    And if that dow not solve the problem, let me know little details of Demo mode like what is the sequence in tv to show in demo mode.

    I tried to press volume + power buttons - it switches between sote display on/off modes.



    but the problem does not go away.



    the screen is split into left and right and it says

    - Demo mode

    bravia engine -



    if shows off on left half and on on other half.





  • kvk_kishore Jul 10, 2010

  • Shahid Electronics
    Shahid Electronics Jul 10, 2010

    OK, it calls Store Display Mode.



    Press and hold Volume down (Vol-) and power button on tv top at same time for 6 seconds to turn Off that demo mode.

    Please note, buttons are located on tv top and these are Vol - and Power, press and hold both buttons at same time and keep pressing for 6 seconds.



    This is the only way to turn off demo mode.

  • kvk_kishore Jul 10, 2010

Hi mike harris,
i think your TV is on demonstration mode.

To turn off the demo mode, press and hold the HOME or MENU button on the TV for more than 10 seconds. The messageDemo mode: Off will appear on the screen.

    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.

    I can't turn off the demo mode on my sony bravia tv


    Press Menu on tv remote, go to Settings and select Factory Reset and press enter button on remote, tv will reset to factory default settings and turn Off and On again itself, now select HOME mode instead of Shop mode to avoid demo mode and go by initial setup screen instructions.
    Above are generic info about Sony bravia tv, let me know model number of your tv if you do not see factory reset option in settings menu.
    Thanks.

    You may have a case of a bad signal board. The clue was that your power button on the tv and remote are the only ones functioning. If the tv is still under warraty, call the service number to get help!
