WTC - Think I kill my Wild Thumper Controller

Well, I'm using a WTC just about a year. I use it controlled by another arduino via I2C, made some changes in original code to it, and ok, works very well.

Recently WTC stop receive and trasmit data, so I tried to burn the diagnostic, but I received a "avrdude: stk500_getsync(): not in sync: resp=0x00" message.

Any sketch I receive the same message. COM is correct, board type is correct, programmer is correct.

So I tried to burn program via another arduino as isp(followed this: http://www.sparkfun.com/tutorials/247), and the message became "resp=0x15"... Double checked the cable positions...

My arduino used as isp is a duemilanove clone, with ATmega328... When I try to burn the 168 bootloader via "arduino as isp" on the WTC, I get the message like "this is not a atmega 168 signature"(not with theese words).

Is there something I can do to bring my WTC to live again? I just run over ideas...
