How To Retune A Hitachi TV: Retune Your TV With This Easy Guide

Are you trying to watch a program on your Hitachi TV but the picture is unfocused and blurry?

You are probably needing to retune your Hitachi TV, so your reception gets refreshed, and your screen stops presenting you with a distorted image. A retune can be completed by rescanning for the available channels, and saving them on your TV.

Before you retune your Hitachi TV by completing a factory reset, you may want to try a soft reset first, as this will not erase any of your saved data already on your Hisense, as opposed to completing the factory reset, otherwise known as a ‘hard reset’.

A soft reset requires you to remove the plug of your smart TV out of its plug point in the wall and to wait around a minute or two before plugging it back in.

A hard reset has a few more steps to it;

Step 1. Click the ‘Menu’ button on your remote control

Step 2. Click on the ‘Settings’ option

Step 3. Press ‘System’ and then ‘Advanced System Settings’

Step 4. Find ‘Factory Reset’ and press this option

Step 5. Now click on ‘Factory Reset Everything’

Step 6. Confirm this action

The factory reset will now be complete.
