I've had a few display glitches recently as mentioned in other recent posts.

There seem to be three ways of resetting / restarting the display software:


  1. Stop and restart engine
  2. Press the Mute + Navigation + Return buttons at the same time for 10s
  3. Select Factory Reset from the System Menu

How do these differing methods operate to reset the system software?

Not sure but IMO,
1. Is akin to putting your computer in sleep mode, it shuts down but saves the main OS to memory and shuts down. Upon start it just takes 10s to boot everything back up.
2. FULL restart, meaning it completely halts all processes and reboots the OS. Takes about 1 minute to boot.
3. (NEVER PERSONALLY USED IT) Probably just restarts OS with fresh settings.

I could be wrong but thats what I've experienced.

Thanks - it might be worth me trying Option 2. Do I keep my personal settings with Option 2?
