Large displacement calculation - "Solver failed"

Hi

 

I'm running a linear static analysis for a relatively simple contact problem. I've tried running linear analysis without "large displacements", but it suggests that "large displacements" is needed. If I force linear analysis to complete, I get some unexpected large displacements:

 

 

However, if "large displacements" is used, I get the "Solver Failed" error. I've tried non-linear analysis, but that fails too. Anyone know why this is happening?

 

I've attached the assembly and some result files.

 

Thanks
