Question about Sharp 32C-530 32" TV

1 Answer

Menu Access My Sharp TV remote will happily scroll through channels, adjust the volume, switch it on and off and bring up teletext, but it steadfastly refuses to open the Menu screen. I can't access colour or contrast, tuning set-up or screen resolution (this one I desperately need to do as well). It's a good TV in really good condition and I don't want to have to ditch it because of this silly problem. When I push Menu on the remote, the receiving light on the TV flickers, so the signal is definitely being sent. Is there any other way into the Menu or an easy way to fix this? Thanks.

Most sets have a menu button on the front, although it is sometimes hidden behind a small panel. Look for that & check your owner's manual. There may also be a master reset, which is usually a small hole that requires a pencil point to activate. These are always marked, but are very small. Some sets have them 7 some don't. You can also try unplugging the set for 1/2 hour, & then try again with the remote. If all this fails, you will most likely need a qualified service person to look into the problem, as there are no user serviceable parts inside, but lots of hazardous voltages.

Usually the menu can be accessed from the buttons on the console, sometimes by pressing a "menu" button but other times by pressing both Volume or Channel (+ AND -, UP AND DOWN) buttons simultaneously. Menu levels are usually selected with one or the other of Volume or Channel, and toggles/selections with whichever doesn't do the levels.
