Insignia remote will not turn on or off the TV

Installed the NS-DXA1 Converter to my Panasonic TV. The TV is set to channel 3, and I can change channels, increase or decrease volumn and mute the sound, but I cannot turn the TV on or off using the Insignia remote. I have to use the TV remote to do that. How can I correct this problem?

Setting the Remote to control power on your TV is really easy. You just hold down the TV power button and you start pushing UP on the channel button.

    Setting the Remote to control power on your TV is really easy. You just
    hold down the TV power button and you start pushing UP on the channel
    button. It selects different codes from the different manufactures.
    (you don’t see anything on the screen) Once your TV turns off your are
    set. I had to push up maybe 15 times for it to finally work for my JVC

I own an Insignia flat screen tv, NS-LCD27, & I was given the Insignia converter box, NS-DXA1; how do I program tv remote for the box? Thanks, frances b.

The digital to analog converters did not exist when the TV was built and the remote programmed. Thus you will have more luck programming the converter box's remote to control the TV. (At least with my converter box, the included remote could only turn on and off the TV. It would only change channels on the converter.)

Most universal remotes only have codes for devices released 6 months or more before the TV was programmed. So a new universal remote will probably control both the TV and the converter box. (Program the converter box using a code for LG or Zenith set top boxes if Insignia isn't listed. LG makes Insignia video products for Best Buy.) The remotes that are programmable by a USB connection to a computer are the fastest to set up.

A replacement remote for your TV is available here: . An exact replacement remote for the converter box can be purchased at: . The manual for the converter box (as a PDF) is here: .

I hope this helps.

Try holding down the tv power button and keep holding it while you press the channel button until your tv comes in.. It takes a few pushes. Make sure your tv is off first though.

Insignia NS-DXA1 APT remote control doesn't work

Set your TV input to match the input your have your Insigna connected to. Then run the Insignia setup. You are getting a distorted screen because you probably have the Insignia connected to channel 3 and the TV on channel 4.

Insignia NS-DXA1 - Digital to Analog converter box

I have had my converter box 5 days now. I hooked it up to the TV and set it up. No Problem. Except there are no instructions on how to set up the VCR/DVD player with it, which we use more than we do watching TV. Everything worked fine until on the second day we had it I read I could program the remote to turn the TV on and off. I followed the instructions and the TV went off. When I turned it back on, my remote went berserk. If I try to change a channel it will quickly flip through all the channels until I turn the converter box off. Same with the volume, it goes up and down, up and down until I shut off the box. The remote does not work unless you are about 1 foot away from the box. And the remote has never turned the TV on or off except that first time I programed it.
