Most TVs that are customisable allow users to set the channels the TV finds, adjust picture settings and make other adjustments that improve the viewing experience. If you plan to sell the TV or change its location, you might want to restore the TV's settings to factory defaults. Resetting an LCD TV to factory defaults might vary depending on the type of TV you own, but the general process should be similar.

Skill level:
Moderately Easy


  1. 1

    Press the "Menu" button on your remote and use the arrow pad on the remote to select "Option." Press "Enter."

  2. 2

    Use the arrow pad to select "Initial Setting." Press "Enter."

  3. 3

    Select "Yes." Press "Enter." The TV turns off and resets itself to factory defaults.

Tips and warnings

  • Instead of "Initial Settings," in Step 2, you might need to choose "Reset" or "Factory Settings," depending on the TV you own.
