Question about Philips Magnavox 27MS343S 27" TV

Magnavox Demo TV

We bought a TV from the owner. It was working fine and then when we tried to adjust the color it went to what appears to be a store demo text. It repeats itself over and again and pushing buttons or trying to use the remote control is useless. We cant even turn it off without unplugging it.It begins with "Here's why this hould be your next TV" and then proceeds to the next screen which says "easy to use remote control" "great picture" "smart features" after which it demonstrates close captioning, sleep timer, etc. I'm sure there's a way to get it to work since it was working fine when we got it. Your help would be appreciated. I have three magnavox TV's and am very happy with your products. Can you help?

Magnavox older tv; suddenly shows a "tutorial" which begins "Here's why this should be your next tv". then reviews tv's features ex: close captioning, sleep timer, language,...


Your TV appears to be in what is known as DEMO MODE, which is used when the TV is set up in the store on display.

In order to disable that mode and return it to normal operation, try the following procedure:

Turn on your TV.
Hold down the VOLUME UP and the VOLUME DOWN buttons at the same time for 10 seconds.
Be sure to use the buttons on the front of the TV and not the ones on the remote control.

Some models may turn off at this point while others may not. Either way, the set should now be ready for use in NORMAL MODE.

If that does not cure the problem, then check in your OWNER'S MNAUAL for the exact procedure on how to disable the demo mode feature.

I hope that was helpful to you, good luck and take care.

Joe.

Older magnavox - TR2510C101. The TV store advertisment is all it will display. Says "This should be your next TV, etc." Will not shut off or respond. We have to unplug it.


The tv is in the demo mode. To get it out of the demo mode, try this:
Press and hold the VOLUME UP and VOLUME DOWN front panel buttons at the same time. This will take the TV out of that demo mode.
Hope this helps

TV seems to be in some kind of sales demo mode


To disable the Demo mode, perform the following:
  1. Turn GA_googleFillSlot("TL-IMU-Article"); on the TV.
  2. Simultaneously hold down the Vol+ and Vol- buttons on the front of the TV. Do not use the remote control.
  3. Hold for about 6 seconds
  4. Certain model TVs may turn off, others will not. But in either case, the Demo mode should be disabled.
