    I tried the input button but it doesn't turn off the tamper proof. I also have a new remote but with the TVbeing locked it won't let me set it up with the codes.

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.

    The tamper proof is a lock prevent meant to prevent the accidental change of the operation mode.



    To enter in service mode you will still need the original remote or a programmed service remote.

    Try contacting Sharp and see if they can override the tamper proof mode.

Remote control for Sharp TV


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.

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 http://www.remotes.com for about 52 bucks + shipping. Good Luck
