In the conventional electronic device, the electronic device enters a state of performing a special
operation such as demonstration operation by inputting a certain command by the main body
key or the remote control, etc. To clear the state, perform the same operation again. It was
customary to control. Therefore, the electronic device set to perform the special operation in the
in-store sales needs to be returned to the initial state without forgetting the clerk of the sales
outlet when selling to the user. If this task is forgotten, the electronic device may be handed over
to the user while being set to perform a special operation, and the user may suffer from an
unexpected disadvantage.
[0004]
As a conventional technique for causing an electronic device to perform a special operation, for
example, a technique of switching to a demonstration mode when a digital camera is installed in
a dedicated cradle is disclosed (for example, see Patent Document 1 below). This document
discloses, for example, a technique for continuing the operation in the demonstration mode even
after the digital camera is placed in a dedicated cradle and then separated. Further, a technology

[0031]
(Hardware Configuration of Electronic Device 100) First, the hardware configuration of the
electronic device 100 to which the present invention can be applied will be described in detail
with reference to FIG.
FIG. 1 is a block diagram showing the hardware configuration of an electronic device 100 to
which the present invention can be applied.
[0032]
As shown in FIG. 1, the electronic device 100 to which the present invention can be applied
includes a connection detection unit 110, a mode selection unit 120, and a device connection
unit 130.
[0033]
The electronic device 100 is not particularly limited as long as the additional device 200 can be
connected.
The electronic device 100 may be, for example, an audio device, a video recording device, a video
display device, a digital camera, a mobile phone, a personal computer, a home game machine,
various digital home appliances, or other devices.
[0034]
09-05-2019
8
The additional device 200 is not particularly limited as long as it is connected to the electronic
device 100 and functions.
For example, when the electronic device 100 is an audio device, the additional device 200
includes an audio output device such as a speaker or a headphone, a video output device such as
a liquid crystal display, or a recording medium on which music data and the like are recorded. It
may be done.
Further, the additional device 200 may be configured by a device capable of visually notifying
the user of various information, such as a display device such as a lamp.
[0035]
Further, the additional device 200 may be a device sold together with the electronic device, or
may be a separately purchased device.
The additional device 200 may be a dedicated product or a general-purpose product.

[0037]
In addition, the connection detection unit 110 may operate to further detect configuration
information such as the type and combination of functions of the connected additional device
200.
The connection detection unit 110 may operate to obtain configuration information of the
additional device by performing bidirectional communication between the connection detection
unit 110 and the additional device 200.
[0038]
The mode selection unit 120 selects which of the special operation mode and the standard
operation mode the electronic device 100 operates.
The mode selection unit 120 selects the standard operation mode when the additional device
200 is not connected to the device connection unit 130.

[0040]
In addition, the mode selection unit 120 may change the operation method of the special
operation mode according to the type and combination of functions of the additional device. For
example, when the electronic device is an audio device and the additional device is a 5.1 channel
audio signal compatible speaker, the mode selection unit performs a demonstration operation of
outputting a 5.1 channel audio signal to the speaker as a special operation. It can be selected. In
addition, when the electronic device is an audio device and a microphone and a speaker are
connected as an additional device, it is possible to select a demonstration operation that
simultaneously performs the music reproduction function and the sound collecting / speaking
function as a special operation. . Thus, it is possible to select a more effective special operation
according to the type and combination of the additional device.

The device connection unit 130 can connect the additional device 200. The connection method is
not particularly limited, and any of a wired method and a wireless method may be used. For
example, if the electronic device 100 is an audio device, the device connection unit 130 may be
configured of an audio output terminal and a video output terminal. Further, the electronic device
100 and the additional device 200 may be configured to perform two-way communication.
[0042]
In the case of the wired system, for example, connection can be made in a generally used format
such as USB (Universal Serial Bus) or IEEE 1394. When the additional device is a video display
device, for example, it may be connected by an HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface)
cable.
