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.

I have kenwood XD-A75 stereo,and i have not been able to remove the demo mode after i try to cancle it it just comes back after i turn the power on, i read the manual but nothing. is there another step i...

When the AC cord is first plugged into the unit, the unit will go into demo mode. To cancel demonstration mode press the Ex.Bass/Demo button. This button is on the front of the receiver, left side towards the top. The demo mode will be cancelled and the receiver will be in low power consumption mode. It may appear that the unit is off because the display will disappear but the radio is in fact on. When the radio is on you can also adjust the bass with the Ex.Bass/Demo button as well.

How do i turn off the demo mode?

The "DEMO" mode initializes when power is initiated in the unit for the first time.You cancel it by turning turning the power on by using the button the unit or the remote.If you unplug the unit from the power outlet between uses, and plug it in will go back to the demo mode.this can be avoided by leaving the unit plugged in between uses and/or install 3 AA batteries in the battery compartment in the lower rear behind the main battery compartment .these batteries are memory is not necessary to instal the 9 size D batteries for portable use unless you use it as a portable...I hope this was helpful...

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.

How to disable demo mode on JVC MX-c220

Make sure the unit is on. Press the FM Mode /Mute -Demo button (right next to the power) press it untill you get to either mono or auto (-for stereo). That will take the unit out of the demo mode. next turn the music jog dial (located just above the preset buttons) untill you get to which ever setting you choose. Hope that helps. ( I can't find the manual on line either- not even from JVC! )

Panasonic SA-AK17 MASH stereo system

That demo mode thing is painfully annoying. With mine, I had to hold the 'display/demo' button in for about 1 second and then the words "NO DEMO" appeared. That fixed it.

Turns itself on

Hey there, you actually need to press the Stop /-DEMO Button when the device is doing the demo will take about 8 seconds and it will display "DEMO OFF" and turn off. This procedure needs to be run everytime there is a power failure OR you unplug it from the wall.
Pressing the Stop /-DEMO while it is on will cause it to start the demo while it is running!
