Sony CDX GT160 locked in Demo mode

I recently purchased a Sony CDX GT160 cd /Radio which only runs in Demo display mode and none of the controls work. It doesn't have a reset button, as later models do. It will play a CD at low volume, but volume control doesn't work.
Does anyone know how to break out of the Demo sequence?
Thanks, Martin
