There's a Reset button at the back. Press it for 7-10 seconds and release.

Not so much a button as a hole in the back – look for the "Reset" label – that you can attack with the end of a paperclip.

 

Press it with the power on.

 

 

Just another user.

That's still a button, placed in a hole. When you push it, it makes contact
