... there is a contact area that, if you complete the circuit (short with a small pair of tweezers (one tine on the battery, one on the contact area)) it acts as a kind of reset (it's a small round area off to the side of the battery)... and this should set things right (you'll have to reprogram the thing though). This works on my Accurex Plus... and might be true of yours too...

We abide.

Depends the old ones say push all the buttons at once and hold and it will do a global reset. Not sure about the new ones. I just replaced my battery last week and it works fine.
