There are times when everything seems to be a mess with your LG Smart TV and the only thing left to do is to reset the device to its factory default settings. By doing so, you can eliminate petty issues with cache, cookies, browsing data, storage, and even network errors that contribute to the awful experience you might endure.

But keep in mind that it’s not all good benefits for you. In exchange for a fresh start, you will lose all your settings including logins to your installed apps, downloaded content, and even your wifi password. You will need to re-enter this information again after a hard factory reset on your LG Smart TV.

However, if you have made up your mind, and are ready to take the plunge, here are the steps to reset your LG Smart TV to factory settings.
