Do you have the model number of your TV?

August 21, 2005 1:42 PM

Where can i find the model number?

Find your manual on this page:
Sharp TV Manuals

The instructions for resetting your password are on page 21.

I went there and i didnt understand how to do it.

These are the instructions that I gathered:

Press MENU to access MAIN MENU screen.

Press CH UP (8) or DOWN (9) to move the '*' mark to 'PARENT CONTROL'.

Press VOL '+' or '??' to access PARENT CONTROL mode, then press VOL '+' or '??' to access V-CHIP select mode.

Press and hold both VOL (+) and CH DOWN (9) on the TV set simultaneously until the message 'INPUT SECRET No.' disappears.

Press MENU two times to exit.

Follow the instructions as shown, but make sure you hold down the VOL+ and CH DOWN buttons on the TV, not the remote control.

I go through the menu and do all that when the Input Secret No. comes up i hold the CH down and VOL + button and then it disapears but channals are still blocked.

Not sure what else you can do but call Sharp's customer support and see if they will help you.

A long shot might be to hit the 'reset' option on the video menu. It's supposed to just set the video controls to the factory defaults, but maybe it might reset the V-Chip too. Worth a shot anyway.
