Did you use the correct cable to the modem?
Did you tried make a cross E1 cable?

Please provide me the following:
sh controller e1
sh int ser 1/0:1
1st try cgecking if the card is responding or not by using a loopback E1 cable
as the following:
1st RJ    2nd RJ
 1               4
2                5
4                1
5                2

the check controller up (looped) or down by sh controller e11/0

if up,, then double check the cable pinout between the router E1 and the modem,,

if you are using SHDL modem then the pinout will be :

RJ-45 Pin (on T1/E1 PIC)             DB-15 Pin  

1                                                                      11        
2                                                                       3        
4                                                                       9        

5                                                                       1
