Strange pink overlay/or failure with display

Bought a 32-inch; Insignia tv, plasma, 720p,in Aug.2008. Recently, the screen has an uneven dark pink wash on it--as if someone had lightly wiped part of the screen with pink chalk. Today, the display did not come up when I turned the set on, but showed a dark mix of random colors. The sound was fine. I turned it off, then back on, and it came up but with the pink wash. Have had the same thing happen several times now: first turn on, no display or dark colors, then 2d time fine except for pink. Is the set defective or what? What should be next step? It's only 2 months old and was not a demo, but new in the box. We're on high def DirectTV.

    Okay. Solved my own problem, so maybe this will help someone else. Finally, got a 'geek squad' member from Best Buy to the phone--took four efforts. He suggested that I unplug the HDMI cable and put it back in its slot to reset OR move it to another one of the HDMI slot. I moved it from HDMI-1 and plugged it in HDMI-3, which is on the side. The pink overlay disappeared.

    Incidentally, he suggested that if I had the same problem with every port it was "probably the cable box." Don't know. Just know that moving HDMI cable to different port solved the problem.

Your set was made by LG and probably was assembled in China. Unfortunately, LG's track record isn't very good from what I have seen just from this site and have seen negative comments elsewhere. If you purchased it new, I would be looking for the nearest 'authorized' service center.

The screen has colored vertical lines and becomes to a dark black band about 6 inches of width.The tv is exactly two years old by today.


My 3-year old 52-inch Toshiba flat panel TV (Model # 52RV53U, Serial # AM409000295) developed a display problem (purchased Aug. 2008, manufactured July 2008). Vertical multicolored lines appeared on the screen just left of center. The band of thin vertical bars is 5.5 inches wide. The lines are about 1/16-inch wide. They are stationary, always exactly in same place. They over-ride any other picture on the screen (no transparency). They are there all time even with no video inputs to the TV after the unit is turned on. See picture #1. The TV works well in every other respect, but, obviously, it is annoying to watch the picture with the color band blocking about 1/6 of the picture.

I already swapped out the TCON board with no improvement and replugged the TCON board cables with no improvement.

Most likely it is the flat panel tab bond failure (panel made by Samsung). Further solution updates will be on my Facebook page.

I have a Insignia 32 inch LCD TV Model number NS-LCD32. It recently started displaying no inputs. The backlight comes on but no inputs/ no sound. Green lines display if you press the menu,input, channel...


The first troubleshooting step would be to measure all the voltages from the power supply to the other circuits boards specially the 5 volts going to the main board. If you have the following: Insignia 6HA0112010 Power Supply, check FU502 for open conditions.
If all the voltages appear normal, then the main board should be replace since is hard to find individual components for a component level repair.
Let me know if you need further assistance.

Check all the cable connections while the TV is on, both at the TV, and what the cable is connected to.

I suspect the problem is in the TV, and you'll have to wait for the Geek Squad.

I doubt leaving the TV on caused this, and good thing it happened when it did.

Hold down media and guide for a few seconds.
On TV pick the resolution you want. Your choices are 480i, 480p, 720p, some wide screen resolutions and 1080i.

Red tint on my TV, instead of all colors? Reset doesnt work?


Sounds like the component cables are misplaced. Check that, and report back.
