Question about Sharp 13VT-R100 13 in. TV/VCR Combo

Remote control for Sharp TV

Accidentally hit the tamper proof button on the remote while watching a VCR last night. Could not turn the tv off, no button functions would work. Unplugged it, tried again 3 more times and the tamper proof key light on the front of the tv comes on now when I plug the tv in, but no picture. I can't find the booklet that came with the tv. I'm sure it is in some box in the garage. Tried looking on the tv for a button to reset the tv - none. Tried hitting buttons at the same time on the remote and tv to get the tamper proof light to come off, and nothing. Any ideas?

    Tamper proof light is on and TV doesn't respond. Tried disconnecting electricity. Tried holding down multiple buttons at the same time. Product is 13VT-K150 TV VCR Combo. Moreover, Sharp doesn't recognize product on their website!

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.

Please tell me how to turn off tamper proof on my Sharp tv/vcr combo without original remote. The remote I have doesn't have a toggle button. Thank You!

As you know, the Tamper Proof function is activated and de-activated holding the Toggle/Source/Input button for about five seconds.

If your universal remote does not have this button (under any name), then try all buttons.

Try also disconnecting power cord for five minutes, this will reset most TV functions.

If still no luck, then you will need a different remote to get rid of the function.
Try all buttons on your remote. If the Tamper Proof had been activated using this remote with this codes, then it can be turned off using the same remote.

Problem with our TV - Sharp VT-G14

Try pressing and HOLDING the button on the remote for a few seconds. This button is a sort of "kid-proof" lock, to prevent curious fingers from playing with the TV.

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 for about 52 bucks + shipping. Good Luck
