How to Reset Samsung Tv

Sometimes your Samsung TV may develop glitches or get stuck in a strange setting. A reset can often resolve these issues, restoring your TV to its factory default settings. Here are the methods to reset your Samsung TV:

Soft Reset

This is a simple “power cycle” that’s a good first step:

  1. Turn off the TV: Use your remote or the TV’s power button.
  2. Unplug from the wall: Disconnect the TV’s power cord.
  3. Wait a minute: Allow time for any residual power to dissipate.
  4. Plug back in: Reconnect the power cord.
  5. Turn it on: Your TV should power up normally.

Reset through the Settings Menu

If a soft reset didn’t do the trick, try this:

  1. Hit the Home button: Press the Home button on your remote.
  2. Navigate to Settings: Select “Settings”.
  3. Choose Support: Go to the “Support” option.
  4. Self Diagnosis: Select “Self Diagnosis”.
  5. Find the Reset option: The exact location might vary slightly based on your TV model, but you’re looking for “Reset”.
  6. Enter your PIN: If you haven’t changed your PIN, the default is 0000.
  7. Confirm: Follow the on-screen prompts to confirm the reset.

Important Notes:

  • A reset erases settings: You’ll need to re-adjust picture/sound settings and reconnect to your Wi-Fi after a reset.
  • App logins: You’ll need to sign back into any streaming apps after a reset.
