Archer 1 and Archer 2 'Soft Reset'

1. Introduction

If problems are experienced during the use of the field PC, such as an error message or the field PC freezes, a safe option is a ‘Soft Reset’.

If the field PC fails to operate after a soft reset, a last resort is to start again with clean and fresh field PC by returning the device to factory state.

Please consult Soil Instruments as your fault maybe simple and easily resolved without completing a factory restore.

2. To complete a ‘soft reset’ please perform the following steps: 

Press and hold the power key for 3 seconds to display the power menu. 

You can soft reset the field PC by selecting the ‘Reset’ option from the power menu.

The field PC will switch off and after a few seconds reboot and restart.

The soft reset is now complete.
