There is nothing to reset on this amp, it has no microprocessor.
Resets for electronic equipments are for clearing any software glitches that the microprocessor uses to do complex functions. I have only seen microprocessors in a couple of Kenwood amplifiers, and I have fixed many Fosgate amplifiers including this model. If you are not gettng any sound from it, you may have a blown channel. It is the most common failure I have seen in these. If that is the problem with yours, you need to take it to a service center that works on Rockford Fosgate amps, they have output transistors that are mounted on what is called a "mesha rail" and you can not change out just the 1 or 2 that are shorted, you must replace the entire rail because the transistors can not be removed from the rail and there are no generic parts for them as well.
I hope this helps you with your problem, deciding what you can do with it. It is a very good amplifier and in most cases it is worth the repair cost. You can not get a different amplifier of the same quality for less than the repair cost which usually runs about $125 at my shop.
Let me know if I can be any more help to you.

the problem is mostly with your audio side of the amp. i have a 800 Rockford punch series amp hooked in series running at about 15 vdc at 2 ohms stable for now. but the amps left front power side transistors overloaded and smoked out, i will be replaceing my mosfets soon. Now on that side your issues apear to be related to the signal side of the amp. when you hooked the amp up tell me breifly did you hook the rca inputs to the back of the sterio and did you select the proper rca inputs for the amp? also note that amps have a potentiomater that can be tuned up or down to allow the volume or wattage to go up or down threw the system. if it's turned all the way down you'll here nothing. but often you'll get a pop sound or quickly see the speaker move a bit. this indicated the signal side of the amp has signal comming in but no output, just look for a turnable small screw inside the amp top or side. and turn up acordingly. note: to much output will damadge your system. not just the amp. ;)
