I don't remember the procedure, but figure out how to do a hard reset (maybe hold down the power key for 10+ sec).  If it's like the FC-2500, the OS is on a Read-Only-Memory chip and will reload after a hard reset.  Then you can download from Topcon whatever version of TopSurv or Magnet that you have a license for if you still need to reload the software.  I often managed to lock my FC-2500 up so severely that I was sure it was FUBAR.  A hard reset always fixed it.

holding down the on/off button is not working. Any other suggestions?

There should be a manual just for the FC-2600.  If you don't have one, visit Topcon Support and download one.  Figure out how to do a Hard Reset.

On the FC-2000's I think there was a hard reset button which you would press with a ball point pen in the battery compartment. Have a look in the same location for it.
