You can reset some models.... depending on gas control valve and FVIR design.
Some newer models you replace the sensor located on outside of tank.

FVD interface failure is flashing. How do I reset the water heater?

Is it flashing 2-3? Try this: You can reset the control by unplugging the blower during start up, leave unplugged for at least 5 seconds, plug back in and within 30 seconds cycle temp control from hot to low 6 times.

No hot water, unit will not fire,

It sounds like the Flame vapour sensor has tripped. Have you been painting in the basement recently or have and pait thiner, bleach or any other flamable material in the same room?

You will have to air out the room for at leaset 24hrs to get the fumes out and then try reseting the tank. If this doesn't work you need to call in a service technition to reset the FVIR sensor
