Question about Insignia IS-LCDTV32 32 in. Television
I have had the tv for 2 years now and I get a dark ghost like black bar down the right side of the picture. I can notice it only when the picture is dark you can see like the black bar down the side. I don't know if it's a image burn or something but it's only a small bar down the right side about an inch long. My warranty is over so I can't take it back to Best Buy with having to pay out of my pocket. does anyone else have this problem? I see Insignia disconntiued this model probably because of problems....

Had what sounds like a similar issue. Could hear the sound and see the picture on the outside edges of a black box that took up most of the screen. T.V. was still under warranty and they said that they could not fix it, just replaced it. however, 3 months later my 27in won't turn on and keeps cycling through even after I have unplugged it. Good luck!

This is most likely due to 2 problems -Temperature or a bust capacitor,
1. There is a simple trick...just warm the back of the TV with a hair dryer for 5-7 mins after you have unplugged the TV. Look for the little areas of holes in the back panel of TV. Use these as your guide at where to use hairdryer., but don't hold the dryer too close(say 5-6inches away). (Make sure the dryer is on High heat). If the TV doesn't turn on after you have heated it up (like it tries to come on but then turns off) you need to unplug the TV again, this resets it. And repeat those steps till it works. Reseting the TV after it fails to turn on is the key. Also, just leave the TV on. Don't turn in off. Since it is LCD, it doesn't take much power...only a few bucks extra a month for your utility bill.
2. You can also try this..if you unplug the TV, and hold in the power button while plugging it back in, this will reset the TV, and sometimes it comes on.
3. If you want to go in for a long term solution, you can easily replace the whole power board (should be about $20 or so), or just change the faulty capacitors. You can make out which are faulty, because their caps will be swollen on top. Here's a pic
Check the specifications of the faulty capacitors, and get the replacements from your local electronics shop. If you are comfortable with this, you can use a pair of needle nose pliers to G-E-N-T-L-Y pull out the defunct capacitors. Once that is done, solder in the new capacitors carefully. If are unsure how to do this, try to get a friend who knows how to do this kinda stuff do it for you.
PS. The capacitors are usually 680 - 1000 micro farad and 35V. however, if you dont find 35V, you could use a 50V as well. They will be slightly larger, but you should be able to get them to fit in.
You can buy the capacitors online from HERE or HERE if you wish..They cost $0.068 - $0.85 each depending on the model.
Hope that helps...Should you have any further questions, please feel free to post them here.

Its unfortunately a bad LCD panel. Even though the warranties for these TVs has expired, you should contact the manufacturer because there may be a hidden warranty ( when a manufacturer knows of an issue with a limited number of TVs and decides to quietly take care of those consumers who contact them.)
Be prepared for some resistance from the first person you speak with. Persistance pays off when dealing with the customer relations dept.s of large corporations.

I sincerely hope you purchased the extended warranty. I know many people who have had the exact problem 1 month or so out of warranty. The TV will not last longer than 1 year. I suggest that you have the TV replaced. Insignia has terrible customer service and it is frustrating to deal with them, but I suggest you call and make a complaint about their product. At least this way, maybe they'll consider recalling their televisions.
