Question about Sharp 25L-S100 25" TV

1 Answer

SHARP TV CHANNEL LOCK

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.

    dont know what type of sharpe it is. the universal control i have tunes in at 4100. I locked the tuning menu and cant tune in channels. There is a childlock button on the sharpe controls. I cant find a button or combination of buttons with this function on my universal controls.

    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.

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. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/ 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


Hi,

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.