[0043]
In the case of the wireless system, connection can be made using various communication modes
such as infrared communication, visible light communication, RF communication, Bluetooth, IEEE
802.11a / b / g, and the like.

11
[0044]
The electronic device 100 may further include a storage unit 140 and a command detection unit
150.
[0045]
The storage unit 140 is formed of, for example, a semiconductor memory such as an EEPROM
(Electronically Erasable and Programmable Read Only Memory).
When the input of the start command is detected in the command detection unit 150, the storage
unit 140 stores that the start command has been input.
When the command detection unit 150 detects the input of the release command for releasing
the special operation mode, the storage unit 140 resets the state in which the start command is
input. In addition, the storage unit 140 can provide the mode selection unit 120 with information
as to whether or not the start command is input. The storage unit 140 may record information
other than command input. The storage unit 140 is preferably configured to keep storage even
when the electronic device is in operation as well as when the operation is stopped.
[0046]
The command detection unit 150 detects an input of a start command for operating the
electronic device 100 in the special operation mode and an input of a release command for
canceling the special operation mode of the electronic device 100. Also, the command detection
unit 150 transmits the input of the command to the storage unit 140. The command detection
unit 150 can be operated to detect the start command and the release command input by the
input unit 160. The command detection unit 150 may operate to detect the start command and
the release command input by another method other than the input unit 160. The command
detection unit 150 is preferably configured to continue to operate not only when the electronic
device is operating but also when the operation is stopped.
[0047]
09-05-2019
12
The electronic device 100 generally includes an arithmetic device such as a central processing
unit (CPU), a read only memory (ROM), a random access memory (RAM), an EEPROM, and a
storage device. The electronic device 100 is configured to operate the connection detection unit
110, the mode selection unit 120, the device connection unit 130, the storage unit 140, the
command detection unit 150, the input unit 160 and the like by these arithmetic devices and the
like.
[0048]
The electronic device 100 may further include an input unit 160.
[0049]
The input unit 160 is an input device for inputting a start command for operating the electronic
device 100 in the special operation mode and a release command for releasing the special
operation mode of the electronic device 100.
Since the operation in the special operation mode may start contrary to the user's intention if the
user inputs the command by mistake, the operation which the user usually does not use is
allocated to the start command and the release command. Is preferred. When the electronic
device 100 is an audio device, for example, the start command is input by pressing the power
button and the reproduction button simultaneously for a predetermined time or more, and it is
determined that the release command is input when the same operation is performed. It is also
good. In addition, a dedicated input device may be provided on the back of the audio device or
the like.
[0050]
The electronic device 100 may further include a secondary power supply 170.
[0051]
The secondary power supply 170 can operate the storage unit 140 and the command detection
unit 150 when the external power supply 300 and the electronic device 100 are not connected.
09-05-2019
13
The secondary power supply 170 can be, for example, a rechargeable battery. The secondary
battery is preferably, for example, a rechargeable battery (secondary battery) that can be driven
for 12 hours or more.
[0052]
If the secondary power source 170 can be driven for 12 hours or more, the storage unit 140 and
the command detection unit 150 can be operated to adapt to the actual production line and sales
of a store. In the actual production line and sales of a store, the connection between the
electronic device 100 and the additional device 200 is released and shipped or sold within 12
hours after the connection between the external power supply 300 and the electronic device 100
is released. Is most. Therefore, even after the connection with the external power supply 300 is
released, it can be detected that the connection between the additional device 200 and the
electronic device 100 has been released, so the special operation mode is automatically made
without inputting the release command. Can be terminated. Therefore, when it becomes
unnecessary to set the special operation mode, the electronic device 100 automatically operates
in the standard operation mode.
[0053]
(Hardware Configuration Example of Audio Device) Subsequently, a hardware configuration
example in the case where the electronic device 100 to which the present invention can be
applied is an audio device will be described in detail with reference to FIGS. 2 to 4.
