Dont know password for auto install and need to... sharp model 32ax5m Care to elaborate just a little..... Auto install what? Are you talking about parental lock?? Is the rest of the system locked out as well??? Have you tried the reset procedures in the owner's manual????

    That could very well be a set built specifically for the motel industry - hospitals etc... If so the same parental lock code features might not work but you can try these:

    1.) press the STOP, RESET, and VOL up buttons on the front panel of the set and hold for 8-10 seconds.


    2.) Hold Channel up and down on the set while pluging in AC cord


    3.) On the set, press volume up and channel down at the same time.


    Try going into the customer menu and see if parental lock features are activated. If it asks to "input secret number" press and hold channel up and down on the TV set until message disappears. Press menu 2 times to exit.

    If none of these work you could call Sharp Customer Service 1-800-BE-SHARP (237-4277) and ask them... A owner's manual would most certainly cover this and that would be the ONLY place I know that you could get one...

    Good Luck!

Tuning a sony trinitron tv

Most of the sony TV's comes with an auto tuning facility and all your need is ensure that the RF inout/cable TV or antennae is plugged into before the auto tuning is activated.
The auto tuning is available inthe older models on the set and in the newer models on the remote control. Choose program menu , tuning, auto mode.
Also you can search inthe manual mode individually and preset the channels position to your convenience such as news channels together, movies together etc.

I am unable to tune my tv in as i have lost my instructions the serial number is c748016195

The serial number does not offer any information, what we need to know is the make & model of your TV. Most flat panel TV's will auto tune. If you pull up your main menu & look for set-up or installation menu & then enter into this menu & you should find a sub-menu for auto tune.

Cannot change network settings - Admin password unknown

Got in with random trialling passwords for the Administrator... finally found the default password for Administrator on the Sharp MX2300N was "admin". Should have known...

Got in, set up the IP's and away we go again. Did not have to go in with any maintenance mode or re-setting the whole system.

It is a plug in, it will be in your plugin list as long as the plugin type is compatable with your DAW. ( ie. RTAS, VST, AU ect).

Probably the best way is to contact SHARP directly. The owner's manual can be downloaded from SHARP's homepage for free.
