    So I got all full of myself and started screwing with the service menus on my (fairly new) 32" direct-view JVC set. Adjusted the overscan a bit and messed with geometry in order to try to fix a tilting problem.

    Everything seems pretty much fine, except when I watch DVDs. My normally sharp, clean picture now displays heavy laddering on any level of fine detail. The effect is most noticeable when credits (or anything else, really) roll vertically. It almost looks like some scan lines have traded places.

    So now I feel stupid and want to, if nothing else, put things back the way they were. Is there a way to reset to my factory defaults? Is there a good guide online somewhere to completely overhauling my geometry and convergence? Do I need to get a good ISF tech in to clean up my mess?

    I'm retarded...

    If you did not save the settings,
    unplugging the set should restore the old settings.
