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.

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

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!

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.

Forgot v-chip code

Sharp has several locking and V-chip commands but one of these three possibilities should work.
Newer Combos With "Time Limiter" Feature
If the "Secret Number" is forgotten, simultaneously press the STOP, RESET, and VOL up buttons on the front panel of the set.
This disables both the "Channel Lock" and the "Time Limiter" features.

CTV's Lock Mode---Blue screen and display says,Parental Control Rating Unknown
Try This: Hold Channel up and down on the set while pluging in AC cord.
Or Try This: On the set, press volume up and channel down at the same time.

CTV's V-Chip Release
When screen asks you to "input secret number" press and hold channel up and down on the TV set until message disappears. Press menu 2 times to exit.
Hope this helps!

No audio on select channels

Go into the TV's menu and see what type of audio mode its set on. If it says sap turn on to stereo or mono. If it says stereo, set to mono. Also try to unplug set for 12 to 24 hours.
