I do not have a user manual for my console tv and cannot get my tv/vcr or dvd player to play on the television we purchased. There is no aux buttons on the menu screen and yet there are plugins on the back to plug in the video components. We have dish input and I am not sure what is wrong and why i cannot get my items to play dvd or vcr on this television. It does not play even if i turn off the dish and put it on channel 3 or 4. I need a manual or connection help
If you lost the remote for a zenith television and want play a movie on an input, use the channel up/down buttons to navigate. Ususally if your on ch 2, press the down button. Line 1/2 will appear on a blackscreen if the device is off. Otherwise, I have had great success using a GE universal remote with my Zenith tv/vcr combo unit. (by the way, I work for the technical support department for my city's local cable company)

Hello, Typically they use either 2 or 3. Your vcr might have a slide switch that will allow you to select either channel. You can usually find it by just switching channels. If it still looks like your not connecting, make sure cables, either coax or rca, are pushed in securely. You can always troubleshoot by trying other vcr or dvd player and also try on other tv.
Hope this Helps
There are connections on the back of your TV for Audio and Video inputs. You connect the corresponding connections to your DVD player. You then use the TV/VCR SOURCE button on your remote to change to that input. In case you don't have your manual the following web address will take you to a place that will let you download the manual.
I'm assuming you mean a DVD player, not a CD player?
1. You can get an input splitter (basically an A/B switch for the cable), and connect to that, manually switching between the two sources.
2. You can replace the VCR and the DVD player with a combination DVD/VHS unit.
Although it would seem logical, it is unlikely that you can hook the DVD player to the VCR, since the VCR will refuse to let the signal pass though it, as part of its MacroVision copy protection. (This is the same sytem that prevents you from recording DVDs onto VHS tapes.)
