  • While still holding down these two buttons, you also need to press the “POWER” button on the TV.
  • When you do this, the blue light will light up. Don't let go of the buttons yet; you need to wait for 10 seconds.
  • After ten seconds, you can release the “MENU” and “VOLUME DOWN” buttons while still holding down the “POWER” button.

Before jumping on to the reset steps check the following things:

However, if there is no problem with the cables or connections, grab your remote and follow the next steps.

Dynex TV Troubleshooting Tips

If your Dynex flat-screen TV isn't broken or damaged, but you are still facing issues, then troubleshooting should be helpful. These troubleshooting tips will solve any minor trouble:

  • If your Dynex TV doesn't have any sound, check the sound cord. See whether it is plugged in the right port properly or not.
  • Also, check the outlet and see if it's working or not. Lastly, don't forget that sometimes a channel itself does not have any sound, so try checking different channels as well.
  • If the visuals of your TV are too dark, then you need to check the color saturation and adjust it accordingly. You can also try adjusting the contrast and brightness.
  • The snow or unwanted noises are usually caused by some problem in the cable or antenna. Try fixing them, and the problem should definitely go away.
  • If the image on your Dynex TV is dotted or has any lines on it, you should try moving the TV away from any noisy place, especially traffic noise.
  • A double image display can be fixed by using a better-quality cable or antenna.
  • If you want to reset the parental control password, then go to the parental control settings and enter 9999. This way, you'll be able to set a new password.
  • Lastly, if the buttons on your Dynex TV stop working, unplug the power cord for at least 60 seconds. Plug it back in the socket, and the buttons should work just fine.

  1. I have tried every youtube video to fix my problem but nothing works. I suddenly have a NO SIGNAL button on the DYNEX tv and my fire stick remote is not working any longer. I can’t get to the Amazon set up screen – it is just a black green with that error message. I tried a factory reset – not sure if that happened, but nothing is getting rid of that message. The wifi is fine – tv and remotes were all working yesterday. Literally have been working on this for hours and now I’m in tears . Please help me

  2. I’ve tried your hard and soft reset, carefully following the instructions. Nothing. The screen doesn’t even register as being on at all. What now?!
