Guide Plus Gold service on a 2000 Zenith TV

We recently received a 36 inch ZenithTV manufactured in 2000. It has a small window on the screen demonstrating Guide Plus+ Gold service. We don't think this service is offered anymore and we can't figure out how to get the window off the screen. We've been searching the web for days and can't find anything. Can you help us?

    I have a RCA model F25442 which is great, except this stupid GuidePlus+ doohickey. The program automatically pops up, which seems to be some sort of channel lineup program you can scroll through. Which is all well and good, except it doesn't work and it blocks the entire screen. It goes off after five minutes, but is uber annoying. The original remote is broken. Don't ahve teh user manual. The RCA website does not even have this TV listed as one of theirs....

    The only work-around i have been able to come up with is to either just turn it on by hand, not with the remote; or wait about five minutes and it will disappear. I would love to disable this thing, but it is not at all obvious to me how to do it.

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.

Good luck

Menu keeps popping up

If you have the guide plus feature go into the setup for it and when it asks if you have a cable box, indicate no, when it asks if you have a Vcr also indicate no. Last if it asks for the zip code enter all 9, This should rule the Guide feature out of service and you will know if it is your problem or not---it created a lot of problems in sets that had it, especially RCA or GE sets.

Hello. Unplug your set from the wall for two full minutes and then plug it back in and try it again. This will reset it. If that does not do it, call your service provider. J.

Guide plus on my rca p52937 tv

You are right, the Guide Plus is transmitted to your tv over the air. If you have a cable company supplying your programs, your Guide Plus will not receive a signal to set up. You will need to get a two-way splitter. It has two connections on one side and one on the other. The side that has one connection goes to your tv. The side that has two connections will connect to your cable supplier and the other to a rabbit ear or outside antenna. Then the tv has to be off over night to restore your Guide Plus.

Not receiving guide plus + tv listing -no problem until 2 weeks

I called TimeWarner Cable tech support, and the solution is to unplug the power to the box, after 1 min plug back in, let the box reboot, and PRESTO, this time around, the guide should be working.
Note--this is a solution for the problem of online guide that is showing No Data in the boxes, but is bringing up the grid of times/channels/date.
If you can't get the Guide at all, I don't know if this solution works.
Good luck.
