This is a common issue but one that is very easy to solve! Just leave it plugged in and allow it to run and it will time out. It may take up to 30 minutes but it will time out and reset. There is no damage that will be caused or anything else you will have to do, it just has to time out. Once it shuts off and resets, you will be good to go!
