How to Reset a Mitsubishi TV

By Kristan Hart

It happens with computers, cell phones and even televisions--when problems surface and you're not sure how to fix them, a simple reboot often takes care of the issue. Mitsubishi televisions require a reset occasionally to help reboot the system and get everything back in working order. To make the reset process as easy as possible, Mitsubishi provides a button to allow you to reset the system at any time, or you can reset the audio/video settings so they return to factory settings.

Things You'll Need

  • Mitsubishi television remote control

System Reset

Step 1

Open the front panel by pushing on it. Pressing on the panel releases the lock and allows the front panel to pop open slightly. Pull the corner gently to open the panel completely.

Step 2

Use a pointed object, such as the sharpened end of a pencil or the tip of a paper clip, to push the "System Reset" button.

Step 3

Wait about one minute, or until the green LED light on the front panel display stops flashing.

Step 4

Turn your television back on once the green LED light turns off.

Audio/Video Reset

Step 1

Open the front panel by pushing on it. Pressing on the panel releases the lock and allows the front panel to pop open slightly. Pull the corner gently to open the panel completely.

Step 2

Press "Guide" and "Format" on the front panel at the same time to erase all of your settings and restore the factory default setting to all of your audio and video menus.

Step 3

Access the "Audio/Video Menu" through the television's "Main Menu" to reset audio/video settings one at a time. Select "A/V Memory Reset" then choose the settings you want to reset.
