AD9915 internal PLL not locked

I'm trying to use single ended source for the REF_CLK input according Figure33-c (datasheet page 21). The VCO filter is designed according the Evaluation board schematic. PLL enabled, VCO calibrated. Frequency of source is 25MHz, the N divider is set to 100 value (to achieve sysclk 2500MHz). When the EXT_POWER_DOWN pin is 1 - the bit 24(USR0 register) shows 1, but when the EXT_POWER_DOWN pin is 0 the bit 24(USR0 register) shows 0, at the output of DDS (AOUT) is the sinus signal, at the SYNC_CLK pin is signal about 150MHz(rather unstable) and the DDS case starts heating. Does anybody know why the PLL is not locked? Thanks