[0054]
In the audio device shown in FIG. 2, a button 162 is an input device for turning on or off the
main power, and a button 164 is an input device for starting or pausing music playback.
In the audio apparatus of FIG. 2, for example, pressing the button 162 and the button 164
simultaneously for a predetermined time or more can be regarded as a command input. For
example, when the button 162 and the button 164 are simultaneously pressed for a
predetermined time or more, it can be determined that the start command has been input, and
when the same operation is performed again, it can be determined that the release command is
input.
09-05-2019

[0055]
The configuration example shown in FIG. 3A shows a state in which the stereo speakers 201 and
202 as additional devices are connected to the audio apparatus 101, and the connection is
maintained. The configuration example shown in FIG. 3B shows a state in which stereo speakers
203 and 204 as additional devices and a microphone 205 as additional devices are connected to
the audio apparatus 102 and the connection is maintained. The configuration example shown in
FIG. 3C shows a state in which the stereo speakers 205 and 206 as additional devices and the
cartridge 207 as additional devices are connected to the audio apparatus 103 and the connection
is maintained. An additional device is connected to the audio apparatus of FIGS. 3A to 3C, and the
connection state of the additional device is maintained. Therefore, in the case of these
configuration examples, when the start command is input, the mode selection unit can select the
special operation mode as long as the release command is not input.
[0056]
In the configuration example shown in FIG. 4D, the stereo speakers 208 and 209 as additional
devices are connected to the audio device 204, but the connection is released and the additional
device is not connected to the audio device 204. Indicates the status. In the configuration
example shown in FIG. 4E, the stereo device 210 and 211 as additional devices and the
microphone 212 as additional device are connected to the audio device 205, but the connection
of the microphone 212 is released. Show the condition. In the configuration example shown in
FIG. 4F, the stereo device 213 and 214 as additional devices and the cartridge 215 as additional
device are connected to the audio device 206, but the connection of the cartridge 215 is
released. Show the condition. In the case of the configuration examples shown in FIGS. 4D to 4F,
since the connection between the audio device and the additional device is released, the mode
selection unit automatically terminates the operation in the special operation mode, and the
standard operation mode is performed. Can be selected. The audio devices of the configuration
examples shown in FIGS. 4 (e) and 4 (f) maintain the connection with some of the additional
devices, so as described above, the operation method of the special operation mode is It may be
configured to change.
[0057]
(Specific Example 1 of Mode Selection Operation) Subsequently, referring to FIG. 5, the mode
09-05-2019
15
selection operation in the case where the electronic device 100 includes the connection detection
unit 110, the mode selection unit 120, and the device connection unit 130 will be described in
detail. explain. FIG. 5 is a flowchart showing the mode selection operation in this case.
[0058]
In the electronic device operating as shown in FIG. 5, when the power is turned on, the mode
selection unit starts processing (step S10). The mode selection unit selects the standard
operation mode if the start command of the special operation mode is not given to the electronic
device, and shifts to the next step if the start command of the special operation mode is given
(step S11). ). The electronic device is usually designed such that a state in which a start command
of the special operation mode is not given is an initial state. Subsequently, the mode selection
unit selects the special operation mode when the additional device is connected to the device
connection unit, and selects the standard operation mode when the additional device is not
connected to the device connection unit (step S12). ).
[0059]
In any of the case where the special operation mode is selected (step S13) and the case where the
standard operation mode is selected (step S14), the mode selection unit returns to the state
where the process can be started. That is, the electronic device is configured to be able to change
the mode not only when the power is turned on but also while the electronic device is operating.
