Question about Toshiba 32A33 32" TV

Demo mode wont shut off

My uncle's tv is about 4 years old. on power up , everything is working fine. about 5-7 minutes later after tv warms up, starts to cycle through demo mode on screen. I managed to turn if off through menu and even take batteries out of remote, yet demo mode still re-appeared. I saw other problems on this page mention remote sensor in the TV and microprossor. anyone see this problem b4. Should I try the remote sensor assembly on the TV first. Don't want to start throwing parts at it until I can either rule out or prove something is at fault. Anyone know if I can just disconnect the remote sensor inside to see if my screen demo goes away ?whithout causing harm to other components inside ? many thanks in advance, mike

    HOW DO YOU GET TO DEMO MODE IF YOU CAN'T CONTROL THE TELEVISSION...THERE MUST BE A BUTTON OR SEQUENCE OF BUTTONS TO PRESS AND HOLD TO SHUT THIS FEATURE OFF...MY T.V. IS STILL CYCLING BETWEEN T.V. INPUT 1,2,3, IN EVERY LANGUAGE...

    How can you just turn the demo mode off when you can't get any of the buttons on the remote to respond, or the buttons on the TV to respond? I am having the same problem.

Go to the demo mode and press off. I just did this after 2 frustrating days of demo mode. It went off instantly when I did this

Ok , let us know if the " hold menu button in for 20 seconds " works. I'll pass this on to my uncle also .

Some friends of ours has this problem also. I've been trying to find a solution over the internet for a few hours now. I came across one page that said to hold the menu button on the front of the tv in for 20 seconds and that should fix it. guess we'll see.

I have this same problem, just started 2 days ago. Changed batteries in remote and everything - driving me nuts- now i cannot change channel or adjust volume! I powered off TV, took batteries out of remote, turned back on and now still stuck. I think we bought junk!
