How to Reset a JVC TV without Remote

Although JVC started as a company that builds radios, it has become one of the earliest brands to sell TVs in Japan. Today, JVC has several types of televisions in its catalog. These products include UHD, HD, Android, QLED, and Elite UHD TVs.

If you own any of these devices, a simple reset can keep them in top shape. Now here are different ways that you can perform a factory reset on JVC TVs without the controller

How to Soft Reset JVC TVs

Before you restore a JVC TV to its original settings, consider performing a soft reset. After all, a factory reset can wipe out your settings, applications, and other data. If you want to start a soft reset, use the following steps :

  • Move to the power outlet and take out the plug of the JVC television
  • Keep the JVC TV unplugged for 30 seconds
  • Insert the TV plug back into the socket.
  • Check if the problem persists.

How to Perform a Hard Reset on JVC TVs

If a soft reset does not solve the problems on your JVC TV, you should perform a hard reset. As hard resets can wipe apps and customized settings, you will have to repeat the setup process especially after completing the reset.

With a remote, it is easier to carry out this process. But since you don’t have this device, the following steps can allow you to perform a reset on a JVC TV.

  • Remove the JVC TV from the power source
  • Wait for 10 seconds before returning the plug into the socket
  • Plug the JVC TV back into the power outlet.
  • Hold the Menu and Volume Down button for another 10 seconds
  • Press and hold the Power button before removing your fingers from the Menu and Volume Down buttons.

How to Factory Reset a JVC Smart TV

Apart from HD TVs, JVC offers an amazing range of smart TVs. As expected, these products offer incredible pictures, sound, and other features. If a JVC Smart TV has a glitch, there are different ways that you can reset its functions.

(1) Perform a Soft Reset

As with most TVs, you can perform a soft reset on your JVC Smart TV by unplugging the device from the wall. Then wait for 30 seconds before replacing the plug into the socket.

(2) Perform a Hard Reset

Did the soft reset solve the problem on your JVC TV? If not, consider using the hard reset option. To avoid any issues with the device drivers, experts recommend that you have the latest firmware on the TV before using this method.

Since you are performing a hard reset without a remote, you will have to download and install a mobile remote app. Then use this app to access the Settings menu on the TV.

Here are the various steps for resetting a JVC Smart TV with a mobile app

  • Head to the Google Playstore or App Store
  • Search for the “Universal TV Remote Control” app
  • Install and download the app
  • Open the app and choose “JVC” from the drop-down menu. If you don’t feel like scrolling, type “JVC” into the search bar.
  • Follow the prompts to complete the setup process.
  • Hit the Menu button on the on-screen.
  • Go to Settings -> Systems -> Advanced System Settings -> Factory Reset -> Factory Reset Everything

(3) Reset the JVC TV via the Customer Care Centre

If you can’t use the earlier mentioned ideas to reset your JVC TV, you can seek help from a JVC customer care center. Even if this reset method looks simple, it can provide you with tips for restoring your TV to its original settings.

Start by writing the model number of your JVC TV. Then contact the center and ask for advice on how to reset its functions. If possible, you can also request a replacement remote for the device.

(4) Get a New Remote

Although these ideas can restore the settings on a JVC TV, they might be tedious for some users. So instead of using an app or removing the plug from the wall, consider getting a new remote. If you can’t find a JVC model,  try sticking with a universal variant from a trusted brand.

When Should I Reset My JVC TV?

If your JVC TV has some issues, you can use a reset to solve them quickly. Now here are some problems that can be handled with a reset.

(1) Black Screen

As you watch a JVC TV, you might get sound but no pictures. When you have this issue, try a soft reset by unplugging the TV for 30 secs. If you still have the black screen, perform a factory reset.

(2) A Stuck Logo

It is normal for the JVC logo to appear on the JVC TV. But if it stays stuck, you cannot use the television. Luckily, a reset is ideal for clearing the symbol.

Final Words

JVC TVs are perfect for viewing different types of content. But if they have minor problems, you can use a reset to improve their functions. Most times, a remote control enables users to perform this task.

If you don’t have a JVC controller, disconnect the TV from its power source. Then wait for some minutes before turning on the TV. Besides, you might download an app, contact a customer rep or get a new controller.
