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.
