How to factory Reset my SA 8300HD

I'm running a Panasonic Extended Def plasma and screwed up my outputs by turning off the 1080i setting and leaving only a 720p output possibility. That doesn't fly on my ED device and i get garbage. Now i can't see the screen to reset to 1080i!! Is there a series of buttons that will reset to the firmware settings and let me start over?

An ED TV is a 480p set, you should set your cable box that. John

Thanks, i remembered that i had a small HD set at my treadmill and used it to get an image and reset the output to a scan type and rate that my large screen could render.
