How do I reboot or reset a LabQuest?

Original LabQuest
This information pertains to the original LabQuest.
If you have LabQuest 2, see LabQuest 2 FAQs

There are several ways to reset the LabQuest. Try these steps in the order listed below.

1. Reboot: For a low-impact restart, tap the Home icon on the toolbar at the bottom of the screen, select Control Panel, and then select Reboot.

     If the screen is not responding, use Home hard-key and arrow keys to navigate to Reboot.
     If the unit does not respond to the hard keys, continue to step 2.
     If the hard keys respond but the screen is not working, try recalibrating the screen, seeTIL 1776: My original LabQuest screen is unresponsive or acts like I am tapping on the wrong spot.

2. Hard Reset: If you have attempted a reboot and the unit is not responding, perform a hard reset. For detailed instructions, see:      TIL 2433: How do I perform a hard reset on my LabQuest unit?

Note: Do not use a Hard Reset except as a last resort such as when both the screen and hard keys are not responding. This is equivalent to turning off a computer by yanking out the power cord instead of shutting it down.
