You didn't mentioned the brand and model of your remote control, anyway you may try the code below.
ZENITH Codes: 000/ 001/ 004/ 023/ 038/ 058/ 059/ 064/ 121/ 135/ 136/
Let me know the brand and model of the remote if the codes above does not compatible with the unit.
Hope I helped you.
Have a nice day!
Thanks for using Fixya.
Radio Shack, Wal-Mart, etc. all carry a selection of antennas that will work with your converter box. Depending on the strength of DTV signals in your area, you may need an amplified antenna (has a built-in booster) to get good reception. Analog broadcasts were watchable with a weak signal (the picture would just be fuzzy), but the digital system needs a good strong signal. The sales people may be able to suggest an antenna based on what other customers have purchased and their reports of how well they do. Outdoor antennas are also available if needed.
I have the same problem.... On the back of the tv, there are three coax
spots. One is for Cable, one is antenna decoder, and another is a loop.
I have had zero luck getting any of those to receive the signal.
Instead i have ran my digital signal to a vcr, then ran rca cables from
it to my tv. I then put my tv in vcr mode, or aux depending on where
you hooked it up. You can watch tv through your vcr this way.
I just checked the owners manual online. Looks like this model only has an NTSC analog tuner. No ATSC digital tuner built in.
If you use cable or satellite TV services, the digital converters won't help you. The coupon-eligible ones are strictly for use with a traditional antenna. If this is your situation, ignore the remainder of this message.
If you use a regular TV antenna with this TV, then, yes, you will need a converter box. FYI, the Insignia model at Best Buy and the Zenith at Circuit City, and elsewhere (radio shack) have gotten good reviews from early purchasers. More converter box models will be available in a few months time.
If your current reception with your antenna is poor (snowy), you may have problems receiving the new DTV signals. If not, you should be pleasantly surprised with the quality of the DTV signals - and the extra "virtual" channels. Try the converter box using the RCA video and audio inputs, for a slightly better picture than with the coaxial cable inputs.
Check the back of the tv if there are at least two coaxial inputs on the back. They are the type of inputs for a standard cable that screws into the back of the tv and would look like they have threads on them. If your tv only has one coaxial input it probably is not DTV ready. Alternativley, use a search engine site (google, ask, yahoo etc.) type in the make and model number of the tv. Some websites go into detail as to how many inputs a tv has as well as what resolutions they support, dtv compatible, hd compatible etc.
here is the link for the user manuals from zenith - they dont have one for your exact model, but if you type in C13A03D you will get a manual - page 34 details all the v-chip settings and should be nearly identical to your model at least;
Hope this helps - please post again if not :)
