Hi Darren,
My name is Randy.
I am sorry to hear this happened to your Hiachi TV. Unfortunately, there is no reset for this television other than unplugging it. If there is a glitch in the TV unplugging and replugging will solve the problem, since the unpluuging did not not help this means that there is an internal failure.
The most likely cause is a failure with the power supply, The cost to repair is around
$200.00.
If the problem is more serious, then repair will be more than a new TV.
I am sorry about this, please let me know if I can help further.
