I was recently gifted a Veon 50" LED TV Model SRO9110-B.


Being the clever human being i am i decided to do a factory reset.


There now seems to be what i can only assume is a Demo bar, or some kind of Store mode running along the bottom of my screen.


If anyone know's how to turn this off it'd be appreciated.

Fair enough you did a factory reset, but it's not much of a demo mode is it?
It looks like a display fault.
Does it display anything else that makes you think it's a demo mode?

Yep, this ^

 

We have several Veons in our house. Never seen a store mode option on any of them. That looks like screen damage to me...

If you put "horizontal band tv" into a youtube search you will probably see something pretty similar to your display.
There are a few suggestions at possible attempts to fix it - but obviously there is electrical danger.

Factory resets in some TVs resets to unworkable settings. Older Sonys were effectively bricked by a factory reset.

Can you get back into the service menu (or anything else)?

Maybe try using a different input (vga) at start up with nothing else connected?
