Your set is probably old enough to have a code set on most "universal" remotes.
I don't know in which country you reside but remotes for under $10 US are available from nearly any major store such as Walmart or Target and I suspect at equivalent stores elsewhere.

Sanyo AVM-3259S TV is stuck on video2 remote is lost. How do change video input? Right now I can only play video games on it.


As the TV has no menu button on its front panel, you must have its remote control to select inputs.

Trying to connect a Sega Genesis. I know it's connected properly to the place where the cable wire goes and then that is connected to the connector. What channel do I go to to play the games?


Hi,

The input from the Sega wont be on any channel number - you need to select the correct input for the Sega using the "INPUT SELECT" button on the Symphonic remote control supplied with the TV. Switch on the TV the Sega, then press this button repeatedly until you can see the picture from the Sega.

- If you are using the sockets on the BACK of the TV, the correct input is "VIDEO 1"
- If you are using the sockets on the FRONT of the TV, the correct input is "VIDEO 2". You can also switch to the "VIDEO 2" input by pressing the "GAME" button on the Symphonic remote - if you still have it.

If you don't have the Symphonic remote, look for a button marked "INPUT" or "SOURCE" if you are using a universal remote.

If you don't have any remote for the TV, you will only be able to use the sockets on the front of the TV. You will then need to switch to "GAME MODE" by using the buttons on the front of the TV:

1. Switch ON the TV and the Sega;
2. Press the MENU button;
3. Press the VOLUME UP button to open the PICTURE MENU;
4. Highlight GAME MODE using the CHANNEL UP/DOWN buttons;
5. Set GAME MODE to "ON" using the VOLUME UP/DOWN buttons;
6. Press MENU again to close the menu

You should now be able to see the picture from the Sega. If not, check you have correctly connected the Sega to the TV. When you have finished using the Sega you will need to use the method above to switch game mode off again.

Hopefully, I've covered every possible angle. If you have a different Symphonic TV model from the one listed above (ST420FF), the method should be similar, but if you have any difficulty, please post back for further assistance.

BElectric.

I lost the converter and now i cant get my tv to switch settings to game is there any way to do it without the converter?


If you mean you lost your RF converter, which enables you to connect your game to the antenna input, you can connect your game to the connectors on the front of your TV to video 2 input with a Video and Audio cables. After that select video input 2 from your remote controller or TV buttons. You can also connect it to video input 1 at the back of the TV.

My son has a TMNT tv and the remote is broken or just the button to turn it to the games. I bought a universal remote and it does work some so that he can play his games but it doesn't let him enter two digit channels to change them so he has to scroll through them to get where he wants. It is an RCA - RCR312W remote and is universal but I had to go through the steps for the auto code search which was a little confusing and took a little while. The remote only cost about 8.00. All of the features don't work and I am sure that with a little playing around I could figure out the brand from the code but I haven't yet. Hope that this helps and if anyone else has a better solution please let me know.
Thanks!

Where did you find it? what site & can you give the part# of thee remote, so that I can do the same?


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.
