Frequently Asked Questions

Will resetting my Hisense TV erase data?

Yes, depending on the option you choose, resetting your TV will erase the data. If you choose the ‘Factory Reset’ or ‘Erase all’ option, then all your data will be lost, and you will have to set up your TV again. However, if you choose an option that says ‘Reset TV Audio/Picture Settings,’ then only the relevant settings will be reset to default. 

What is the difference between a soft reset and a factory reset?

A soft reset is the one where you reset the TV and don’t lose any data. Meanwhile, a factory reset is also known as a ‘hard reset’ as it reboots your TV, erases data and goes back to the default settings. 

Where is the reset button on the Hisense TV?

Usually, the reset button can be found on the back or side of the TV. It is a tiny button, and you will need a paper clip to press it. Check near the HDMI or USB port.
