I have gone to settings > general > guides/rulers and made sure the color was blue.

BUT I hit some odd key combo in my document and now ALL guides are always black,but they remain blue in settings. How can I reset? Tried to reset the workspace, that didn't do it. Reset guides, removed guides, closed program, opened, rebooted, updated. Nothing is allowing me to change the colors of the guides in my document. All helps take me to settings, yet settings are correct.

 

What can I do to switch them back?

Try resetting the prefernces:

To manually restore preferences to default:

To restore preferences quickly using a keyboard shortcut:

  • Press and hold Alt+Control+Shift (Windows) or Option+Command+Shift (Mac OS) as you start Photoshop. You are prompted to delete the current settings. The new preferences files are created the next time you start Photoshop.

Note: Using the keyboard shortcut, preference files for custom shortcuts, workspaces, and color settings will also be reset to default.

Same issue. And proposing resetting all settings as a solution isnt really helping. We do set tones of settings on purpose, and re-setting it all over again is waste of time (money). We should try to find a reason why the guides are black, even tho in settings they are default cyan.
