TV STUCK IN "DEMO MODE"

AFTER CALLING TECH SUPPORT I LEARNED THAT THE TELEVISION WAS STUCK IN DEMO MODE...REVIEWING ITS MENU OPTIONS COMPLETELY ON ITS OWN. THE TELEVISION IS PRETTY MUCH COMPLETELY UNRESPONSIVE TO THE REMOTE CONTROL EVEN AFTER PUTTING IN NEW BATTERIES AND RESETING THE DEVICE BY PRESSING ALL THE BUTTONS WHILE THE BATTS WERE NOT YET IN (AT THE SUGGESTION OF THE TECH SUPPORT GUY). I HAVE EVEN TRIED UNPLUGING THE TELEVISION FOR HOURS AT A TIME AND NOTHING CHANGES. THE OWNERS MANUAL SAYS TO PRESS RECALL, EXIT, OR POWER ON THE REMOTE BUT LIKE I SAID THE TELEVISION IS UNRESPONSIVE TO THE REMOTE. IT ALSO MENTIONED PRESSING RECALL ON THE TV SET BUT I DON'T SEE A RECALL BUTTON. ANY SUGGESTIONS?

    My tv is a Toshiba 32A33 or 32A43. It is stuck on demo mode and I have tried to stop it but it is going on 4 weeks now.Sometimes it will stop on it's own, but not for more than a few minutes.I have tried new batteries, I have unplugged it for hours at a time, I have gone into menu and demo mode and pressed "stop". It is not responsive to the remote menu or the TV menu. My television is a 2003 Toshiba 32A33 or 32A43.Why are so many people having problems with this??? I don't want to pay for a new TV just yet. I am hoping someone knows how to solve this problem. ??

    Same thing here. The television is about 200 lbs. (huge). Can't ship it out anywhere at a reasonable price. Anyone have any answers?

I had the same problem...was told to unplug the TV for one minute, this resets it. Within an hour the menu started again. Then I was told to UNPLUG the TV for 4 hours...this worked and menu screen hasn't come up since! Try it!

Toshiba 32A42A - Menu options pop up all by themself, and the TV is making its own choices. Can this be fixed or do I call a Preist for an exercism or just get rid of it ?


I had the exact same problem yesterday. It took me 1 hour and 45 minutes to find a solution. Here is the solution: It is not a stuck button or the television being 'posessed' that is resulting in the menu cycling. It is the fact that the television is in the DEMO mode. I was able to read the manual for this television online at the Toshiba website. On page 30 it states 'To stop the DEMO mode press 'recall', ''exit', or 'power'. Unfortunately the 'recall', and 'exit' button are on the original remote which I no longer have. The power button on my model is broken. I use the cable box to 'turn on the television'. In reality, the TV is never off, it is just showing a black screen when the cable box and DVD player is off. I suspect this defect in the power button has occured on other TV's experiencing this problem. I was able to push the broken power button to the inside and side of the television casing exposing a round circle that the power button pushes when the power button is not broken. I pushed this small circle to turn the television off. After about 5 seconds I pushed the button again and the television went on without the annoying menu popping up. Just unplugging the television and plugging the television back in does not work. You need to be able to push the power button, or one of the other 2 buttons on the remote previously mentioned.
Also on page 30 it explains how to activate the DEMO mode. It's not too hard to accidentally do, especially when you have kids pushing buttons haphazardly.
I hope this helps someone outthere in cyberspace! Kevin

Tv has black square in right bottom of screen


Hit the set up button on the TV.
You'll see options to change the language. The last option is to put the TV in "Demo Mode."
Put the TV in Demo mode, when the first screen appears, "Welcome to...." the PIP will disappear.
Hit exit before the screen moves to the "Menu." If you miss it, watch the demo once--it will restart--and hit the exit button the next time you see the "Welcome to" message.

I just did this and it worked for me - i hope it works for you

Stuck in demo mode


I had the same problem. Was told to unplug the set for 1 minute but it still was stuck in menu screen scrolling. So I was told to unplug the TV for 4 hours, it resets it I guess because it worked! Try it!

I have not worked on this model of set, but on many TV models, you can get it out of the demo mode by holding down the menu button for at least 10 seconds or longer.

If this does not work call the tech support for your set. They should have a definate answer. It is also possible that there is a fault condition with the set, and it is not properly responding to the front panel controls to be able to be put out of the demo mode. But, this is not a common type of fault.

I just found a solution elsewhere on this site...
In order to make the Demo Mode stop, you should press Volume Up and Channel Up together, and hold for four seconds. This worked for my mom's tv, I hope it works for you, mooone (and everyone else, too).
