My Hitachi L26D205 tv is stuck in demo mode, how do I turn it off?

There's a sub menu along the bottom that talks about the features the TV has and it'll go away for a couple seconds only to pop up again. I've gone through all the settings and I've no clue how to turn it off. I tried unplugging it and it didn't work. Do I have to reset it and how do I do that? Please, I'd really appreciate some help here and thank you for your time.

    Try pressing the INPUT/EXIT button on the side of the TV chassis.if that doesn't work try a factory reset Press MENU then SETUP Reset TV Settings This function allows you to Reset all TV Settings to the original factory settings on all modes during the next 2. Press the SELECT button or CURSOR PAD to select Reset The Software. 3. Use the CURSOR PAD to access the Reset TV Settings option. 4. Select the "YES" option to Reset ALL the TV Settings during the main power on/off.

    The real trick is to set the input to TV and then go to the setup option on the menu. Once there go to the auto setup and you will be able to turn off the E-POP Demo.

    1)Try to fix it manually first & see it works. It should work.[It seems to me, it is not resetting]

    2)Now program it (Remote control) in default position,it should work.

    3)If not contact the Company and ask for help.They will be glad to help.Thank you.

    Not really. Your best bet is to get a OneForAll universal remote to access the menu.
