I dropped the tv face down...everything works, but the color is all green and purple. I tried adjusting it on the menu, but doesn't look anything but awful. Have i busted something? Maybe I'm not adjusting color on menu correctly? Is there something that reverts it to factory setting for picture color and quality?

Re: Toshiba MW27FPX dropped it!
See if you can borrow a TV de-magnetizer (degauss) from a tv shop...if that doesn't purify the color, then the shadow mask inside the picture tube is bad = no repair unless CRT is replaced
and that would cost more than a new TV ! ...................T.

Projection TV sets have two very common problems. One is convergence ( 3D/Warped video) the other is CRT fluid ( Dull Video). Here are more details and solutions for both. Repair kits with instructions are also avail from www.TvRepairKits.com
Common Problem #1) Convergence has gone out
Projection TV sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the video to look normal. When its out of alignment the video will look 3D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the TV menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired.
This is a very common failure on these projection sets and a fairly simple DIY fix. All projection sets including Samsung, RCA, Sony, Philip Magnavox, Panasonic, Pioneer, Akai, GE, JVC, Toshiba, and others at some point will have the same problem.
Common Symptoms include....
Screen looks 3D
Colors don't line up
One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
Screen is bowed or warped.
TV shuts off after powering on. Power light will blink. TV may also make a chirping noise.
Projection TV tubes have a liquid coolant that is used to keep them from overheating. After many years the coolant in the blue and green tubes will become cloudy and cause the screen to look dull, red/orange, etc. You may even see halos around images.
Try website like Remotes.com to buy the original remote it ur best bet.Tries the manual control on the tv.Push the Menu button use the channel + - and the volume + - on the manual buttons to adjust colors,contrast,brightness.
THIS IS JUST A SUGGESTION .... PLEASE I HAVE A TOSHIBA AND I AM NOT AN EXPERT ON TV REMOTES!!!
MY ORIGINAL REMOTE HAS A SWITCH ON THE TOP LEFT HAND SIDE OF THE REMOTE. IT HAS TV, CABLE,VCR, AND AUX. MAKE SURE YOURS IS ON "TV".(IF OURS ARE SIMULAR)
IN THE MIDDLE OF MY REMOTE THERE IS A LARGE ROUND BUTTON WITH "ENTER" ON IT. PRESS THAT ONCE AND ALL THE MODES SHOULD APPEAR ON THE SCREEN. USING THE 4 ARROWS AROUND THE "ENTER" BUTTON YOU CAN CURSOR TO THE OPTIONS FROM MODE TO MODE. AND USE THE "ENTER" OR "EXIT" TO SET IT IN THE ADJUSTMENT YOU WANT.
MY TOSHIBA IS A PIP "PICTURE IN PICTURE MODEL".
MY CABLE REMOTE COMMANDER DOES NOTHING BUT WORK THE TV'S ON-OFF, CHANNEL, AND VOLUME. UNIVERSALS WILL NOT OPERATE THE REST OF TOSHIBAS OPTIONS ... THAT I HAVE FOUND ANYWAY.
LIKE I SAID ... I HAVE A TOSHIBA AND HOPE YOUR TOSHIBA REMOTE IS SET UP THE SAME AS MINE OR SIMULAR TO HELP YOU OUT.
I WISH YOU LUCK. JUST TRYING TO HELP.
