When Should I Reset My Hisense TV?

Resetting a Hisense TV restores it to its default settings while ensuring optimal performance. Before hitting the reset button on your device or mobile app, you should look out for the following issues.

A Firmware Update

If you performed a firmware update on your Hisense TV, it would help if you tried a factory reset. When it comes down to it, the newly installed firmware can mess with the operations of your device. For instance, the TV might go off from time to time or even permanently.

Picture without Audio

Does your Hisense TV offer images without sound? If yes, you can remove the plug from the power source. Wait for a few minutes and re-plug the TV. If you have the same problem, perform a hard reset via the Reset button or the mobile app.

Flickering Screens

Some Hisense TVs might have flickering screens. Before taking the TV to a service center, reset the TV to solve the problem. Normally, a soft reset is enough to handle this issue.

Sound with Picture

Are you dealing with a Hisense TV with a dark screen but regular audio? If yes, you should reset the television and restore it to its default settings.

A Blinking LED Indicator

When the Hisense LED indicator blinks, your TV might have a hardware problem. As with most issues on our list, a factory reset can keep the light still.

Final Words

It is easy to perform a reset on any Hisense TV. You can start by using a soft reset or pushing the button at the back of the TV. Besides, you might even use the Hisense Remote app on your smartphone.

Even if these methods can get the job done, it is easier to use a regular remote control. If your original controller is missing or faulty, you should get a replacement remote from online or offline stores.
