Re: Problem

There should be a "TP" or "Tamper Proof" button on the remote for the TV. You need to press and hold this button for a few seconds. It seems the Tamper Proof mode is a child lock of sorts.

Please tell me how to turn off tamper proof on my Sharp tv/vcr combo without original remote. The remote I have doesn't have a toggle button. Thank You!

As you know, the Tamper Proof function is activated and de-activated holding the Toggle/Source/Input button for about five seconds.

If your universal remote does not have this button (under any name), then try all buttons.

Try also disconnecting power cord for five minutes, this will reset most TV functions.

If still no luck, then you will need a different remote to get rid of the function.
Try all buttons on your remote. If the Tamper Proof had been activated using this remote with this codes, then it can be turned off using the same remote.

TV won't turn on

Have you tried switching inputs? On some sets if it is set to s video all you get is a dark screen. Check your connections if you have other inputs. If you can't switch you should at least get the menu on the screen proving the tv is working and it is a setting.

Hold down the tamper proof button on your remote for up to ten seconds, until the tamper proof light will blink and light will go off. This will turn off the Tamper Proof button.

Try pressing and HOLDING the button on the remote for a few seconds. This button is a sort of "kid-proof" lock, to prevent curious fingers from playing with the TV.
