If it has a "help" or "Custom Help" pad, the Child Lock may be on. If so, press the Help button and look through the options, if any.

Otherwise, it may need a hard reset. Unplug the oven for a couple of minutes, then see if you can set the clock.

On most Sharps, the sequence is:

Clock > 2 > 3 > 0 > Clock
or
Clock > 2 > 3 > 0 > Start

You may be able to download your owner's manual from Sharp's site.

If it still won't work, you probably have a shorted keypad.

There are two different ways to lock the control panel:

How do I unlock the control panel


If this is a GE Advantium series microwave, the control panel can be locked to prevent children from manipulating the controls. To lock or unlock, press and hold the CLEAR/OFF button for 5 seconds. These instructions are included on page 36 of the owner's manual listed here:

How do I unlock the key pad? The display shows locked and I don't know how it locked.


Here you go.

The Child Lock shuts down the control panel pads to prevent
unintended use of the microwave oven.
When the control is locked, only the Vent Fan and Light pads will
function.
To Lock/Unlock Control: The microwave oven and Timer must
be off. Touch and hold START for 5 seconds until 2 tones sound
and a lock icon appears on the display. Repeat to unlock and
remove the lock icon from display.

The Display on my microwave says "LOCKED"


The control lock shuts down the control panel pads to avoid unintended use of the microwave oven. To unlock/lock control, the microwave must be in standby mode, touch and hold stop/clear for 3 seconds until one long tone sounds and the display clears to show an outline if the display area. Repeat to unlock control, and return display to the time of day, if any pad is touched while the control is locked, there will be no response from the microwave oven. hope this helps.
