Unable to change DNS nameservers to default.

I was pointing my domain to another webhost - 000webhost, so i was using their nameservers for a while. Now i want to switch it back to default and I can't seem to do it. I have already removed the domain reference from 000webhost.

When i switch to default and "save" this is what i get. I can't seem to change the nameservers manually to and as well.

Re: Unable to change DNS nameservers to default.

In the end, the issue resolved by itself... how? I'm not sure either....
First, I tried to unlock my DNS (I had it locked earlier) but was unable to because the site was telling me it couldn't process my request. In frustration, i spam clicked it and it worked eventually.
After the unlock is done, I went to revert the nameservers back to defaults. That worked.
Then I went back to lock my DNS. 
After the DNS was locked, I was able to change my DNS settings.
