Yes. It means you need to call and get it replaced. If you look closely
at an Alp as it initializes, I think you will see it displays a "1" briefly
and then displays an "8". I suspect that the microprocessor has failed to
boot. My first one did that the second day I owned it, and Swissmar was
VERY prompt about replacing it... shipped the replacement by second day air
and issued a call tag for the old one about a week later.
A small ray of hope, though.... the unit suddenly recovered the next
morning and worked OK after that but I swapped it anyway.
