The downgrade of SmartSdr on my friend Flex 6500 has stopped and is not working. Smart SDR does not see hardware. How can I restart Flex 6500? There was a break in the LAN.

So I did. But after switching on again, the radio calibrates for a few minutes and the green LED above the power switch continually flashes.

If that doesn't clear the problem, push the power button and hold it until the radio shuts off.  Disconnect the DC power input for about 30 seconds.  Reconnect the DC and restart the radio.
