    We have a zenith concierge tv that was donated to a group home. WE have tried programming it so that the cable tv stations can be used but it has a lock on the auto program and I can't figure out how to...

    You have to purchase the master remote from Zenith or a hotel supply company. This is the only way to gain access to programming the concierge. The remote is currently $24.99.

    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.
