How do I power reset my LCD / LED or Projection TV?

    IMPORTANT: If you have an Android TV™ model, use this other article instead.

    Follow these steps to perform a power reset.

    1. Turn off the TV.

      IMPORTANT: For a projection TV that uses an internal lamp, wait 5 minutes after turning off the TV to allow the lamp to cool before continuing.

    2. Unplug the TV power cord from the electrical outlet.
    3. Let the television remain without power for 60 seconds.
    4. Plug the power cord back into the electrical outlet.

      Note: If your TV was previously plugged into a power strip or surge protector, plug it directly into the wall outlet instead in case the power strip or surge protector was causing a problem.

    5. Turn on the TV.
