I am trying to switch this tv from cable to air as we have just lost one of our favorite cable channels but would be able to recieve it if I can make this switch. I have tried to access the menu with a universal remote and I do get the menu to come up but then I am not able to toggle thru the choices listed. It shows an arrow next to timer which is at the top of the list but cannot get the arrow to move no matter what I try.

No,must ask Sharp,reset back to factory will not reset password,only setting.Tv should set simple password to easy to remember that the best.Can't switch back to free air,because the password stuck in cable mode.
Using the Color buttons on the Remote with the Channel List.
• Red (Antenna): Switches to Air or Cable.
• Green (Zoom): Enlarges or shrinks a channel number.
• Yellow (Select): Selects multiple channel lists.
• TOOLS (Option): Displays the Add(or Delete), Add to Favorite(or Delete from Favorite),
Timer Viewing, Channel Name Edit, and Auto Program menus..
The TV automatically cycles through all of the available channels and stores them in memory.
In rare cases, "Auto program" may miss a few channels due to weak signals and the channels may
not be added to the channel memory.
MENU → arrow up, arrow down→enter → arrow up, arrow down→enter →arrow up, arrow down →enter →arrow up, arrow down, arrow left , arrow right →enter → MENU,EXIT.
Hope this helps. I have the owners manual on file.
If it has a MENU button, press it and use the volume up and down to manipulate the choices, press menu again when you get to channel setup. you want AIR if using off air or Cable for cable. Next screen should say start and press menu again, the channels will start to cycle. If htat doesnt do it, you have a new model than the one I just did tonight. OneForall remotes will probably not have the setup button you need to autoprogram. Best bet is to find a Sanyo made universal remote or other Sanyo remote on Ebay as alot of the buttons are proprietary to manufacturer. Some TV's are useless without their own remote if not on a external tuner (cable SAT or digital)
Try setting tv to channel 3 or channel 4, this should coincide with the back of satellite box (a little black switch with a 3 or 4). then switch channels with your satellite box. I would recommend using another output off the satellite box to feed the other tv, a splitter loses some signal quality an can go bad as well. get a long rca cable to feed tv!
Solved that problem by installing and over-the-air antenna and am in the process of firing my cable company. I will retain their internet service and go to a base package on satellite for the likes of my kids' favorite networks (Nick, Cartoon Net, Disney) and my Fox News Channel), but my programming options are already growing from 7 analog to 13 digital from off-air in recent months and another 2-5 different subchannels are likely in my market in the next 24-36 markets (for free). Why pay to watch commercials when they are free?
You have the set in standard air mode rather than cable mode. I am not familiar with your particular model, but you should be able to switch it to cable (assuming that it is cable ready). Check for a switch on the back or front. If there is no switch, there should be a menu option for changing the set to receive either over-air or cable. Check under the setup menus.
