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?

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

Can't auto program Zenith TV for cable channels


  1. Did you try to call LG/Zenith customer support and see if they can help you? If not find your nearest LG/Zenith service center (not Best Buy) preferably a small service shop to see if they have a service remote to unlock it

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

if you remote won't work there are 7 or 8 different code choices go through them till it does work

most unversals need tv on and will turn off when code is right

also in menu is audio choices stereo on /off and so on play in there till you get it

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.

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?
