I have the Sony 50R550A L.E.D Television and for some unknown reason the tv keeps returning retail/Demo Mode

Do a reset to this TV and check. If it do not help you, contact any service technician. There are two types of reset to TVs. The first is simple to do; a Hard Reset. The other is somewhat skilled; is a Factory Reset (System Reset). To make it a hard reset, just unplug the TV from AC mains wall socket, and re-plug it back after 15 minutes or so. If you do this by overnight; will be better. This procedure will make it a hard reset. If you want to make it a system reset [Factory Reset]; you have to enter its service mode option, and select the factory reset option. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts. Surf the site with patience. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/

How do i turn off demo mode


It is impossible to turn off demo mode as handsets in demo mode were specifically manufactured for demo mode. If you purchased the phone and it was in demo mode, please return it to the retailer and ask for a replacement.

How to turn off demo mode on Sony kdl-40ex523


Make sure the TV is set for home mode. Information for doing this is included on page 11 of the owner's manual. Click here to view or download the owner's manual for the TV. ON the remote control press the up arrow and hold it in. Press the power button on the TV itself twice. Hopefully this will correct the problem.

Your TV is in store demo mode.

To fix this, access the TV's menu and find the option to run initial setup. At the beginning of initial set-up, you'll be asked whether or not the TV should be put into Home or Retail mode. Choose Home.

PIP for Sony KV-27XBR45 television trouble shooting


If you have the original remote for this TV on the pip menu (left side slider on remote all the way up) there is a pip off button. If you unplug the unit long enough it should go back to normal. If you go into demo mode and then exit mode you will again be out of the pip. With out the original remote you cannot easily turn pip off.
