Re: tv has sound, no picture besides menu options and...
You will need to have this repaired , it may only be a small component or two that are failing , but this does seem like one of the common component failures , testing and or research will need to be done

seems to me as a Sony TV. The sony tv has this feature ready in the menu. you can do zoom out ,standard etc,
But the real problem comes when the tv is turn off and then you get back to turn on the tv (lets say next day)and you find the same big heads.
what you have to do is going to the menu same thing but this time look for an option is called picture size default. This option make learn the memory what size you want custom when tv is turn on.This function is in the same page as the picture size page (refer to the user's manual) but has to be the default mode where you want the change.
The problem with sizes now days is some shows fit perfect some others not. and besides that the cable box has those features too(change size of the screen)
What i do in this sony tv to start first is keeping it in the standard size in the tv menu and i defaulted too.
when some size adjustment is needed i do it in the cable box remote control .Once again this example i do it in SONY tv, Maybe you have to post the problem again if the tv is different brand.
The blue tube might be leaking coolant in the high voltage area, that is the cause of the POP. This repair might not be a DIY because of the lethal high voltage surrounding the CRTs tubes.
The slow response from the remote could be because the coolant has affected the main board where the IR signal are going to the remote sensor.
Let me know if you require further assistance.
Disconnect it from any inputs and then try to enter the menu. Sometimes peripherals like dvd players will activate built in settings for compatability. If it persists, try working with the menu anyways, it could be a malconfiguration that is fixable through correcting the picture options, color, and sharpness.
Though I have seen a similar problem occur on a smaller tv after a lightning surge hit it. The picture was fine but the menu, channel number etc, went off screen half way. If this is the case the tv is probably ok but the controller card is scrap and needs to be replaced. I'd contact the manufacturer if it needs to be replaced they maybe able to supply you with one.
Sounds like you have a jammed / shorted out button on the control panel... Try un-plugging the tv, and then unplug the "button panel" on the front of the tv...see if you can turn the tv on with the remote. Sometimes if one of the buttons gets shorted, it will "lock" the processor from doing ANYTHING else, as it thinks you are holding down the defective button. If this works, simply have the defective switch or control panel replaced, or just leave it unplugged and use the remote only! Hope this helps!
* The TV set may be unplugged.
* A fuse or circuit breaker may be blown or switched off.
* The remote control unit (RCU) may be disabled.
* Make sure the TV/VCR are plugged in and the wall switch is on.
* Check the fuse or circuit breaker. Test the outlet with a lamp.
* Replace the RCU's batteries: if this fails exchange the unit.
