  3. Leave the battery pack out of the unit for at least 10 seconds.
  4. Replace the battery pack. Line it up within the battery compartment and push it back into place.
  5. Put the battery compartment cover back on by sliding its tabs into the slots on the unit. Push the cover back into place and tighten the screw with the Phillips screwdriver.
