    Kinda depends what kind of TV you actually have.

    Just saying it is a "TV" is kinda vague.

    If you do anything via the service menu, write all values down before changing anything.

    Ethan, what Michael TLV (considered a setting guru by most around the net) is asking is more specific; ie, what brand and model televsion.

    I'm just repeating Lew's advice: Write down all of the settings before changing any of them! It's easy to start pressing buttons and then find out that you've been changing some setting or another accidentally, and you need to know what the original setting was.
    It's also easy to, oh, turn off all of the CRTs so that you can't see anything...which makes it damn hard to change the setting back.
    Proceed with caution.
    That said, you can indeed tweak the picture and improve it quite a bit once you learn how to get into the service menu. Sorry I can't tell you how to do that with your set, but someone will be able to.
