    Changing the batteries does not unlock the key on the recorder.

  • danisue Jan 13, 2008

    the key is on the vcr and it flashes if I touch any of the keys but wont do anything about unlocking the vcr

  • danisue Jan 13, 2008

    Its a sharp vcr thats why I am using a sharp remote and why I think I hit a button with the tv remote by accident..

  • danisue Jan 13, 2008

    that didnt work

  • danisue Jan 13, 2008

    now the key button just keeps flashing and doesnt stop

  • danisue Jan 13, 2008

    yes I unplugged both the tv and the vcr from the wall, the key just keeps flashing

  • danisue Jan 13, 2008

    the key stopped flashing but is not unlocked, right under the key is epvcr does that help?

  • danisue Jan 13, 2008

    did you leave? I dont see an answer?

  • danisue Jan 13, 2008

    I have the key light on my remote, and the remote control wont do anything cept flash if I hit the buttons. The movie was playing and all was well, I think I hit something on the remote but cant figure it out. I tried everything the wiz says to try but to no avail, under the key on the box is epvic light with a large arrow facing the right..

  • danisue Jan 14, 2008

    i have unplugged everything then plugged it back again.. the vcr is where the key is and that is what is locked or apparently since it wont do anything? I cant even eject the movie

  • danisue Jan 14, 2008

    that last comment was not even worth saying, why would I want to get a universal when this is the orginal and has been working just fine.

  • danisue Jan 14, 2008

    Ok no reset buttons, its an older set and the tv is older also. no it doesnt power off, and no switches in the back. Yes thats the whole story, thanks for reading it.

  • danisue Jan 14, 2008

    oops sorry I dont have a different remote to use that will work with this vcr.

Is the VCR or the Remote flashing
Unplug the VCR wait a couple minute and plug it back in.
Take the batteries out of the remote and put good ones back in.

If that did not solve it, it's better to get a universal remote.

    Well, sorry if that did not help at all.



    So my understanding is; the Key Button on your Remote flashes and the VCR buttons do not work when you press buttons on your Remote or VCR and you have no way of getting the movie out because the buttons simply do not function and you unplugged the VCR and changed the batteries in the Remote.

    Is that the whole story ?



    Have you tried using a different remote ?

    does the unit power off after a while ?

    is there any switch on the back ?



    Try looking for switches that you can't instantly see, like reset buttons and such.



    Hope that helped a bit.

    Does the screen show anything while the remote just flashes ?



    Please check the model # of both your remote and vcr, meanwhile I will try to find a solution.

    You can reset most Sharp VCR's by pressing "Stop" + "Up", hold them for 3 seconds then release "Up" and release "Stop" 3 seconds later than that.



    Another thing that might work is unplug it and leave it for an hour +.



    Check the back for a small hole that looks suspicious, this might be the reset button, press it with a paperclip.



    Do you have a Tamper Proof button on your remote ?, if so press and hold this for 5 seconds.



    Reset your Remote by taking the batteries out and holding On/Off for 25 seconds.





    Well That's all I hope it worked, sorry if it didn't.



    Good luck.



    Otherwise try contacting Sharp at 905-890-2100.

    Ok, you didn't mention anything about that before. What kind of key are you referring to? Is is on the remote? Dvd player? TV?

  • Peter Burns Jan 13, 2008

    Ok, what is the make/model of the vcr?

  • Peter Burns Jan 13, 2008

    Press and hold the "TAMPER PROOF" button on the remote for at least 3 seconds. The "TAMPER PROOF" indicator on the front panel will flash and then go away.

    Now it should be disengaged.

  • Peter Burns Jan 13, 2008

    Did "TAMPER PROOF" Flash?

    Did you try unplugging from the wall?

  • Peter Burns Jan 14, 2008

    Here is the manual for your TV.

    http://www.usersmanualguide.com/sharp/te...


    It is the Sharp 13VT-R100 correct?

    If you go to page 18 of the manual it is describing the "tamper proof" function. It sounds like to me that is the problem you are having. Is that correct?

Purchased the DP300 at the Goodwill. The DVD has the remote control;however, I do not know how to use the remote control. I used the red, yellow, and white connector to my the DVD player and to the TV but...


with regard to using the remote control :

Make sure the batteries in the remote are working (they go in the back of the remote at the bottom).

Turn on the DVD player with the power button on the DP300 itself (lower left). Open the dvd tray either with the remote (press open/close button, upper right) or with the button on the DP300. Put a DVD in the tray and close it with the remote or the button on the DP300. The DVD should load.

Use the arrow buttons in the centre of the remote to select choices from the onscreen menu of the DVD. Press Play (centre of the 4 arrow buttons) to activate the choice you want. For example, if you want to play a movie, use the arrow buttons to go up or down until "play movie" is selected, then hit PLAY, and movie will play. If you want to choose a scene/chapter of the movie, use arrow buttons to go up or down until Scene Selection or Chapter is selected (highlighted), and press PLAY. This should bring up a list of the scenes or chapters. Use the arrow buttons to select the one you want, then hit PLAY, and that scene should play.

If the DVD tray is taking less than 20 seconds to operate, there is likely no problem. If it is taking more, there may be. I think the mechanism that opens and closes the tray is often the first thing to stop working on DVD and CD players.

My dvd remote does not work when i try to start movies


Greetings! Does your TV front panel works? If so, the problem lies surely on the remote control portion. But make sure first that the RC unit batteries are new ones. Turn on any portable FM radio receiver and point the RC unit near its antenna. Turning the dial knob very slowly, press any remote control keypads permanently. The moment you hear an oscillating sound from the receiver speaker, stop turning the dial and start to play with the RC unit keypads to find out if there is any sound changes, that means your remote control unit is emitting an infrared signal and its a healthy sign.! Then the defect is on your TV's remote receiver section, mechanically i. e. cold solder or electrically (defective components). Good luck!

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!

CAN'T GET IT TO PLAY BLURAY MOVIES IT PLAYS DVD MOVIES GREAT.


Check your firmware version by turning on the blu ray player with no disc inside. Press the setup button on the remote control and choose settings. Choose version. You should have Version HU9071500. If you do not you will need to perform a firmware update. If you have the current version your drive might be bad and the unit would need to be repaired or replaced.

No firmware is available yet. In the meantime follow these directions for a possible work around...

You need to force the player to the the Top Menu of the disc.
The way to do this is: load disc, wait until it says "Reading Completed" (about 1 minute).

Wait for the PLAY icon ">" to show in the upper right corner (this may take up to 30-40 secs).

Once you see the ">" Hit the STOP button on the remote to get to the player's splash screen.

From the Sharp splash screen Hit the "Top Menu/Title List" button on the remote and wait for the circulating dots and then the disc menu appears.
Play the movie from the menu and you should be good to go.
