Re: sony demo

Had the same problem. The display of the home cinema system kept showing "sony demo". I went to the system menu and reset all settings to factory!

Re: sony demo

Even if the system is off, the system consumes power to display the clock and to stay responsive to commands from the remote. The power saving mode is introduced to reduce the amount of power consumed during standby. In this mode, the clock is not displayed. To change to power saving mode, press DISPLAY on the remote repeatedly while the system is off until the demonstration and the clock display disappear. To change the display Press DISPLAY on the remote repeatedly while the system is off. Each time you press the button, the display changes cyclically as follows: Demonstration mode t Clock display* t Power saving mode * The clock is displayed only when you have set the clock. To cancel power saving mode Press DISPLAY on the remote repeatedly while the system is off until the demonstration or the clock display appears.

From memory the Panasonic's have a demo feature, where you turn off the unit it lights up again sort of like a screen saver. Hold down the "stop" button on the main, should come up with "demo off" on the display, if succesfully . Hope this help.

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!
