Stcuk in demo mode for Model TC - 29V2H not shown anywhere here

Hi, i couldnt find my model here quite old i think about ten years, for some reason is stuck in demo mode, ie the sign you have the pleasure of watching a panasonic t.v sign comes up every ten minutes. Can anyone remember back that far on how to get out of this on this model. we do not have the remote. i have read a few and they suggest using the action button together with the up volume botton but this set does not have an action button. The set has a press front tray that slides out automatically at the centre front when pushed with a finger. on this tray it has two line of buttons. on the top row there are 7 buttons that read as follows (0's are the buttons) 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 11 system 1 - + Auto/function Pre (Videosymbol) 0 0 0 0 0 0 Display TV/AV - (VOL sign) + V (arrow down) ^ and next to all that it says "AV operation unit" We also do not have the manual, and if anyone could point us in the right direction as to where to find a manual for this, we would be extremly grateful, thanks so much regards Alastair

Try a different source on the tv to see if the tv is toast. Ten years is quite old and tvs have come on a long way since this one. Alternatively try a different tv on the cable box.

My toshiba 36in crt tv's demo mode keeps turning it self on

Since I do not have your tv model number so can't be specific, check Demo mode option in Menu and turn it off. Some tvs have selection like Store/ Display and Home mode, store or display mode is demo mode so set tv on home mode to turn off demo mode.
Let me know model number of your tv if you have additional question.

The tv has been accidentally set for "demo mode". Press the volume up and volume down buttons in front of the TV at the same time for about 5 to 10 seconds untill the demo disappears or sometimes the TV will turn off. You should regain control of the TV after this.

TV seems to be in some kind of sales demo mode

To disable the Demo mode, perform the following:
  1. Turn GA_googleFillSlot("TL-IMU-Article"); on the TV.
  2. Simultaneously hold down the Vol+ and Vol- buttons on the front of the TV. Do not use the remote control.
  3. Hold for about 6 seconds
  4. Certain model TVs may turn off, others will not. But in either case, the Demo mode should be disabled.

I have not worked on this model of set, but on many TV models, you can get it out of the demo mode by holding down the menu button for at least 10 seconds or longer.

If this does not work call the tech support for your set. They should have a definate answer. It is also possible that there is a fault condition with the set, and it is not properly responding to the front panel controls to be able to be put out of the demo mode. But, this is not a common type of fault.

My experiance is to not put money into a TV that is over ten years old. TVs stress out their electronic components worse than almost any other electronic product. After 10 years, there are so many parts that are ready to fail that your are probably wasting your money trying to get any more life out of it.
Another option is to wholesale replace the main board by sending it to Module Exchange at 972-298-1212, or PTS Electronics 800-844-7871
Be careful on buying a new one though. Often times, these new technology ones are much worse. Always Google the model number of the set you intend to buy and add the word 'repair' or 'complaint' to see if it is one of the many models that are customer service nightmares being produced by even the most reputable companies today.
Hope ya fix it!
