Question about Zenith C27V36 27" TV

1 Answer

Zenith 27" HDTV second antenna input not accessible on TV/remote

The flatscreen C27V36 27" TV from Zenith has, among other inputs, 2 antenna/cable inputs, as many TVs do. Problem is, there's no visible way to switch between these two inputs on the front panel below the screen or on the remote control. I would like to have my cable service going in antenna1 and a digital antenna on antenna2, but as it stands I have to manually switch one out for the other on antenna1 (2 doesn't even work when 1 is unplugged). When I do channel scans I first pick up channels on antenna1 and then also on antenna2, but still, there's no way to actually access 2 that I can find.

Has anyone ever had a similar issue with any TV?

    It does have PIP, but that functions fine with just the integrated analog tuner. I do have a converter box though, which I am attempting to put between the antenna2 stem and the antenna. I'm really not even sure this can be done anymore.



    So the PIP apparently only uses one tuner...still haven't figured this out but it's just a matter of time...

    Benimur if you're reading this, I meant to post what I said in the first comment below the original problem above...thanks for the input by the way.

    Hello



    The converter box output is indeed coaxial. Still, when scanning the TV for channels (with the converter box already scanned/tuned), it just picks up ch 3 for the selected antenna input.



    You know I just thought of why my little imagined configuration might not be possible in the first place: The only remote I have that can control PIP (the original remote) can't control the converter box, which would be necessary since I can't scan for converter box channels through the TV as mentioned earlier. Or maybe I'm just going nuts...

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Pls verify if your particular model/versions has a PIP feature. To my understanding, the 2nd Antenna/Cable IN goes to a 2nd tuner that is primarily used for the PIP (picture in picture) mode. This mode would allow you to watch simultaneously 2 different TV channels.

Pls post back. Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

    Hi again,

    Comment or post would be the same. If the output of your converter box is RF (not A/V), then it should work on either inputs.

Can't get the tv to switch from cable to antenna mode using a RadioShack remote or the buttons on tv


It sounds that the front panel controls are locked with your tV. You have to unlock it first, if you want to change its input selections. If you cannot select the inputs by using the remote control [I thing you are using a universal remote control], setup the remote control with an other setup code. All codes to remote control won't work with some functions. You have to search and select, which code give maximum functionality with your TV.

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 SMS1943S made 1995 Need code to switch to dvd status


nleebrooks,

1) check the RCA cable connection from your DVD to TV screen.
make sure that each cable is in the right place (for DVD player yellow cable = video/ red and white cable = audio) (TV screen: yellow cable = video IN /white and red = audio IN

2) from your TV screen locate and check for A/V IN socket. it's either at the back/front or side of the screen.

note: some of TV screen does have 2 A/V inputs

3) Facing the front of your TV screen, locate a button indicating "A/V" or "AV" or a box picture having a forward arrow inside.

note: if you locate the said button and your screen have 2 A/V inputs press the said button until the right input where you connect your dvd cable been set.


cheers,
mark
