Question about Zenith XBR716

Open Question

When I turn on the Zenith XBR716, the Hello message shows up on the DVD-VCR box, but the TV screen remains dark. I should see a blue Zenith screen as it starts. What can I do about this?

ALL cable is digital.
What type of TV do you have? Does it have any scart conections on it? If not connect the Cable box with a scart lead to your VCR select the AV channel on your VCR, connect your VCR to your TV via the RF connection, (if it has not got one, its not a TV, its a monitor). Tune your TV in to the video channel.
You do not need an RF modulator for a home TV setup, whoever told you that is a fool.

After doing all recording, go to DVD menu (use Home button on remote, then choose Disc Manager) and FINALIZE it.

This is basically a repeat of the answer above, I just wanted to emphasize it.

Thanks to this question and answer, they were very helpful to me.

SOURCE: Zenith xbr716 will not read and disc message no

All you can do is clean the lens with a brand name Lens cleaner for DVD. If that doesn't work you might have a serious repair bill to think about.

Hello,
I found a installation and operation manual for you online in which you can download the manual free (if the direct link does not work and you go to the website, you may get one survey question to answer before it lets you download the manual. It is only one question and it does not ask for you to register for the site or provide any personal information). The following link should open the manual directly in pdf format in which you can save it to your computer. If for some reason the link does not open properly, the following link will take you to the website where the manual was found. You can find the information you are needing help with located on page 33 of the manual.
Please ensure that you have Adobe Acrobat Reader installed on your computer. If you do not have this software you can download it for free at the link provided. Make sure that your computer system meets the minimum system requirements and download the appropriate version that your system supports.

I don't know if this will work but try entering four 0 (zeros) first. If it doesn't work enter as many 0 (zeros) that you can and see if that works. Hope this helps :)

Insert DVD, closes, but opens immediately and the screen just says hello. The unit will not shut off unless I unplug it.


If I remember correctly, this unit has a little rubber belt that drives the DVD tray. When it ages, the rubber hardens and loses traction. Thus, the tray does not close properly, the internal sensor recieves no 'closed' message within a specific time, and the tray opens.

DVD will not finalize


I have a Zenith XBR413 that I have a problem with when I copy from VCR tapes to DVD-R discs. After I copy them, I can finalize the disc using the SETUP button on the remote and then choosing the very bottom disc icon at the bottom of the menu screen. It then leads you through the finalization procedure. But the disc will still not play on any DVD player but the XBR413
