I found the following reference to resetting anything related to the ZN110 remote:
"This remote control works well for all the basic functions on the television: changing channels, adjusting volume, and turning the set on and off. There is not a way to program the TV with the remote control, so if you need to reset the channels after a power outage, for example, you have to do it manually on the TV set itself."
Make sure the power cord is properly plugged into a wall outlet if your TV is not powering on.
Make sure the video and audio cables connecting your TV to external devices are secure if you are experiencing a fuzzy picture or no picture.
Reset the parental password if you forgot the password and
are unable to view certain programs. To do this, click "Menu" on your
remote control and use the arrow keys to select "Parental Controls."
Enter the master password, which is "4357" to reset the password.
Turn off the caption vision option if you are seeing a large
black box on your screen. To do this, click the "Menu" button and select
"Setup." Select "Caption vision" and press the "Plus" button on your
controller to set the option to "Off."
Check the "TV/Video" setting if you're not getting a picture
on your screen. You may have inadvertently selected a video input that
isn't active. Press the "TV/Video" button on your remote to cycle
through video inputs.
Alter the brightness settings if you are experiencing a poor
picture or no picture. To do this, press "Menu" and select "Video."
Increase the brightness settings to see if the picture begins to appear.
Make sure the volume is not muted if you are experiencing a
clear picture but no sound. Press the "Mute" button on the remote
control to turn mute on and off.
Power cycle your Sony
Wega if it's frozen or not responding to your remote control. Unplug
the power cord and wait a few seconds. Plug the power cord back in.
Unplug your tv for at LEAST 4 hours. By doing this you are doing what we call a "master reset", the processor and memory inside are reset. Let me know what has changed so I can further assist you from there.
1) Press the POWER button to turn your TV on. Make sure you are set to Cable/TV reception. If the "replace lamp. Reset Lamp timer" notice appears, press "EXIT" on your remote. 2) Press and hold the VOLUME DOWN BUTTON on the TV set (not the remote, the actual TV set) 3) Continue to press and hold the VOLUME DOWN button and press and hold the PIP (Picture in Picture) or SPLIT/PLAY button on your REMOTE control (your are pressing and holding BOTH of these buttons at the same time now). 4) After 5 or 10 seconds (be patient), the lamp serice menu will appear and say your lamp counter has been rest to '0' (zero). That's it, you are all done.
Now, I continue to have the power shut off after a few minutes of play. I think it is a problem with the cooling fan. Damn it all anyway.
Be sure that your TV is set to channel 3 or 4 if you are using the RF cable or Video 1, etc if using the Audio/Video cable. The Installation Guide should appear. The "improved" picture that you are seeing is simply the analog throughput, not the digital conversion.
I am an electronics technician who just happened have been given the same set as you because it was giving the previous owner the same problem. Since I am confident in my trade, I took the set and diagnosed noise in the remote receivers input to the cpu.
What this means is that a capacitor( or something) wasn't working properly and was either not filtering the noise out or it was introducing noise into the data stream that controls the TV through your remote control.
My fix was to essentially cut out the entire remote control input to the TV. Since I have a directtv box to give me remote control, I don't care if the TV's remote works anyway.
The way I did this was to open up the unit and find the front I/O board were the buttons meet the switches for power,chaennel, volume, etc. On that board there is a plug with white wires and one black wire. The two wires to cut are the one next to the black wire and the one all the way at the other end of the black wire. These two wires are easy to splice back if you do not like the results of this procedure so that there is really no risk of damaging your set. If you wish to verify the proper wires to cut, they are the two wires that come from the IR receiver's side of the board YET DO NOT GO TO THE OTHER SIDE WITH THE BUTTONS! There is one wire that does indeed go to both sides.
This may not be a perfect solution but it is free. I hope that this will help someone out there.
