My Sharp Aquos TV has stopped responding to remote control(s)

Ive had my Sharp Aquos for about ten days. Yesterday, I tried to turn the TV on using the remote control that came with it (batteries are fine) and found that the TV simply isnt responding to the remote control. I tried using my cable remote (Scientific Atlanta HD box), which was programmed to be able to control the TV and had been working fine, and turned out that the TV was also no longer responding to the cable remote (the cable remote is still able to control the cable...e.g., change cable channels, pull up the guide, and everything else). I tried turning down the backlight, and still no effect. Can someone please help?

Unplugging my TV for 15 seconds (longer actually - at least a minute) made the remote and the satellite TV remote both work again with the TV.  Thanks for the tip!

My Sharp tv remote will not turn on / off tv. It will turn on by the main power switch on tv but not by remote.


From page 8 of the manual:

The POWER indicator on the AQUOS television should light GREEN indicating you have power to the AQUOS television.

If the POWER indicator on the AQUOS television still does not light up, press TV POWER on the remote control to turn the power on.

IMPORTANT:
IF THE UNIT DOES NOT POWER ON - UNPLUG THE AQUOS TELEVISION FROM THE OUTLET AND REPEAT THE INSTALLATION STEPS.

IF YOU STILL ENCOUNTER NO POWER, PLEASE CONTACT US AT 1-800-BE-SHARP

I had the same issue with my Sharp Aquos 52 inch LCD TV. I called Sharp. The tech had me unplug my TV, take the batteries out of the remote (TV remote not cable) and press all buttons on the remote (including the buttons under the flip top at the bottom of the remote). I did this, put the batteries back in and plugged in the tv and everything worked. I had gone 4 months having to use the surround sound for volume and turning the TV on and off by hand. This took 2 minutes to fix.

Are you using a remote from a cable issued cablebox or the orginal remote? I noticed my cable company DVR remote stopped working when the OPC setting on the Picture menu of the TV was set to the 'ON' position. Once turned to the 'OFF' position it stopped the OPC feature from activating which seemed to interfere with the response of the remote for some reason.

LC-32d40U Sharp Aquos Screen shows "please wait" controls do not respond


Hi.

Im not familiar with your TV set as it is made for USA but here in the UK some sharp models suffer with similar problem & this is the remedy.
As I said I cant gtee it will sort your problem but give it A try.
  1. Unplug the AC power cord of TV set to force power off.
  2. While holding down the “VOL (–)” and “INPUT” keys on the set at once, plug in the AC power cord to turn on the set. This should hopefully clear the problem.

Sharp remote control not working


Ok, looks like this TV works on MS Windows. Anyone who has had a computer 5 years back knows that when Windows has a problem, there is only one sure-shot solution.

SHUT IT DOWN, START IT UP !

Try this with your TV. Completely unplug it and leave for one minute. Start again. Voila ! Remote works flawlessly.

Remote Control Problem


take the batteries out of the Sharp remote press and hold the POWER button on the top of the remote for 5 seconds. Put batteries back in. Make sure that function is set to TV. Should work - if not call Sharp. If you are inside the original manufacturer warranty they will replace remote
