    My Sharp tv is stuck on tamper proof. It is a vcr/tv combo. The remote is a universal. The universal remote locked it and I can't get it to unlock it. If you can't unlock it with a universal remote then please still tell me how to unlock the tv anyway. I unpluged the tv and left it unpluged for at least 6 or 7 months and it still is locked on tamper proof. I woke up one morning and tried to turn the tv on and thats when I saw it was stuck on tamper proof. PLEASE RESPOND ASAP.

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.

    Thank you to John in Boise!!! You're da man!!! Your suggestion worked and I have use of my tv/vcr combo again without the purchase of $40 for the original Sharp remote! Was able to get it working again with my good ole universal remote without the use of the tamper proof button nor 'toggle' button!!! Just the 'setup' button, enter code

    You are welcome. We are still using our combo tv. I had forgotten that I had posted the fix. John.

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!!!!!!

Stuck on tamper proof.....remote is lost


Greetings horsepoor2,

Yes, there are a few options for new remotes for this unit. You can find several of them at the "order parts" option found at the bottom of www.bestbuy.com. In fact there is an option to purchase the unit that matched up directly with your television
which is RRMCG1330PESA!

I hope this helps.

Thank you,

Dorothy

Xbox 360


Behind the FacePlate, stuck to the console there should be a tamper proof sticker, if it's still there, your 360 hasn't been touched, if not then that wold indicate someone has taken the console apart. I think there may have been a sticker on the back somewhere also.

Please rate if at all useful, thanks!

Remote control for Sharp TV


Hold down the tamper proof button on your remote for up to ten seconds, until the tamper proof light will blink and light will go off. This will turn off the Tamper Proof button.

Let me know how it goes.

There should be a "TP" or "Tamper Proof" button on the remote for the TV. You need to press and hold this button for a few seconds. It seems the Tamper Proof mode is a child lock of sorts.

Tv wont turn on


I looked this set up, and Unfortanatly there is no universal remote that will unlock the set and also theres no way to do it without the original remote. Sorry to be the one with bad news. Also the right remote is available at 1-800-remotes or http://www.remotes.com for about 52 bucks + shipping. Good Luck
