    try unplugging? (after unplugging, wait at least one hour). Also, what
    is the feature called? Also, what model is it? Please let me know, nvic

    I tested other ways of removing the child lock from sharp VCRs. The
    four zeros, i also was able to get it to un set via unplugging.
    sometimes, you can't remove the child lock with these methods. Is the
    child lock called "Tamper Proof" and is there a key symbol in the
    display? If so, check the manual for this info (troubleshooting
    section). Please let me know, nvic

    My Sharp VCR unlocks when the play button is kept depressed for 5
    or more seconds :)

    Is that on the VCR or the remote?

    Sorry. I have to correct my earlier reply.
    I went to test your question and found out, that my Sharp does
    not unlock on '5 seconds play'. (Akai will though :)

    Sharp has a 'key'-key on the remote control only.
    The manual says, that pulling the mains plug for an hour or two
    will reset the child lock.

    On one old set (can not remember the make, model) I removed the back up
    battery


    Once I even took out the EEPROM and saved it to computer file, cleared it,
    then put the EEPROM back, I think from memory it worked.
