Sharp 32f540 switching input channels

Hi, our tv just started switching channels from input1 to input 2 and 125 on its own. We have checked all the connections, replaced batteries in the remote and unplugged the tv overnight. My question is this an easy and inexpensive fix?

the problem for your unit is the manual button switches. In the long time it wasnt used. it got stucked and somewhat rusted. This problem can best be addressed by replacing the buttons switches(tac switch).
this should solve your problem.

My tv has a audio but no video?

If your TV has features to put off the display either on the TV or on remote, change it. If not, check the input cable for any loose contacts. Try changing channel and see whether some channel is being shown. If it is shown, the problem is in the input cable connector. If you are using input from yellow, red, white RC cable through a desk top or some other device, the yellow cable might have come off while cleaning the TV or may not be tightly fit. In short, check all the inputs and let me know.

Hi, my RCA CRC311 BT turns on my Sharp television, changes the channels, etc, but it won't switch to video mode, even when I hit input. It is an old TV, but I used it to watch videos, dvds and play games...

Unfortunately you will not be able to switch input.
I also have a Sharp, I have tried 5 different universal remotes. None will switch input. I guess that function is not provided properly.
Good luck!

The problem was caused by ME not setting up my Harmony Remote correctly after buying the new TV. The remote was programmed to turn on SA8300>turn on Receiver>Turn on TV>Select channel 3.

Simple change from select channel 3 to select Input 4.

Sharp vcr problem

The way to connect them is as follows:
1. Connect the cable from the wall to the cable input on the cable box.
2. Connect the cable box RF output to VCR RF input (VCR must be on channel 3).
3. Connect the RF output from the VCR to the RF input on your TV (TV must be on channel 3).
After all the connections are done, leave the VCR and TV on channel 3 and use the cable box to select the channel you want to record programs from.
Good Luck.

I am trying to fix a Sharp 27k-s100 television.

Can you use the remote control to change the channels? If not, it may be that to need to reprogram the remote to work with your TV. I just had the same problem. I have GE universal remote and have reprogrammed it to work with my SHARP 27k-s100 TV by following these instructions: The code that worked for my TV is 173. Other codes listed for SHARP are: 004, 006, 012, 029, 095, 111, 112, 113, 122, 171. Good luck!

Sharp tv changing channels

Well, the only thing that seems to be working so far is to plug AV cables into the "input 2" ports (on the front of TV). I plugged in my PS2, without turning it on. It has not switched at random since (about 30 minutes - it had been switching off and on for the past 2 hours). Anyone else have similar success?
