I don't have the original remote and my universal won't let me do it. Is there a way to manually access the menus? I just got this television from a friend that moved and I have no idea how to change the settings. For some reason the SAP is stuck on and it's driving me crazy during the football games. :)
Make sure, that when any kind sole, gives you this nice Mitsubishi TV for free......that they cough up the remote. If they can't find it, offer to search their house for it. or You end up like me, having a nice TV, that will forever have the "Closed Caption" fxn on until you find that remote.

Re: Access the menu
No Im so sorry my friend, there is no way to turn off any functions such as SAP unless you have an original remote control. This is a problem that has been in exsistance since they came out with sets like this!.. if you wanted to get an original replacement remote, you could easaly get one at http://www.remotes.com. If you know of a friend with a Mitsubiishi TV set, ask to borrow the remote for a short time, just to turn off the unwanted functions or to adjust the set. It will always pay though in the long run to get a remote used from E-bay or from a yard sale. Good Luck.

You can probably use the front panel buttons (STOP PLAY OPEN/CLOSE etc) manually, the only thing you cannot do without the remote is access certain DVD menus, including subtitles/language/special features etc. You can always obtain and use a universal remote for basic menu functions later on if necessary.
To play a DVD movie without the remote, simply load your preferred disc, wait for the player to finish reading its contents, then to skip copyright warnings and/or the 'play movie' menu screen, press STOP, then PLAY, or simply press PLAY button where 'play movie' (or whatever function) is highlighted in the menu. These buttons should be on the front of the main unit. Doing this should encourage the player to detect the appropriate title (the movie) and play it (basic playback operation may not be possible with some DVD releases due to the numerous interactive menus and title pages, such as film trailers).
If basic manual operation is not completely possible with some DVD titles, consider a universal remote for your player if you have either lost your original, or the player was purchased/received without one. Such remotes are relatively inexpensive to purchase, and are available just about everywhere.
Universal remotes are a very limited devices for a replacement of a remote.U get the tv for power on/off,channel up/down and volume up/down,the basic that all u will ever get it out of the universal remote.No button said Menu on the front of the tv for acessing tv Menu,than sorry no combination of buttons,will help u to access the tv Menu.Sorry,but now,u must buy the tv original remote.Try website like Remotes.com to buy an original remote.
On older Televisions such as the one you have listed, you cannot access those menus without a remote control. Just to make sure I skimmed the user manual found here. The only suggestion I have is to get a universal remote with a menu button. Dont forget to check with your other remotes to see if they have universal functionality. Most receivers (surround sound units) have multi-function remotes. Also check your satellite or cable remotes to see if they have universal functions. You can tell, because they will have multiple buttons that say things like "TV, AUX, CABLE, ETC" If so, you can program one of these remotes (or grab one at most electronics stores to program) and have your menu available to you.
Also, check the link to make sure there isnt some functionality hidden away that I didnt see.
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.
The "H" model Zenith TVs are hotel/motel sets designed that
a roomer cannot access the menu feature. Your best bet would
be to purchase a name brand universal remote which has the
menu button feature or order an original Zenith master remote
which would not require programming. Once you have a workable
remote which will allow you to access the on-screen menus you
should be able to program the channels.
Hope this helps,
