Locked out TV channels

We bought a used TV from a hotel that was remodeling & some of the channels are locked out as they used cable. Is there a code or remote that will allow us to reset it so we get all of the channels?

Re: Locked out TV channels

I have a JVC tv. model no. c-20210 25 in. I bought it used and I use a universal remote. There are many channels I can't get. When I go to the menu I go to channel summary and under all the channels there is an x and under lock there is a minus. I never had a tv with this kind of settings before and I need to know how to get a lot more channels. I think I only get about 24 of them now. Please help me out with this problem. thank-you

I got a free tv from a hotel, it has no remote. Can I use a universal remote to add channels to the tv? It only goes to channel 69. Also, can I plug in a dvd player? I can't find anywhere on the tv to plug...

Often these commercial TV's are just vanilla types catering for TV alone. The43 cable channel is possibly the only other alternative that is a money maker for the motel/hotel. They try and prevent people from connecting their own DVD players to their equipment so they are the ones who make the $$.
It is possible to use a Universal remote providing it is capable of being controlled by a remote.
Philips code is 0054 , you can only try!

Unlockin all the channels

In order to get all the channels u have to have the original remote or a universal remote that has a menu button, an enter button, and directional pad (the directional pad cannot control the volume and channels it must be for navigating). push and hold the menu button, the menu will appear then disappear, once it disappears release the button and enter 9876 then press enter. a different menu will appear and it will b three black lines, one at the top of the screen, one in the middle and one at bottom. the middle line has 3 sections the first part is the item number the second part is the description and the last part is the on/off switch using either a 0 or 1. push down on the directional pad until u get to the 00 factory settings 0 and change the 0 to a 1 with the right button on the directional pad. then scroll up to 20 channel lock 0 (i think its 20, it may be like 22 but it is in the twenties for sure) and change the 0 to a 1. then go back down to the 00 factory settings and change the 1 back to 0 then turn the tv off. when u turn the tv back on it will either automatically ask u to auto tune or u will have to go to auto program to program the channels. there are like 80 different menu items, be sure not to mess with any other ones unless u know what ur doing, u could cause ur tv not to function properly or even be able to turn on.

this problem frustrated me greatly and im very happy to help whoever i can with the solution

I cannot reset the channels on my TV. It is the Concierge TV from a hotel. Will I need to buy a Zenith Remote from the store to do the channel programming. It says it is locked

You have a hotel/motel model that cannot be programmed or any of the settings changed without a special Master remote. Sorry, doubt that you can buy one from the store, they are not sold to the public. Contact the hotel where you bought the set and try to get the model number for the remote from them. This is a different number than the model number of your tv.

My tv is locked

They have an internal battery for transport between rooms so as not to lose any pre-programed channels or info while unplugged. So to beat this you will have to unplug it for a few days and let it clear its memory. Mine needed almost a week but when its turned on after the right amount of time it will ask to do a channel search. So make sure you have it hooked up to cable before running that search or you will have to repeat the previous steps. Hope this helps.

Zenith Concierge hotel tv wont work with my xbox 360

I doubt the TV even has a tuner if it is designed for a hotel. It may be a "dumb" receiver, nothing else. Do to channel 2 and then press the down arrow for channel, does it flip to 138 or AV1?
