MD1600: Factory Reset

If you would like to Reset your MD1600 back to its Factory Settings, meaning the original settings the device shipped with or how it was set up when you first installed it, please follow the steps below: 

On the back of the MD1600, near where the power cable connects, there is a small pinhole outlined in red that says Reset above it. You will want to use a pushpin or paperclip, something long and narrow, to hold down that Reset button for 3 seconds. The Power LED will turn orange and remain orange for about 1 minute. After that minute, the Power LED will turn green, indicating the unit is booting back up and has been reset to factory settings, meaning all prior configurations will have been erased. 

If the Reset button is held down for 10 seconds or longer, the Factory Reset will not initiate. In, this case, the Power LED will remain lit orange for a few minutes. If this occurs, press the Power button on the side of your unit to power it down, wait about 30 seconds before powering it back on. When the Power LED turns green, go ahead and hold down the Reset Button for 3 seconds to initiate a proper Factory Reset.
