How Do I Reset SHIELD TV to Factory Settings?


A reset to factory settings should be used only as a last resort when troubleshooting. All personal data, files, settings and installed apps will be removed and cannot be recovered.

Also, please note that in order to connect your controller or remote after a factory reset, the on-screen instructions will not be valid. Instead, follow these instructions: http://shield.nvidia.com/connect.

NoteNOTE By performing a factory data reset, all data will be wiped from your SHIELD TV.  Data associated with your Google account can be recovered.  Any device settings will also be removed.

NoteNOTE For SHIELD TV Pro, full reset may take up to 2 hours.  All personal data will be erased from the 500 GB hard drive.

  1. From the Home screen, scroll down and select Settings .

  2. Under "Device," find and select Storage & reset .

  4. Then select Fast Reset or Full Reset depending on your preference.
