Question about Insignia 42" LCD Flat-Panel HDTV

2 Answers

TV won't scan for NBC-HD or CBS-HD

Hi, I recently bought an Insignia 42" 1080 screen - model # NS - LCD42HD and I get all of the channels, including the HD, EXCEPT CBS HD (Ch. 201) and NBC HD (Ch. 203) on my WOW cable service.

My roommate has an HD TV upstairs and he gets all of the channels. I bought a new coaxial cable that connects from the TV to the wall. I do not have a cable box (Should I buy one?)

I have scanned the TV for channels in cable mode several times. Is there a repair code I need to get these 2 channels? It's really frustrating because the company directed me to Geek Squad, who charges at least $150 plus tax to come out here. I do NOT want to go that route, the TV should have had these channels to begin with when I paid for the ***** TV! Sorry for the frustration, any advice?

You need a cable box to get cable channel signal, that coax cable plug on tv is to connect to an antenna.

    If you have cable TV service, call the provider company, and ask for a cable box, cable signal need to be decoded, and should be necessary a cable receiver to do that.

I am also having a problem with my Insignia NS-LCD42HD-09. When I turn it on it is distorted and ghostly. It usually clears up within 10 minutes, but it can revert back at anytime. The television will be 3 year old this December. Does anyone have any advice (other than calling the Geek Squad)

The LCD Screen is damaged beyond repair. Cost to replace TV is cheaper than repair.

How to get hd picture through my insignia tv without digital cable


Unfortunately, at this time, you don't unless it is a powerful station local to you. In order to see which stations are available to you, you would enter the Setup menu of your tv, and then the section that allows you to scan for channels.
Also, digital cable alone doesn't guarantee you'll get HD signal. You would have to order an HD package from your cable or satellite provider. For example, Comcast touts their digital package as if it were vastly superior to the "standard" signal. Whether or not it is would be a matter of opinion, but the digital package is not HDTV. This misconception has disappointed many a subscriber, myself included (until I ordered the HD package). :^ )
