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?

Re: Guide Plus Gold service on a 2000 Zenith TV

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

if you have an idea in electronics, you must check the power supply section at the main board of the tv which the fuse get blown or has burnt parts.

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.

Our 36" Zenith t.v. turns itself off abruptly

These usually have a start up capacitor that goes bad in the power supply.

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.

Guide Plus

Called the cable company..they said they don't block the signal. sooooo..

first..i unplugged the tv from the power source, and unplugged the cable from the wall. left both off for an hour, and reconnected power and cable.

entered the guide set up...changed the zip code from the area where i actually live to the zip code of the cable provider for my area. here on maui, there is only one provider.

used the editor in guide plus to turn on and off the channel line-up according to the published channels listed in my area tv guide.

24 hours later...voila..!! it WORKS..!! good luck..!!

Blurry text on 27-inch Zenith "Sentry 2"

I have had this problem before and restarting the reciever fixed it. Just push the red button under the front panel of your reciever, or unplug the reciever for a minute or so.
