screen corruption

Question:  when I cat a binary file to the screen, all the characters 
get replaced with graphical symbols.

Sometimes, 'reset' will fix this, and sometimes it won't.

Is there some utility that can restore such a corrutped screen
in every case?

What happens is that I slowly lose virtual terminals due to this
process until I need to reboot to have enough.
