I have the opposite problem. I don't have the remote, it broke, and I'm stuck on channels when I want to play a game. How do I fix that without the remote?!

That was very helpful- It worked like magic, I was getting really angry because we tried everything else....even unplugging the TV for awhile hoping it would just reset itself but it wouldn't every time I turned it on it said GAME--i wanted to scream. Thank You So much

How to get universal remote to turn the tv to game mode


Hi,

I don't know if this can be done with a universal remote, but if you can let me know which brand and model of universal remote you are using, I will check if it is possible. If your universal remote has an "AV", "SOURCE" or "INPUT" button, try these but make sure the game system is switched on so you are able to see if/when you have changed to the correct mode.

If you don't have the original Symphonic remote, you should be able to switch the TV to game mode using the buttons on the front of the TV as follows:

1. Switch the game system on
2. Press the "MENU" button on the front of the TV
3. Highlight "PICTURE" using the CHANNEL UP/DOWN buttons
4. Press the VOLUME UP button once to enter the PICTURE menu
5. Highlight "GAME MODE" using the CHANNEL UP/DOWN buttons
6. Use the VOLUME UP/DOWN buttons to set "GAME MODE" to "ON"
7. Press "MENU" to exit the menu and play games.

The menu should automatically close anyway if you don't press any buttons for about 15 seconds.

When you have finished playing your game, repeat the above steps to set "GAME MODE" back to "OFF" and return to watching TV.

Hope this helps. Please post back for further assistance if needed.

Regards,
BElectric.

Remote doesn't work


Sorry Sarge...this problem is not that simple...and for some reason these Sylvania tv's won't allow you to access game mode that easy. I think the best idea (assuming the universal remote doesn't work out)...just buy another ORIGIANL remote from the manufacturer! Hooowah!

I can not switch to game mode to play dvd player without original remote


A Philips Universal remote model CL032 will operate all functions on the Durabrand TV. The codes on the instruction sheet will not work. You will have to do a library search on the remote. You will have to push the channel plus button 40 times. This will make since after youread the instructions.

System shuts off and turns to red light standby


Hello. You may want to double check your connections and cables. The only time I've ever heard a clicking before a system shut it's self down was when a kid had stuck the battery cover from a TV remote into the disc drive.
Also, if the PS3 keeps acting like that, Sony will repair/replace the unit for free including shipping since it's under a year old. Thanks and good luck!

Lost Remote


I got mine off of game mode by using a universal remote. I had to type in a channel, (03) and it got it out of game mode, but I now have the problem of not being able to get it back into game mode so that I can use my DVD player. Good luck

My tv remote stopped working


Try using words to form sentences next time.
Don't lose the remote; tie a scarf on it with a key-finder in it and a pesto or frosting saran pack in the battery compartment if you have to.  You do.
Because now, you get to go buy a universal remote and program it, or use a universal remote program on a PalmPilot, cellphone, or IrDA-equipped PC.

Alternately, you could take advantage of any automatic input priorities the TV set has which are compatible with your game cabling.
