PS3 Retail Demo Mode

I work for a retail store,and we received 2 PS3 60GB models.One of them went on display,the other I won it.Once powered on,it says "Demonstration Mode 2.3" on the bottom right corner.
Is there a way I can get it out of this demo mode and basically turn it into a regular PS3?The only thing I can do with it is update and play/watch demos that are loaded on it. Thanks

In security settings press and hold select + square + L1 and L2


than enter 1 of these following codes depending on your version number


1.5x code: 5202
1.6x code: 7568
1.7x code: 0506
1.8x code: 7712 or 7259

and the ps3 will be unlocked from demo mode.
but be aware that this will only be for a couple of minutes.
so make sure you have the latest firmware the not demo one but the ordinary from the playstation site on a removable storage media
something like a memory stick or flash drive

so you can update immediately after unlocking you ps3! only this way you can completely unlock your system!!

It will not play the disk


Try a disc cleaner available at most electronic retail stores. Test with a friends disc from his PS3 that you know works. If both of these options fail you may have a faulty drive that you will have to send in to Sony for repairs.

During initial setup, after we choose the HDMI option the screen goes black. Work fine connected to TV


Are you using an HDMI cable? If not, your best option is to get one online, because they go for about $59-99 at retail stores.
If you are using an HDMI cable, be sure you are using a resolution compatible with your TV. In display options, when you choose HDMI, you should find a list of checkboxes with resolutions (420p, 720i, etc). Personally, my TV only works up to 1080i, because it doesn't have progressive scan (p). The PS3 may be trying to set it to 1080p which your TV can't handle. Try out different resolutions until it works.

Want to connect non wireless remote controls to console


No this is not true. you can purchase wired controllers for the PS3 usually at a greatly reduced price than the wireless models. Most larger PS3 retailers should have stock of wired control pads so it would pay to do some more ringing around

Hope this has helped

Ps3 demo mode


Greetings JOEYMOLE,

From everything I have been able to find, a unit that has demo mode on it, is never supposed to be used for retail consumption. Those modes are only for actual demo models in stores. I reviewed alot of information trying to find this out, but it appears that there is no way around this.

Sorry I cannot be of more help.

Thank you,

Dorothy
