Frozen Sceptre TV how to fix. (how to restart)

1. turn off the tv (unplug if you have to)
2. hold down the S on the side of the TV.
3. While holding the S button press the power on button
4. when you see the menu screen release the s button.
5. hope for the best.

if you are in the window for a return DO IT NOW. it is a terrible TV. If not write these instructions down you will be using them alot as this tv has something wrong that makes it freeze all the time.

  1. I tried this and my tv is displaying a dim screen and won't play anything from my cable box or wii (it says program is blocked). Do you have any other suggestions? Unfortunately, I've already had my tv for over 2 years so its too late to return. Any advice would be appreciated since Sceptre isn't even open on the weekends so I can't call them! Ugh!

  8. We purchased two 32 inch Sceptre tv''s in Nov 2013. They were on back order at Walmart and we didn't get them until January 2014. Two weeks ago the first tv lost video, the audio was still fine but no picture. This week the second one did the exact same thing. If this is an example of the quality of product this company offers I would urge everyone to steer clear of this company!!! We took the TV to the repair shop and the cost to fix the TV was more than it was worth. I am never purchasing from this company again and will recommend my friends, family and neighbors to avoid them at all cost. Carolina Dotson, Fuqua Varina, North Carolina.

  9. I bought my 32 inch Sceptre TV for my bedroom it worked great for awhile till all of the sudden the picture stays on for 5 minutes and it blinks on and off on and off on and off on and off I was told that they used cheap capacitors that last just as long as your warranty on your TV does I calledcustomer service 4 times and no one has called me back if you're looking for a disposable TV that works for under a year then this is the TV for you to picture and sound was great for as long as it worked like I say it's in my bedroom so it's not even used for an hour a day for the last 9 months call the local TV repairman and all cost as much as the TV to get it fixed if that's even what the problem is ready to call the Better Business Bureau as I've seen hundreds of complaints of the same nature maybe you should spend $10 more for Quality capacitors stead of ripping people off with a disposable TV that won't last you a year like I said good luck with customer service they will never call you back I have been on hold for hours left voicemails and no one even bothers to contact me
