Promised crystal clear picture quality provided by the Ecostar TV brand is genuinely a catch, and so is the price range. However, there are some rare yet common issues that a few Ecostar TV users have faced.
These problems include a blank screen, the appearance of lines on the screen, or a noisy/snowy picture. Most of the time, the issue is not with the hardware; instead, it’s the software or settings of the TV that are messed up.
Clearing the cache of the Ecostar TV or factory resetting it to its default settings can solve such problems around 90% of the time.
To factory reset Ecostar TV you need to open Menu > Settings > Recall > OK. This will restore your television to original default settings.

You must perform a soft reset on your Ecostar TV before you go for a factory reset. If that didn’t help, move on to the hard reset. Here’s how you can restore your Ecostar TV to its default settings:
- Switch ON your Ecostar TV.
- Locate and press the “Menu” button on the remote.
- The TV menu will appear on the screen; select the “Gear” icon and press “OK.”
- Now, you need to scroll down, select the “Recall” option, and press “OK.”
- Once you do that, it will restore your Ecostar TV settings to factory settings.
When the TV reboots, you can simply set it up again and start afresh.
Even though this factory reset method will work on almost all the Ecostar TV models, it’s good to know another way to carry out the reset. Here’s what you need to do:
- Switch ON your Ecostar TV and grab the remote.
- Now, press these buttons in a sequence; Menu, 8, 2, 0, 2.
- The service menu of your Ecostar TV will appear.
- Here, you need to look for the “Restore to default” or “Recall” option, select it, and press “OK.”
- The TV will reboot, and it’ll restore your Ecostar TV to its original settings.
If the mentioned code doesn’t work, you can also try pressing these buttons in sequence in order to open the service menu; Menu, 2, 0, 0, 8.
Factory Reset Ecostar TV Without Remote
Ecostar TVs don’t come with a reset button which means you can only use the button panel on the TV to navigate through the menus and restore your Ecostar TV back to its factory settings. Here’s how to do it:
- Switch ON your Ecostar TV.
- Press the “Menu” button from the button panel.
- Now use the “Volume up & down” buttons to scroll through menus. Enter the “Gear icon/settings” option.
- Now, select the “Recall” option and press and hold the “Channel Up” button to confirm the reset.
You can also get a universal remote or install the Ecostar LED TV remote app on your mobile. These two options are easier to use as you can even use the second method when using any of them.
So, if you can buy a universal remote, go for it. You’ll need an IR blaster-enabled phone for using the app, which might not be the case on many mobile phones.
