I could not find an owner's manual online, so you get a generic answer. Look for an "Input" button among the TV's controls. If you don't find one, go to the TV's lowest channel number (in US TV sets, that's Channel 2). Press the Down Channel button once more. That may take you to the external video input, which I assume is what you want for "game mode."
You need the remote to change to game mode. The original remote doesn't appear to be available. A substitute remote with the function is here: http://www.remotes.com/remotes/servlet/rs?a=Search&o=c&uid=0&m=DWT2405&uuid=12931247714820 . The Game button switches to and from game mode. Other universal remotes may work but a source or input button is needed. Then try various codes for either Durabrand or Funai TVs (Funai built the TV). The other issue is that the remote needs to have been programmed at least 6 months after the TV was released. The remotes that are programmed via a USB connection to a computer will definately be able to match the function.
Follow the steps below to switch your TV to game mode without using the remote:
1. Connect the game system to the TV using the AUDIO/VIDEO inputs on the FRONT of the TV.
2. Switch the game system on.
3. Press the "MENU" button on the front of the TV
4. Use the "CH" UP/DOWN buttons on the TV to highlight the "PICTURE" option. This is the first option so should already be highlighted.
5. Press the "VOL UP" button to select this option
6. Use the "CH" UP/DOWN buttons on the TV to highlight the "GAME MODE" option. This is the first option so should already be highlighted.
7. Press the "VOL UP" button to change the GAME MODE setting to "ON"
The TV should automatically switch to GAME MODE if you are using the inputs on the front of the TV.
8. Press "MENU" to exit and play your games.
Hope this helps. Please post back if you need further assistance.
You can set the Game mode and External input mode at the same time by pressing the GAME button on the remote control. "GAME" appears on the TV screen. To exit the the Game mode and the external input mode, press the GAME button on the remote control again. To cancel GAME mode only, adjust the PICTURE control. The game mode will be set ot 'OFF" automatically. In this case "VIDEO" instead of "GAME" appeares on the TV screen. When you press the GAME button if the TV is off, the TV turns ON and will be in the GAME mode and external input mode automatically.
[USING THE GAME BUTTON] You may also set the Game mode and external input mode at the same time by pressing the GAME button on the remote control. “GAME” appears on the TV screen. ● To exit the Game mode and external input mode, press the GAME button on the remote control again. ● To cancel the Game mode only, adjust the picture control. The Game mode will be set to [OFF] automatically as explained in the previous section. In this case, “VIDEO”(external input mode) instead of “GAME” appears on the TV screen. ● When you press the GAME button if the TV is off, the TV turns on and will be in the Game mode and external input mode automatically.
I had this problem on a symphonic 27 inch TV I just bought from a friend
who no longer had a remote. The thing with the menu and buttons on the
front of the TV doesn't actually change the TV to true game mode. I
don't know what it acutally does, but it isn't really in game mode.
When it is in true "game mode" you can't change the channels until you turn game mode off. What I did was bought a universal remote (a specific one that someone
told me about) for 8 bucks at walmart and I was then able to switch to
game mode with the Input select on the remote. The remote I bought that
actually worked is this one: http://www.amazon.com/Philips-Magnavox-PM435S-4-Device-Universal/dp/B00006686A/ref=acc_glance_ce_ai_-2_1_tit/002-3174824-8273629 Make
sure you look at it before you buy it and make sure it has a button
that specifically says "input" on it. I know that some of the universal
remotes don't have an input select button or one that doesn't work. As
long as you get a Philips-Magnavox that has that button, you should be
ok. Much better solution that paying 30 bucks for a new remote
specifically for the TV. Hope this helps.
not familiar with this model
but ill try
try in the menu puting it on game mode
then look for external input mode in the menu and turn it too
fix ur remote or bye a new one (be sure that the new remote will activate the game option)
