Hold L1, R1, and "select" , and "square" simultaneously when the security settings icon is selected in the settings menu. Then it'll ask for you to input a code. In this case it's 5-6-6-8 (FIRMWARE 1.5), This will unlock it from demonstration mode. Do this every time you need it

FOR FIRMWARE 2.10 USE 2-4-6-4
5-6-6-8 ya i got one too, sell it on ebay you will get like 200 for it. of you can go to and google search their product infectus2 chip and buy it from some where in the E.U. then sadder the chip with wires.... just look at these....

dam i know a lot of ship to do for so little trust me the this is the only way.

PS3 stuck in demonstration mode 2.80

Visit the Playstation3 website and download the lastest version onto a flash drive. Making sure you dont have any other software/files on the flash drive.

Create a folder on the flash drive in which to save the update data.
Using a PC, create a folder named “PS3” on the flash drive or USB device. Within the PS3 folder, create a folder named “UPDATE”.
Install the playstation update into that folder. "PS3UPDAT.PUP"
Your console SHOULD now reconise the update.
If nothing changes restore the playstation fully to its default status.

I've got a ps3, it's got demonstration mode. How can I get rid of this mode?

this is what i've found
"I successfully updated my legitimately-purchased "demo" PS3 via Ethernet to demonstration firmware 2.10 after entering the password "5202". However, please note that this is STILL demonstration firmware and must be unlocked at EVERY power-on. (Oddly, the password changed to 2464 after the update.)

Even then, many features, including the PlayStation Store and folding@home, are blocked!! After exhaustive research and effort, including replacing and rezeroing the hard drive (no effect), attempting to update via CF and Memory Stick ("No Valid Update info found"), and physical examination of the logic board itself for a reset button or removable jumper (no such luck), I concluded that there is no practical way to do it. The Samsung NAND flash firmware chip is soldered, not socketed, so essentially not replaceable without extremely delicate work (assuming one could find a replacement chip anyway!)."
You cant really do anything at this point. return it to the store and get a refund.
