigger problem.

Do a complete poweroff

unplug cables and plug then back again

Check your connectivity whether cables are fixed properly

That's not good....

is this under contract or purchased recently?  Sounds like the flash is corupt and the ROMON is not even taking over.

No, it is not under any contract. It is old. So you meant, there is no remedy?
