I don't have the exact model number of my Sylvania 13" TV with me here at work and I think it's a different model number than this one, but the TV looks very much the same as the one pictured. I lost the remote and need to get my TV into "game mode." I have tried and tried and can't figure out how to do it. I bought an RCA Universal Remote and I can't do it with that either. Please help me!

You haven't described anything about the model number of GE remote. Eventhough it is universal remote, it will have a model number. Model number is necessary for us to give you correct codes. I hereby give you code for Sylvania combo. Check it with.
The code for Sylvania TV/DVD combo with GE RM 24912 universal remote is:
Check this code  with your present GE remote. Sometimes it may match. OK.
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!
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.
Some have a tv or vcr mode, some have a game button,, or go to setup and just go through all the options,, sometimes ull find it ,,, up down channel and vol.. up and down,, just keep hittin buttons u might connect with it...they are all different....specially universals,,, do u have the right #s for the universal in it? shut it all down and try it again..??? sry if im wrong just tryin to help.. Ill look for more if u have no luck if u want....
go up to your TV and go into the menu. Go to the channel selection and run the auto select for channels. This will take some time but the TV will end off the first channel found, the only thing is you cannot get back into video mode without the remote
