I had been trying to fix my TCL TV for weeks. It had been acting strange, not allowing me to enter the settings, and I couldn’t figure out what was wrong with it. I tried every troubleshooting solution I could find online, but nothing seemed to work.
Then I decided to dig deeper and find the TV’s reset button. I Searched online for a manual or a diagram but couldn’t find anything that clearly showed where the button was located.
I decided to take matters into my own hands and start looking for the button myself. I examined the TV carefully, looking for small buttons or hidden compartments. After about 5 minutes of searching, I finally found it!
When should you consider resetting your TV?
Before getting started, let’s go over some common reasons for resetting a TCL TV:
1. Fixing errors or problems:
2. Returning to factory settings
If you have made personalized changes to your TCL TV’s settings and want to return it to its original factory settings, resetting the TV is the way to do it.
3. Preparing to sell or give away the TV
If you plan to sell or give away your TCL TV, resetting it will help you to erase all of your personalized settings and restore the TV to its default factory settings, making it ready for its new owner.
Where is the TCL TV reset button?
The location of the reset button can vary depending on the model of your TCL TV. Here are some general guidelines:
- On most TVs, the reset button can be found on the back of the TV, near the power or input ports.
- On some newer TV models, the reset button may be located on the bottom or side of the TV.
Remember this: If your TV is in restricted mode and you have forgotten the password and your TCL TV does not have a physical reset button, the only way to exit this mode without the password is by replacing the board on the TV. In this case, contact with TCL customers care.
