Default LRP Pulsar Competition Charger Problem!

I was wondering if anyone has had this problem or if there is a way to reset the unit.

I have 2 of these chargers now with the same problem and are useless.

The display freezed up and I cannot go through the menus and access any function or make changes. I can hit the Start/Stop button and it will charge at some setting that includes Flex charging mode. Not good for NiMH batteries, so I shut it off immediately and it's useless to me.

So that is 2 Pulsar Competitions that may be junk now. This is not the version 2 model.

Any suggestions? I am not interested in sending it away for repair.

Default freeze up in flex mode

There is no reset.
You have to send them to calif. for repair.
Actually they could not repair mine so they sold me a new one for like $30.
Mine did it while charging a new pack & fried it so If you didn't ruin any batts ---lucky.
Assoc was good about getting back to me on the phone when it wasn't repairable and sent replacement right away.
