Question about Zenith SY2751Y TV

1 Answer

Can't access channels 3 and 4

I have a 1996 zenith SY2751Y TV, no remote, no instruction manual. Tennessee USA. On the menu where you add and delete channels it will not bring up channels 3 and 4. It skips over them. I need them in order to use the remote from my satellite dish. Any help appreciated.

    I have a similar problem. We don't have remote/manual but like an idiot I let it "auto scan" for channels before hooking anything up. Now I can only add/remove channel 2 manually (can't access the other channels to add/remove without a remote). I tried hooking up a DVD player to it and pressing play but scanning still doesn't pick up the channel the DVD is on.

    Since we got the TV with all the channels accessible, I assume there might be a way to reset the channels, but am clueless how.

    I have the same issue and unfortunately the solution listed doesn't exist in my case. I hit setup button on the menu and do not have a menu for channels at all - it goes straight to time, text, etc. I cannot figure out where I need to go to get this tv to reset and look for channels again.

Open main menu and select manual program. In this option check skip on/off option is there. Otherwise select autoprogram the channels are automatically stored, after completing autoprogram TV displays program edit option. In that you can choose your needs.

I hooked my tv up to cable, but cannot get cable channels to work... you can get them by putting numbers in remote, but will not show up when you scan up/down button on remote. Don't haveoriginal remote,...

Is there a Menu button on the remote that activates the Menu function on the TV? If there is, launch the Menu and look for an option titled Channel Memory, or Channel Scan, Add to Memory, etc. This functon will scan the channels and add active channels to memory.

Problem programming Zenith Digital TV Converter DTT901 remote.

Be sure that your TV is set to channel 3 or 4 if you are using the RF cable or Video 1, etc if using the Audio/Video cable.  The Installation  Guide should appear.  The "improved" picture that you are seeing is simply the analog throughput, not the digital conversion.

Zenith TV not programmed for home purpose

If you have a remote that can access menu and your remote has number buttons and an enter key, you can follow this instructions to go to installer menu. Note that the installer menu is slightly different for each model, eg. some options are not available.

I was able to go to installer menu using two universal remotes. The remotes that I used were Dish Network 3.0IR and RCA RCU300WBL. Both remotes programmed for Zenith H2531DT TV. The reason why I had to use two remotes is that Dish Network remote was only able to access menu. It did not have ENTER key but RCA remote had ENTER key but I wasn't able to go to menu with that.

To go to installer menu (different from regular menu):

- Hold MENU for 8 seconds.
- Press 9, 8, 7, 6 and ENTER in the sequence.
You should be in the installer menu now. There should be a line that looks something like this:
03 VERT POS 13

Use SELECT button to scroll through each option, and ADJ button to adjust the values for each option. For example, to enable the front panel buttons on your tv, set KEY DEFEAT to 0. Other options that you might want to check:

CHAN LOCK which locks your TV to a single channel and wont let you change (set 0 to turn off)
START CH/VOL will set your tv to a specified channel when you turn on tv. (set 255 to disable)

You will have to look in the menu for some of the options because they are different for different TV series. A good place to find manual is on or

I work in an old hotel and it took me few hours to figure out how to disable start channel lock. It drove me nuts. I hope someone finds this useful.

The "H" model Zenith TVs are hotel/motel sets designed that
a roomer cannot access the menu feature. Your best bet would
be to purchase a name brand universal remote which has the
menu button feature or order an original Zenith master remote
which would not require programming. Once you have a workable
remote which will allow you to access the on-screen menus you
should be able to program the channels.
Hope this helps,

I feel your frustration! Most all tv's share similar features,but
access varies with mfr & age.Some sets have an individual channel add and erase system as well as an auto-program
method.Others offer only one way to memorize.In your case,
analyze how to erase channels and thus learn to memorize!
If you need more help,please let me know in exact detail the steps you are taking......T.
