3. Press and hold down the power button for about 10 seconds, until you see both LED lights on the top of the robot blink orange and the robot shuts down

4. Turn the robot on.

5. Repeat 2-3 times if necessary.

 It is important to connect your mobile device to the robot during the hard reset, because often the hard reset prompts the firmware update process. The firmware version must be up to date for a seamless robot-mobile device interaction.

If the marker hasn't been used for a while, and would not turn on even after the hard reset, it may also require a firmware update.

After you perform a hard reset, you may need to re-pair the markers to the base.
