Pioneer X MT- 2000 Stereo Bookshelf Unit - No sound!

Unit was plugged in and on in demo mode with display banner ready to use but not used for several months. All functions like volume, radio, clock, lights and 3 changers and drawers seem to work. Load CD and press play on unit- no sound coming out of speakers. Set clock. Press enter on front of unit to stop demo mode according to manual. Press Play on remote and on unit. Still no sound. Tried another similar Panasonic bookshelf unit speaker. No sound. Add AM external radio antenna. Switch to tuner. No sound. Tried CD in other stereo - CD fine. Unplug and replug in speaker wires in unit and back of speakers. Change batteries in remote. Plug in to different outlet and then different power strip. Don't know if is thin speaker wires, or the unit internal sound controller, if it was hit by a power surge, if it is on mute for some reason, if there is a reset button - can't figure out why there is no sound!(unit was only used a couple times previously and worked fine. Item probably out of warrenty. Store no longer carries item. Any advice, directions to get help or assistance appreciated!

It definitely sounds like it took a surge. yhe Power Amop IC in those things are pretty sensitive. Any decent repair shop should be able to repair it for under $125.

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.
  • 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.

I have a jvc mx-c330 bookshelf home stereo in the middle of listening to music the band e.q. changes on its own. do i need to set something as far as memory or what .

There is a demo button. When it's plugged in the first time, or with a power loss, it reverts to that mode. Hit the demo button and it goes away. =)

Can't get auxiliary to work on Pioneer Mosfet Head unit 50x4

you have to turn the AUX input on through the function menu which can be accessed by following these steps

1. with the unit on. press and hold the source button unitl the unit turns of (or goes into demo mode, which is fine)

2. depending on the model that you have, you will have to press and hold the
(volume button or the audio button), until a menu is displayed.

3 . toggle through until you find AUX 1 and AUX 2. i would turn them both on and see which one you have plugged into, then you can go back and turn the other off.

4. once you have change it to ON. press the source button to turn on. the aux option should now be in your source options.

5. also, while on AUX, you can go into the audio settings and turn up the SLA (sound level adjustment) to +4

hope this helps

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.

Inverting color display

To cancel demo mode: While unit is OFF and ignition is ACC or ON, press "display" to cancel.

To cancel reverse demo: While unit is OFF and ignition is ACC or ON, press "band" to cancel.

You can also use the MULTI-CONTROL to turn demo mode OFF.

Mine would do the same thing. What you need to do is turn the unit off and it should go into demo mode. There is an option for "reverse mode on or off" make sure it is turned off. I beleive you will have to hit the band button to change it.
