Question about Zenith Z36X31D TV

1 Answer

Need help with PIP

Having a probem with the PIP on this TV and feel like I must be missing something obvious. Note: I don't have the remote...long gone... Here goes: Coax cable from cable box into coax input on TV. DVD/VCR connected via red/white/yellow RCA cable to RCA in's on TV. When I go to menu on TV, I can choose the cable box as the "main" source and the VCR as the PIP and it shows up perfectly... UNTIL...after the menu screen disappears (a few seconds), the PIP window disappears too! How can I get the PIP box to remain on the screen after exiting the menu?? Am I missing something glaringly obvious? My wife wants to be able to watch tv and run an exercise video in the PIP box... HELP!! Adam

    That's kinda what I figured...I have since ordered a replacement remote on eBay and hopefully that will do the trick!

    Thanks!

When you go into the menu to choose the PIP source the PIP comes on to confirm that a valid source has been selected. It is normal for the PIP to close when the menu is exited. To display the PIP normally you will need a remote with a PIP button. Most universal remotes today have PIP functions but if you get a Zenith original replacement then you are guaranteed to enjoy the other PIP features such as size, position, freeze and swap.

    I want JUST the PIP (dvd) but it won't be selected. It worked fine two nights ago. Now we're stuck on the Main Source

I have a protron pltv 4250. I don't have a remote control and the tv is stuck on pip. so i have 2 screens one shows the tv program and the other screens stays blue. What can I do to fix this...

Few universal remotes will provide functionality to any but the most basic of functions.

PIP only functions properly when being used with HDMI.

I feel you will need to buy a dedicated remote. I found some on Amazon for a reasonable price.

I have pip screen on and i can see 2/3 of the screen. How can i see picture 100% of the screen?

On your remote for the tv you should see a button with PIP written on it press this button. Note some tv remotes have a slide down cover on them to hide certain button if this is the case it may be under there.

hope this helps you out

Vizio remote

The remotes for the TV and Direct TV box are universal remotes that can operate very basic functions for whatever else they are programmed to control. If you can program the TVs remote to operate the Direct TV box it will basically only control power and channel. Maybe something else, but not much. The same goes for the Direct TV remote. It will control basic functions on the TV; power, channel & volume. Best bet would be to purchase a universal remote that can learn functions from the original or just keep both remotes available by the TV.

PIP (Picture In Picture) - Your television should have the capability because it has two built in tuners. It can show two channels at the same time or show one channel and one video source (whatever is connected to the audio/video inputs). However, because you are using DTV (Direct TV) you are very limited because you are not using the built in tuners on your television. You should be able to see one picture from the DTV channel and one from lets say your DVD player. If your DTV box has two tuners built in then you should have the PIP capabilities from your DTV and not your television. I'm guessing your DTV is a single tuner (one satellite cable to your box). If you want to watch two different channels you'll need to either upgrade your box or attach another box to your television.

Option: you could also connect an antenna to your television this way you can use the PIP function. Obviously you'll only be able to view whatever local stations you can get with the antenna. Depending on where you live you might or might not have a lot of channels to choose from.

Display problem

Yes, the "PIP" is the display of multiple channels at one time. On your remote you need to go to the zoom pip button and press it, if nothing go to the meno then look up the "PIP" tab and go there to try to zoom out.

PIP stuck

MrKevin, some Hitachis have 2 different pip buttons on the remote, I believe 1 says pip mode or something to that effect, do the rest of the functions on your remote work? Check and see if you have a second pip button and be sure the remote is set to "tv" if it has that little slide button on the side, good luck, hope this helps

My JVC PIP Won't work, pls help!

I was told that in order to view 2 different channels at the same time u have to subscribe to SKYCable and use the digital input instead of the antenna input and the antenna input you will have to use the regular antenna since there is only one tuner in the TV
