I had this problem also and holding the menu button did no good for me. I got my answer someplace else it, they called it "EASTER EGG HUNT". You need to press both volume buttons at the same time. It worked for me.

The TV is in Demo mode.  When this happens your remote may be disconnected and you cannot even turn off the TV from the TV power button.  Go to the TV itself...(not the remote)hold down both volume buttons.  You may need to turn off the TV then and turn it on again.  Works like a charm.  It happened to us today.

Hats off to the person who gave the Easter Egg Hunt response. I had/have a Magnavox that went into that display mode and I didn't know what to do until someone at work told me there were reset codes. I came online searching for the link and eventually found this site. I tried holding down menu the button but it did not work. I saw a follow up on this answer selection and saw the other suggestion about holding down both volume buttons and Praise the Lord IT WORKED. THANKS A MILLION for that response I have had this TV sitting around for almost 2 years not wanting to toss it because it still had a great picture. Now thanks to the Easter Egg hunt I don't have to }:o) S/R Art
