Question about Sharp 25L-S100 25" TV

1 Answer


I have a Sharp TV that is about 8 years old, and have lost its manual. I dont know the exact product name but its 25." The problem is that in trying to tune the channels I have managed to put a lock on them, which I cannot remove. Please can you help? When I go to try to tune them a big key flashes up in the middle of the screen and I cannot continue. I do not have a child lock function on the remote or on the screen itself. Many thanks for any advice.

    I got this 27" from a yard sale and come to find out its locked on certain channels. It says 'v-chip activated' and then the picture goes completely blue. Very frustrated because I have no idea what the 4 digit code is to reset it...can you help?

Probably the best way is to contact SHARP directly. The owner's manual can be downloaded from SHARP's homepage for free.

How does input switch on a Sharp TV that is 8 years old?

Well, its hard to say but consider that the TV is 8 years old...

For example, lets just say that the power supply was No Good and the replacement cost was $195.00 and another $50.00 or so to install.

For another $100.00 or so bucks, you can find another LG 52" New under warranty.

Chances are the unit has seen its day.

The main and other boards will need service or replacement and you really do not want to mix, New and Old boards.

Sharp tv #14T1-L unlock

Try a few "universal methods" for unlocking the child lock. Some televisions have a universal code built in for disabling the child lock --no matter what your code is. A common code is "0000.". However, it might not work to some TVs. If you wish to get more details, surf the site linked here. Pull up previous posts there, either by type in the model name to your set in its search box, or view it in Timeslide / Mosaic option.

How do i unlock my sharp TV which has a lock


I suspect that this has something to do with the channel lock, also known as parental control.

See the link below for the manual on how to check and change these settings. The parental control settings are on pages 15 - 25.

Whilst the manual doesn't specifically mention a lock icon being displayed, it seems logical.

Best of luck!

Read these troubleshootingtips. The older heaters are the best, most reliable, and easiest totroubleshoot.

You state: "Do not knowthe product name or number"
Search the unit thoroughly. All parts do not fit allheaters. You must identify your heater in order to get the correct parts.

How to acess set-up menu without factory remote

The manual can be found near the bottom of the Product page for this TV.

From the manual, pg 11 -

If you misplaced your Remote Control you can still access most settings via the MAIN MENU screen when you press both CH UP (8) and DOWN (9) on the TV set. Some features of your TV Set will not be accessible without the Remote Control. If you lost your Remote Control, contact a Sharp Authorized Servicer by calling 1-800-BE-SHARP for a replacement.

Let us know if this fixes it for you.

New TV won't ''talk to'' old VCR

using the magnovox remote, reprogram the vcr's channels. set it up to use cable not air. when the vcr was unlugged it lost it's channel memory. don't buy new cables, you're getting a picture and sound so that means your rca cables are ok.
