Question about Zenith B32A24Z 32" TV

Menu keys not working & Chanel 2 & 3 Only

Hi I have a older Zenith B32 in which the (10) menu keys on the bottom of TV seem stuck. I have held them down for awhile and nothing pops up on screen.

This is a 2nd TV working off 1 cable feed. When I press the channels on the front of the TV I only get channels 2and 3. This also happens when I use the universal remote.

I have purchased a universal remote to get past the problem **** it only gives me 13 channels for viewing as opposed to the 31 channels that I pay for from Comcast. I do not have a cable box. I have 1 cable input line with this 2nd TV experiencing this problem. The other TV picks up all the 31 channels without a cable box.
Can you offer any help on this problem? First time user so I not quite sure how feedback is provided. Thats why I have my email included.

Thank You
James

Greetings Eagle7eye,

It sounds like you might have a problem with the cable settings for your TV. There are a few standards for cable broadcasts and you may need to set it to standard or "STD". But since your menu button doesn't seem to be working this would pose a problem.

I would try and access your settings with the universal remote and look for something like antenna (ANT) and change it from air to cable. Depending on how old your TV is too there may be a small switch near your coaxial connection for the cable setting.

Good Hunting.

Zenith TVBR1322 9 In. Combo universal code


Universal remotes will be missing key functions in these units.

Zenith (and for that matter most brands) do not make these units--about 4 companies make most of them.

Your best bet is to try to locate an original remote--Zenith(LG) or Google the model number "original remote" or even search EBAY.

Zenith TV B27A24Z stuck on chanel 2 Will not change from the TV or the remote.


If the TV is powered off and still does not change from the channel 2 position then it is possible that the processor has crashed or that the memory has gone sticky.
So if you are not able to reset the menu and do a fresh tuning and scan , the processor/memory is faulty.

I have a 26inch Console Zenith Color TV, when I turn it on, I get a full pidture and sound but after 30 seconds, about 6-10 inches of the bottom screen goes black--but the rest is ok???


Hi,

Get the remote control and press the MENU key repeatedly until you see the Video menu at the bottom of the list of options you will see EZ Picture.
Use the up/down arrow keys to select EZ Picture and use the left/right arrow keys to select your preference. Set the preference to Preset not custom.
Press Enter, Quit or Menu to exit. See if resetting the TV's Picture settings resolves the problem.

If you have a bar at the top of the screen as well then it could be in letterbox viewing mode. Again just go into the Video menu and turn it off.

Please let me know how you get on.

Good luck.

Zenith tv picture is larger than screen


Hello
There are Horizontal and Vertical size controls behind the back cover that need to be adjusted using a hand held tool. This adjustment requires a trained tech. High Voltage from the set is dangerous.
However, there maybe some limited controls that may help through the on screen menu.
To get into the setup menu, you need the original Remote that came with the TV.
Hold the Menu Key down until a box appears in the corner of the screen, then press 9,8,7,6 Enter. this takes you to the service menu. Just scroll through the items to find Horiz Size and Vert Size.
Good luck

BEKO TRW325 TV. Frozen on chanel 1.


I turned the TV off. I held in all of the (4) buttons on the front of the TV and turned the TV back on again....this seemed to free up the remote control access and I was able to work the TV normally. The four buttons were the channel and the volume controls.
