Customer Question
receive signal from the remote...
I have a 10 year old 50" Sharp Aquos that can no longer receive signal from the remote (tried 3 different remotes). Is there possibly some sort of factory reset that I could do that might restore this or is it a lost cause?? Thanx

I love this site! $9 instead of a repairman or new/used frig can't be beaten. This older woman will worry less now that she knows about this site. Bless you all.
