This was the only helpful thing I have read. I was about ready to scream at the TV. Stupid I know but it nothing was working. This worked immediately! Thank you sooooo much. I don't even have the same model of TV but it's a Megnavox and it worked. This is the best!

A TechLore "Ask the Experts" Question...
My magnovox tv, Model Nbr tp2770c10, went into Demo mode and I can not get it off No Buttons work. I upluged it waited a while, but it's still in that mode
What do I do?
Seems like a simple thing, but with virtually no support information from the Philips website, this can be tricky problem.
To disable the Demo mode, perform the following:
- Turn on the TV.
- Simultaneously hold down the Vol+ and Vol- buttons on the front of the TV. Do not use the remote control.
- Hold for about 6 seconds
- Certain model TVs may turn off, others will not. But in either case, the Demo mode should be disabled.
All should be well after these steps have been followed. Use the discussion page if you have comments or questions regarding this procedure.
NOTE: This won't work with ALL models of Magnavox TVs.

Thanks a million!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It did the trick. I just could not figure this out! Thank you for sharing this great information!!!!!!
Well, for me all the key combination does now is power off. (Last week it worked like it was supposed to according to other messages in this thread.) Now when I power it back on, the demo (or maybe 'demon') is still there, no matter what. I tried it both ways. The combination of the two keys will both power it on and off. The model number is TS 2552 C104.
I thank you, my wife thanks you! Boy, you sure saved us from buying another T.V.
WOW! OMG it worked! thank u soooo much
It worked on my old Phillips 25T200 C101 (Manufactured 1995). The owners manual and remote are long gone, and this was a HUGE HELP. Still not sure how my 3 y/o daughter got it into demo mode in the first place. She's not giving that up easily :-)
I have a Magnavox 15MF170V/17B; the volume switch is a rocker, + or -. Any suggestions on how to do the same thing for this model?
didnt work for me my tv was fine yesterday
holding down volume + - buttons for 6 to 8 sec. did not fix demo problem
model magnavox ts3270b101
any other ideas
