I currently don't have a remote so I tried using the button the bottom right hand corner and I have limited options so I don't know how to get out of it.

Managed to switch to demo mode in the dark last night with the single button on bottom (no remote) so there HAS to be a way to do it, just trying to figure it out is the thing.

Hold power button for 10-15 seconds. TV will power up. Keep holding power button until screen shows standard on screen

turn the tv on. without the menu popped up, press and hold the button. that's it. the menu will pop up, just keep holding it for about 5 seconds. =/ it happens sometimes when trying to turn the tv off. so annoying.

We fixed another Samsung TV with this problem WITHOUT a remote by plugging a USB keyboard into the back of the TV. This allowed us to control the TV and get it out of demo/retail mode.

Just did it over the phone with samsung representative

First make sure your tv source is on TV then use buttons to go into menu then once in menu go to setup>plug&play>start. This will allow you to set up the tv again and choose HOME USE to get tv out of retail demo use
If this doesnt work for your tv call samsung support so you can find out your tvs model number and find the roght way to do it with your tv

Everyone on here is wrong.

I tried every suggestion with this model and it did not work. Instead I went to the back of the tv and unplugged the “DIGITAL AUDIO OUT (OPTICAL) cord. Demo mode was switched off and it worked perfectly w no remote.

I just did what was suggested here (hold power), and it worked fine.
