How To Reset Polaroid TV With & Without Remote?

Polaroid TV is reliable and has good audio/video quality. However, with all the pluses, the TV sometimes shows minor and major issues (which all TVs may show after some time).

The issue can be related to the screen (unresponsive or blank), slow streaming, or overheating. Whatever the reason is, resetting is your friend. It is convenient and, most of the time, effective too.

To reset Polaroid TV, open the Menu, go to Setup, choose Reset option, and press OK for confirmation, your TV will be restored to default settings.

How To Soft Reset/Power Cycle Polaroid TV

Most Polaroid TVs have power buttons on the TV panel. They are located either at the back of the TV or under the TV at the front.

At the same time, some models do not have a power button. We will tell you the method to soft reset your TV in both cases.

Soft Reset With A Power Button

If you have a Polaroid TV that has a power button, follow these steps to soft reset it.

  • Turn the TV Off.
  • Unplug it from the main power source.
  • Press and hold the power button on the TV panel for 20 seconds.
  • Leave the button, wait for a minute, and replug it in the socket.

Soft Reset Without A Power Button

In case you have a Polaroid TV that doesn’t have a power button, you can soft reset it by following these steps.

  • Turn Off the TV and unplug it from the power source.
  • Disconnect any external devices connected to the TV.
  • Wait for 60 seconds.
  • Now re-plug the TV into the wall socket.
  • You have successfully soft reset your Polaroid LCD TV.

Factory Resetting Polaroid TV With Remote

If the issue in your TV is not resolved after performing a soft reset, then you need to do a hard reset. A hard reset will return your TV to its original settings.

Factory Reset Polaroid TV With Remote

The method to factory reset your Polaroid TV with the remote that came with your TV is mentioned below.

  • Press the Menu button on the remote.
  • By using the up and down arrow keys, go to Setup and press OK
  • Then select Factory Reset and press OK.
  • Press OK again when prompted.

Wait and let the TV complete the resetting process. Meanwhile, your TV may flicker, change screen color, and turn OFF and ON again automatically.

Resetting Without Remote

Unfortunately, there is no way you can factory reset your Polaroid TV without a remote controller. This is because Polaroid TVs don’t have a reset button.

However, if your Polaroid TV is showing up a black screen, is stuck on the logo, or has sound without a picture, then try this:

  • Turn the TV Off
  • Unplug it from the main power socket
  • Unplug all the connected external devices
  • Leave it for an hour
  • Replug the TV into a wall socket.

Now turn the TV On. Hopefully, it will work fine now.
