I believe you want Background->Automatic, not GreyLevel[1].  Make sure
it's correct at Notebook and Global levels.

In the options inspector, settings that have been tinkered with have a
little square button beside them on the left (at least in my front
end).  You can click on the button to undo your tinkering and restore
them to their normal values.
