Zenith SL2773W problem

I'm hoping my ailing Zenith SL2773W is similar to the C27A24T. It no longer responds to commands from the remote. As the TV failed, the picture became obscured with a large, dark, rectangle. For a while the dark rectangle could be dispelled by pressing the PIP key on the remote, but the dark rectangle continued to return. The TV now starts normally with the front panel controls, but after a half-minute or so the dark rectangle appears.

The dark rectangle appears because you have the closed captions on and set to TEXT. Closed captions set to CC1 puts the words on the screen and TEXT puts a black box on the screen. Go into the menu, navigate to the page with closed captions and set your captions to OFF.

27 inch Zenith TV Vertical too big

If you are using a DTV coverter box, you may have changed the aspect ratio with your remote control. look for a button marked "aspect" or "picture size" use that to change size.
If you have a cable box, you may have a similar button.
Or you may find a picture size adjustment on your TV remote.
If you do not have "aspect" button on your remote try going to set up menu and look for picture size.
Older TVs used to have a vertical size adjustment at the back. look in the manual.
If none of the above, you have a biiger problem with the TV internal parts needing attention

Zenith sms1324s doesn't exist on universal remote codes pages

You can buy a suggested substitute (original no longer available) here:

I wish someone would bring a suit against any of these manufacturers using the term 'universal.' 
At best, they are 'multibrand' and, with the proliferation of 'brands,' there never will be one that can rightfully claim to be 'universal.'

My tv will not turn on.

First of all, forget about the remote and see if the TV functions normally using the buttons on the front of the set itself. If the TV will not power on with the power button on the set itself, then something is wrong inside the TV. If the set works fine from the front buttons but no longer responds to that remote, then the remote has either gone bad or was accidently set to a different brand. In this case, look for the original book that came with the remote (or TV if it is the original remote) and follow the instructions for setting the remote back to Zenith. Try that and post your results here.
