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!!

Samsung galaxy s4 m919 how to turn off samsung retail mode?


There are a few different 'retail modes', so depending on which type you're referring to, you can try opening the demo/retail app, and entering one of the following passcodes to unlock it:
M729Q16K8546
5444

If that doesn't work, you can reboot the device into Recovery, and do a full wipe, which should remove the Retail mode app, unless the device is an LDU. If it is, your only option will be to unlock the bootloader, and manually flash a custom ROM.

Touch panel will not work - the only thing I get is a flashing notice across the screen "simply samsung". Thought maybe a fuse blew.


It's very likely that somebody has accidentally set the oven into demo mode; something which is accessed by a secret keypress sequence for display in retail stores.

If you state the exact model number of Samsung oven then I'll try to supply you with a more specific answer.

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
