Customer Question
Thermostat says: Sreen locked...

Thermostat says: Sreen locked. How can I unlock it to change temperatures? Thanx, B.H.

Contractor's Assistant: Just to clarify, do you think this is a larger HVAC problem, or something specific to the thermostat?

HVAC is probably not involved, I just cannot adjust settings.

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Yes.

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

As soon as I touch 'temp' botton screen says 'Screen locked.
