Default Prometeia DEAD.

damn, booted the prom, it worked just fine.
I shut the system down for 10 minutes and try to reboot it.
disptemp is +5, bios -33 (so the unit works fine).

got some information on inet and tried to boot the prometeia again.
no go, got an error4 on the display, witch i did not get the first time.
this means the cooling unit malfunctions.
this sucks.

got warranty, only don't like to send it back to Denmark....
It must be the heater in the microfreezer, because I got condensation, witch I didn't got before. (again, this means my unit works).

Bummer, .... I don't know anyone having a prometheia AND being happy about it for more then a month.

Quite an investment, those things should never happen.

don't think so, but I don't care about that

just getting that prometeia back in original state will take time.

got it back to work again, only tempdisp is 36 now and biostemp -33.

it has to be the heater element that is broken, not the unit itself.

this is not to bad, only it sucks
