Ah, the old universal remote isn't so universal anymore is it? Most "universal" remote controls were designed for the old tube type television sets. There are some seriously nice universal remotes for new flat screen TV's, but most of them are pretty pricey. The only reasonable flat screen universal remote that I've found (that actually works) is the Vizio HDTV Universal Remote. It's about $25, and believe it or not ... Wal-Mart carries it in the store.
I assume you have tried codes 013, 014, 015 and 070 for Sharp TV. See codes here: http://www.revoxremotes.com/Remotes/Sony_RM-V310.htm It can be very frustrating using these inexpensive universal remotes, sometimes you just have to get lucky with a code, just keep trying other codes, Zenith TV, Magnavox TV. You might happen on the one that works. Also, try another brand of universal remote, Wal-Mart has them for $10.
Most univ remotes provide a method of scanning codes. Example: You set the TV on, select TV on the remote, put it into code scan mode, scan TV codes 1 at a time and when the TV turns off, store the code. This should be in the remote's manual.
Hope that helps...
