Who made Wards' Signature TVs?

    We recently acquired a Signature 2000 tv set without a remote control.
    I want to access the menu to turn on the closed captions (I'm hearing
    impaired).

    I tried an RCA "universal" remote control programmed to the Signature
    code and was able to change channels and even access the menu, but
    couldn't make changes in the menu settings.

    I thought that if I could find out who made the set I could try the
    code(s) for their sets.

    The model is JSJ12019 and the set was manufactured in May 1994.

    Any help on this will be greatly appreciated.

    LenS:
    SHARP made the television for Monkey Ward. In order to operate all of the
    remote controlled functions including Menu selections and functions you will
    be better off with the FACTORY remote.
    Call 1-800-REMOTES for price and availability.

    Can't you get to the menu from the front of the tv set itself?

    <Sigh>

    I just got around to trying this, and you're absolutely right. There's
    a button labeled "Settings" on the front of the set. This brings up
    the menu from which selections are made by use of the Vol + and Vol-
    buttons.

    Thanks!

  5. If memory serves me, Montgomery Ward had their TVs and even VCRs manufactured
    by Sharp. - Reinhart
