Factory Reset wont work...Manual reset?

I can go into menu and navigate to factory reset, but nothing works.
Is there a way to fix this, or a manual reset.

Other problems:
1. the tv has shifted lines of viewing (not sure how to describe)
2. glitches, it some times will freeze for a fraction of a second, you can still watch but its not perfect
3. My parent code is locked, and I never set a code. Is there a administrator pass code so I can change the level.

Thanks to anyone who can help.
This tv has been nothing but trouble since I got it.

Re: Factory Reset wont work...Manual reset?

Your tv might be in showroom mode. Use the remote to open the main menu, go to picture, go to mode, go to power up and make sure that home is selected and not showroom. Many of the controls are disabled in showroom mode.

Lg: 60ps60c closed caption is greyed out and I cant turn it on. How can I fix this issue?

Try a factory reset to it, and check. There are two types of reset to TVs. The first is simple to do; a Hard Reset. The other is somewhat skilled; is a Factory Reset (System Reset). To make it a hard reset, just unplug the TV from AC mains wall socket, and re-plug it back after 15 minutes or so. If you do this by overnight is better. This procedure will make it a hard reset. If you want to make it a system reset [Factory Reset]; you have to enter its service mode option, and select the factory reset option. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts. Surf the site with patience.
Service mode entry, adjust and exit procedure to many popular brand TVs are given. Never forget to exit the service mode, after all adjustments have been done.

Resetting the TV
If the buttons on the remote AND the buttons on the TV case do not work (channels do not change and you cannot open or navigate the menu), the TV has stopped responding. Reset the TV as follows:

Some TVs have a reset button. If available and accessible, try using the reset buttons before using the steps below. Using the reset buttons can save time.

1. Unplug the TV power cord from the power outlet.
2. Unplug any connected devices (DVD, Set-top boxes, etc...)
3. Press and hold the TV power button for five seconds.
4. Plug the TV power cord back into the power outlet and turn on the TV.
5. Open the on-screen menu to confirm that the TV is responding again.
6. Turn off the TV and reconnect the devices.
7. Turn on the TV.

hope this may help;

The television stays in closed caption mode regardless of the settings. Is there a way to reset it to factory default

try turning off the caption through the remote of the menu. to reset it to factory settings, go to menu, then settings, then there should be an option to reset the tv. If this doesn't work look through your manual. Sometimes you have to hold the power button for some length of time or the menu button on the tv. if these methods don't work, tell me the model and make of the tv.

Problem on polaroid 04011c not shoving menu display or volume or eny command

Does your set respond to the controls on the set itself?

If you, are you able to access the setup menu to perform a factory reset?

If so, press menu, navigate over to setup, then choose reset defaults, to see if that improves your situation.

I hope that helps.

Magnavox tv not responding to remotes

I came accross this question, because I've been looking for the remote code for my cable remote. I had originally put the TV remote somewhere in a box when I was moving years ago, Since my cable remote changes the channel, I've been doing the same as you all this time. Therefore, I totally understand your frustration on trying to understanding how to navigate within the menu: It's not what you would think would be a standard or logical way....

Anyway, in my research, I did come accross the TV manual, and I found the instruction on how to reset the TV. I tried the steps, and THEY"RE STILL confusing, so I've added my own hints....hope this helps:


Your TV can be reset to the factory settings in case you forget your Smart Lock password, or want to change the picture, sound, or features settings.

1 Press the MENU button on the remote control to see the onscreen menu.

In the left panel, you will see four icons (from top to bottom)

  • TV INSTALL (a tv)
  • PICTURE (icon of film)
  • SOUND (a piano)
  • FEATURES (icon of pliers and a hammer)

When the Menu screen is showing the left panel as highlighted light grey, the Chanel buttons have Page up/Page down Functionality

2 Press the the (CH UP) or_(CH DN) buttons to highlight the FEATURES menu.

Navigate to the FEAUTRES menu (icon of pliers and a hammer - bottom of left panel) and you should make sure it is highlighted in blue

3 Press the (VOL+) button to enter into the FEATURES menu.

The right panel should now be highlighted in a light grey

4 Press the (CH UP) or (CH DN) buttons to highlight the FACTORY SETTINGS control.

This will select items in the right panel, FACTORY SETTINGS in on the bottom

5 Press the the _(VOL+) or _(VOL-) buttons to reset the TV to the original factory settings.

6 Press the MENU button repeatedly to clear the menu from the screen.

The entire manual is found at this link:


BTW, of any one know how I can program or get an RCN remote to use on this TV, please let me know!!!!

I have the toshiba 42hl167 and the volume is not working. only works with play station. cant here cable or bose system.

I would reset the factory defaults on the TV, but some complicating information follows these instructions:
Reset Factory Defaults
To reset all settings and channels to their factory
default values:
1 Press Y and open the Setup menu.
2 Highlight Installation and press T. A new set of
Installation menu icons will appear.
3 Open the System Status menu, highlight System
Information, and press T.
4 Press C c to scroll through the menu bar to select
Factory Defaults.
5 Enter your PIN code (or 0000 if no PIN code has been set).

Because the PC and HDMI-1 inputs share the same set of analog audio inputs, the PC Audio menu setting influences the HDMI 1 Audio menu setting. If PC Audio is set to “No,” the HDMI 1 Audio setting changes to “Auto.” If PC Audio is set to “Yes,” the HDMI 1 Audio setting is set to “Digital” and is grayed out in the menu. (Also see item 5 on page 12 of manual and “Setting the HDMI™ Audio mode” on page 43 of manual).

There is also some good information on pp.20-22 and 54-57 of the manual - this one has a lot of audio hookups and settings.

I had this problem as well guys. Just found a fix thought i'd share.

I simply went into menu>setup>reset . This will perform a factory reset, and you shouldn't have that K or the volume problem anymore.

I tried all the fixes involving volume- input- nothing worked. I tried volume- ch- but that K never changed colours.

It all came down to a simple menu option reset.
