Use your TV remote controller to head to Settings.
Scroll down and select Device Preferences.
Scroll down and select Reset.

Use Volume Buttons To Reset Hisense TV

All you need to do is press and hold the Input and Volume Down buttons for 30 to 45 seconds and see what happens.
If the TV restarts and it goes to set up screen, it means your Hisense TV has factory reset successfully.
Power Cycle Hisense TV To Fix Problems
There must be a definite reason why you are trying to factory reset your Hisense TV. In most cases, people factory reset the TV when it fails to perform as expected or experience a problem.
Many people, including me, have managed to fix a lot of problems by simply power cycling the TV.
Power cycling or soft reset is a process in which we drain residual power left inside the TV and turn it on again. The whole process takes less than two minutes, and it won’t result in any data loss.
So let’s see how to power cycle your Hisense TV:
Unplug the TV.
Locate the power button of your Hisense TV.
Press and hold the power button for 30 to 45 seconds. (Press the power button on your Hisense TV and not the one on the TV remote)
Plug the TV back in and turn it on.
Now that you know the exact location of the reset button on a Hisense TV, you may go ahead and use it to factory reset your TV in less than two minutes.
Factory resetting the TV will help you to fix a lot of problems like a black screen, the TV turning off and on continuously, etc.
As the reset button on a Hisense TV is nothing like a regular button, it can be something new for a lot of people, and they may find it difficult to locate the same. I hope this guide has helped you in finding the reset button on all Hisense TVs.
