Question about Televison & Video
I cannot unlock the tamper proof mode that someone inavertantly stuck ob the tv. It is a 3 in 1 tv/vrc/dvd.
How I solved the tamper proof stuck on . I used the Philips universal remote (sru3004wm/17) pushed tv button and then pushed the set up buttom until the light stayed on. I entered the code for the model of the tv and the set up light went out. I then pushed the power buttom and the tamper proof light blinked. I then pushed the enter button and held it while the tamper proof light blinked 3 time and then went out. Problem solved. John in Boise.

If the TV is the same as the one that my father has, hold the tamper prof button in front the tv, and it flashes like 3-4 times. then the tamper button should be turned off.

I was putting my daughter to bed and she has an old Sharp vcr/tv in her room. When I went to turn on the tv it wouldn't work, after trying multiple things I realized the tv was blinking tamper proof. My boyfriend and I couldn't figure it out, and of coarse I did't have the owners manual anymore. So my bright idea to take a chamce and google Why does my tv say tamper proof was solved by several of these people telling me what to do. You guys were right, just hold down the tamper proof button for 5-10 seconds and it will turn off. Problem solved! Thanks for saving our bedtime!!!!!!
