How to Reset a Plasma TV

Plasma televisions can project a large, high-definition image. The settings for sound, brightness, contrast and many more can be edited to your liking. If the settings have been altered so much that it would be easier to start from the beginning, you can do this. Plasma TVs have a "reset" feature to return the TV to its factory settings.
