Demo Mode wont go away!!

TV works great sounds great but the demo function keeps coming up. I thought it might have been a weak battery in the TV remote or DTV remote. To my dismay it wasn't the case. I removed both batteries and still the tv was acting up.I unplugged it for 1 min and plugged it back in, didn't work. Please help.. Capt Delo

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.

Demo mode wont go away what do i do?

Hi i,m ken I am working on this problem, I found this tv has chip problems, start at the power supply ($100) and go from there. If the power supply checks out ok check the chips, there is a way to reset the chips, also disconnect any add ons to the tv, and try that. I was told you can remove the batteries from the remote press all the buttons and reset the chips, but they did not have good results! I will keep working on this. ken
