Question about Sharp 32C-530 32" TV

1 Answer

Menu Access My Sharp TV remote will happily scroll through channels, adjust the volume, switch it on and off and bring up teletext, but it steadfastly refuses to open the Menu screen. I can't access colour or contrast, tuning set-up or screen resolution (this one I desperately need to do as well). It's a good TV in really good condition and I don't want to have to ditch it because of this silly problem. When I push Menu on the remote, the receiving light on the TV flickers, so the signal is definitely being sent. Is there any other way into the Menu or an easy way to fix this? Thanks.

Most sets have a menu button on the front, although it is sometimes hidden behind a small panel. Look for that & check your owner's manual. There may also be a master reset, which is usually a small hole that requires a pencil point to activate. These are always marked, but are very small. Some sets have them 7 some don't. You can also try unplugging the set for 1/2 hour, & then try again with the remote. If all this fails, you will most likely need a qualified service person to look into the problem, as there are no user serviceable parts inside, but lots of hazardous voltages.

I have a Sharp TV model LC-32SB24U. I cannot access the menu screen because I lost the remote control. Is there another way I can change channels without a remote?

The Sharp LC-32SB24U has menu, input, volume up/down and channel up/down buttons on the top of the TV. When you access the Menu using the buttons on the TV, the Input button is the same as the Enter key. The volume up/down buttons map to the left and right arrows. The channel up/down buttons remain up and down. The Menu button is the closest to the power button (on the right). The volume buttons are the ones on the left.

Make sure that the input is set to TV to change channels. Then you need to program the available channels, access the Menu and navigate to Setup (left/right arrows). Press Input to enter this sub-menu. Then use the Up/Down arrows to select CH Setup. Press Input again to enter. Now you can set the channel source and let the TV scan for channels that have a strong enough OTA signal or are unencrypted cable channels. These are the top two options in the Channel Setup menu. The details are available in the manual which is available here: . For OTA channels, you may need to check the signal strength under the Antenna Setup - Digital option in this Setup menu. OTA Digital signals will not be tuned in if the signal strength is low. It's an all-or-none tuning; amplifiers and external antennas may help. See for details of transmitters and the recommended antenna for your area. (Warning: damaged amplifiers can become filters and block the signal on some channels. Replace the amplifier if it is damaged.)

If you look to replace your original remote with a universal remote, you'll need one that was programmed more than 6 months after the TV was released. That may be 12/2005 based on the manual copyright date. Look for a remote that has a Menu and Input or Source button and check all of the codes to find one that matches all of the features on your original remote. Amazon has an OEM remote for the LC-32SB24U; also has a replacement remote available that has been programmed for the TV. (On, search for the LC32SB24U.)

I hope this helps.

No Remote - Need to access Menu

We had the same problem - this worked for us:

1. Unplug TV
2. Press Channel up and Volume up at same time, while plugging TV back in (two person job - it will pull up a service screen)
3. Press Channel up and Chanel down at same time. (Access to menu screen)
4. Use Volume up and Volume down to switch between menu options. We finally found the EZ set up screen.

Somehow in the process we muted the TV and are now working on getting the sound back. :)
Good luck to you!

No remote specific to Sharp combo to turn off closed captionning

on some models the menu button is on the front disguised as the volume up/down or channel up/down buttons. you have to push both up/down buttons on either one of these to bring up the menu.

This is a setting in the menu set-up somewhere or simply press the display button on the remote control unit.

Channel memory reset


Usually the menu can be accessed from the buttons on the console, sometimes by pressing a "menu" button but other times by pressing both Volume or Channel (+ AND -, UP AND DOWN) buttons simultaneously. Menu levels are usually selected with one or the other of Volume or Channel, and toggles/selections with whichever doesn't do the levels.
