Question about Standard (CRT) Televisions

Bell Howell TV

My Bell Howell TV has suddenly decided to go into Demo Mode. It won't allow you to turn the TV off, you have to unplug it. After being unplugged for two weeks it is still in demo mode when I plug it back in. Any ideas what happened and how I can fix it? I have looked for some sort of re-set switch and can not see one.

The tv has been accidentally set for "demo mode". Press the volume up and volume down buttons in front of the TV at the same time for about 5 to 10 seconds untill the demo disappears or sometimes the TV will turn off. You should regain control of the TV after this.

27'' TV will not turn off demo mode

My ancient TV/VCR Quasar combo had the same problem...and I don't have the original remote control. But holding down the "play" button for five seconds did the trick. Perhaps your TV is similar. I also read that holding down the "menu" button works as well. Hope this helps.

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.

Stuck in demo mode

I had the same problem. Was told to unplug the set for 1 minute but it still was stuck in menu screen scrolling. So I was told to unplug the TV for 4 hours, it resets it I guess because it worked! Try it!
