Customer Question
My Sharp T.V. remote...

My Sharp T.V. remote does not turn my flat screen T.V. on. I have changed the AA batteries, which did not correct the problem. We are on U-Verse, however, the other T.Vs. work fine. Is it possible that the remote needs to be changed and if so how do I proceed in purchasing one.

Technician's Assistant: The Expert will know what to do. Is there anything else important you think the Expert should know?

No, at this time this is the only concern, I wish to add that the flat-scree is a 30 inch model purchased within the past five years.

Can you turn on the tv with the buttons on the tv itself? or the original remote that came with the tv?
