Sony XR-C2600 car stereo stuck in demo mode

Car stereo unit XR-C2600 is stuck in what appears to be 'demo-mode' with screen alternating the text:"sony...receiever..cassette" constantly as well as bass levels also flashing.

But can't get unit to turn on despite pressing as well as holding numerous buttons on the faceplate.

Have also tried reseting the unit behind the detachable faceplate as per instructions in the manual for when changing car battery, all this does is reset the clock to "1:00", still can't access anything arrrrrghhhhhh.

    Maybe sometime this is useful, but not in my case. I've cleaned the contacts very well but
    my Sony CDX 2000 doesn't work. It's in "demo mode".
    I think I'buy another radio (not Sony)

It is stuck in demo mode how do I fix the problem


SELECTED PRODUCT: (change your search)
How to disable the demonstration (DEMO) mode.
Article ID: 42707 ' Last Updated: 03/11/2014
Sony® stereo systems will enter the DEMO mode the first time you power on the system or if you do not operate the unit shortly after turning on the power to the system.
To disable the DEMO mode, while the stereo system is powered off, press the DISPLAY button repeatedly until the demonstration display disappears.
NOTES:
  • Depending on your model, some units have a DEMO button that is used to disable the demonstration mode. If your unit has this button, with the power to the system off, press the DEMO button until the display disappears.
  • If applicable to your unit, setting the clock on your stereo system will also disable the DEMO mode.
  • Using the buttons on a supplied remote control will not disable the demonstration mode.
If model-specific information is needed to complete any of these steps, refer to the operating instructions supplied with the product. Manuals, Specifications and Warranty information for your Sony product is available online.

How to set the color on my faceplate. It contnues to change color


You're stuck in DEMO mode. When you see stereo's on display at a store it is set to a DEMO mode that cycles through colors, functions, etc so that potential customers can see the different aspects of the unit. To get it to stop changing colors you'll have to go into the menu and turn DEMO OFF.

For Sony radios you need an aux Bus adapter called the Sony XA 300. It works with the Bus IN RCA, and there whould also be another plug spot for the Bus power and signal interrupter. That is how the Sony knows to access that port.
