They made the projection come on backwards. Now, I need to set it back to normal. We've tried everything we can think of in the menu screen, but it doesn't seem to work. We specifically tried the display menu, but all it did was move the projection up, down and sidways. Help!
The setting is in the Menu. It sounds like you went to the "Image" section which lets you make the adjustments you list. Try the "Source" menu, then "Mirror". That's where you will find options for Rear Screen Projection, which makes the image backwards.

You have a dangerous situation here---All modern units (Lamps, TV's, everything) Have a polarized power cord---one side of plug the pin is smaller than other side.
The large side goes to the neutral side of the electrical outlet.
One of two things has happened---either a issue with the electrical outlet which is rather rare except in older houses that have the old style electrical outlets (both pins the same size) Or someone has managed to get a cord in backwards--filed down the large lug on the power cord and put it in backwards.
What happens and can be tested is with it backwards you have "potential" 120 volts being fed back into the cable wire itself--
DO NOT KEEP CHANGING THE FUSE--a simple test with a voltmeter set to AC (wall) voltage from a earth ground (water pipe of metal will show 120 volts on the coax.
The touchy part is any set in the house misconnected can feed this back via the coax!
The cable company may be able to help or NOT> an electrician will be able.
The way I would locate this is with the volt meter hooked to the coax I would disconnect the cable feed from each set or unit in the house one at a time until no voltage reading---then you would know which is causing this issue.
Be advised it can spark which can destroy parts in any of the sets or equipment.
Kind of like if you got shocked when you touched the metal on your car.....something bad is happening.
Please if need ANY help comment here and I will assist.
Likely you tried to adjust it too far and now have a shorted convergence IC---simple way to prove or disprove:
locate and unsolder completely all the pins on both chips (most use two) and see if set comes on--will look bad but if it comes on the chips are your problem---most of these sets (like yours) also have two fuses for this--if blown set will come on so we can say they are likely ok.

What makes you think you've lost everything? Unless you specifically instructed your computer to Format the hard drive, I would doubt very seriously that you have lost everything. Everything might still be there, but a virus has hidden it to make you think you've lost everything. Oh, one more way to lose everything is to interrupt a System Recovery before it completes, or interrupt an Fresh Install of Windows before it completes.
A lot of times the System will think you've lost everything because somehow a setting the bios was changed either by you or some virus and it has set the hard drive where it is not detectable. Turn your computer off then watch the screen to see which key you have to hit to get into the BIOS or SETUP or System Setup.
Once you are in the BIOS scroll through it looking for AHCI that will be associated with disk drives or disk controllers. If it is Enabled, Disable it and Boot your machine. If it is Disabled, Enable it and Boot your machine. In other words just change the settings for AHCI.
Try pressing the "Input" button the front of the set. That should allow you to change between the different inputs. The return button usually returns you to the previous channel you were watching - don't think it works for the input though. Also, depending on the model of the set you have, try downloading the PDF user or owners manual - it will tell you how to use the remote.
Will, sounds to me like the IC`s need to be re-soldered, probably got 1-3 joints broke, most times I`ve found that re-soldering them DOES NOT work, but yours "heals" itself so it may be all you need to do, I`d try that first and see if it holds up, if not then get the IC`s replaced and you`ve got a good set, questions? e-mail me back, good luck, BMW Rider
Sometimes resetting the microprocessor circuit is all it takes to fix a set.
A shock, power fluctuation or something in the timing of the control circuit may have caused a momentary glitch in the television and resetting it fixed the set.
Keep an eye on it and if there is another problem with it, reply here and we will try to work it out.
