Hello, I'm Joel and will be glad to help you today.

First you can try killing the power to unit at the breaker and restoring power and see if it resets if not then it really all depends on the flash code as to what it means, the sheet I linked below explains all the flash codes and what to do to fix it. - click here for user interface codes diagnostics
