Can't get it out of Demo mode

Bought this used, with no remote, people were using a harmony universal. Had a demo prior to buying, worked great. Got home & hooked it up. When I plugged it in it powered up just fine, went into it demo mode, message said push the power button while this message is displayed to exit demo. Pushed it, nothing still in demo, no buttons work. I have checked and rechecked all connections, there is nothing hooked up wrong, no crossed wires or grounds. HELP ME PLEASE!!!!

My tv screen is displaying buy this tv,how do I get it to work again.I don't have remote


Hi Melissa, sounds like it is a display model that is in some kind of demo mode! You will need to access the settings page, this will probably require a remote unless you have buttons on the unit....you could try using a universal remote!

How to Disable Philips Magnavox Demo mode


  • Many people are annoyed about demo mode coming out of nowhere and causing problems with many Magnavox televisions there is a simple process which will allow you to disable the demo mode.
  1. Television must be turned off But remain plugged in
  2. First You must place both your fingers on the VOL + and VOL - buttons on the television.
  3. Then Turn on the television while still holding the volume buttons in for about 6 seconds..
  • The demo mode will now be disabled, Some televisions may turn off after demo mode is disabled just use remote to turn television back on or use programme up and down button on television to turn it on.
  • This will work even if you don't have the original remote as it requires no remote at all its a simple process and it will work with nearly all models of Magnavox televisions.

Can't turn off PIP on Sony XBR videoscope TV


Hit the set up button on the TV.
You'll see options to change the language. The last option is to put the TV in "Demo Mode."
Put the TV in Demo mode, when the first screen appears, "Welcome to...." the PIP will disappear.
Hit exit before the screen moves to the "Menu." If you miss it, watch the demo once--it will restart--and hit the exit button the next time you see the "Welcome to" message.

I just did this and it worked for me - i hope it works for you.

TV seems to be in some kind of sales demo mode


To disable the Demo mode, perform the following:
  1. Turn GA_googleFillSlot("TL-IMU-Article"); on the TV.
  2. Simultaneously hold down the Vol+ and Vol- buttons on the front of the TV. Do not use the remote control.
  3. Hold for about 6 seconds
  4. Certain model TVs may turn off, others will not. But in either case, the Demo mode should be disabled.
