Samsung TX-R2435 TV language/display issue

My Samsung TX-R2435 TV's language has somehow changed to Chinese (or similar). The only languages that are supposed to be available for this TV are English, Spanish, or French. I spent some time on the phone with the tech at Samsung, but we could not resolve the issue because the available menus did not seem to correspond with what is in the user guide. I am also having an issue where the TV is zoomed in, and I cannot determine how to zoom out (I have changed from Zoom mode to Normal mode).

Ideally, I would like to restore the factory default settings, but it seems that the only way to do that is by unplugging the TV (which i have already done for 30 minutes or so, with no success).

Please help.

SOURCE: Picture bigger than screen

This can be caused not enough high voltage going to the picture tube. If the picture seems to get larger and smaller depending on the brightness of the scene on the screen that is probably what it is. IF that is the problem, there isn't much a normal consumer can do.

SOURCE: User Manual OR how to adjust the picture settings...Picture on TV is Cut Off

Normallly, if the picture size button on the remote for the television does not achieve the desired affect, then, a cable box or a satelite box is where the change needs to be made.
For example:
A Motorola Cable box needs to be set up to go to a wide screen or zoom when an analog signal is detected.
Some Dish Network boxes have Size buttons on their remotes and also in their main menu.
It's difficult to determine the repair without knowing the types of the peripherals.
Hope this helps.

Sony KVBM21M10 - menu in Japanese - how do i change it to english

hello , i think i can walk you thru this. i would offer a chat to you , but i don't know how , anyway look closely at this pictures i posted
even tho we can't understand the words , if it is in chinese , turn on the TV , CLICK MENU , hopefully the icons on the left are universal symbols , if not count down to that tool box icon , 5 icons down , or last icon , follow me , highlight that icon ,and click your CONFIRM (enter) button , even tho we can't understand the words , then see my arrow pointing at the word LANGUAGE , it is highlighted ... ok there is only 2 choices on your TV chinese or english , hopefully you see the 2 choices in chinese , whichever 1 is already highlighted , choose ( highlight ) the other using your up and down arrow buttons , press CONFIRM (enter) , and we should see english now .
i hope you can follow these directions and FIX IT , if not , well i know we can .but let us know before giving up .

Samsung TV Won't Turn Off

if this set has a power relay the contacts in the relay are welded closed; unplug set for 10 seconds and plug back in; it will probably come streight on if relay is stuck. replacing relay will fix if this is the case
