You’re lucky to have a Hisense TV remote because, with a remote, you can easily reset the TV in a few seconds. 

But remember that Hisense TV comes in different OS, and the resetting process will differ for each one.

For your ease, we have divided this section into three parts. I will share the reset process for Android TV, VIDAA, and Roku TV. So keep on reading.

The Hisense Vidaa TVs offer a user-friendly interface. But unluckily, this OS is more prone to bugs and software issues. That’s why you may need to reset the TV to fix all these bugs.

Method 2: Use Volume Buttons 

Use Volume Buttons 

Hisense TV has a dedicated physical button, so you can use them when the TV remote leaves you. 

The location of this physical button may vary from model to model, but most of the time, you will find them below the Hisense TV. 

Here are the step to rest the Hisense TV using those physical buttons. 

  • Use the volume button on Hisense TV to navigate through Settings
  • From Settings, go down to Device Preferences
  • Scroll down, and tap on Rest
  • Tap on “Erase Everything”

And that’s it, and now the Hisense TV restarts automatically. 

Method 3: Reset Your Hisense TV With Your SmartPhone

Imagine controlling your Hisense TV with a smartphone, and it’s incredible. While having a phone, you don’t need to invest in a new TV remote. 

A bundle of remote control apps is available for Hisense TV on Android and iOS devices. But we still recommend downloading “TV Remote – Universal Control.” This app immediately connects with the Hisense TV.

Open the app, and it will automatically search for the Hisense TV model. Make sure that the smart TV is turned on. Also, turn on the BlueTooth on your phone. 

Once the phone is connected to the Hisense TV, you can control it easily. 

Again, go to Settings > Device Preferences and rest the Hisense TV from there.

How To Soft Reset Hisense TV

how to soft reset hisense tv

Before trying to do a factory reset on Hisense TV, give it a try to soft reset. The soft reset or power reset will clear the cache and power build-up from the TV and solve the picture and software-related issues. 

The good news is power reset won’t delete data from your TV, and it’s a quick process to solve the firmware-related issues. 

Here are the steps to soft reset Hisense TV; 

  • Keep the TV on, then remove the power cord from the switch or outlet. 
  • Now leave it for 1 minute. 
  • After a minute, press and hold the power button of the TV for 30 seconds. 
  • Now plug back the power cord into the switch. 
  • This will probably solve the picture or firmware-related issues. I recommend you try this method 2 – 3 times; if the first attempt fails, the second or third will work.


I hope you have now understood the way to reset Hisense TV. In most cases, the factory reset will resolve the firmware, picture, and sound-related issues. 

Moreover, the factory reset also improves performance and cleans the memory. But the method wipes out all the data from Hisense TV. 

In the above article, I have mentioned two ways to reset Hisense TV; without a remote and with a remote. So if your Hisense TV remote is broken or lost, you can still reset the TV within a few minutes. 


Can I reset Hisense TV without a remote

Yes, you can reset Hisense TV without using a remote. There is a physical reset button behind the TV; press and hold that button for a few seconds until the TV restarts. This will bring factory settings to Hisense TV. Secondly, you can use a virtual remote app on your phone to control and reset your Hisense TV.
