    I don't have the VCR or Cable Box attached. My daughter rolled over on the remote, and the TV has been 'locked' since. The face buttons don't work at all. The only buttons on the remote that work are the display button (shows which channel I'm NOT watching), and the power button. I currently have it unplugged, hoping it will reset. I will try the suggestion below when I get home. Thanks.

Try holding the display button for 10 seconds, worked for mine, unless the vcr presents a different issue

It sounds that there is some magnet near by TV that is affecting picture tube. Please remove any extra speaker or any thing that has strong magnet inside, unplug TV for 20-30 minutes, replug back in, turn it ON, hope that will solve your TV problem.

Toshiba TV colours wrong pink sky, blue clouds and green people??


Inside your TV there is like a loop of insulated wirings the loop around the screen. This is to demagnetized the tube. There is a varistor which looks like a thick coin with two leads on it, or sometimes it looks like a flat ceramic capacitor that control this loop of wire. When you first turn on your TV current goes through the loop of wires to demagnetize the TV then the varistor shuts off. Sometimes this varistor fails, causing smeard colors. You can also demagnetize the screen without opening the TV. Using a hand held demagnetizer. It can be purchased at some electronic parts store.

Bush TV, model number RF6685VPL/A - Colours are wrong!


It seems that it is a degaussing problem. TV sets have a degaussing coil that when the TV is turned on , it automatically demagnetizes the screen. Never place any speakers or anything magnetic near or on top of your set. if you see swirls of color and like you say, wierd colors, it is that the screen is magnetized. Turn it on and off with the switch. Not the remote control. The degaussing coil only works by manually turn the switch on and off.
