How to Reset a Polaroid TV

Updated November 21, 2016

Occasionally, your Polaroid television might require a reset due to screen settings, parental control settings or other software-related issues. Resetting the television restores the factory defaults of the TV. There are two ways to reset a Polaroid television. Both should correct any non-hardware related issue. For issues of a hardware nature, contact Polaroid.

Turn on the television and press the up or down arrow keys on the remote control until "Reset" is highlighted. If you do not have the remote control, press the "Menu" button on the side of the television and use the channel up and down arrows to navigate to the "Reset" option.

Press "OK" on the remote control or press the "Input" button on the side of the television to select the "Reset" option. You will have to press either of these buttons again to confirm your intent to reset.

Wait while the television resets to the factory settings. The screen will change colour a few times and eventually return to the standard "On" mode.

Reset the Polaroid television manually by turning the TV off and unplugging it from the wall outlet. Disconnect any external devices such as gaming systems or DVD players. Leave the television off for a few minutes. Plug it back in. Wait another minute and then turn on the television.

Warning

Contact Polaroid if these reset procedures do not work.
