How to access TCL Smart TV Secret Menu?

Settings button on the remote control of a TCL Smart TV

In almost all conventional televisions and smart televisions there is a menu that is kept hidden from the user, since its use is reserved for technical personnel. This is the so-called secret menu or service menu, which contains advanced options, diagnostic tools, among other functions outside the average user.

In the case of TCL televisions, the hidden menu allows you to configure certain image or color parameters, among many other aspects, which is why it is used when there are inverted screen problems.

  1. I think you can see very well, as shown in your own picture, that the remote control contains no numbers. How am I then supposed to press 1950?

  2. Use the keyboard button on the remote to bring up the onscreen keyboard (its on top of the netflix button on mine)- I tried this and it worked fine.

  3. I change the values in the picture curve setings. It really works. But when you turn off tv and switch off then turn on again, the setings revert to its default values. Anyone who knows how to set it permanently.
