How to reset my 2016 Samsung TV?

Last Update date : Nov 26. 2021

Please note, this section is designed to give you basic product troubleshooting information, also refer to your user manual for more information.

When you perform a Factory Reset, all settings will revert to factory default. These settings include picture and sound settings, channel menu settings (including memorised channels), clock and timer settings, and other settings that you may have changed. In addition, if you had your TV professionally calibrated, you may lose the calibration settings if the calibration was not done through the service menu. 


If you simply want to reset one of the settings on your TV (i.e. picture or sound), please refer to your User Manual for steps on how to reset the individual settings on your TV. Factory reset however will not affect your Network Settings. Network settings can only be changed manually.
