Question about Zenith C27A24T 27" TV
I have a zenith H27D35DT hotel tv and need to unlock all the available channels. how do i do it?
I bought a hotel tv (H27D35DT) from habitat for humanity. found manual online, the "master remote" from remotecontrolwarehouse.com I could'nt get the channel to get off of the locked position. I called the 800# in the back of the manual. All he had me do was hold the menu button, wait for it to go off and then try the default code 9876ENTER, We also tried the rest of the codes of 4321Enter,3698Enter,1478Enter After trying all, I tried 9876Enter again and got three black lines on the screen. The one in the middle, (power manage) is the right one. Using the TV/FM button you can navigate in this selectiion. We changed item 20 (channel overide) to "1" We changed item 11 (start channel) to "255" We changed item 14 (channel lock) to "0" Turned the tv off a couple of times throughout this to make it rethink. Had it auto program the cable channels and SUCCESS. The trick is holding the mernu button and getting 9876rnter hit in 2 sec!! Havent been able to get back to it.
you can use the buttons on the front of the tv, but they might be also pre locked

In order to get all the channels u have to have the original remote or a universal remote that has a menu button, an enter button, and directional pad (the directional pad cannot control the volume and channels it must be for navigating). push and hold the menu button, the menu will appear then disappear, once it disappears release the button and enter 9876 then press enter. a different menu will appear and it will b three black lines, one at the top of the screen, one in the middle and one at bottom. the middle line has 3 sections the first part is the item number the second part is the description and the last part is the on/off switch using either a 0 or 1. push down on the directional pad until u get to the 00 factory settings 0 and change the 0 to a 1 with the right button on the directional pad. then scroll up to 20 channel lock 0 (i think its 20, it may be like 22 but it is in the twenties for sure) and change the 0 to a 1. then go back down to the 00 factory settings and change the 1 back to 0 then turn the tv off. when u turn the tv back on it will either automatically ask u to auto tune or u will have to go to auto program to program the channels. there are like 80 different menu items, be sure not to mess with any other ones unless u know what ur doing, u could cause ur tv not to function properly or even be able to turn on.
this problem frustrated me greatly and im very happy to help whoever i can with the solution

I have this model too for my bedroom, Zenith H27D35DT. When I turn the power on it defaults to channel 45 and makes that horrible static noise until I get out of bed and change the channel from the front of the tv the channel 3. Universal remote only affects the volume and of/on function, but wont change channels. Otherwise, the tv works great. How can I get the tv to default to channel 3 when I turn the power on?
