Remote volume control for Sharp Aquos 42inch LCD not working

The remote for my Aquos 42 inch LCD tv is working well except for the volume control which was working until a week ago. I changed the batteries but that did not help. I can change the volume on the TV directly but not with the remote. When I press the volume control button on the remote the red light on the face of the remote flashes indicating the signal is being sent but the volume bar does not show up across the bottom of the screen and the volume does not change. The volume bar does show up when I press the mute button but after pressing the mute button a second time to allow for sound I can hear the sound and I can still see the volume bar for approximately 15 seconds but I cannot change the volume. Again right now I can only change the volume directly on the tv, not via the remote. Please advise. Thank you.

    The problem was that on the top right there is a function button that was on audio. I needed to press the function button to get it on TV to change the TV volume. Thank you for your help.

    The front controls do not function (pwr on, channel up/down, volume up/down, input & menu). TV only operates via remote.

    no sound the volume bar stays on the screen showing volume is off. remote wont work and the controls on the tv dont work. Can press source on the tv but it just scrolls through the opitions very fast and wont stop.

User 'rapolley' is absolutely right. One can cycle through the functions to access different options, ie. 'TV', 'Audio', 'DVD', etc. I stumbled upon this solution when I thought my 'Menu' button wasn't working. All I had to do is cycle through the 'Functions' and choose 'Menu' once I get to 'TV'. Thanks!

My sharp 32" LCD stopped recognizing the remote, b...

I had the same issue with my Sharp Aquos 52 inch LCD TV. I called Sharp. The tech had me unplug my TV, take the batteries out of the remote (TV remote not cable) and press all buttons on the remote (including the buttons under the flip top at the bottom of the remote). I did this, put the batteries back in and plugged in the tv and everything worked. I had gone 4 months having to use the surround sound for volume and turning the TV on and off by hand. This took 2 minutes to fix.

Programming the Acquos Remote

There is a code out there to try.  The code would be 47.  Just follow the steps in your manual on how to program this box and you should be able to go from there. Can't garantee that it will work as that code came out with the newer tv but it should work.

TV is under warranty. Get a tech to look at it. It could require a new IR sensor, a firmware upgrade or a system reset that only a tech can do called an Industry Initialization that is in the service mode only
