The Source menu has changed to main, pip, and cable from cable, video1, and video2. Also when the source is cable, the vcr input comes up in the picture-in-picture window. How do I return to the old 3 choices and not have pip on the scene?

Refer to the manual (free download here). Generally, a blue screen indicates a very low or non-existent signal. This can happen when the antenna is unable to gather enough of a signal from a particular broadcaster, or if an A/V input is selected, but the A/V device is not on or providing a signal. Since you are not seeing channel information when tuning, I suspect that the television is set to display an A/V input instead of the internal tuner.

With a working remote, locate the TV/AV button on the lower left (manual page 3 - item 8). When this button is pressed, you can choose to display signals on the ANT, VIDEO1, VIDEO2 or COMPONENT jacks. The ANT selection chooses the input on the RF jack such as an antenna or cable TV (with or without converter box). If using a cable box, the TV tuner should be set to Ch3 or Ch4 as determined by your cable box. Otherwise, select the VIDEO1, VIDEO2 or COMPONENT input that has the source signals you wish to watch from a cable box, DVD player, etc. that is connected to the rear input jacks. Page 7 of the manual details the connection and remote operation.

I hope this helps!

Tv wont stop scanning between tv, video1, video2,video3

Possible there is a sync issue as the return pulses do not come back to lock the scanned channels. This can be an issue which can vary from a simple loose connection to a fault iin the signal processor. This would need the help of a serious probe with a signal tracking using a scope and assisted equipments. Take consensus as this can be tricky before you tamper the board.

I have a sony trinitron XBR and the PIP won't turn off. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Please make sure that one input is connected to the UHF/VHF port of the TV and other is connected to composite or component ports. If you have connected likewise, please perform the steps below:
  1. Ensure the video source is turned on.
  2. Ensure the video source is connected to an available VIDEO input jack on the back of the television. IMPORTANT: The VIDEO 5 input cannot be used to view a program in the PIP window.
  3. On the television remote control, press the TV FUNCTION button.
  4. On the television remote control, in the PIP section, press the TV/VIDEO button to select the appropriate video input for the PIP window.
  5. If the issue is not resolved, connect the Audio/Video (A/V) cable from the video source to a different VIDEO input jack on the television.
  6. On the television remote control, in the PIP section, press the TV/VIDEO button to select the appropriate video input for the PIP window.
  7. If the issue is not resolved, replace the A/V cable.

Need help with PIP

When you go into the menu to choose the PIP source the PIP comes on to confirm that a valid source has been selected. It is normal for the PIP to close when the menu is exited. To display the PIP normally you will need a remote with a PIP button. Most universal remotes today have PIP functions but if you get a Zenith original replacement then you are guaranteed to enjoy the other PIP features such as size, position, freeze and swap.
