Sharp VCR VC-AA350 removing child lock

Child lock mode has been accidentally put on, i used to be able to remove it by pressing and holding the keylock button but somehow this time round it seems like it needs a 4digit code to 'unlock' the child lock. how can i reset the entire player as i am unable to use the VCR now due to the child lock. your help would be much appreciated, i really need the VCR to record my favourite shows thank you!

My vcr is locked no button works

Sounds as if the child lock function has been activated, this can be rectified by either a "Lock" button on the remote or press & hold either the Stop or Play button on the VCRs control panel for 5-10 seconds. You did not mention what model you have & there are different ways to over-ride the Child lock depending on the model. Failing this try to refer to your instruction book

There is a "key" on

Sounds like you have put a child lock on it. If you don't have the manual to remove it, then visit the Sharp website, they might have a PDF free of it, or should help otherwise.

Where can i get help for my Sharp VHS Model VC-AA350, needs a new head,want new spares

I'm sorry to say this but many video heads are more expensive than buying a new machine. But you might get lucky. I did see some parts for sharp at Curry's Partmaster. And you can also try Grandata.
Also try CPC, Willow Vale Electronics.

Would you happen to know the 3 digit manufacture code for a Sharp VC-H992U Video Cassette Recorder? I need this info to input it into my TV so that the VCR will work with the TV. The TV provider is Dish...

Hello! Here is the link to our remote codes, if that fails follow these additional steps for the Power Scan this should resolve it as well.

  1. With the desired equipment on, press and hold the correct Mode button until all mode button backlights illuminate (about 3 seconds), then release.
  2. For AUX mode Power Scan ONLY: press 0 for a TV, press 1 for a VCR/DVD, press 2 for any other device, then press *.
  3. Press and release the Power button.
  4. Press the Up button once a second while pointing the remote at the desired equipment. If the code for the equipment comes up, the equipment will power off.
  5. Press the POUND (#) button. If the code entered is valid for the remote, the mode light flashes three times.
  6. To verify the code works try several different functions for that equipment.

Hi Pukkaca

Sounds like the child lock is on. Hold the play button in for 5 seconds on the remote. IF that does not work, hit me back here and I will find the one that does.
