imageI have Flexradio 6300 and buy Maestro now.

    Hi Pat

    You may have to reboot it a few times.  Power off the Maestro (long hold of the power button) and then restart it.

    I'm sure you have done this at least once.  However, try it again.

    As Mike said hold the power button past where it says to swipe down to shutdown. Continue holding until the Maestro completely shuts down and the lights go off. You mention battery is fully charged but did not mention if you have the AC adapter plugged in. Make sure it is plugged in and providing 12 volts to Maestro. Dave wo2x
