958 will not exit initial screen

I have a 958 ci and when I power it up, I can't "Exit" the initial screen. Any suggestions?
Thanks in advance,

Is this a new unit and installation or have you been using it on this same boat?
Is this the first time since winter storage that you used the unit?
How is the unit connected to the battery?
Do you know of anyone else with one of the larger Humminbird unit (800/900/1100 series) that would let you test your unit on their boat?

Sorry for the delay and thanks for the response. It seems as though I have solved the problem.
Cause:
I have a 958 mounted in the bow panel and a 998SI mounted in the dash. Covers for units that are mounte this way cannot "snap" to the units so I put velcro on the unit/cover. Upon removing the cover, I inadvertantly pulled the "face panel" off. When snapping it back on, two of the buttons were caught on the face causing them to be activated.
Solution:
Work the activated buttons free from the cover

Sometimes we do bone head things and if we cut some of the trees down we can now see the forest.
Again, thanks for your response!
