Encountering data corruption on your Android TV box can be a frustrating experience, leading to issues such as the device displaying a data reset screen and refusing to turn on. However, there is a solution that involves connecting a mouse or keyboard to your device and performing factory data reset. In this blog post, we will guide you through the steps to fix data corruption on your Android TV box and restore it to its factory settings.

Step 1: Connect a Mouse or Keyboard:

To navigate the data reset screen and perform the necessary actions, you will need to connect either a USB mouse or a keyboard to your Android TV box. Ensure that the mouse or keyboard is compatible with your device and connect it to one of the available USB ports.

Step 2: Access the Data Reset Screen:

Once the mouse or keyboard is connected, power on your Android TV box. You should now see the data reset screen. On this screen, you will typically find options such as “Wipe data/factory reset,” “Factory data reset,” or similar phrases. Use the mouse or keyboard to navigate and select the desired option.

Step 3: Perform the  Factory Data Reset:

Among the options presented on the data reset screen, look for the second factory data reset option. This option is specifically designed to address data corruption issues. Select this option using the mouse or keyboard.

Step 4: Confirm the Reset:

After selecting the second factory data reset option, you will be prompted to confirm your decision. The confirmation message will typically mention that all data on the device will be erased. Carefully review the message and ensure that you have backed up any important data. If you are ready to proceed, confirm the reset.

Step 5: Wait for the Reset Process:

Once you confirm the reset, your Android TV box will commence the factory data reset process. This may take a few minutes, so be patient and allow the device to complete the reset. It will automatically reboot once the process is finished.

Step 6: Set Up Your Android TV Box:

After the reset, your Android TV box will be restored to its factory settings. You will need to go through the initial setup process, similar to when you first acquired the device. Follow the on-screen instructions to select your language, connect to a Wi-Fi network, and log in with your Google account.

Conclusion:

If you encounter data corruption on your Android TV box, causing it to display a data reset screen and not turn on, performing  factory data reset can often resolve the issue. By connecting a mouse or keyboard to your device and navigating to the second factory data reset option, you can initiate the reset process and restore your Android TV box to its factory settings. Remember to back up any important data before proceeding. Once the reset is complete, you can set up your Android TV box and enjoy its functionality once again.
