Hi Carlito71, I have the exact reciever and encountered the same problem right after moving into a new house. After messing with it for 3 days, someone told me that if I had it plugged into a power-strip, I should take it out and plug it straight into a wall socket. I sure didn't think it could ever be that simple, but I plugged it into the wall, pushed the power switch, and it was no longer in demo mode. Sounds crazy, but it worked for me.

Hi Carlito,

Not sure what method you are using to turn off the demo mode, try this

  1. disconnect the unit from the power
  2. plug the unit back in again after 5 mins
  3. whilst the display indicates "now demonstration mode" press the on/off button on the unit
I got this procedure from the owners manual, so should work. If it does not, then try holding the power button in for 5 secs to do a software reset.

Good luck, get back to me here is you still have problems. If you need, you can download a PDF of the manual from here.

regards
Graeme

It is stuck in demo mode how do I fix the problem


SELECTED PRODUCT: (change your search)
How to disable the demonstration (DEMO) mode.
Article ID: 42707 ' Last Updated: 03/11/2014
Sony® stereo systems will enter the DEMO mode the first time you power on the system or if you do not operate the unit shortly after turning on the power to the system.
To disable the DEMO mode, while the stereo system is powered off, press the DISPLAY button repeatedly until the demonstration display disappears.
NOTES:
  • Depending on your model, some units have a DEMO button that is used to disable the demonstration mode. If your unit has this button, with the power to the system off, press the DEMO button until the display disappears.
  • If applicable to your unit, setting the clock on your stereo system will also disable the DEMO mode.
  • Using the buttons on a supplied remote control will not disable the demonstration mode.
If model-specific information is needed to complete any of these steps, refer to the operating instructions supplied with the product. Manuals, Specifications and Warranty information for your Sony product is available online.

hello, try this You need to enter MENU mode. To do this you press the little search button next to the volume knob. What you do is hold that button for about 1-2 seconds. It will then come up with menu demo on. I think you press the volume knob and it will go off smile.gif

I can NOT stop the "verbiage" from appearing and


gfarley806,

Your description sounds like your unit is in the "DEMO" mode. The procedure to access the demo mode and turn it on or off is in the operaitons manual. If you do not have one you can download one for free at http://www.retrevo.com/support/Toshiba-42H81-TVs-manual/id/311bh747/t/2/ . If you do not care about getting the maual and just want the verbiage to end here is the procedure:

To start the demo mode:

Press and hold the MENU button on the front of the set for 4 seconds.

To stop the demo mode:

Press RECALL, EXIT or Power
Thanks for using FixYa and for the great rating. Great ratings keep experts answering questions. Thank you.

To get the STR-DE845 ( or STR-DE945 ) out of DEMO MODE - Turn unit on and HOLD POWER BUTTON FOR A FEW SECONDS ...Turn unit off and when you turn it on again it should be reset ...It worked for me.

Don't know if this procedure is still effective, use to work on some of the older phil/mag but try pressing down on both the vol up and vol down keys at the same time for about 10 seconds or until the demo goes away. use the keys located in the front of the tv. good luck!

GE Microwave DEMO MODE


I just bought a condo with a GE Spacemaker Mod# JVM1860SD
that was stuck in demo mode. (This mod# has been replaced by the JVM1870*** series)

I called GE twice in two days, and finally got someone who had the solution (and it worked):

  1. Unplug the unit for at least 30 seconds
  2. Plug the unit back in DO NOT SET THE CLOCK
  3. While the unit is still "booting up" and the display screen is lit with gibberish, HOLD THE POWER LEVEL AND THE ZERO BUTTON for at least 5 seconds.
  4. After 5 seconds, the screen will display "demo mode off"
It messed me up at first because the power level and zero pads don't beep when the unit is booting up... but it worked.
- Again, this is for the GE Spacemaker 1860-1870 series models only - The women who gave me instructions said she had different demo mode unlock methods for the 1400, 3670, 2070 etc... so call GE if you have a different model.
P.S. my model looks like this - the keypad setup is key http://products.geappliances.com/ApplProducts/Dispatcher?REQUEST=SPECPAGE&SKU=JVM1870SK&SITEID=GEA
