With the receiver powered up, press and hold the reset button here with a thumb or index finger for several seconds. This starts a factory default hard reset, when the pilot lamp near it turns orange.  Factory default reset is complete when the light starts emitting an orange, gradually strengthening and weakening light pattern.
