Stuck in demo mode / demo lock

My Sony BDV-E280 Home Theater System, which has worked well for just over a year has some how now gone in demo mode and displaying demo lock on the display screen. Is there a fix to remove this as it significantly reduces the functionality of the unit.

Put the unit in dvd mode. then press and hold the stop and eject buttons. The display should read "demo off". Then the tray should operate normally.

SOURCE: Lock and Demo Play Display

while the demo is playing you must press "Play"and "Stop" buttons, then display shows DEMO OFF and you can now take the DEMO CD out.
In some models you need to turn off the power and turn it on while pressing the EJECT Butoom.

SOURCE: Sony DVD Home Theater System remote control code

I have the same system and one of my dogs got to the remote. I have a philips PMDVR8/PDVR8 universal remote. I was able to get the dav-hdx265 to turn on/off and do volume up and down by using code 0200. I have not been able to get the DVD functionality to work yet, but I will post if I do.

I don't have a Sony HCDX1, so if this doesn't work, please do not rate me down.

Push the PLAY and STOP buttons (at the same time) and hold them for about ten seconds. This should get you out of DEMO mode.

Power the unit off, then back on. If the display now says LOCKED, then press the PLAY and STOP buttons (at the same time) again to unlock.

If this does work, please rate it Solved, so others can use this solution. Thanks!

Hard-code the subs with mkvtoolnix etc.(supposedly 10 min. job no quality loss mkv file it makes) or bite the bullet like me. Use Format Factory or any other free converter, and give the Sony a tried and true xvid avi. That way you can watch it without subs too.

My home theatre unit bdv-L600 will not eject the DVD as it says it is locked


I think your best bet is to remove the top of the unit and see what has caused it to lock. Removing the CD once the top is off may fix your problem.
