Wait, you are reading this article means you are having trouble finding that button? Right?
Well, even though every Onn TV model features this physical reset button, some lack it.
However, there is an easy way to overcome the situation where your TV doesn’t have a reset button but needs to be reset without going to the settings.
Let’s dive in…
Where is the Onn TV reset button located?
Typically the reset button on an Onn Roku TV is located at the back of the TV, near the power or input ports. But in some newer and even older models, this is located on the bottom or side of the TV.
The appearance and location of this button may vary depending on your TV’s model, but it is usually a small button located somewhere on the back or side of the TV.
Note: If your TV is in restricted mode and you have forgotten the password, and it doesn’t have a physical reset button, the only way to exit this mode without the password is by replacing the TV’s board. In this case, contact Onn customer care.
