Cannot start Management Central server

I was trying to access Management Central in iSeries Navigator and received the following error:  failed to connect to central system 'Iseries.istate.com'.

After clicking on Verify Connection, i received two failed messages:
   - the Management Central server is not running. Open Management Central in iSeries Navigator to start the server.
   - could not verify Java setup. Failed to create a Java Virtual Machine.

After following the instructions under 'Details' for those two errors, as well as following the troubleshooting guide on IBM's website <http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/iseries/v5r4/index.jsp?topic=/rzaih/rzaihtblshtmcconnect.htm>, the Management Central server just won't start. To start it, I am simply going to My Connections; Iseries.istate.com; Network; Servers; TCP/IP, right click Management Central and select Start.

We are running V5R3M0 on a 520. If any other information is needed to help solve my dilemma, I will gladly supply it.
