Unless the TV has a front-panel menu button and allows you to switch modes from there, you are out of luck. There are two possibilities. One is to try another replacement remote. If you get a universal remote made by the TV manufacturer (Magnavox), it may have buttons that will work. The other option is to purchase an RF converter, which will cost around $15. This will take the video/audio signals from the game and convert it to a channel 3 or 4 signal you can then tune in on the TV. The picture won't be quite as bright and clear as with direct AV input, but it will do the trick.

I'm not able to put the tv in video mode to watch dvd's and I do not have a remote control for the tv.

Hi, well ALL TV's can be controlled from the Buttons ON the actual TV itself, look carefully on the TV, you will find a set of buttons, usually about 7. They should be marked, ON/OFF, CH UP, DOWN, MENU, ENTER/OK/SELECT, VOL UP/DOWN. Now Multiple presses will access differing features on the set, usually after pressing the ON/OFF button, you press the menu button and select your Input, Tuner, external, etc, once set, you Change the channel with the UP/DOWN key, and the Volume with the -,+ Key.

It's all in the user manual in the download link below.

I Need the remote code for universial remote to operate my tv.

Remote codes are part of the universal remote, not the TV. Try the Sylvania codes in the manual with the remote. If the code is not there, the REMOTE does not have the instructions to run the TV.

Lost original remote. Can't access game mode.

Press the Video or AV button on the TV itself. Otherwise, may need to scroll down past Channels 0, to get Video or L1.
