Just had a thort. If another unit was plugged in and then uploaded the stock map would it take a life off the other unit?

Try searching for info on the OBD fuse - this can blow sometimes and then you either get an error on the DS unit or no power at the port to power up the handset. Wild guess says fuse 15? reckon it will be one of the ones behind the glovebox rather than in the engine bay but I may be wrong.

EDIT think Orangeman's got the info for you

Find another fuse in the fusebox the same size, that covers something not important and swap that one for now to get the car up and running. Also check in case there's any spares in the fusebox in the engine bay. Probably not but worth a look.
