How to Discharge Your Television

Over time, a residual electrical charge can build up in your TV resulting in some funky glitches. Discharging your TV drains the charge and resets the main board. In other words, if something really weird is happening, try this. With the TV on, unplug it for 30 seconds, and then plug it back in. After you plug it back in and turn it on, everything should be back to normal.

If this doesn't fix the problem, please contact us.
