I have a Sharp TV model 27F-S40 and also do not have the remote. I need to access the menu to change color, sound, etc.
Can I access the menu thru the channel or volume buttons on the face of the tv?

If this line does not go all the way across the screen then I will bet you this is an easy fix. Press the menu button on the remote control. The menu will hopefully show up over-top the black. Search your menu for the closed caption setting (usually under audio settings menu) and turn closed caption OFF. Hopefully this fixes your issue. Cheers.
On the front of the TV you should be able to press both channel up and down at the same time and it will give you access to the TV menu. Once in the menu use the channel and volume up and down buttons to navigate.
You don't. A good "universal remote" available from Radio Shack (Phillips) for about $15 will provide access to all TV adjustments. Easy to program for all TV models, VCR's, DVD players, etc. About $35 + S&H for the Sharp remote replacement.
Brightness settings on any TV made since the early to mid 90's (besides tiny cheap B&W TVs) will have the settings in an on-screen menu. Sometimes the menu is accessible through buttons on the TV itself, but always accessible through the remote control. If your TV does not have the ability to get to the settings menu from the TV controls itself, you will need the original (or compatible) remote control for the set, there is no other option.
It could also be that the set is just dying; it's an older set, and certainly would be a possibility.
1get the original remote control
2get a universal remote control and maybe you can get menu from there.
3get menu on front panel of the tv and search for the option.
4send the tv to autoprogram. Good luck!
The manual can be found near the bottom of the Product page for this TV.
From the manual, pg 11 -
If you misplaced your Remote Control you can still access most settingsvia the MAIN MENU screen when you press both CH UP (8) andDOWN (9)on the TV set.•Some features of your TV Set will not be accessible without the RemoteControl. If you lost your Remote Control, contact a Sharp AuthorizedServicer by calling 1-800-BE-SHARP for a replacement.
