We got a new TV at an estate sale unfortunantly it came with no remote.
We have a universal remote but none of it's programmed codes worked for it.
The TV is a Sylvania model SRT2027 . I'd rather not have to buy the thirty dollar replacement remote since I only need it so I can hit the TV/Video button and play some PS2 :)
Anybody have any advice (besides to not buy old used tv's...)?
Two things I'd try:
1) Call Sylvania and ask for a programming code specific to your TV
2) Call the maker of your universal remote is Sylvania doesn't offer assistance.

The original remote had a GAME button that switched to the external video input. However, this can also be done in the menu of the TV.
Use the same steps to set GAME to OFF to watch OTA TV.
With many universal remotes there is also an option to have it scan all the codes to try and find one that works. Check the owners manual (if you still have it) for the universal remote or let us know what the make and model is - we might be able to track down if this is possible for you.
I've had a couple of pieces of equipment in the past that I have had to do this with. Not all the functions always come through, but I have been pretty lucky with at least being able to get the basic functions to work.
Shawn, I tried doing that but when I set game mode to on nothing happened. Does it need to be on any specific channel at the time?
Jeff Kitchen, I didn't even think to look at the manual, I'm looking at the online version now and I'll let you know if I have any luck. BTW it's a "one for all" URC-6011
Didja use the TV buttons or get it to work with the universal remote?
How did you get it to work, I have the same problem- trying to use this tv for PS3. Can't get to the video/input channel
Because my name is on the business, I work hard to make sure you get the best possible shopping experience. I look forward to hearing your comments .
