Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
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!!
