Question about Projection Televisions

1 Answer

My remote control for my Zenith Television Model Z27X229 will adjust the volume, but it will not change the channel. I have changed batteries, but that didn't help. Do I need a new remote control? If so, which ones will work with this model? Thanks for any help you can offer.

The simplest solution would be to buy a new remote for testing purposes. I own a One-for-All universal remote (model URC-4220), which I bought at Walmart, for less than 10 dollars. It is compatible with Zenith TVs. (You can return it later, if necessary).
If the channel-changing problem is not resolved with your new remote, then you will know for sure there is a defect in your TV, which requires the expertise of a repairman.

The television wont change channels, only power and volume work,


also check remote control if it the rubber contacts are clean. sometimes moisture seeps into remoted. and several times semiconductor rubber contacts loose their properties with friction and pressure.Try to remove batteries of the remote for several minutes and press buttons to discharge any current stred into capacitors. Put the batteries back into remote and try it.Otherwise Try another of the same remote or there may other problems with TV IR sensor. or switching circuit.

Problem with remotes for our zenith e44w46lcd tv


It could be that the main board or the remote reciever is bad on the TV. The best thing to do at this point is to have a technician verify which one is causing the issue. Otheriwise it would be an expensive gamble to replace both boards. Please take a moment to rate my answer. Thanks..

Model ws-55711, remote doesn't work but I don't believe it is the remote control, can only change station up or down manually, cannot adjust volume or others manually...


If you can change channels with remote then TV is OK because it has only one infra red receiver (remote receiver) to catch remote signals.
So TV remote seems bad as it works on channel buttons only.
Here is an easy test for remote, watch remote front through any digital camera or even cellular phone camera will work and press channel button on remote, you will see blinking LED at front of remote while watching it through camera. Now press other buttons of remote and I'm sure that LED wont blink.

When I adjust the volume on the remote control it changes the channel, but not on every occasion.


Hey,
This could be due to the accumulation of dust inside the remote control. You can try to open up the controller and just clean it up.
Thanks

My zenith 52 wlcd-tv will not come on.


We had the same problem and cost 374 dollars and the remote control thing in the TV was replaced in our 52 inch projection tv (about 6 years old). Now it does not turn on with the cable remote. 2 months later now the tv (on its own starts to flip channels and the volumes goes up and down even when the all the remotes do not have batteries in them.
