Philips tv turns on by itself and is stuck in demo mode

Help! My 20" Philips tv started turning on by itself and cycling through all the channels (I think this is demo mode). I can't turn it off or change channels with the remote or manually - I have to unplug it because it keeps turning on. Anyone know a solution?

Philips television problem

Try this:

With the remote control - press and hold BOTH volume (-) and (+) at the same time for a few seconds, or until the display reads DEMO ON or DEMO OFF (what you want, here). This will shake it in and out of "Demo" mode. It might work for you.

I just found a solution elsewhere on this site...
In order to make the Demo Mode stop, you should press Volume Up and Channel Up together, and hold for four seconds. This worked for my mom's tv, I hope it works for you, mooone (and everyone else, too).

Philips tv demo

Try holding the volume up and channel down buttons on the set at the same time. Give me the model # if that doesn't work.

Buttons on TV or remote not working. Can only cycle through video input options.

It sounds as though the TVs in a demo mode. Has someone recently been over and was playing with the remote. If so go into the menu of the tV set and look for set up and demo mode. Turn off the demo mode. if this doesent help call i-866-427-3946 and talk to the customer service deptartment. Good Luck
