from google search of yaesu ft 840 reset;


Page 13 of the user manual - you can find a copies online. Google search on "FT-840 User Manual" - many hits.

Press MEM- [Down + Up] while powering on. Clears all memories and sets all settings back to factory defaults.

VFO and Memory 1 default to 7.000Mhz LSB

Now - technically, that's not a CPU reset. To reset the CPU - power it off, count 5 and then power it on again. For memory reset - do the above. No idea if that will do anything helpful in your case or not.
