Customer Question

Last night the thermostat went dark and the A/C unit would not turn on. Over night the A/C unit started working again but the face of the thermostat is blank. I just noticed at the top of the thermostat there is a message that the SW Update is trying to load. I've watched it for awhile and it keeps cycling through the update. It reaches 100%, turns off and then starts over again to update. The WiFi is turned off because that feature was something we never used. I'm not sure that we can access the thermostat any more since I cannot find it on my wife's phone. Can I do something to fix it?
