On the back of it is a reset button, you may need a paperclip and with it on, push in the reset button for 10 seconds then release.
Wait 5 minutes, then power off your TV, power it on and tell me if you still have the issue please.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Just when I thought iit had worked it switched off again Is the reset button a red button - I tried pushing that in but couldn't move it so turned the on/off button off - is that correct?
No, its the red button, you need to use a paperclip to push it in and hold it for 10 seconds.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
No still not working - I pushed the paper clip right in & there seems to be a button a long way down - the cover of the button disintegrated - hope that was right
yes thats correct, but you do not just push it you hold it in for 10 seconds.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
As I said the top of the button broke and I pushed the paper clip as far as pos for 10 secs
ok, your last message was only that you pushed the button, hence why I clarify needing to do it for 10 seconds.
