    Kim, I am sorry you expected me to be on the computer constantly. It does not work that way. I cannot be online 24/7. I must sleep, but hopefully this is the answer you are looking for.
    As you say there is no code search key. They are referring to the component key. Here is how to use code search.
    1. Manually turn on the component you want the remote to control (TV, VCR, DVD, satellite receiver or cable box).
    Note: If you press an invalid key during the Manual Code Search, the remote does not respond and the LED indicator light does not blink. If you do not press a valid Manual Code Search key (TV, VCR, DVD, SAT·CBL, ON·OFF, GO BACK), the search times out after two minutes. When the search times out, the LED indicator light blinks four
    times and turns off. The last programmed code under that component key is retained.

    2. Press and hold the component key (TV, VCR, DVD, SAT·CBL) you wish to program. The LED indicator light turns on and remains on.
    3. While holding the component key down, press and hold the ON:OFF key.The LED indicator light turns off.
    4. After holding down both keys for three seconds, the LED indicator light turns back on. LED
    5. Release both keys. The LED indicator light remains on.
    Tip: Throughout the programming of each key, be sure to keep the remote pointed at the IR sensor of the component you are currently programming the remote to control.
    6. Press and release the ON·OFF key repeatedly until your component turns off. Each time you press the ON·OFF key, the LED indicator light blinks, and the next code in the list is sent. This process
    continues until all of the codes in the Code Lists have been searched. If your component turns off, you have found the correct code. (If it cycles through and the LED indicator light blinks four times and turns off, all codes have been searched. The Manual Code Search method is exited.)
    7. Once you have found the correct code, you must save the new code by pressing and releasing the STOP key. The LED indicator light turns off. You must press the STOP key to save the code or the correct code will not be stored!
    8. Once you press the STOP key, the code is stored.

I have a rca remote and my tv is made by share

Is your RCA remote a universal remote? Do you know the model number of the remote, usually found inside the battery cover?
You can usually find the codes from:
FIND your model number, GOTO Support & Service Manuals, THEN select CODE LIST.
If it is a universal remote, you can program it to do BASIC functions for your Sharp TV, like power on/off, mute, channel & volume up/down, pretty much it. You wont be able to access any of the menu functions.
