Zenith dvt412 Starting last week the volume on my system started going down by itself. I've taken the batteries out of the remote and it will still go down by itself over a period of a few minutes. I unplugged it and left it unplugged for a few minutes but still same problem persists. Any ideas?

Sounds like the system switch is broken. They use a piece of spring steel thats bent up to provide a snapping action (its very small). After years of continuous pressing the metal fatigue fails and breaks so there is nothing to keep the contacts apart. The most common button you will see this is in the volume up because its used the most. It seems that people usually adjust their volume up in more steps than lowering the volume as their ears adjust to the levels plus people tend to push the volume up button harder than the volume down.. There are a couple things you can do when this switch goes bad. There is probably a button on there that you dont ever use or could live without (loudness perhaps). You can take the good switch off that button and replace the volume button with it. You can do this by either desoldering them or by popping the clip off the switch and replacing guts. I have found it much easier to desolder them however because the small pieces are difficult to manipulate. If you dont want to lose the function of another button, you can try matching the switch with one from an electronics supply place like digikey, or go to a repair shop and ask them to replace the button or sell you a good button out of a broken face. Good luck!

Zenith Plasma TV model Z42pj240 ... IR issues when trying to control the volume and on-screen features. If i use a IR remote to adjust volume, the sound go up and down by itself.

That is the small board in the TV that has the inferred sensor located on the board, it may be a little hard to find though, but if you can find one it won't be expensive, most the times when sets are scrapped out that board goes in the garbage because it has a really small failure rate.

No sound from zenith dvt412 stuck in bypass mode..how to override?

this is a protection circuit.
When bypass mode then it means that something in the power supply module has failed and the unit then goes into protection mode to protect the board components.
Your surround sound need service from a qualified tech. No other remedy.

Sound but no picture. Not progressive scan issue I think.

Have you tried swapping the scart lead ends around, this might work.

Car starts all by itself....

Sounds like you have it in a timed start mode. Are you remote starting your car with the lock and unlock buttons? I have also seen viper remote starts crank the car when the battery level is low, if it is in voltage mode instead of tach mode. Once the voltage gets so low it will crank the car and allow it to charge the battery.

Volume increases on its own intermittently

When the volume increased did the display show it doing so as if someone was turning the knob?  I mean did the volume go from like level 15 to 30 or did the unit's level stay constant while the audio volume increased?
Were you alone or sharing the room with a jokester who has a universal remote?
Does this problem occur when the batteries are removed from your remote?
Are you sure the 'volume up' button on the unit itself is disengaging properly after being pressed?
