HelloCustomer welcome to Just Answer.

Can you give me the model number of the back of the TV?

Do you have the original remote of the TV?

Some TV have 2 kinds of game mode. One is just a name for an auxiliary input on the TV, the other also imply a special brightness/color setting for when you used a video-game console. What is the one we talk about here?

AHH Help!

I do not have the original remote. So I bought a universal, and its input options are still only game and tv.


The model number is XXXXX Game mode is just the input type that is showing on screen...

I think this is one of those TV with the game mode also being a setting. That can be removed by pressing menu and then using ch+/- and Vol+/- to select game mode OFF. That is just for the setting part i think.

If just unplugging the TV for 20 minute don't allow it to return to the Tuner mode, you will have to get a remote to do it.

I'm not sure to understand correctly if you can select select TV with your universal remote, in any case here is a link to the original remote if you want it:

Here is a small note about the input jacks on that TV:
"NOTE: The AUDIO and VIDEO jacks on
the front panel are given priority over those
on the rear panel. Suppose that the connec-
tions are already made with the rear-panel
jacks and additionally with the front-panel
jacks. In this case too, the input via the
front ones is automatically selected."
