Sharp tv 25g s100 power button doesn't work, no original remote

Hello I have a sharp 25g s100 tv and the power button doesn't work. I also don't have the original remote, and had to program a universal one to turn the tv on and off. This was fine but occasionally the remote 'loses' the code and you have to reprogram or search for the code. Only problem is, the remotes have to be programmed when the tv is on, and since the power button doesn't work, I can't turn the tv on or program the remote. How do I replace the power button or find a dedicated remote that I don't have to program with the tv turned on? thanks

The remote may or may not be the real problem, it is possible on most of these to gain access with back removed directly to the tiny button switch that is in back of the plastic power button on the set and press it with something not sharp (a micro switch is what the button activates) and if set comes on get the remote programmed.

Your best bet if the set will make it on that way is to get the original remote----if in North America with the model number of the set contact either Sharp or Andrews Electronics---usually the original is under 35 dollars and no headaches with programming.

If set does not turn on manually with the micro button you may now have a actual circuit problem in the set.

    Thanks for your reply. I will look into how to get the front of the tv off so that I can access the power switch. I did also decide before to order a generic remote for that set which is on it's way. Your solution was helpful, but the button for me to click 'yes' disappeared... maybe if you reply again the button will come back and I can give you solution credit. Thank you anyhow charles

Normally, universal remote controls buttons might not work properly to what it meant to be. It is a common fault to most of the universal remote controls. Just see, Original is always Original, and Universal is always so. Just try to setup the remote control by using an other setup code for your device. Choose the code, which will give you.
maximum functionality. That is all.

BOUGHT A USED SHARP TV WITH THE POWER BUTTON MISSING .IT USED TO COME ON WITH REMOTE BUT EVEN WITH FRESH BATTERIES IN THE REMOTE IT WILL NOT TURN ON THE TV. DO YOU THINK THE REMOTE WENT BAD?


To power on the tv with your remote, the tv must be in stand-by. You should look if the tv is in stand by. If it is not, you should use a pen to power on the tv. (press where the button was)
hope it helps :)

I was given a Sharp 27N-S100 27" TV. Everything's fine but I don't have the remote control or user manual. I would like to get to the menu screen for the tv. How can I do this. Its hooked up to a cable box...


On the front of the TV you should be able to press both channel up and down at the same time and it will give you access to the TV menu. Once in the menu use the channel and volume up and down buttons to navigate.

Good luck....

I have a toshiba tv with a broken power button


Generally the power button has to be on first to put the TV in standby mode. If you cant do this no remote can ever work. Remotes are not capable of turning on a set that has no power mechanically turned off. and that is what the master switch does. once that standby light is off it is not live and consuming power and not under the control of a remote anymore

please rate our help++++Y=Thanks for using FIXYA

The power button on the tv is broken and i lost the remote


You can just try programming the remote with the Sharp codes they list in the instructions until you find the one that works. Follow the procedure for entering a code and try it. When you find the right one it will turn the set on when you hit the power button. The remote's instructions tell you to turn the set on to make finding the code easier (when the set shuts off you know you found the right one), but you can work without it.

I am trying to fix a Sharp 27k-s100 television.


Can you use the remote control to change the channels? If not, it may be that to need to reprogram the remote to work with your TV. I just had the same problem. I have GE universal remote and have reprogrammed it to work with my SHARP 27k-s100 TV by following these instructions: http://www.ehow.com/how_9190_program-ge-universal.html The code that worked for my TV is 173. Other codes listed for SHARP are: 004, 006, 012, 029, 095, 111, 112, 113, 122, 171. Good luck!
