Re: stuck menu!!!

I would suggest to hold down the * key on the remote.  If the unit shows a number on the front of the unit then push the number that shows up on the front of the unit.  The remote for the D-R4 supports up to 3 units.  The * key + the number displayed on the front of the unit lets you switch the remote from one unit to another.  IF it doesn't show any number on the front of the unit then your remote and unit are set properly.

How do i turn the safety lock feature OFF that my son somehow managed to turn on?

Thanks for the information.

If there is a key symbol illuminated on the display, press and hold the "LOCK" button on the Zenith remote. This is located near the bottom of the remote, near the REC/ITR button.

For the parental lock feature, press the SETUP button on the remote then use the UP/DOWN arrow keys to highlight RATING and press the RIGHT arrow once. This will open the rating menu. Press the DOWN arrow repeatedly until UNLOCK is highlighted then press ENTER. Finally, press SETUP again to close the menu.

You may be asked to enter a password to change the rating setting. If you know the password (4 numbers), enter it when prompted. If you don't know or you've forgotten the password, close the menu using the SETUP key, then press SETUP again to re-open the menu.

Dont select anything here, simply press 2 1 0 4 9 9 using the number keys on the remote and then press ENTER. This will clear any password that has been set. You will then be asked to set a new password the next time you try to access the RATING section of the menu.

Please try the above. If you get stuck at any point, post another message here and I'll get back to you immediately.

I cannot play burned dvd's from this system in other dvd players becahse I cannot finalize the dvd. How do I finalize?

The recording may have used all the media on the disk because you let it run until it was full.
Now, there is no room to finalize the disk.

Play this back on the machine where it was recorded while recording it to another DVD recorder..
This time, BE THERE to stop the recording.
Set the recorder to a speed that leaves at least 10 minutes extra space for finalization.

Can i record from tv to dvd

make sure the cables are connected correctly, the manual will show that.
If the mwr20v6 has a tuner you must have the channel on the dvd set to the program, if it has no tuner, you must have your tv set to the correct channel.

Tuner won't go above Channel # 99?

Most cable boxes that go past 99 are digital channels and require the cable box to tune them in. You can always set the cable box to the station you want and hookup the rca output to your DR4 rca input and record from that. Their is no other work around for this because the DR4 has an analog tuner inside of it and your cable box is a digital turner.
