SHARP T.V. not responding to remote, but remote isn't broken

I know the remote isn't working because it lights up and also works on other sharp t.v.'s.  I also tried a universal remote and that didn't work.  The sensor on the front of the t.v. is probably broken what can I do?

    Toshiba 36" CRT TV is not responding to remote control.

    I know for sure that its not the Toshiba remote control that is broken because it works for other components. I also have tried numerous universal remote controls with no success.

    Is there a way to fix the remote reciever on the TV?

    It happened one hour ago. Mine is toshiba projection 52" TV. I replaced the batteries for two remote controls I've used for this TV but both don't turn on the unit while the console can turn on/off and control the tv properly. I suspect same thing about some kind of sensor but hopefully not. I'll leave the tv unplugged overnight and see.

    I had this problem with my Sharp TV/VCR combo. One minute it was working, the next it wasn't. After researching the problem, I printed out the remote profile and tasks. Right away I noticed the "TAMPER PROOF" button. Which, I had hit by mistake. Hit again, and remote is fine.

The same thing happened to my toshiba tv. The work around i figured out was to connect it to a combination dvd/vcr (or some other device with a tv tuner and a remote) and use that to change channels. as for sound, you can connect the tv to a stereo system and control with the remote for that device.

Other than that, I think the only other solution is to get a new tv!

I had the same problem and I really like my TV, it's not that old. Unfortunately it turns out there is not much you can do and definitely you can't do that by yourself (unless you are a super engineer or something), if you call a repair man it will be costly, so eventually it comes cheaper to buy a new TV than to fix this problem. I really hate it :-(

Same thing happened to my Sharp 29 inch. Stopped responding to original remote the first time, but a universal worked fine. Eventually it stopped responding too all universal remotes. The remotes are good, they work with my VCR, DVD player, and Receiver. It's a nice TV, but having to get up and adjust the volume every commercial break got old a few decades ago! If anyone has any other possible solutions aside from getting the sensor replaced...would be great to hear it.

I need a manual for a Sharp 19NV88BK television. The volume is stuck in the stereo mode, cannot lower it manually or with the remote. TV responds to remote except the volume.

Remove wall plug to the television.
Sit down, drink half cup of tea.
Put new batteries in the remote.
Drink other half cup of tea.
Put wall plug back in as all the power internally should be dissipated.
Try remote again.

Remote still not working? Clean buttons with wet cloth and dish liquid, turn remote upside down, wait 5 minutes. Clean buttons with damp clean cloth.

Sharp aquos remote not working

the polarity of the batteries in case the monkeyed with them.
Remove the batteries from the remote, unplug the Power to the TV, reinstall remote batteries taking care the polarity of the batteries in case the kids monkeyed with them and then plug the power cord back into the TV.
If that fails, take the remote to the store and and see if it works on their Sharp TV like yours. If that fails contact Sharp support for a replacement. (1.800.BE.SHARP)

Remote Stopped Working

It is possible the IR sensor is bad. Most of the time if it is a remote issue, the light on the remote will not light up. Does the remote that came with tv still control any functions? I would try the remote that came with the tv, and then go from there, but it sounds like your IR sensor has gone out on you.

Sharp lcd five yr old monitor wont turn on

If the button on the tv doesn't work, and the remote does, its a contact thats broken. If the remote and the button don't work, it can mean that the dead. The only real way to know if its really broken is to call you local, certified by Sharp, repairman to diagnose the problem.
