Hi Tom,

Electronics Technician: Pete, Engineer replied 2 years ago

The reset button is located on the back of the receiver in the upper right corner.

Using an open paperclip, gently insert it into the reset hole to press the reset button with the receiver turned on.

The receiver should restart again with the factory defaults loaded.

Let me know if that works for you?

Pete.
