You should be able to turn off the demo mode by using the service code to turn it off.

Unfortunately, I have no idea what the service code for that particular model is.

Basically, it's a set of button presses that, done correctly, will give you full access to the players firmware. I have the steps to do it for the A840 series, but not that exact model.

Hopefully, someone here will have the service code. I know it sucks having to wait for an answer, but sometimes, the people that know what to do aren't able to post right away. Please, be patient and hopefully someone here will be able to help you. If no one does, you still have the option to take it back.

thanks for the answer i went back to the store which i bought it and these IDIOTS sorry for my language but i am really pissed didnt want to take it back becouse i opened the box and and it wasnt sealed anymore i had to bring theplayer as i bought it.I wanted to argue but for my lack the sony had a little scratch i guess i must ve dropped it somehow and they found the perfect ecxuse not to take it back and give me another one .The funny thing is that the tecknician on the store said that it was one of the sellers fault becouse she gave me the demo version and not the original so they had to change it but they DIDNT....
Now i have to go to sony and hope they wont charge me couse i have the receipt but will they be able to do it???
if someone here have a solution please tell me couse i am ungry as hell and the player doesnt last for 50 hours but for less than 24 couse the brightness is on full and i cannot f"$$$ change it

Hey there,
have you solved your problem?
I also had the problem of the "demo mode"...
so i called Sony Support in Germany. And they told me to enter the following key sequence which turns off the "demo code":

Turn on the "Hold" button.
Five times left button, Five times Play&Pause (the big round button in the middle), Five times right button.
Then turn off the "Hold" button.

After trying this combination, the player should restart at once. And the annoying "Demo" on the right side of the bottom is gone!!!

Hope this can help u as well.
