Sounds like you need to jtag it, but these clone 500's are cheap as chips and almost throwaway when they go wriong

It might be more cost efefective just to take it up the local tip and give it a decent burial in the electronics scrap bin.

Make sure you use a null modem cable not a standard rs232 other wise it won't connect
