TV Reset Problem

My question is "Does the TV set have a RESET button?" If so, "How do I RESET it?"

I have a Curtis Mathes Tronic Color TV, Model CM19001, and Date October 1999. I purchased it new from K-Mart, and used it a few months, so it setting unplugged for years. About 6 months ago, I began using it again. It has a perfect picture. I cannot locate the TV Manual.

I must have accidentally press the wrong button when I (thought that I) turned it off this afternoon. When I got back home, the screen says plug in the AV Jack. I only have Cable TV plugged into the set, nothing else.

I tried to use the remote control, but the TV will not respond. I have tried fixing the problem manually from the TV set. It responds from the TV set, but I cannot get to the Setting menu.

My question is "Does the TV set have a RESET button?" If so, "How do I RESET it?"

Alternatively, do you have any other suggestions for correcting the situation?

Thank you for any help you can provide in this, and I look forward to hearing from you.

I am trying to adjust the brightness on this circa 1980 floor model solid state tv

The contrast setting controls the relation between the light and black areas of the screen. If the light areas are too bright and are losing details, press the CVOL button; if the picture is gray and lacks contrast, press the VOLB button

The brightness setting controls the overall amount of light in the picture. If the picture is too bright, press the CVOL button; if the picture is too dark, press the VOL B button

The color setting controls the intensity of color.

How do I change a Curtis Mathes Analogue to Digital

You can't. The only way to change it would be to go and buy a new TV. Unless you're asking about hook a game console to it, that's a different procedure. The analog refers to the internal workings of the TV its self.

Screeen color is green

This fault is called one color predominant screen. The cause might be to its video output card itself. There will be some loose solder terminals around the Green video output transistor. Check this card for any loose solder terminals. Just re-solder all the suspected solder terminals by applying a little more solder, without making any solder bridge short in between adjacent solder terminals. This card can be located at the neck of the picture tube [a rectangular board], will be directly plugged on to the back of the picture tube.

Curtis Mathes TV Remote Control Codes for Programming the remote to the TV

I own a One-for-All universal remote, and my booklet says the setup code for a Curtis Mathes TV (without a built-in DVD or VCR) is one of the following numbers: 0030, 0047, 0054, 0060, 0093, 0145, 0154, 0166, 0451, 0702. I can not guarantee these numbers will work with your remote, but it is worth a try.
