StJude Neurostimulator won't run stimulation

My St. Jude neurostimulator won't run my stimulation programs. It turns on fine, the window face of the remote is perfect with the icons, and how the power shows it is going to begin to amp up, but then just before it gets to the vertical graph, where it will start its climb, it falls away and vanishes.

I have tried new batteries in the remote, getting my implant battery fully charged, and trying to find possibly a reboot series. On my Boston Scientific neurostimulator remote, I can hold down two buttons to do a reboot. I had to call customer service once and one of their representatives walked me through it. I have been up all night trying to get it to work; no luck yet.

I have had my St. Jude neurostimulator only since 2011, it is a occipital/frontal unit used for migraines. The Boston Scientific is in my cervical spine, and manages pain in my neck and shoulders. It is also really lessening the pain of my migraines due to the damage in my neck causing nerve issues for up above. The two companies worked well together for me, and still do. They have changed my life.
