Menu on 2 used Zenith's ''Presentation Series won't work

I have recenly aquired 2 Presentation 27" zenith's I already have another one identical to the 2. The first works great the next two have the exact same problem, 1 was manuf. in 99, the other 97. They have preset channels that work fine but I have no access to the menu of either one, either on the front panel or by remote. All I get is menu> and can't do anthing else. Is there a reset, or is something seriously wrong with them. It seems odd that both have the exact same problem, they did both come from the same school so I didn't know if it was a setting they put on there. With the remote or front pannel I can adjust volume and channel up or down, but cannot enter a channel # and go to it. On the identical unit that does function, when I change channels there is a red box on the upper right around the # on the two other units sometimes they try to do this but immediately go to a small yellow # on the left. Other than this issue they have good picture and sound. I sure appriciate your insight on this. Jim

SOURCE: 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 you have a problem with the convergence, believe me, going into the service menu and trying to correct it will only give you large headaches, DO NOT USE THR SERVICE MENU UNLESS YOU ARE A TRAINED TECH!!!! Doing so can result in a complete and total failure of this TV set. I service menu is not for any major changes in any adjustment. It is not the cure all. If your convergence all of a suddenly shifted, it is not a service menu issue. Your problem is the convergence amp IC's. Good Luck

SOURCE: Zenith 44" LCD TV

The yellow spot is due to the BLUE LCD and/or lens assy cracked, reason, to much HEAT! The blue is the darkest color and hold the most heat, so it goes first, always! In some cases it’s only the lens, however most of the time LCD is damage to. Parts are available, however install and alignment is timely. Quick fix is the complete light engine, which for model# E44W46LCD is part# 3141VSN916C, which customer cost is $1,449.27, wholesale for about $1,065.21. Rebuilt, if you can find it around 850.00 to 950.00. However the rebuilt does not always look as good as factory. My advice, TRASH set. This part will fail again in about 3 to 4 years, unless you watch a lot of white video. Remember, on a black or dark picture, all three LCD are blocking 100% of the light, causing extreme heat within the light engine. It’s a bad design.

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.

SOURCE: Problems after convergance IC fix

try not to mix areas in the tv chasing several problems.

  1. Lets get back: i hope the tv was doing fine before to start digging into it ( was it?) Was the tv complete tested before to make sure the buttons were working all and the audio was there. I mean each part of your tv has different solutions:
Think you have an animal with several heads now:
  • the buttons in the panel (some working is good! some others can be replace and there it go all panel works)
  • audio mute (maybe no signal and automatic mute is there. or maybe really audio is damaged. Leave it at the end is another area.
  • Touch focus is the the program controlling convergence digitally talking. If the tv is not yet fix with the amplifiers then the problem still landed in another area not in the digital control.
Finally Start over! Get into de convergence and get your three tubes at least close to convergence (forget auto focus now) three screens together or almost but three rectangules with white noise. No having GUI you mean OSD (i gess) (on screen display) channels appearing when you push that button or audio level line or menu letters (several buttons have to be touch to make sure of there is not OSD.

if the tv has not white noise the screens are without convergence. you are digging in a set with maybe 5 problems the three you told me plus the other posibilities im gessing and i hope you don't have. So slow down with the repair and try step by step. bye now.

Goodmorning, bought a zenith tv didn't get the remote. Wonndering how i can programme it using just the buttons on the tv. How do i get the menus up. it only catches threes channels as of now.


Hello
There are two types Zenith TVs. One type will have "Menu" button on its front panel and other will not. If your Zenith is the first type, you can programme it without a remote control. If it is the second type, you must have a remote control hanset to programme it.
Programming method
First connect the TVs antenna socket at its back with external antenna or cable.

* With the remote control in hand, press the POWER key to
turn on the Presentation TV.
** Press MENU repeatedly until the Setup menu appears.

*** Using the Up/Down arrow on the remote control, highlight
Auto Program on the screen

**** Press the Right or Left arrow to go to the Auto Program
menu.

***** Using the Up/Down arrow, choose either Cable TV or Off-
Air Antenna on the screen.
****** Press the Right or Left arrow to begin the Channel Search.
******* Press ENTER when the channel search is done.

Note: Auto Program finds channels being received by the TV
tuner
Cable will not work unless you subscribe to a cable service
OK.

Zenith B27A11Z 27" TV, can't get into menu, original remote gone


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.

You will need a Zenith remote with a menu button
There should be a "hidden" menu. Before you access it, I want to warn you, do NOT change any values of anything you don't understand what it is or does. You can PERMANENTLY DAMAGE YOUR TV. Also, write down the original values of anything you change before changing it!!!!!
If you still want to proceed(at your own risk), here ya go.
1. Press and hold the menu button until
the menu comes up on screen and then
times out (5 - 10 seconds)
2. Immediately press 9, 8, 7, 6, Enter.
3. The set should now be in the service menu
mode. To access most of the features
selection 00 needs to be toggled from 0 to 1
4. After your adjustments 00 needs to be
toggled from 1 to 0
5.Feature 16 unlocks the auto-program (change to 0)

No remote


heidib, if the front of the set has a menu button try going in and autoprogramming your channels, it seems odd that it won`t go above or below channel 2 which tells me none of the other channels are programmed in. Good luck
