if you get a service man to come out and look at the tv there are three capacitors at the top of the power supply that look like they are about to pop replace and the tv will wotk fine. they cost about two dollars each

SOURCE: red light blinking

The blinking light is a POST (power-on self-test) diagnostic code indicating a serious problem preventing the TV from completing it's start-up. You may get the POST codes from your user documentation or sometimes the Mfrs website.

SOURCE: Insignia NS-32LCD will not turn on.

I bought a 32' LCD TV made from insignia and it will not turn on. It was a 'open box item' now it is 15 months old- 3 months past warranty and it is completely finished. It's something to remember about Best Buy products. They are often pieces of junk. Isignia and Best Buy both have unavailable customer support, the local store transferred me from sales to Geek Squad- after Geek Squad said they don't do TV's I was transferred to a line I let ring for 2 minutes and the phone was never answered. I have been going to Best Buy instead of Circuit City but this has concerned me enough to not spend money at Best Buy anymore.

SOURCE: My Insignia NS-LCD32 TV won't power on. The remote has good batteries, the outlet has power etc. Insignia says to unplug it it for a few seconds and then plug it back in. I tried that multiple times w

The power surges have probably blown the fuse in the power supply board. This may not be the only problem.If you are still under warranty, you will need to have it serviced at a service center. If not You will need to find a repair person or center to open the unit and test it for you. This television and all your electronic equipment should be protected with surge protectors. The reason is your power company has problem with power outages and this will damage your equipment. There is no built in self defense for this equipment due to the huge variants involved with power companies. You should call Insignia and ask them where you can find a authorized service center. You can call the Insignia customer support at this telephone number 1-877-467-4289. Tell them the model number of your television and the problem you have had with its failure to turn on.They will be able to help you find a service center to test and repair your television. I hope this information helps you with your problem.

Red light blinking

When it popped something went, you likely will not see it as this usually is a part that is covered with a metal heatsink, that aside either open it and look for signs on the power board including puffy caps or if not able to safely do that get an estimate here.

not really any way around this, someone has to at least look and then use test equipment to see if voltages etc exist---the nature of these sets (all brands) is they only sell the circuit boards.

Although we would not be able to assist you with power issue you're having with your TV, I can assure you that the issue with your new HD Insignia TV not turning on has nothing to do with the DISH Network receiver you have connected to it.

How to remove the back from Insignia NS-32LCD?

I unscrewed all the screws in the back, detached the tv from the base, and was able to get the back off. I ordered a new power supply board and will install it to see if it fixes the problem with the tv (won't turn on, insignia light alternates between red and blue). I didn't notice any problems with "swollen" capacitors, so if the new power board fixes the problem I'll update this website.
