Question about Sony BRAVIA KDL-40S2010 40 in. LCD Television

Open Question

Hello :) My name is KrystalAnn and my 55" Sony Bravia EX5 is stuck on a demo loop that will not go away no matter what we press on the remote - including RETURN which is what the TV tells us to to stop the demo loop. Please help me! It sucks very much bad and there is no solution for this problem in the instruction manual or online anywhere. I appreciate your help! Thank you so much!

SOURCE: I have a Sony Bravia

I'm sorry for the difficulties you're experiencing in turning OFF the Demo mode. Press and hold the HOME button located on the front of the TV until the message Demo Mode: off appears on the screen.

If it doesn't resolve, please follow the below steps to perform a reset of the TV and it should resolve the issue.

  1. Turn on the TV.
  2. Wait approximately 40 seconds for the TV to completely start up
  3. On the TV remote control, press and hold the UP ARROW button.
  4. While holding the UP ARROW button, press and release the POWER button on the TV set.
  5. NOTES:
    • The button may be on the front, top or side of the TV.
    • The TV may turn off and then back on.
  6. Release the UP ARROW button.

Thanks for understanding. Please let me know if you require any clarifications.
