Here comes the most satisfying part: turning off the demo loop! Simply choose the “Off” option to disable the demo mode. Take a moment to enjoy the peace and quiet without that never-ending demo playing in the background. Ah, bliss!

When you walk into a store and see a display of Sony TVs, you’re actually looking at the demo mode. It’s like a sneak peek of what the TV can do, designed to grab your attention. But when you bring the TV home and want to use it for everyday life, the demo mode can be a bit frustrating. It puts limits on what you can do and it’s just not meant for regular use.

So, here’s how you can turn off the demo mode on your Sony TV.

Which Model Do You Have?

Unfortunately, turning off the demo mode on Sony TVs is not a one-size-fits-all solution. It actually depends on the specific model of your TV. But don’t worry, it’s still possible to turn off the demo mode regardless of which Sony TV you have.

For Sony TVs with Android

Sony TVs with Android may not be the top-of-the-line models, but they are definitely popular. If you have an Android Sony TV, here’s how you can turn off the demo mode.

First, grab your Sony remote and press the Home button. This will bring up the main screen. From there, select Settings. Within the Settings menu, find and choose Device Preferences, and then go to Retail mode settings. Here, you’ll find options for Picture reset mode and Demo mode. Make sure to set both of these settings to Off.

If your Android Sony TV is running version 8.0 or an earlier version, go to the Retail mode settings. Here, you’ll be able to turn off the Picture reset mode and Demo mode settings.

WxxxB/XxxxB Series

Hey there! Grab your remote and give it a little love by pressing the Home button. This magical moment will transport you to the fabulous Home screen. See that little icon up in the corner? That’s the Settings icon. Go ahead and make your way over there. Now, in the Settings menu, you’ll find a couple of options: Preferences and System Settings. Which one you see depends on your TV model. If you’re lucky enough to have the Preferences option, click on that and find the Shop-front Display Setting. Once you’re there, all you need to do is turn off the Picture Reset Mode and say goodbye to the Demo Mode.

But what if your model has the System Settings option instead? No worries! Just head straight to the Shop-front Display Setting.

W5xxD/WD60x/W60xD/WD65x/W65xD/WD75x/W75xD Series

Uh-oh! Unfortunately, for all those fancy models listed above, turning off the demo mode from the settings is not an option. Don’t fret, my friend. We’ll just have to resort to a good old factory reset.

If you can bring up the Home menu using your trusty remote control, press the amazing Home button and journey into the magical world of Settings. From there, you’ll want to choose System Settings, followed by the inviting Customer Support. Here you’ll find the mystical Factory Settings. Prepare yourself for a big decision and click on OK to bring back those sweet factory settings.

Now, if your Sony TV model doesn’t allow remote access to the Home screen, things are about to get interesting. Ready for a challenge?

First things first, unplug that power cord from the outlet. But don’t be too hasty; let it sit there for a whole minute. Now, plug that cord back into the outlet and watch for the magic to happen. If the TV decides to play hard-to-get and doesn’t turn on by itself, well, take matters into your own hands and turn it on. Be patient and give the TV a minute to start up. You’ve got this!

Alright, here’s what you need to do. First, let’s get your Sony TV properly set up.

Grab your remote and press and hold the Up Arrow button. While you’re still holding that button, press the power button on the TV. Once you see an indicator appear in the bottom-left corner of the screen, you can let go of the Up Arrow button. Now, the setup screen should pop up. Just follow the onscreen instructions to get everything all set.

Now, turning off the demo mode may be a bit different depending on your Sony TV model and type. But don’t worry, this guide covers most, if not all, Sony TV models.
