Sony 32" Bravia TV in demo or display mode?

Sorry if this string of a bit off the beaten track.
I have recently bought a 32" Sony Bravia TV KDL-32P3550.
It appears to be set on a demonstration setting as every minute or so a two vertical strips of images appear on the screen , one on each side.
The images show the features the TV has enabled within its self. e.g. Freeview, digital, USB etc. There 6 - 8 or so each side of the screen stacked on top of each other. On the r.h. side the top image is a Sony Beaver logo image.
I cant find a way of getting rid of these annoying images for good. Any button on the remote clears them but only for a minute or so. If left the images disappear but only to reappear a minute or so later. I can't see anything in the menu to sort the problem out.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

The only reason the TV would be in Demo mode is it has already been set-up by some one or that it could have been used on display in the shop. Did you buy this TV as new or ex display.

I can not find the user Manual on the Sony web site so would suggest contacting the shop you purchased it from.

As John B you may need to do a factory reset not sure if this information would be in the Manual.

many thanks, yes it was the last one bought from a supermarket special offer. It was the one on display.
Going back to factory settings sorted it. Thanks again
