How to Reset Google TV or Android TV (Soft & Hard Reset)
There are several types of resets, but a soft reset is the simplest and most basic. You will not lose any data when you perform this type of reset on your Android or Google TV. There will be no changes or settings made during this type of reset.
It is as simple as switching off the TV and unplugging the power cable from the electric outlet to perform a soft reset. The TV should be left unplugged for a few minutes (at least 10-15 minutes) before being connected again. Upon reconnecting the TV, everything will work just fine and all apps and data will be available.
Your Android or Google-powered Smart TV can be reset easily using this method. It doesn’t matter what kind of TV you have, whether you have a flat-screen TV or a smart TV, this reset method is the same for every model and brand, regardless of what operating system it runs.
How to Reset Android TV or Google TV [Hard Reset]
It will be necessary to perform a factory reset or a hard reset when your TV is experiencing serious issues, such as sound output issues, colour issues, or even software bugs. Your smart TV will be erased after performing a factory reset, which erases all the data, apps, and accounts stored there. As if your TV had just come out of the factory, it will be reset. Installation of the apps and logging in to each account are required as well as completing the one-time initial setup.
