TV will not come on

The red light is on, but the remote will not turn on the TV. I replaced the batteries in the remote, nothing. I unplugged the TV and plugged it back in again, nothing. Help.

    I can't turn the tv on using the remote or manually. I have tried unplugging and replugging the tv back in. The red light goes from being solid to blinking when I push the power button. Help! This TV is only 6 months old.

I called the manufacturer and they said I could send it back to be repaired or replaced. It costs $45 if its after 120 days on the receipt (they extended it another 30 days) or no cost if within the 90 (120) day period. He said there is a 1 yr warrenty on the fixed or replaced on as well. Here's the phone number 1-888-252-6252! I hope this helps someone!

(I got this number after calling target's manufacturer hotline that they give u in the store when they tell you they wont take it back)

If you have a camera cell phone and can look at the remote with the phone while pushing a button on the remote you should see the infrared led blink on the screen of the phone which is not visible other wise
however, not all cell phones work with this trick. this is how I found out my remote was not working I have a lg cell phone good luck

Go to turn on tv and all I get is flashing red light and tv won't turn on. Was working the other day.what do I check?Sharp LC-26GA5U


Hi,

Try unplugging the TV from the power point and leave unplugged for 5 min.
Or the batteries in the remote may be flat, try replacing the batteries.
If this doesn't work the TV may have a fault.

I hope this helps

Remote control (UBRC-120) will not work the unit.


I had the same problem. resolved it by the following......
1. Press and hold the TV button until the red LED turns on and stays on.
2. enter 00000, the red LED will flash and turn off
3. test remote
This procedure should put the remote settings in default for TV.

if all goes well remote should operate the TV
