Last night I was playing with the remote for my GE Guide Star Television. I made the screen totally black by lowering the colors etc. I accidently dropped my remote and the TV turned off. So now when I turn it on I have a black screen because I cannot see where I am in order to get back to the menu to fix the screen. Please advise me on what to do. Is there a reset button or something I can press to make the screen go back to its original way?

Re: A BIG PROBLEM
I hope this is the case, some tv's have screen and focus controls accessible from the back ,you can't miss them as you look at set from the back they should be in the right side,if you have access to them turn the bottom one to the right and remember how much you move it,this will aloow to see soemthing in the screen so you can put everything back to where it was,when you are done the picture will look too bright with lines the you turn the screen control to the left to make it perfect.You dont have to remove the back cover.I hope it works.

Had the same problem, channels would not stop scrolling.
It was as though someone had there finger on the channel up button.
Disconnected the sixth wire, starting with the black wire on the wiring harness for the front buttons, on/off, ch. up/down, vol. up/down, etc.
It works fine, no more unwanted channel surfing!!
Try the reset on the remote. Press this key twice to restore factory settings. The TV will automatically start Channel Search and clear all customized settings. These features will automatically reset:
? Picture/Sound Adjustments: Color, Tint, Contrast, Brightness, Sharpness, Color Enhancer, Tone, and Surround Sound
? Channel Memory
? Audio to Stereo
? Caption to OFF
? V-Guide to OFF
? Aspect Ratio to 4:3 (normal)
? Menu Language to English ? Sleep Timer (if previously set)
? Video to TV (if previously set) If desired, personal settings can be made again using the menu options
