    I have a Sharp color TV model 13K m100 but no remote. "universal
    remotes" won't get me into the menu. As I want to reprogram the channels
    I get going up and down and to change it from cable to off air. Are
    there any internal jumpers I can jump to access the menu? Or is there a
    way to fake the proper remote say by using the RS232 port on my PC to
    drive an IR LED and a program that causes it to produce the correct
    on/off sequence of pulses to make the TV think it's seeing the proper
    remote (looked all over the web but didn't find this)? Sure I can buy
    the proper remote on ebay, but for $60?...

    If you want to play McGuyver that's up to you but, if you'll go to
    Walwart and pick up the One for All 4 in one remote, use code 0093,
    I'll gurantee it'll work or you have a bad remote sensor or didn't
    program it right. I use one in my shop to check repaired units and I
    know that one will work fine.
