I have a Sharp TV for which I have "hidden" certain channels, so that when you scroll through the channels, some are skipped. I have since lost the remote, but I have an old VCR remote programmed for the TV. Only the channel and volume buttons work.
Anyway, now I want to "unhide" some of the channels, but I don't have the remote. Is there a way to reset the channels without the remote? Or do I need to buy a new remote?
Usually the menu can be accessed from the buttons on the console, sometimes by pressing a "menu" button but other times by pressing both Volume or Channel (+ AND -, UP AND DOWN) buttons simultaneously. Menu levels are usually selected with one or the other of Volume or Channel, and toggles/selections with whichever doesn't do the levels.

Need to go into the menu look for the channel setup then check the skipped channels make sure channel 1 isn't the only Channel not checked also Look at Your scanned channels in the channel list how many do you have is channel 1 it ? you may need to rescan your channels . If the TV worked OK before but Not now try resetting Your TV , BUT do this last as You will need to reset all the parameters in Your initial setup as well as rescanning channels also the Volume may blast you after reset I always install a set of earphones in the Audio phone jack first . To reset the TV Unplug it from the back of the set wait 30-40 seconds reconnect the plug while holding the Power Button Reset Your Options and Settings then Rescan your channels Don't forget the volume and to unplug earphones Good Luck
U still have the tv original remote?Yes,must used it to get into chanel 3.Because the manual buttons channels up and down on the tv bazel frame will skip channel 3.Only able get into channel 3 by manual channel buttons up or down only if it was save in the tv memory.Try website like Remotes.com to buy the tv original remote.
Usually if you go into the setup menu, there is an option to allow you to either "scan" for a channel, or "input" a channel. In this case, select "input" and see if the TV will allow you to press the up and down channel buttons and go to a specific channel. If so, when you get to channel 4, press the "add this channel" option (or whatever the menu option says) and you should then be able to go to channel 4 using the buttons on the front without skipping over it.
Channel Edit makes it easy for you to save or delete channels in the list of channels in the TV?s memory.
1. Using the Number buttons, select the channel you wish to save or delete.
2. Press MENU to see the menu.
3. Press upper or lower key to scroll through the menu until SETUP is highlighted.
4. Press right key to enter the SETUP menu.
5. Press upper or lower key to scroll through the SETUP menu until CHANNEL EDIT is highlighted.
6. Press right key to choose SAVED or DELETED. Choose SAVED to add the channel to the TV?s memory. It will be available using the CH +/? buttons.
Choose DELETED to remove the present channel from the TV memory. To clear the menu press STATUS/EXIT. Or, wait a few seconds after you finish your adjustment; the menu will disappear automatically.

No it only supports analog. I'm pretty sure no CRT TV would be digital reception. Here is a link... Scroll down until you see the specs. First line is your answer: http://www.ciao.com/Sharp_32F540_CRT_TV_CRT__10021988#productdetail
you have a programing error in the main control ic it ca be repaired but its $$$$$$ my guess is 150.00 -200.00 the control ic has a modified control memory the memory is held in place by a charged capacator if you unplug it and leave it for a week and plug it back in it might be ok for a while if not try unplug it for a month . that might be enough for a reset but the problem will keep comeing back the chip is damaged
