Magnavox - stuck in DEMO mode!

My Magnavox model19PSC5 0121 is stuck in a demo mode. I cannot turn the power on or off, and NONE of the buttons work, nor does the remote control.
This happened once before, but being an old codger, I cannot recall how I got out of it.

I have unplugged the TV, and plugged it back in, multiple times and the TV comes on by itself!

The demo mode is a program that continues rolls-over and starts again, it demonstrates all of the featuers of the TV. I cannot locate the user's manual, or any reset buttons, etc. HELP!

With the set ON. Press the volume up AND volume down at the same time.


Press the channel up AND channel down at the same time.

It WORKED. I've been messin' with this thing trying this and that and FINALLY got the bright idea to look it up on the internet! Don't know why I didn't think of that before; I usually look EVERYTHING up on the internet.
