Demo mode wont shut off

My uncle's tv is about 4 years old. on power up , everything is working fine. about 5-7 minutes later after tv warms up, starts to cycle through demo mode on screen. I managed to turn if off through menu and even take batteries out of remote, yet demo mode still re-appeared. I saw other problems on this page mention remote sensor in the TV and microprossor. anyone see this problem b4. Should I try the remote sensor assembly on the TV first. Don't want to start throwing parts at it until I can either rule out or prove something is at fault. Anyone know if I can just disconnect the remote sensor inside to see if my screen demo goes away ?whithout causing harm to other components inside ? many thanks in advance, mike

Go to the demo mode and press off. I just did this after 2 frustrating days of demo mode. It went off instantly when I did this

Ok , let us know if the " hold menu button in for 20 seconds " works. I'll pass this on to my uncle also .

Some friends of ours has this problem also. I've been trying to find a solution over the internet for a few hours now. I came across one page that said to hold the menu button on the front of the tv in for 20 seconds and that should fix it. guess we'll see.

I have this same problem, just started 2 days ago. Changed batteries in remote and everything - driving me nuts- now i cannot change channel or adjust volume! I powered off TV, took batteries out of remote, turned back on and now still stuck. I think we bought junk!

TV keeps shutting off. It will stay on a few minutes when cold but then will shut off. When we turn it on again after its warm it shuts off and won't stay on. Could something in menu bar have been changed...

It looks like a power supply SMPS problem.

You have to replace the optical isolator in the SMPS feed back circuit. It is a 4 pin IC
Mostly this may be the problem. Take the help of the service personnel.

Stuck in demo mode

I had the same problem. Was told to unplug the set for 1 minute but it still was stuck in menu screen scrolling. So I was told to unplug the TV for 4 hours, it resets it I guess because it worked! Try it!

snow basically is a symptom of weak signal.

please check.

1  input weak like cable or antenna or loose wire from the source..

2  in tv antennae socket loose.

3  near tuner any thing loose or track loose.

4  cable wire might be old.

hope this will help.

Sony Trinitron TV Snow

I found out accidentally, is when I push the "demo" button, which shows many of the features on the TV. It'll run through the demo a few times, for as much as 10 minutes, then the TV will be fine. as you are getting fine picture on demo it indicates that your tv is perfectly ok. problem is out side of tv 1 check cable connection for loose or its socket is loose. 2 wire might be old or defective. 3 check tunning is done properly 4 if every thing is fine then check for tuner in your tv. good luck
