If you have a remote that can access menu and your remote has number buttons and an enter key, you can follow this instructions to go to installer menu. Note that the installer menu is slightly different for each model, eg. some options are not available.
I was able to go to installer menu using two universal remotes. The remotes that I used were Dish Network 3.0IR and RCA RCU300WBL. Both remotes programmed for Zenith H2531DT TV. The reason why I had to use two remotes is that Dish Network remote was only able to access menu. It did not have ENTER key but RCA remote had ENTER key but I wasn't able to go to menu with that.
To go to installer menu (different from regular menu):
- Hold MENU for 8 seconds. - Press 9, 8, 7, 6 and ENTER in the sequence. You should be in the installer menu now. There should be a line that looks something like this: 03 VERT POS 13
Use SELECT button to scroll through each option, and ADJ button to adjust the values for each option. For example, to enable the front panel buttons on your tv, set KEY DEFEAT to 0. Other options that you might want to check:
CHAN LOCK which locks your TV to a single channel and wont let you change (set 0 to turn off) START CH/VOL will set your tv to a specified channel when you turn on tv. (set 255 to disable)
You will have to look in the menu for some of the options because they are different for different TV series. A good place to find manual is on www.zenith.com or http://safemanuals.com/
I work in an old hotel and it took me few hours to figure out how to disable start channel lock. It drove me nuts. I hope someone finds this useful.
The CORRECT answer is you must purchase a LP702 remote. Google it to find one to buy. You must unlock channels and program the channels fresh.
Some standard zenith remotes allow you to reset the tv by popping off the cover of the remote and pressing an unmarked button.
The "H" model Zenith TVs are hotel/motel sets designed that
a roomer cannot access the menu feature. Your best bet would
be to purchase a name brand universal remote which has the
menu button feature or order an original Zenith master remote
which would not require programming. Once you have a workable
remote which will allow you to access the on-screen menus you
should be able to program the channels.
Hope this helps,
You will need the original replacement remote control for this TV set to program the TV set. There is an original replacement available here:
Go to Radio Shack and get a basic universal remote, about 10 dollars. Once you program the tv with the remote you will be able to get all of the channels. The workers at Radio Shack are very helpful if you have any problems.
