Received my 3500STB today and started configuring it. Unfortunately, I appear to have gummed things up when I changed off the "NTSC" option in the menu...now I see nothing once the splash screen disappears. The LED display on the front of the unit changes to "boot", but my TV shows nothing. Is there a way to reset the unit to the factory defaults, short of doing a firmware update?

Thanks all!

Not sure you can do a rest on it. But this might help some.

Does the display ever show numbers after you turn it on? If so try this

turn on and wait till you see numbers on display yes this well be with out a tv.

now on remote hit menu.
then hit right arrow 1 time
then hit down arrow 3 times
then hit left or right arrow and give it a few secs if done right should be back to ntsc

Thanks troydog....that's what I ultimately fumbled around with and got things back to normal. Now that I've learned not to muck with too many of the settings, it's working well with the new Terk antenna and I'm just about ready to cut the cord with my cable TV provider.... smile.gif

Your welcome and so happy you got it working. My tvs one walmart other projector do run pal why I have no ideal. lol But I was also thinking they should add a way to rest the box from the front or there might be a way to no ideal on that.

IVIEW 3500STB Reset
 
Thanks so much for this info as my 3500 is now working again. This sequence reset my box to NTSC and allowed access to the menu. Too bad they don't provide such help in the instuction manual. I have also used the unplug the unit to reset the box in cases where it hung and would not respond.
