    In a nutshell,

    1. Run the battery dead.
    2. Recharge the battery.

    There's more to it than that. Read the links spinnerlys posted.

    I know there's more to it than that - that's why I said "in a nutshell." It means "this is a very simplified summary."

    Besides, the OP didn't ask for three posts full of nothing useful but links, the OP asked a simple question. I gave a simple answer.

    If you're trying to start a pissing contest, take it elsewhere - I'm not interested.

    The links provide all the correct answers to the OP's question. There are already too many who mistakenly think that simply draining and recharging the battery is calibration. It's not a pissing contest. It's about posting factual information.

    Except nobody posted any information - just links. Nice cop-out.

    It makes no sense to type the same answers to the same questions over and over again, when posting a link will lead the OP to all the information they need. If you don't want to click and read, that's your choice. The links were posted for the OP's benefit, not for yours.
