Your question could be a bit clearer... I assume by "CRT shell" you mean a 
text mode bash prompt.  You can get to these by Ctrl-Alt-F1 ... F6.  
Graphical mode by default lives on Ctrl-Alt-F7.

If you messed up your terminal mode, perhaps because you Ctrl-C'd out of a 
program that was hiding characters for a password or somesuch, a handy 
command to know is

reset

this will clear your terminal screen and reset it back to normality.  You can 
type it blind if there is no echo.
