Default code is "0000" on most sharps to enter the V-chip settings. If not you will have to reset the password which is listed in the manual if you have it.
Clearing the password or secert number on newer sharps are as follows.
1. Press MENU to display the MENU screen, and then arrow to "SETUP"
2 . Then select on of the options until the password or secert number input screen dislpays.
3. Press and hold both the "Channel Up" and the "Volume Up" buttons simultaneously until message apperas on the screen. Then you can enter new or leave blank number.
If this doesn't work goto sharps web site and download the manual if available.
Hit the Menu button on the TV. 2. 'INPUT SECRET No.' should appear. 3. Press and hold both VOL (+) and CH DOWN (9) on the TV set simultaneously until the message 'INPUT SECRET No.' disappears. 4. The vchip settings should be disabled now and the Parental controls menu should be presented, 'disable' Status if need be.
on my Sharp 36R-s400. Go to menu , then parental control. When dispaly asks for secret number,
press and hold volume up and channel down simultaneously until message is cleared.
This turns off parental control and clears the password.
Having trouble looking up your model number so could you recheck it, In the mean time set may have got into a service menu, try while the set is on and from the front controls hold vol- and chanel - at the same time
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!
