Question about Zenith C27A24T 27" TV

1 Answer

Auxiliary button on tv remote (I believe) needs off and I can't get figure out how...

I have an older Zenith TV... I've had it probably 10 years. I've had this problem happen before but I can't remember how I fixed it. The tv remote should be the only remote I use to turn the tv on/off... the cable remote is used of for volume and channels. Now, the red Aux. button lights up on my tv remote when I push most any button, I can't turn my tv on or off with the remote, and the picture flips around so bad I can't watch it, sometimes the bottom half is at the top of the screen. Sound skips out too, quite bad. I believe the last time this happened I some how managed to get that little red Aux button turned off on my actual tv remote and then all was fine. If I remember right. And if I do, I certainly don't remember how I did it. Please help... I'm lonely without my tv. Thank you so much in advace.

Re: Auxiliary button on tv remote (I believe) needs off...

The remote should have TV, VCR, AUX and maybe CABLE buttons at the top, one of which will light up when any button is pressed. Since it is a universal remote, the button at top lights up to let you know what mode it is in. If the AUX button lights up when any button is pressed, it means the remote is currently set to the AUX mode. To set it back to TV, simply press the TV button at the top. This puts the remote back in the TV mode and the TV button should now light up when any button is pressed. If that works and you are using a cable box with that set, then make sure the TV is on channel 3 by pressing 3 ENTER.

I have a universal remote that is able to control some functions on my tv. I am trying to get the tv into auxiliary mode to connect it to my dvd player. How do I get it into auxiliary mode?

Usually the tv will switch automatically to the correct reception mode as soon as it detects an input into the scart socket.

I have and have had a number of tv sets and they all do this, though I do remember many years ago needing to select the AV channel. I believe these days the AV channel is for the other audio/video input sockets.

I suggest you connect your dvd player to the tv, switch on the tv and then press "play" on the dvd.
You should be able to enjoy viewing without further effort.

If you change channel on the tv to check what is on, the dvd reception will be lost. To save the trouble of disconnecting the scart lead and reconnecting I use a manual scart distribution box so simply pressing the button provides the required interruption so dvd viewing can be resumed.

Where do i find INPUT SELECTon zenith tv sy2779dt,trying to hook up Wii and default Wii screen does not come up. manual says to change IS. don't have orig remote, only dish there a way to change IS...

Most tv's have a physical button on the front and it will either be labeled input or source-source select. If thats not the case on your tv, look for a menu button and try to navigate through the tv menus until you find tv input or source select. If that still does not work, you can use your dish 500 remote and if you already use that to turn the tv on and adjust volume, you can probably use it to change the input. To do this, select the tv mode on your dish 500 remote, and then press the source or input button until you get to where you need to be. Once thats done, make sure you return your remote to sat mode or you will not be able to control the dish reciever. Hope this was helpfull to you.

27 inch Zenith TV Vertical too big

If you are using a DTV coverter box, you may have changed the aspect ratio with your remote control. look for a button marked "aspect" or "picture size" use that to change size.
If you have a cable box, you may have a similar button.
Or you may find a picture size adjustment on your TV remote.
If you do not have "aspect" button on your remote try going to set up menu and look for picture size.
Older TVs used to have a vertical size adjustment at the back. look in the manual.
If none of the above, you have a biiger problem with the TV internal parts needing attention

Standard TV-Auto shut down

TV's have a circuit that monitors the high voltage and shuts down the set if it senses something amiss.
Figure on replacing the flyback transformer.
However, my experiance is to not put money into a TV that is over ten years old. TVs stress out their electronic components worse than almost any other electronic product. After 10 years, there are so many parts that are ready to fail that your are probably wasting your money trying to get any more life out of it.
Another option is to wholesale replace the main board from an outfit like PTS Electronics at
Hope ya fix it!

I am stuck on channel 2

some tv's default to channel 2 after being unplugged.since it is a older tv ,the buttons on the remote and the tv maybe worn down.on the tv itself try pushing the buttons down a liitle harder. if you have aux or line in/video inputs,scroll down on the channel button to log into a aux channel for the dvd for the remote try buying a cheap universal remote to see if that works.
good luck
