problem with Sky viewing Card



My brother has a sky card that was working on all the channel but not on the movies ppv or disney channel but it was not linked to one box. so you could put it in any sky box and it would work.
it worked for 7 months as was still working. a problem has come up with the card that was given to him by a friend who has left the country message says'' There is a problem with your viewing card Check sky card is correrty inserted Call sky for assistance.
He had two cards so i think he has dameged the chip on the card
by put it in & out. is there anyway of fixing the problem

Unfortunately if he's damaged the chip it's the end of the card. What is more likely is that the person who gave it to him has reached the end of his contract period and stopped his direct debit.
