Sony CMT-MX550i -- I had good results by pressing the "TIMER MENU" button on the remote and simply setting the time. After that, no more demo.

SOURCE: Sony HCDX1 STUCK IN DEMO MODE

I don't have a Sony HCDX1, so if this doesn't work, please do not rate me down.

Push the PLAY and STOP buttons (at the same time) and hold them for about ten seconds. This should get you out of DEMO mode.

Power the unit off, then back on. If the display now says LOCKED, then press the PLAY and STOP buttons (at the same time) again to unlock.

If this does work, please rate it Solved, so others can use this solution. Thanks!

Sony music hi fi system mhc-gzr88d show only demo not started


If only demo mode is playing,it's mean set is in standby mode.Normally
in standby mode it can't be operated.You have to power on the set by pressing power botton during demo mode.Once it gets power on,it will
start to work according to user required function.If the set not get power on after pressing power botton,then it's an electrical problem
and need to visit your nearby repairing centre.

My sony cmt-nex3 has the standby light flashing, but when i press the on butto, it doesn't turn on


Check the back for speaker wire shorts, next! there may be a short in the audio output chip or surrounding parts in the stereo, this is more suited for a technician to sort out.

Sony LBT W5000


According to Page 46 of the LBT-W5000 Operating Instructions:
"The display stars flashing as soon as you plug in the power cord even though you haven't turned on the system (demonstration mode).
Press DISPLAY (for LBT-W5000 / W300 / XB700 / XB500) or DEMO (STANDBY) (for other models) while the system is off. If the system is in the Power Saving mode, press POWER SAVE / DEMO (STANDBY) (for LBT-W5000 / W300 / XB700 / XB500). The demonstration appears automatically the first time you plug in the power cord, or if there is a power outage lasting longer than half a day."
I tested this today, as my LBT-W5000 was in Demonstration Mode. It definitely works. The only catch is (at least on the W5000), and it's a minor one, you have to reset your clock afterwards.
