Default dream box - flash erase??

Got a dreambox 500 which was working but now doesnt. Doesnt respond to any remote buttons either.

I have downloaded new files as I was thinking I would flash it again with a new image... but.... i dont know what the boxes i.p address is....
so i used dreamup.. I downloaded the latest version of DreamUp and tried with that BUT this when I connect the power cord to the box I dont even get a green light on the box....

What now? Have I blown the box?! how do i do a Flash Erase??? (someone recommended that i do that...!!)
Help appreciated. I am new to dreamboxes....

flash erase is part of the dreamup flashing process, just make sure the flash/erase box is checked....

Thanks for your help so far...

NOW - I connect to dreamup and follow instructions.

Problem is that dreamup finds the box but doesnt do anything else after that.

See image - just freeezes on that!
