Factory Reset procedure for c95/c97/c125/c127/e7/e7D/e95/e97/e125/e127 MFDs

If you are experiencing problems with your c95, c97, c125, c127, e7, e7D, e95, e97, e125, or e127 Multifunction Display (MFD), then performing a Factory Reset may restore operation of the display.  It is also necessary to perform a Factory Reset operation after having updated a MFD's software.  The procedure for performing a Factory Reset follows:

IMPORTANT: Back Up your waypoints, routes, and tracks to a CF memory card before the Factory Reset.

When a Factory Reset is performed, the action will cause all waypoints, routes, tracks to be erased from the MFD’s memory.  Doing so will additionally cause all configuration settings to be restored to the factory default settings.  As such, it is recommended that all waypoints, routes, and tracks be archived to a microSD memory card and that the MFD's configuration settings be backed up prior to resetting the MFD.  Please seeAnswer ID 1488: Backing up waypoint, routes and tracks on c95/c97/c125/c127/e7/e7D/e95/e97/e125/e127 MFDs and Answer ID 1492: Backing up configuration settings on c95/c97/c125/c127/e7/e7D/e95/e97/e125/e127 MFDs for complete instructions.  It also be advisable to note any configuration settings that you have modified in order that the display may be reconfigured with these settings following the Factory Reset operation.  Following the Factory Reset operation, the waypoints, routes, and tracks may be retrieved from the archive file stored on the CF memory card.
