Re: I want to know how to use some features on my Zenith...
My guess is SURF might let you scan through the channels like a scan button on a car radio. PIP stands for picture in picture and may require a second device(vcr etc.) with a seperate tuner to use. SWAP allows you to swap pictures when useing PIP. Freeze probably will allow you to freeze the current picture on the screen.
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

I used 0178 to program my universal remote. You can also try 10056, 10178,10864,10885,11756,10056,11758, and 11499. Then you can try by dropping the "1" from the front of these codes.
Most good remotes have a programming function if this does not work, where the remote will "learn" the proper code. The actual button remote codes are as follows: 0 00117 1 00121 2 00119 3 00123 4 00116 5 00120 6 00118 7 00122 8 00245 9 00249 Vol + 00183 Vol - 00187 Mute 00057 Channel + 00181 Channel - 00185 Power 00053 Enter 00164 Last 00247 Menu 00171 Guide 00244 Up 00168 Down 00166 Left 00170 Right 00037 OK 00164 Sleep 00054 PIP 00197 Info 00251 PIP Swap 00198 PIP Mode 00199 Exit 00216 Audio 00059 Input 00090 Wide 00138 TV 00110 AV 00105 Component 00231 HDMI 00174 MTS 00055 CC 00025 Zoom + 00165 Zoom - 00169 Freeze 00200 RGB 00253 PIP Ch + 00196 PIP Ch - 00203 PIP Input 00199 PIP Size 00201
My guess on surf is it might scan channels for you. PIP is short for picture in picture and may require a second device with a seperate tuner. SWAP works with PIP button and switches (or swaps) between the pictures. FREEZE probably "freezes" picture until you push button again.
Since you have the CT9951, I can only assume you have a CF27H50, CF32H50, or CF36H50 TV. You just need to make sure you have your video sources (i.e. VCR/DVD/Cable Box) connected to Video 1 or Video 2.
Once you have your video sources connected if you press the PIP button you should have a small screen that appears in the upper right hand corner, if you press it again it should grow slightly. To change whats in the window you should be able to press the SOURCE button, and if you want to exchange what your watching on the main screen the SWAP button should exchange the images.
If your not use one of the listed TV's and your unit doesn't come with the PIP feature, you can't install a PIP feature.
i am not familiar with this model, but on most sets you will have a button on the remote to activate pip, when active you should be able to adjust channels on the small display with the remote and cycle through inputs. depending on the tv you will either have 2 inputs for your cable/sat/tv feed, or will have 1 with a dual tuner. check the connections in the back for a second cable input, or hook up a dvd/vcr/game console/etc to test the pip. start dvd or tape playing, press pip button to display the mini-screen, then use the tv/vcr or input button to cycle through the modes and see if one pops up. most tvs that have pip will also have a swap button on the remote, it may be labeled with text, or it may just look like one screen overlaying another, press that one to swap between displays.
When you go into the menu to choose the PIP source the PIP comes on to confirm that a valid source has been selected. It is normal for the PIP to close when the menu is exited. To display the PIP normally you will need a remote with a PIP button. Most universal remotes today have PIP functions but if you get a Zenith original replacement then you are guaranteed to enjoy the other PIP features such as size, position, freeze and swap.
I had this problem with a universal remote.I tried everything you can think of.Finally I got it.I hit the setup button on top of tv and the volue down button to start the demo.I dont know exactly how long it ran but after awhile I hit a button and screen was normal...Yeah
