How do I reset my LG smart TV?

Answered by Jason Smith

To reset your LG smart TV, you can follow these steps:

1. Start by pressing the Smart button on your remote control. This button is usually located near the center or top of the remote and is often represented by a colorful icon.

2. Once you’ve pressed the Smart button, you’ll see a menu appear on your TV screen. Look for the Gear or Settings icon in the top right corner of the menu and click on it. The Gear icon is typically a small image resembling a gear or a cog.

3. After clicking on the Gear icon, a new menu will open with various options. Look for the General option and select it. This option is usually represented by an icon that resembles a folder or a file.

4. Inside the General menu, you’ll find a range of settings related to your LG smart TV. Look for the Reset to Initial Settings option and click on it. This option is specifically designed to reset your TV back to its original factory settings.

5. Once you’ve selected the Reset to Initial Settings option, a confirmation message may appear on your screen, asking if you’re sure you want to proceed with the reset. Read the message carefully and make sure you understand that resetting your TV will erase all personalized settings and restore it to its default state.

6. If you’re certain that you want to proceed with the reset, confirm your decision by selecting Yes or OK on the confirmation message. Your LG smart TV will then begin the reset process, which may take a few minutes to complete.

7. During the reset process, your TV may turn off and on multiple times. This is normal and part of the reset procedure. Avoid interrupting the process or turning off your TV manually as it may cause issues or incomplete reset.

8. Once the reset is complete, your LG smart TV will restart and display the initial setup screen, just like when you first purchased it. You’ll need to go through the initial setup process again, including connecting to your Wi-Fi network and signing in to your LG account if necessary.

By following these steps, you should be able to reset your LG smart TV and start fresh with the default factory settings. Remember to back up any important data or settings before resetting, as the process will erase all personalized information.
