    Ok..
    Does the control panel have a bezel round it ?
    If it does, using a finger nail or similar lever it off
    There are a couple of screws holding the panel to the wall
    Remove those
    Lift the panel away and look for a multi plug ( has maybe 12 + wires in.. never counted them ! )
    Unplug that and leave for a couple of minutes
    Plug back in and give it a try

    There are three different types.. Two of them have little retaining clips on them so make sure:
    Any clips are free
    And ( this might sound odd ) ensure you are actually pulling it the right way
    On one of the panels the pins are at right angles to the board and while it looks like the plug pulls up and away it actually pulls along the board ( if you see what I mean ! )

    You could try ditching all the batteries but that does not usually reset the controller

    Just pulled up the installation info..
    Coming off the panel is the data cable which winds its way to the main controller
    It is usually a black wire
    Whip the front of the box and look closely
    If I remember rightly all the plugs are marked
    Find the one that is the data lead and unplug it from the main board
    Should have the same effect as disconnection it from the panel end :)

    There are many on MHfun that make the fee worth while, this is just another example, hope it all works out for the Mogs, lovely folk.

    ........edit......and I wrote all that before I knew that it worked, well done John @Jaws, have one for me Mogs.
