We just dug out an old TV and do not have the remote or owners manual for this model. I cannot figure out how to access the menu/setup in order to have it scan through the channels and program them in. It only has the power/volume/channel buttons and the buttons for use of the VCR. How do I access the setup to have it program all the cable channels in?

I've tried looking for an owner's manual for you, but to no avail. If you are looking for a replacement remote you can follow this link to http://ezremotefinder.com which will get you a list of remotes for sale that are compatible with the JVC AV-36890 TV. Here is a link to the search results for the JVC AV-36890 replacement remote:
If you have a remote that can access menu and your remote has number buttons and an enter key, you can follow this instructions to go to installer menu. Note that the installer menu is slightly different for each model, eg. some options are not available.
I was able to go to installer menu using two universal remotes. The remotes that I used were Dish Network 3.0IR and RCA RCU300WBL. Both remotes programmed for Zenith H2531DT TV. The reason why I had to use two remotes is that Dish Network remote was only able to access menu. It did not have ENTER key but RCA remote had ENTER key but I wasn't able to go to menu with that.
To go to installer menu (different from regular menu):
- Hold MENU for 8 seconds. - Press 9, 8, 7, 6 and ENTER in the sequence. You should be in the installer menu now. There should be a line that looks something like this: 03 VERT POS 13
Use SELECT button to scroll through each option, and ADJ button to adjust the values for each option. For example, to enable the front panel buttons on your tv, set KEY DEFEAT to 0. Other options that you might want to check:
CHAN LOCK which locks your TV to a single channel and wont let you change (set 0 to turn off) START CH/VOL will set your tv to a specified channel when you turn on tv. (set 255 to disable)
You will have to look in the menu for some of the options because they are different for different TV series. A good place to find manual is on www.zenith.com or http://safemanuals.com/
I work in an old hotel and it took me few hours to figure out how to disable start channel lock. It drove me nuts. I hope someone finds this useful.
