You need to go into the TV menu and turn it off.

Press HOME, then select the wording > Picture & Display > Picture Adjustments > Motionflow > the desired option.

Good luck and let me know if this helps!

    taking a closer look, i should include a few more details... the model is actually KDL-46V5100 (not 40V5100) not sure if that matters.

    also, i have lost the actual TV remote (just have the universal remote), and don't have a "HOME".

    I did find "motionflow" by going to MENU then PICTURE then ADVANCED SETTINGS then MOTIONFLOW and turning it to off. that did not work.

    I found two other possible solutions to try...
    1) Turn the unit On. Press SYSTEM MENU. Press Up/Down arrows repeatedly until DEMO appears, then press or >. Press Up/Down arrows to select a setting DEMO ON or DEMO OFF. Press (The setting is made). Press SYSTEM MENU. The system turns off.

    2) Press and HOLD (5 sec) the MENU button located on the SIDE of the TV. A message will appear; (Demo Mode: OFF).

My 7" Android 4.4 kitkat tablet just recently started to display the word "DEMO" in big red letters on every screen. How do I get rid of it?

Go to the system settings and look through them to see if there is an option for demo mode. Also, go to Settings>Apps>All, and see if there is an app called "Demo." If there is, tap it and tap Disable, if possible.

Get kw-nt500hdt out of demo mode

Hello Connie, Thank you for your question.
The JVC unit you have installed can detect when the car is in motion. If you are stuck in the DEMO mode start the vehicle and drive a short distance, once the system detects motion it should remove itself from the DEMO mode. I hope this helps =)

Its a zeepad 7.0 android tablet

Where did you get the tablet? I believe you purchased a store demo tablet. If you you browse zeepad's website you can probably restore the firmware and get rid of store demo mode.
