Question about Sylvania 202SL8 TV
I have a jumbo universal remote and my kids decided that pushing all the buttons at once would be fun. Now there are numbers all over the top and bottom of the screen, the menu button will not display anything and I cannot turn the tv off, I have to unplug it. Can you please help me with this?

I had the same problem with a Sylvania SRT2227S. I kept trying to fix it using the remote but after reading your posting I pressed the Volume (down) button, which cycled through the same menus you mentioned. Then I pressed the Power button on the TV and that fixed it.
The problem started for me when pressed PIP, CC, and Guide buttons on a Philips universal remote control. My TV does not support these functions and it seems to put it in this "service mode". Now I can fix it by pressing Volume (down) or Menu then the Power button on the TV (do not use the remote as it is useless when the TV is in this mode). I hope this works for you too.
