There are at least two different resets, although I am not sure what the difference is. The normal reset is just pressing the reset button as you are already doing to power up. Apparently, there is also a more extensive reset by holding the reset button for some time. However, I have seen different durations mentioned in the forums, the shortest being 5 seconds and the longest being 30 seconds (which sound awfully long for doing a reset). I think one of the developers (Gert-Jan perhaps) mentioned something like 5 seconds not too far back, but I don't remember any details.

I suggest holding the reset button for over 5 seconds. If that doesn't solve the issue, you might try longer (until over 30 seconds). If that doesn't work, I am out of ideas.

Good luck,
Mark
