If you are wondering where your Hisense TV reset button is, then you are not alone. Whether you have the Hisense VIDAA OS TV or Hisense Roku TV, I am going to show how to locate the reset button.
In some Hisense TV models, you may not even find the reset button. In such models, I will also show you 3 alternative ways to reset your Hisense TV if you can’t find the reset button.
For various reasons, you may need to reset your Hisense TV using the reset button. It may be because the remote control does not work, because the remote is lost or there’s a black screen on your TV and so don’t have a way to access the settings menu.
That said, let’s get into it!
Where is the Reset Button on Hisense TV?
On the Hisense TV, you can find the reset button in a hole at the back of the TV labelled “RESET” close to the HDMI port. This is located at the left side of the TV if you are facing the TV on Hisense Roku TV models.
That said, here’s how to reset your Hisense TV using the physical reset button:
- First, you will need a pin or any tiny object to push the button.
- Once you locate the reset button, press and hold the button firmly for about 10-20 seconds while your TV is on. When it shuts down, keep holding down the reset button until it powers on and shows the Hisense Roku TV logo again. Then, you can release the reset button.
- When the factory reset is complete, the TV will reboot twice and finally turn on without turning off again by itself
- Now, go ahead and set up your Hisense TV again – select language, select mode of use, setup network connection or skip it.
Just like that, you have successfully located and reset your Hisense TV.
I Can’t Find a Reset Button on My Hisense TV
On some Hisense TV models, you may not find the reset button. For example, the Hisense TV models 65h6570G (2020) with Android OS, Sharp Hisense LC-75Q7570U (Android) do not have a reset button.
If you need to reset your Hisense TV to factory settings and there’s no reset button, there are 3 ways to go about it:
Alternative Reset Option 1: Try a Soft Reset
I do not know exactly what issue it is you are trying to troubleshoot on your Hisense TV that requires you to reset it. However, I do know that a lot of the issues on Hisense TVs can be fixed by performing a soft reset (also known as a power cycle).
Whether you are unable to access the settings probably because your TV is showing a black screen, is stuck in reboot loop or won’t turn on at all and keeps flashing red light, a power cycle has proven very effective several times.
This is different from a factory reset (hard reset) in that all your apps, settings and configurations will not be deleted.
That said, here’s how to power cycle your Hisense TV:
- Turn off the TV
- Unplug it directly from the power outlet (make sure to unplug it, otherwise it’s not a power cycle)
- Leave it unplugged for 60 seconds
- Plug it back into the power and turn it on.
If the issue is fixed, great! You no longer need to reset your TV to factory settings. Otherwise, check out these Hisense TV troubleshooting guides to find other fixes to the particular issue you are facing.
Alternative Reset Option 2: Use Input and Volume Down Button to Reset
If you can’t find the reset button on your Hisense TV, locate the Input button and the Volume button (combination to reset to factory default on some models).
Press and hold the ‘Input button’ and ‘Volume down [-] button’ for 30 seconds, then release them.
This will reset your Hisense TV.
Alternative Reset Option 3: Reset from the Settings Menu
If you can’t find the reset button on your Hisense TV, then the only way to reset it is to use the settings menu.
However, if you are looking for the reset button on your Hisense TV in the first place, it’s probably because you are unable to use the settings menu for whatever reason.
This could be because the TV remote is not working, the remote control has been lost, your TV keeps rebooting by itself even before you get to the settings menu, it is stuck on logo screen, it shows a black screen, your TV won’t even turn on at all (or maybe even keeps flashing red light).
If any of those sound familiar, you can fix the issue by checking the troubleshooting guides that I linked to above. From there, you should be able to access the settings menu and reset your Hisense TV easily.
if the remote does not work, you can try fixing it quickly or getting a replacement remote. To fix it, try replacing the batteries in the remote as they may be weak. If that doesn’t work, remove the batteries and press all the buttons on the remote multiple times (this will help fix any stuck buttons). Then, place the batteries back into the remote and try using it again.
That said, here’s how to reset your Hisense VIDAA TV and Hisense Roku TV:
Hisense VIDAA OS TV:
- From the home, click on the Settings icon
- Next, click on Device Preferences
- Scroll all the way down and click on Reset
- Click on Reset again and finally click on Erase everything to confirm it.
Hisense Roku OS TV:
- Click on Home button on Hisense Roku remote
- Scroll and select Settings
- Select System > Advanced system settings > Factory reset
- Enter the code displayed on the TV and click on ‘OK’
Hisense TV reset button can be located at the back of the TV in a hole labelled “RESET” close to the HDMI port. If you are facing the TV, this is often at your left side on mots Hisense TV models.
However, you may not find the reset button on some Hisense TV models. In that case, you can either try a soft reset and see if it fixes whatever issue you have on your Hisense TV. To do that, turn off your TV, unplug it from the power outlet and leave it unplugged for 60 seconds. Then, plug it back into the power outlet and turn it on.
If a power cycle does not fix the issue, the only way is to perform a hard reset from the settings menu on the TV.
- To do this on Hisense Android TVs (VIDAA OS), go to Settings > Device Preferences > Reset > Reset > Erase Everything.
- To do this on Hisense Roku OS TVs, go to Settings > System > Advanced system settings > Factory reset
