Question Magnavox TV

Hello, hope someone can help with this.

I have a Magnavox TV, model unknown but it's a CRT type and while trying to turn it off last night, I must have hit a wrong button using the cable system's new remote and now I have some numbers and letters on the bottom of the screen that I can't get to go away. It also won't turn off without unplugging it. Unplugging it don't reset anything either. When I plug it back in, it is still on and has the numbers/letters. I can change those with the remote which affects the picture so they must be settings of some sort.

3 A 10 1F <---is what it says

Any ideas how to get those to clear off?

Thanks
Mick

Thanks for the reply Craftsman. I'm thinking it's mid 90's? maybe late. I do have a model number now it's 27Y100-00AA and the size is 26" diagonally.

I've figured out the 3 in that is the channel...but it don't matter, I just need to get it all off my screen. I think it's blocking the remote from working right..like it's in a program or settings mode that won't clear. I don't have the original remote for the set. Can't figure out how it got on the screen nor how to get it off.

How about some way to reset everything back to default?? Is there a way to do that? Maybe that would clear the numbers/letters off??

I can't watch the thing because my eyes are being constantly drawn to those.

Posted a picture of the problem. If you go to The Mini Worlds of Michael and scroll to the bottom of the top blog entry you can see a pic of the TV and the problem.

Finally got it to clear. Thank you to anyone who was thinking on the problem.

In case anyone else gets a similar problem, I held the on/off button on the TV pressed while unplugging and plugging it back in several times and the last time, it didn't come back on when I plugged it back in. I hit the button again and it came on..without the digits on the screen. The remote started working again also. The screen is a lot sharper also so it must have reset something or I did while changing those numbers and letters while trying to get them off the screen.
