Question about Symphonic ST419E TV
I have it on game mode & the a/v cables are hooked up, still I can't play anything. Switched to Ch. 3, but no dice there either. I would appreciate the help.
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 the "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.
