Question about Zenith Z36H96R 36" TV

1 Answer

Zenith TV won't turn on

My zenith tv model z36h96r won't come on using the remote or the direct switch on the set. When the button is pressed the tv makes a sound like the speakers are being activated but almost immediately after the speakers pop there's another click sound that sounds like the tv is being turned off. There's no picture or sound coming from the set. Do you have any idea what is wrong? Also the tv was manufactured in 11/1997 and in good physical condition but is the problem going to cost more than the tv is worth? Thanks

Not really a solution but i have the problem with mine< opened it up and it's part number 38-102 or ex3401 which appears to be a open fuse by the AC in on the board. When I bridged the open, melted gap it turned on, smoked, and melted again with a spark so be that as it may there's got to be something going on here that can't be too hard to fix but the repair man will make more on the sale of a new tv than fixing the old.

I am trying to get a remote code for my slyvania 6719


I also can't find the remote for my Sylvania
TV/VCR/DVD combo...
Model number 6719DF. I don't normally use this tv
(it's an extra spare that I plug into our generator when
the power goes out... since our regular family TV is
quite big and set into the wall making it difficult to
track cords around, I drag this crappy Sylvania down
from our dining room to our family room) I did
happen to find an old Zenith universal remote that
does work with it in some ways (See directions
below). I can turn the TV on and off, set the channels,
language, clock.. etc through the Input select button
on the universal remote but can't set to "Game Mode"
after using connections with video/audio input cords
plugged into the front panel of the TV. So
Playstations, extra dvd players or vcr's, etc won't
work.
Switching from the VCR to DVD and vice versa does
require manually setting the tv itself (remote doesn't
work with that) but at least I can set sub titles, fast
forward through chapters on Dvd's and control the
volume, etc without having to constantly walk over to
the tv.
Programming the remote: I've noticed a lot of people
have tried using codes supplied by different universal
remote providers and couldn't find a code that
worked using their lists with this particular model...
there is a way that it can be done but it's a bit more
time consuming:
Many types of "universal" remotes give the option of
"scanning" the electronic device for a code if one is
not available or the one provided with lists does not
work... Every universal remote though needs certain
buttons pushed during the "scan" and they are all
different! Ha! So if you lost or misplaced the MANUAL
as well (like me!) you might need to do a search on a
manual for your particular universal remote, but I can
at least give you directions on programming a
"Zenith" Universal remote to "scan" for a Sylvania
TV/DVD/VCR combo model 6719DF:
Using the Zenith Universal Remote or any Universal Remote using it's "scan" method:
1: Shut off the TV
2. Press and hold "Code Search" on the remote until
the red LED
light lights up and stays lit.
3. Press the device button for the device (In my case,
for my crappy Sylvania combo, I pressed "TV".)
The LED light will blink once.
4. Scanning: Slowly press and release the "Power"
button on the remote, waiting a few seconds between
while watching the TV to turn on. It's very important
that you pause in between because if you do it too fast
and the TV turns on before you press the power
button again... you'll have to start all over. I've
learned that lesson.
It took 160 presses each time on that button to get the
correct code scanned! I had to do it over 3 times
before I stopped myself beforehand because I was
pressing it too quickly..
5. Right after the TV power turns on, press the "Mute"
button on the remote to set the code. It should work with few limitations (no "game" mode)
after that.

Replacing lamp


try this to see if it works!



If you replace the DLP lamp out of your Zenith or LG, you will need to reset the
counter…Otherwise you may get an annoying reminder every few days if you’re
surpassed the predetermined hour mark.


Ensure the TV is powered on.

Press and hold the MENU button on the TV



Press and hold the MENU button on your REMOTE
(hold both these until the service menu pops up 5-10 secs max.)



Let go of the REMOTE button first, then release the button on the TV



Press and hold the ENTER (or OK) button on the TV



Press and hold the MUTE button on the REMOTE
(hold both until the LAMP LIFE HOURS appears on the screen)



Let go of the REMOTE button first, then release the button on the TV
We suggest writing your lamp hours on a peice of masking tape and taping it to the back the TV for future reference



To reset the lamp counter, press SELECT (or the button in the middle of the direction arrove buttons). Hit SELECT a second time to confirm clearing the lamp counter


For certain models, you might have to tweak these steps slightly… offer your inputs!
