But have they tried unplugging it and plugging it back in?
This was due to a ton of gyroscope failures wasn't it? It technically worked fine before, but its readings of position and speed were totally off. Hopefully it can last us at least a few more years before those gyroscopes totally kick the bucket.
When in doubt, reboot box. A similar fix of just jiggle it saved the voyager probes as well. These may be space probes millions of miles away but machinery can sometimes be fixed using just the same things you do down here.
