Recently my Guide Plus+ Gold changed to listing channels I don't have and dropped some basic cable channels. Looking on the internet I've tried the 00000 and 99999 zip code fix to no avail. Anyone out there know of a way to get back what I had? All I have connecting to the TV is the cable and my DVD setup. I have Insight Communications cable if that helps. Some channels I never did have, but, now it's showing a lot of premium channels I don't have and I've lost WGN, TBS, TNT and USA. Thank you.

If you have the guide plus feature go into the setup for it and when it asks if you have a cable box, indicate no, when it asks if you have a Vcr also indicate no. Last if it asks for the zip code enter all 9, This should rule the Guide feature out of service and you will know if it is your problem or not---it created a lot of problems in sets that had it, especially RCA or GE sets.
Guide plus still works even if you don't have the wand hooked up. In the setup section of the guide plus there are several questions that must be answered properly or it won't function as you would like. It maybe labeled as options as well. Thanks
try to fix your remote control, and follow the instruction manual, maybe a broken PCB into your remote control. or at the vedeo section change the transistor for display,base on schematic diagram for that tv
You are right, the Guide Plus is transmitted to your tv over the air. If you have a cable company supplying your programs, your Guide Plus will not receive a signal to set up. You will need to get a two-way splitter. It has two connections on one side and one on the other. The side that has one connection goes to your tv. The side that has two connections will connect to your cable supplier and the other to a rabbit ear or outside antenna. Then the tv has to be off over night to restore your Guide Plus.
I have an RCA televison with Guide Plus Gold and it works great. I am not sure about the Zenith and how it works on it. When I turn on the TV with the remote the guide comes up on screen. I just have to press the guide button on the remote to remove that screen and watch the show. If I don't press anything it will go off after 2 minutes. If you have never set up the guide it will probably show up all the time. You will have to go through and program it so it will know if you have cable, over the air or satelite. I don't have satelite service so I don't know if it will reconize it. I know it works with over the air and cable.
I had the same problem sometimes when my Gold Plus would reset itself and include all the channels but only those Over-The-Air channels. The only way I could change the programming was to completely shut down the power. Not just turning the tv off but completely unplugging it from the wall outlet. When you turn your tv back on you'll be able to choose from Antenna/Cable option. As for Guide,if you don't want to use it, don't set it up, it won't effect anything else on the television.
