Is your tech in need of troubleshooting? Or have you just messed with the settings beyond repair? Factory-Reset.com will show you how to get it back to its out-of-the-box state.

No matter what trouble your tech is giving you, when all else fails, a factory reset can at least get you back to square one. Most gadgets these days have an easy method for clearing all your settings back to factory status, though they aren’t all obvious. Some gadgets (like routers) have a reset button on the back, while others (like TVs or Blu-ray players) might require a specific combination of buttons. Instead of searching everywhere for your device’s manual, just head to Factory-Reset.com, plug in its model number (or search by manufacturer) and you’ll have easy-to-follow instructions right there. It’s a Wiki too, so if your device isn’t listed, you can add it yourself — though it already has quite a few devices, including 84 models and brands of TV, 53 models and brands of DVD player, as well as DVRs, AV receivers, GPS units and much more.
