Question about Sharp LC52SB55U LCD TV

1 Answer

Remote stopped working

We replaced the batteries but the remote for the Sharp LC-52SB55U does not work at all. Not sure if this is a problem with the remote or the TV.

I also tried resetting the TV's settings back to the factory default just in case there was a setting that stopped the remote from working.

    The remote stopped working. I suspect though it is the tv and not the remote. My IR sensor still picks up something. I had my direct TV remote working with volume for the TV as well and at the same time this stopped working, which leads me to believe it is the tv and not the remote since the direct tv remote still works for all direct tv dvr features except the volume and mute.

    Great solution! I unplugged the TV as suggested for 5 mns and the restarted the same. Problem just vanished as I was able to now use the Dish TV's as well as the original Sharp RC. Thanks, "baldmeaney."

If the TV still works fine and it's just the remote malfunctioning, try removing the batteries from the original remote and leave them out for 10-15 minutes. Put the batteries back in and try the remote.

The remote for my Sharp LC42D85 stopped working. I changed the batteries but that did't work. Any suggestions?

When your remote stops working it usually is caused by 2 things.
The first being that the remote control has either been banged against a hard surface thereby damaging some of the internal components.
The other option being that the previous batteries leaked inside and also caused some for of damage.
In the first option you just have to get a replacement remote for your unit. In the second option you can get a repair expert to take a look at the remote clean it up for you and you remote is working fine again.
Hope this solution has been helfpul?

I had the same issue with my Sharp Aquos 52 inch LCD TV. I called Sharp. The tech had me unplug my TV, take the batteries out of the remote (TV remote not cable) and press all buttons on the remote (including the buttons under the flip top at the bottom of the remote). I did this, put the batteries back in and plugged in the tv and everything worked. I had gone 4 months having to use the surround sound for volume and turning the TV on and off by hand. This took 2 minutes to fix.

Re-program a Sharp remote control for LC-46XD1E

Are you sure it is the remote that has stopped working? If you get something like a camera phone and put it over the LED on the remote and press the buttons (with the phone in camera mode) the camera will pick up the infered signal from the remote. This will rule out if it is the TV or remote.

If you get the infered signal then your TV is faulty (possibly a main pcb fault) if you dont then it is your remote. Which as far as I am award you can not reprogram, but you can get them from places on the internet (search on google) for a couple of 10 pound.

Remote stopped working

Try the buttons on the TV to verify that the set is working. Then;
Step 1- Pull the batteries out of the remote and leave them out until Step 4.
Step 2- Press and release each and every button one at a time on the remote control until every button has been pressed and released at least once!
Step 3- If your remote has slide switches, you must move the switch to each position then repeat the button pushing in Step 2.
(When you're done, be sure to put the slide switch in the correct position to operate the unit the remote came with!)
Step 4- Put the batteries back into the remote, being very careful to install them correctly.
New batteries should be used if you're not sure about the old ones.
If you are still having problems, you may have to replace the remote.

Remote Control Problem

take the batteries out of the Sharp remote press and hold the POWER button on the top of the remote for 5 seconds. Put batteries back in. Make sure that function is set to TV. Should work - if not call Sharp. If you are inside the original manufacturer warranty they will replace remote
