A factory reset is the last resort that you can use to fix your TV. It actually sounds strange, but sometimes, for example, when your TV encounters a software or hardware failure, a factory reset is the best way to make it work.
Of course, this is an extreme measure, which shouldn’t be used without a strong reason. However, if your TV is lagging, this is the best way out.
What is Samsung TV factory reset
We don’t notice it, but every day we put a lot of information into our devices, as well as changes. At some point all of this can lead to your TV, as well as any technique, starting to lag.
A factory reset deletes all user data, additional apps, and resets settings to default. However, data on other media (such as USB sticks, external hard disks, and memory cards) is not deleted, so you have nothing to worry about.
Factory reset can be necessary in many situations. The most common is a TV problem. However, you may also need to factory reset your Samsung TV if you just want to clear it of unnecessary data or preparing the TV for sale.
The main thing you should understand is that a factory reset should be done with caution, as it deletes all the data on your Samsung TV.
