Default Is there a way to reset the FBW system?

So I was messing around with the FBW by variously turning sping mode to VRILL, FBW gain mode to the lower position, and flipping on FBW channel 5 (which I don't think does anything).



I landed and then tried everything I could think of to reset the FBW system (which mostly consisted of shutting down and restarting the aircraft) but I end up with MAN, DOM, and BECS caution and warning lights. Is there any way to clear these lights and rest the aircraft for another flight?

I think manual says that certain reversionary settings 5th channel FBW, etc. are irreversible. That's why I thought about repair.

Spin switch though should be perfectly reversible, right?
