PS3 stuck in the demo mode

Bought my PS3 from a pawn shop and it's a retail store version, and it's stuck in the demonstration mode. Is there a way to reprogram the system or to just reset it to get it out of the demonstration mode? Reply here or to my email address CJQuikk1@yahoo.com Tanks in advance for your help.

There is no way to remove it it is a stoleing unit you by only stroe unils have demo mode on them sony puts in on there so the stores can give preview of what system can do and you can try it out allretail sysatems do not come in demo mode so yours was stoleing only thing you can do si see if pawn shop willgive money back if not your stuck with it as if sony finds out you have one they will press charges or just take system and not give back
now depending on what demo mode your runing there are codes to unlock them each time you use system jsut search for unlocking codes online

Hey there, just bought a ps3 off a mate of mine. Everything works well, but cant change any settings as it keeps coming up "Not allowed to whilst in Demo mode. Also, just bought an adaptor for my memory...


Hold L1, R1, and select simultaneously when the security settings icon is selected in the XMB. Then it'll ask for you to input a code. 5-2-0-2, This will unlock it from demonstration mode.

If it's a PAL PS3, well sorry I dont know the code.

I've got a ps3, it's got demonstration mode. How can I get rid of this mode?


this is what i've found
"I successfully updated my legitimately-purchased "demo" PS3 via Ethernet to demonstration firmware 2.10 after entering the password "5202". However, please note that this is STILL demonstration firmware and must be unlocked at EVERY power-on. (Oddly, the password changed to 2464 after the update.)

Even then, many features, including the PlayStation Store and folding@home, are blocked!! After exhaustive research and effort, including replacing and rezeroing the hard drive (no effect), attempting to update via CF and Memory Stick ("No Valid Update info found"), and physical examination of the logic board itself for a reset button or removable jumper (no such luck), I concluded that there is no practical way to do it. The Samsung NAND flash firmware chip is soldered, not socketed, so essentially not replaceable without extremely delicate work (assuming one could find a replacement chip anyway!)."
You cant really do anything at this point. return it to the store and get a refund.

Ps3 demo mode


Greetings JOEYMOLE,

From everything I have been able to find, a unit that has demo mode on it, is never supposed to be used for retail consumption. Those modes are only for actual demo models in stores. I reviewed alot of information trying to find this out, but it appears that there is no way around this.

Sorry I cannot be of more help.

Thank you,

Dorothy

PS3 Retail Demo Mode


In security settings press and hold select + square + L1 and L2


than enter 1 of these following codes depending on your version number


1.5x code: 5202
1.6x code: 7568
1.7x code: 0506
1.8x code: 7712 or 7259

and the ps3 will be unlocked from demo mode.
but be aware that this will only be for a couple of minutes.
so make sure you have the latest firmware the not demo one but the ordinary from the playstation site on a removable storage media
something like a memory stick or flash drive

so you can update immediately after unlocking you ps3! only this way you can completely unlock your system!!
