wg-20 image tone won't set to default (bright) and wash out photos

My photos look washed out and I wanted to set the Image Tone to Bright to see the difference as now the Image Tone is set to natural.
On Page 115 of the Manuel I follow the instructions, but step 3 is to "press the 4-way controller" for a pull down menu to appear.
The controller won't let me click to the right, or when I do nothing happens.

I then check the default settings on page 265 and there is says the default setting for Image Tone is Bright. I then went to page 239 and was able to do a
factory reset, and it seemed to work. But then when I check the setting for Image Tone, it is again at Natural.

How can I get the Image Tone set at Bright, to see if this helps with the picture being washed out.

Thanks for your help.

What shooting mode are you in? If you want to change the image tone yourself you should probably be in P mode.