The processing (step S10) of the mode selection unit during the operation of the electronic
device may be set to start when a command is input or when there is a change in the connection
status of the additional device, or may be performed at predetermined time intervals. It may be
set to
[0060]
For example, the electronic device operating as shown in FIG. 5 is set to operate in the special
operation mode, the power is turned off while maintaining the connection of the additional
device, and then the power is turned on. The operation in the special operation mode can be
resumed automatically without having to do this. In addition, if the power of the electronic device
is turned on and the connection detection unit is in an operable state and the connection of the
additional device is released, the operation in the special operation mode is automatically ended,
09-05-2019
16
so even without inputting the release command. It can be operated in a standard operating mode.
[0061]
Subsequently, a mode selection operation in the case where the electronic device 100 includes
the connection detection unit 110, the mode selection unit 120, and the device connection unit
130 and operates as illustrated in FIG. 5 will be described with reference to FIG. FIG. 6 is an
explanatory view showing mode selection when the electronic device 100 includes the
connection detection unit 110, the mode selection unit 120, and the device connection unit 130.
[0062]
In FIG. 6, the standard operation mode is selected when the start command of the special
operation mode is not given to the electronic device or the additional device is not connected to
the device connection unit. In addition, when the start command of the special operation mode is
given to the electronic device and the additional device is connected to the device connection
unit, the special operation mode is selected. It should be noted that the determination as to
whether the start command of the special operation mode is given or the determination as to
whether the additional device is connected to the device connection unit may be performed first.
From the viewpoint of enabling quick start-up of the electronic device, the determination as to
whether or not the start command of the special operation mode is given may be performed first.
[0063]
In the electronic device operating as shown in FIGS. 5 and 6, when the connection detection unit
does not operate and the connection between the additional device and the electronic device is
released, the connection detection unit may detect the connection release of the additional
device. Because it can not, it can not end the operation in the special operation mode
automatically. In this case, the electronic device may be handed over to the user while operating
in the special operation mode. In the following specific example 2a, a case where the electronic
device further includes a storage unit and a command detection unit will be described so as to
eliminate this possibility.
09-05-2019
17
[0064]
(Specific Example 2a of Mode Selection Operation) Subsequently, referring to FIG. 7, in addition
to the connection detection unit 110, the mode selection unit 120, and the device connection
unit 130, the electronic device 100 further includes a storage unit 140. The mode selection
operation in the case of including the command detection unit 150 will be described in detail.
FIG. 7 is a flowchart showing the mode selection operation in this case.
[0065]
In the electronic device operating as shown in FIG. 7, when the power is turned on, the mode
selection unit starts processing (step S20). The mode selection unit selects the standard
operation mode when the input of the start command is not stored in the storage unit, and
selects the special operation mode when the input of the start command is stored in the storage
unit (step S21). .
[0066]
In any of the case where the special operation mode is selected in step S21 (step S22) and the
case where the standard operation mode is selected (step S23), the mode selection unit returns to
the state where the process can be started. Therefore, the electronic device can change the
operation mode not only when the power is turned on but also during the operation of the
electronic device.
[0067]
(Operation of Storage Unit) Subsequently, the operation of the storage unit 140 will be described
in detail with reference to FIG. FIG. 8 is a flowchart showing the operation of the storage unit.
[0068]
09-05-2019
18
When the storage unit starts operation, first, the recording unit is in an initial state where the
input of the start command is not recorded, and stands by until the command detection unit
detects the input of the start command (step S30). When the input of the start command is
detected by the command detection unit (step S31), the recording unit records that the start
command has been input, and stands by until the next command or the like is input (step S32). ).
Subsequently, in the storage unit, when the input of the release command is detected by the
command detection unit, or when the connection detection unit detects that the connection of
the additional device is released, the input of the start command is recorded. The process returns
to the non-existent state (step S33). Thereafter, the storage unit stands by until the command
detection unit detects the input of the start command (step S30).
[0069]
Subsequently, referring to FIG. 9, the electronic device 100 further includes a storage unit 140
and a command detection unit 150 in addition to the connection detection unit 110, the mode
selection unit 120, and the device connection unit 130. The mode selection operation will be
described. FIG. 9 is an explanatory diagram showing mode selection in the case where the
electronic device performs mode selection as shown in the flowchart of FIG. 7 and the storage
unit operates as shown in the flowchart of FIG.
