Re: smart remote not powering on

Anyone have this problem recently?

Re: smart remote not powering on

I'm having the the same problem but I can't get the remote to turn on at all to do the reset. I do fish salt water. Please help

Re: smart remote not powering on

Just FYI.  The power and mode button is the same button.  When my smart remote locked up I held just that single button for 10 seconds and the smart remote reset itself.
