Feature display is scrolling on tv and can't get it off.

I have an old LXI television manufactured in 1990 and somehow my 1.5 yr old pressed a button and it is displaying all the features of the television on the screen they glide down it one after another as if it is in the store waiting to be sold on display. Do you have any idea on how i can get it off? I have tried every button on the remote some are worn off so I don't know what I am pushing and it seams like this happened once before a long time ago and I was able to get it off by something real simple but I can't seem to find the solution.

My ECCO tv is locked<

Toshiba's Panel Lock feature allows you to save your settings on your television so that no one else may change them and only the On/Off switch may be utilized from the TV's front panel. Parents may find this option useful to prevent children from accessing programs containing violence and other inappropriate content. Once you turn this feature on, certain steps must be followed to turn it off again.

1. Press the "Menu" button on the remote control, and scroll until you come to the "Preferences" menu. Select "Parental Control and Locks," then press "OK." If your TV does not have a "Preferences" menu, go directly to the "Locks" menu.

2. Enter the four-digit PIN that you selected when you turned the Panel Lock feature on. You may have to scroll up or down to access this area.

3. Press the "Up" or "Down" buttons on the remote until you reach the Panel Lock feature. Move the cursor to select "Off," and press "OK."

LXI TV-menu options keep scrolling. How do we stop this?

I believe pressing the VOLUME UP and VOLUME DOWN buttons at the same time is what puts the set into demo mode. (It might be CHAN UP and CHAN DOWN at the same - been so long I'm not sure, but I think it's the volume buttons.)

It's definitely not convergence. Sounds like more of a problem in the horizontal section.
