Question about Sharp 32R-S50 32" TV

1 Answer

Lost Remote Hello! My son lost the remote to my Sharp TV and accidentally changed the channel off of channel 3, which it is required to be on for cable. The TV will not allow me to manually put it on channel 3 (it goes right from 2 to 4) and the remote we have for the cable will work the the volume on the TV but for some reason, not the actual TV channels. Any ideas on how I can get the TV back to channel 3?

Re: Lost Remote

I personally would get myself a "Universal Remote". These units will operate almost ANY unit that uses Infrared... Ya Punch a "Code" in for your particular TV etc, and thats it... total conrtol...

I lost my remote and can't change the channel on the control panel. It is on channel 02 and it won't change even when I hit the channel+ or channel- button.


Your problem is stuck keys in your T.V. It usually just needs cleaning, BUT it is hard to clean, because you gonna have to open up the whole TV. I advice you just buy a new remote from JVC or just buy a "Universal Remote".

I lost the code book and can not connect my universal remote.


Three digit universal remote code for Sharp are:-

004/ 009/ 079/ 095/ 111/ 112/ 114/ 122/ 123/ 124/ 173

Four digit universal remote code for Sharp are:-

0079 0123 0063 0020 0004 0009 0226 0266 0006 0095 0122

Direct Code Entry
  1. Press and hold the SETUP button until the red indicator stays on, then release the SETUP button.
  2. Press and release the desired Mode button (TV, VCR, etc.). The red indicator blinks, then stays lit.
  3. Enter the 4 digit code from the code tables. Note: after a valid code entry, the red indicator turns off. For an invalid code, the red indicator flashes.
  4. With your device on, press CHANNEL UP. If the device responds, no further programming is required. Note: If some buttons do not operate your device, try one of the other codes for your brand.

TV locked on channel 3 and have no remote

Thats EXACTLY what happened to our tv!

Ours was originally locked on channel 4 but I left it unplugged overnight and now its oddly stuck on channel 3.

The only thing I can think of to do is try to search for/buy a remote that will work on the tv to bring the menu up again. I don't know how to manually reset it or do anything.

Lost remote

Actually I found there are several remotes that work. The first is the Bright House networks remote, the larger one...The second is The Universal Remove Control by GE. It's numbered 24944 in the upper right hand corner of the paper. It's sold for $4.94 at Walmart in the checkout area...

I found that manually inputting the code for the remote doesn't work. You have to do a search for the code using their method...on this particular remote from Walmart, its hold the setup button down until it lights up, then press and depress the TV button...then press channel up until the TV changes channels. It worked once, but I just kept going, the 2nd time it worked, then I pressed the mute button [to keep the code] and it simply press input and it switches to AV.

I have to admit I thought it was ridiculous that you can't use this particular TV without the remote, but I was happy that I went through the effort the first time to keep trying remotes...

This is the first kids TV that I have found that you can't find the AV channel by going through the channels AND you can't hook up two items to the AV outlets because you have to disconnect the back or front ones, to use the other....PLUS it only comes with a dual AV outlet, instead of the 3 plugs [red, white, yellow] only has the white and yellow.

A disappointing TV to say the least.

Freak accident, won't show 75% of channels now!

I lost the manual to this set, but last night I found the Menu button on the remote. I pressed it and then clicked SetUp. There was an option for Quick SetUp of Cable/Satellite. I clicked that and it was then able to find all my cable channels again. I still do not know how we messed it up by bumping the remote -- especially when it was turned 90 degrees away from the screen -- but this has restored it. Thanks.
