I recently acquired an older Zenith tv. I would like to use it with my satelite cable, but I will have to be able to use the Dishnetwork's romote with it. Is this possible? Serial # 722-15170744
Model # D0920A [Manufactured in April,1987]

Re: Is my tv remote control capable?
I would suggest calling Dish Network they should know whether the remote will support the TV. But in actually, None of the so called universal remotes I have seen, even the remote for the Satellite receiver, support all of the features on a device other than volume and power on and off, so you have to have the remotes for each of the devices you have in relation to your entertainment center handy, such as DVD Player, a sound system, the television itself. Hope this helps.

The device is expected to have been acquired with a compartible remote control. However, a universal remote control is capable of powering the new TV only acquirable separatly at retail.

There is a 99% chance that your TV does have remote control capability but it could be broken. You might try using the codes from another brand of TV such as RCA, Magnavox, Funai to see if those codes work, otherwise it might be time for a new TV.
Fault at its main digital board. Short circuited component/s at it. Contact any service technician; or the authorized service center. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here.

Your problem is common because there are so many products on the market these days.
That said, you can purchase one truly universal remote that will absolutely control all of your devices. Go to any TV/electronics store, even a radio shack and take a look at these. Don't be surprised by their price tags, as they are usually in the $100. range.
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.
