I cannot access the menu on my Zenith SY1931SG via the remote or front panel buttons.
All other buttons on the remote work (mute, volume, channel, flshbk) and the volume, channel and power buttons on the TV work.

Re: Cannot access menu
The tv has lost the menu,in order for the menu to come up in the screen it needs horizontal and vertical sync,the syncs come from the secondary of the flyback and from the vertical Ic.Is rare but We have seen it happen,sometimes you also have an Ic called character generator and it could be bad.You will need the assitance of a servicer for this problem because there are voltages to measure and signal to trace.

If your TV has a "Menu" button on its front panel, you can press it, enter its menu window, select auto tune function, and press Vol+ button. If it has no Menu button on its front panel, you must ahve its remote control to select this function.
they is no reset botton .
to reset -switch off your tv from mains plug leave it off for 5mins and switch the tv on.
You may need to purchase a programming remote from LG. The user remote that comes with the TV doesn't have the MENU button. The manual also listed a programming/cloning box by Zenith, I have a cloner box for RCA and it has a reset button on it. I had to download the manual for the same TV from http://shop.retrevo.com/ they didn't have a listing for the LG but the Zenith has the same model # and is the same TV as far as I can tell. You may be able to access the menu using the menu button on the front of the TV . Hope this helps.
Most universal or multi-brand remotes will control a TV's basic functions, but almost none will support advanced functions like menus. If the TV doesn't have a front panel menu button, the best solution is to buy a universal remote of the same brand as the TV. If you get a Zenith universal remote, it should have a menu button that will work with the TV.
Be sure that your TV is set to channel 3 or 4 if you are using the RF cable or Video 1, etc if using the Audio/Video cable. The Installation Guide should appear. The "improved" picture that you are seeing is simply the analog throughput, not the digital conversion.
If you have a remote that can access menu and your remote has number buttons and an enter key, you can follow this instructions to go to installer menu. Note that the installer menu is slightly different for each model, eg. some options are not available.
I was able to go to installer menu using two universal remotes. The remotes that I used were Dish Network 3.0IR and RCA RCU300WBL. Both remotes programmed for Zenith H2531DT TV. The reason why I had to use two remotes is that Dish Network remote was only able to access menu. It did not have ENTER key but RCA remote had ENTER key but I wasn't able to go to menu with that.
To go to installer menu (different from regular menu):
- Hold MENU for 8 seconds. - Press 9, 8, 7, 6 and ENTER in the sequence. You should be in the installer menu now. There should be a line that looks something like this: 03 VERT POS 13
Use SELECT button to scroll through each option, and ADJ button to adjust the values for each option. For example, to enable the front panel buttons on your tv, set KEY DEFEAT to 0. Other options that you might want to check:
CHAN LOCK which locks your TV to a single channel and wont let you change (set 0 to turn off) START CH/VOL will set your tv to a specified channel when you turn on tv. (set 255 to disable)
You will have to look in the menu for some of the options because they are different for different TV series. A good place to find manual is on www.zenith.com or http://safemanuals.com/
I work in an old hotel and it took me few hours to figure out how to disable start channel lock. It drove me nuts. I hope someone finds this useful.
