One way to help a little is to remove the control unit and clean the front of the glass display and the rear of the plastic display window.

That can brighten it up if there is dust accumulation.

Always use a soft cloth (never a paper towel!) that is damp with non-ammonia cleaner.

In many cases, a weak display is due to backlight circuit trouble.

We repair those for US and Canadian customers, but in the UK you can contact Quality Electronic Repairs. I think they repair these.

Sharp microwave 8888 is flashing and I cannot remove


see this steps and fix it. God bless you

Reset the clock. Press "Clock" and the correct time, using the number pads. Press "AM/PM" if applicable, and press "Start" or "Clock" to confirm.

  • 2 Press "Timer On/Off" to reset the timer if nothing on the touch pad will operate. Use the number pads to select a new timed amount, if desired, and press "Timer On/Off" to start. Press again to cancel.
  • 3 Press and hold "Clear/Off" for three seconds if the timer will not function or is blinking when you touch the pads. This will release the "Child Lock" feature. Make a new touch pad selection.
  • 4 Disconnect power to the microwave if following Steps 1 through 3 does not resolve the blinking timer. Wait a few minutes, and then restore power to reset the microwave.

  • However if the problem persist the display board
    main control board is faulty

    On the touch pad numbers 3, 6, 7 and 0 dont work


    sounds like the touch pad control has failed ... there is a touch pad on this unit and also a control board located behind units touch pad... you can gain access to this by unplugging unit and removing console that houses touch pad /clock assembly ... once removed the only test there really is to do would be with power off remove ribbon cable to touch pad and make sure clear of any dust /debri and reconnect there are 2 small holes in ribbon cable that are used when reconnected fir into small slots and firmly connect... if that doesnt fix i would recommend a new touch pad... not sure what area your located... there is a distributor for sharp in dallas ,texas called
    global micro parts... reputable company that if you give them your model number they can assist you with the part.... good luck to you

    Unable to get the touch bottom to work


    Quite often on the compact models, the solution is to pull the control panel assembly off, remove the circuit board and clean the surfaces shown in the photo with high-grade alcohol.

    That would include the back of the LCD glass and both sides of the rubber strip.

    Microwave touch pad work light doesn't work


    We see this a lot. The problem is on the control panel, which we regularly repair nationwide for $39.95 postpaid.

    This light failure often occurs when a bulb goes out and the filament shorts, or when the bulbs are removed or installed without first unplugging the oven from the power line. Either can cause such a failure on the controller.
