    resume normal?

    If something goes out of order/ is simply not working(the screen suddenly goes blank on TV), and is working normally later on (e.g. we can watch the movie again on the TV), should we say

    - it resumes normal.
    or
    - it resumes to normal.

    I know there may be other ways of saying it but I'd really like to know which of the above sounds right?

    thanks

    Neither of them sounds right.
