How to Reset a Westinghouse Remote Control

A Westinghouse remote control is used to control Westinghouse televisions. Using the remote control, the user has the ability to change channels and volume as well as access the main menu, which allows you to change and adjust settings. If, after troubleshooting, the remote control is not working correctly, it can be reset. Resetting the remote restores the original factory settings to the remote. If resetting the remote doesn't correct the remote, it may need to be replaced.
