**if this isnt the right place for this question let me know and I will move it*

my grandpa has this really little tv he wants to play vhs's on. It used to work and now he wants it to work again. The tv is stuck on channel 2 and it needs to be on channel 3 i think. The only problem is, there is no way on the tv to change the channels it has to be done on the remote. We have the remote he used (or so we assume its the one cause it was with the tv) but it doesn't seem to be picking it up. We replaced the batteries so it can't be that either. I have a picture of the back of the tv with the details and I have a picture of the remote I will add them here. Any help would be appreciated.

On a side note the vhs player remote doesnt seem to be working either idk why!

Assuming first of all that you have good batteries, and that you don't have any white or crusty oxidation on the battery contacts in the remote…

You could have a bad remote, or you could have a bad remote sensor in the Sharp TV. Some cell phones, when you put them in the camera mode, will see infrared light when you point and shoot at the camera. This might tell you if the remote is putting out infrared.
There is no truth anymore. Only assertions. The internet world has no interest in truth, only vindication for preconceived assumptions.
