    Press the "Home" button on the TV's remote control. Use the left arrows on your remote control to navigate to the Settings menu, denoted by an icon of a toolbox.

    Use the up and down arrows to navigate through the Settings menu. The Picture option is the third one down and denoted by an icon with a frame and a person inside of it. Select that option by pressing the button with the cross hairs (up and down lines) in the middle of the remote control's directional page.
