Question about Standard (CRT) Televisions
I accidently got into the factory settings menu and moved settings. I now have no color in my picture. Is there something that will give me a guide to restoring these settings.
You can get the installation guide for a Zenith H27H38DT free at the following location. Look on page 36 to go into the VIDEO MENU and set PICTURE PREF to PRESET. That should restore the factory settings, so try that first. If you go into the actual Installer Menu on page 41, proceed with caution.

If you can see the menu screen usually a menu button pressed sequentially will toggle through different aspects of options, I dont know what kind of tv it is and even if i did i wouldnt even know what all to do in a step by step fashion for your specific set, but you can toggle through the menu options by pressing the menu button and when the button is pressed until the menu disappears that is the whole list of menu options. Now find one that has some settings for color, tint, contrast ect... and tune the color back to the right (assuming that from left to right would be the negative/positive scale. Some tvs require the factory remote to make some settings (which sucks) but only on the gay ones. If the menu option is not visible on-screen what-so-ever, as in it cant be seen or legibly read ect then it may be something worse than just bad digital menu settings. If it cant be seen because of no signal (ya know the ssssscsccssssscscss sound with the fuzzed greyish scrambled nothingness) and it makes it bouncy (ive had a tv like that) then change the channel to an input source (Video, AUX, Input, ect, ya know) so it will be just black,... or blue, or something that isnt scrambled, and try then. When your in the menu mode you can scroll with a remote or something and look through all sections of the menu options, and 9 times out of not ten but maybe 15, or 10 i guess but who cares anyways, there will be an option to completely reset the tv set to origional out-of-box factory settings. It will also reset any saved/deleted channels, channel names and ect but will probably set the picture settings back to how you would prefer them. Like i say im no tv man but I hope that info can help you. If it dont then hopefully someone else can (and will) help ya.
