That is not enough in my opinion it does not accurately describe the pitfall it more indicates to me on a fresh reading that you will lose your work. Its also probably not a factory newborn state its probably a factory newborn state for the boards(circuit boards whatever you wanna call them Im more familiar with PC boards) not for the TV.
I stated that caution as clearly as I could without using language that talks down to anyone, and I stand by it. Further, that warning has been repeated by myself and others over and over again throughout this thread. The consequences of resetting the TV are so cataclysmic for any one set that I can't imagine the insane amount of work required to just get it back to the way it was before the "accident."
Now, along comes someone who ignores the cautions, presses buttons without thinking or whatever, and resets the TV, then comes onto this forum and says, "My Bad, please help!"
There is no way on earth I can conceive of restoring someone's set via this forum; that's why the cautions have been repeated and stated in plain language. Having done my bit, offered lots of help, and advised due caution, I personally will not get involved in coaching someone in this global restoration of their set, sorry. What form do you think this "help" would take? A couple weeks of forum-message or email back-and-forth without my ever seeing the set? Various data charts have been posted, and one can try the default settings first, then make additional changes that have been suggested in this forum. Or call a service tech and pay for them to fix it. Or not. Getting further involved post-accident is not how I want to spend my time contributing (further) to this forum. I will leave it to others.