[0070]
In FIG. 9, when the start command of the special operation mode is input and it is not detected
that the additional device is disconnected from the device connection unit, the input of the start
command is stored in the storage unit. , A special operating mode is selected. When the start
command of the special operation mode is not input or when the disconnection of the additional
device is detected from the device connection unit, since the input of the start command is not
stored in the storage unit, the standard operation mode is It is selected.
[0071]
In the electronic device operating as shown in FIG. 9, for example, if the command detection unit
is configured to operate even when the main power is not turned on, the additional device can be
operated even when the main power is not turned on. The disconnection can be detected, and the
input of the storage start command can be automatically reset. Further, the storage unit can store

and hold the state in which the start command is input and the state in which the start command
is not input even when the main power supply of the electronic device is turned off. Therefore,
when the main power of the electronic device is turned off, the electronic device automatically
cancels the connection with the additional device and sells the electronic device without
inputting a command for releasing the special operation mode. Transition to the standard
operating mode, the user will not be disadvantaged.
[0072]
On the other hand, when the connection with the external power supply is released and the
connection detection unit is disconnected when the connection detection unit is not operated, the
electronic device operating as illustrated in FIG. Can not reset. In this case, the electronic device
may be handed over to the user while operating in the special operation mode. Therefore, the
electronic device may further include a secondary power supply, and the connection detection
unit may be configured to detect the disconnection of the additional device even after the
connection with the external power supply is released. The electronic device configured as such
can detect the disconnection of the additional device even when the external power supply is not
connected, and can reset the start command input of the storage unit, so that the operation in the
special operation mode is automatically performed. Can be terminated.
[0073]
Further, when the electronic device operating as shown in FIG. 9 is configured such that the
input of the start command remains semipermanently in the recording unit, for example, the
connection with the additional device is released when the connection detection unit does not
operate. If the release command is not input, the input of the start command remains in the
storage unit. In this case, since the input of the start command remains in the storage unit, the
electronic device may be handed over to the user while operating in the special operation mode.
Therefore, the electronic device may be configured to automatically reset the input information
of the start command stored in the storage unit after a predetermined time has elapsed. In the
following specific example 2b, a case where the storage unit is configured to be automatically
reset after a predetermined time has elapsed will be described.

(Specific Example 2b of Mode Selection Operation) Subsequently, with reference to FIG. 10, the
mode selection operation in the case where the storage unit is configured to reset the start
command after a predetermined time has elapsed will be described. FIG. 10 is an explanatory
view showing mode selection in this case. In FIG. 9 and FIG. 10, it is different whether or not the
storage unit operates to reset the start command after a predetermined time elapses, and the
same operation is performed except the above.
[0075]
In FIG. 10, when the start command of the special operation mode is input and it is not detected
that the additional device is disconnected from the device connection unit, the input of the start
command is stored in the storage unit. , A special operating mode is selected. If the start
command of the special operation mode is not input, or the connection release of the additional
device is detected from the device connection unit, or if the predetermined time has elapsed, the
input of the start command is stored in the storage unit There is no, so the standard operating
mode is selected. In addition, progress of predetermined time can be made into the elapsed time,
for example after the special operation | movement which the electronic device performed most
recently is completed.
[0076]
In the electronic device operating as shown in FIG. 10, for example, when the input of the start
command is stored in the storage unit and the connection detection unit does not operate, the
connection with the additional device is released and the release command is input. Even if not,
the storage unit is automatically reset when a predetermined time elapses. Therefore, when a
predetermined time elapses before reaching the user from the factory or the shop, the input of
the start command in the storage unit is automatically reset, and the electronic device
automatically operates in the standard operation mode. Become. Therefore, it is possible to more
reliably prevent the user from being handed over while the special operation mode is set.
