How to reset Vizio TV: Soft reset

When you experience some glitches with your Vizio TV, always start with the soft reset. It is all pretty simple. Do not turn off your TV using the remote, just unplug it from the outlet and leave it like that for about a minute. Plug it back in. Usually, this simple trick is all that is needed so make sure to try it out.

How to reset Vizio TV: Factory reset

If you tried the soft reset but it didn’t fix the issue, here is how to perform the factory reset.

  • Press the menu button on the remote control
  • Next, navigate to System
  • Select Reset & Admin
  • Select Reset to Factory Defaults

When the process is completed, your TV will be returned to its original settings. It means that all of the apps will be gone, and the adjustments you made will disappear as well so you will have to do it all over again. The factory reset is usually worth the effort because the issues that were bothering you will be gone.
