That is usually a faulty power adapter.

Sometimes a faulty inverter board can do the same, but in that case you often get sound with no picture for a while before the the inverter comes up.

In your case it is probably a blown capacitor on power supply board.

Buttons on TV suddenly not responsive


If they are actual buttons check to see if one is stuck. Listen for a click on each button while it is turned off so you can hear it and feel it. Another possibility could be when you moved it around somehow the internal cable that connects the buttons to a connector has slipped out or just has a bad connection. Would require you to take the bezel off to see if the internal connections are ok. Not sure what else to suggest. At least the remote works.

My tv starts on at least the green button goes on, but we don't see nothing on the screen


Insignia are a low-end Best Buy brand, and as such their reliability is poor.

If you're plugged in, the inputs are set correctly and the power comes on on the TV but you receive no picture, there is an issue with the TV itself.

Insignia offers a 2-year warranty, but you must have the original box and must be willing to pay for shipping. If you lack the original box or your purchase was longer than 30 days ago and you didn't purchase the extended warranty from Best Buy, you're most likely going to need a new TV, as they cost more to repair than they're worth.

Have to hold power button down to get insignia 32" to turn on. Now it won't turn on at all. Before it would turn on easier if I tilted it on its back. No capacitors inside look to be damaged or bulging...


I had similar problem with a 42" Soniq plasma TV.
The fault was the start up / power up circuit board at a cost of $180 Australian including labour.
Alternatively:
The serviceman told me that it's not uncommon for him to see On/Off switches on plasma or Lcd TV's that have jammed up inside the TV even though the switch / button still appears to be working normal outside of the TV.

TV will not turn on.


Using an aftermarket remote (DirectTV, purchased from EMTC) I was able to get it turned on using a code referenced by the instructions that came with it. If you look in the TV's manual it refers to using the SET button when trying to activate the correct code setting for the TV. This button is not present on this remote. However, reading elsewhere in the manual, and the remote's instructions, I concluded that (for this remote) simultaneously pressing SELECT and MUTE was equivalent to SET. I used that and one of the suggested codes and the set turned on!

Insignia NS-32LCD will not turn on.


WIth the set only 7 months old, it should still be under warranty. The problem now is that by opening it up, you effectively have voided the warranty. That being said, the problem is that a problem has been detected internally and the set shuts down to prevent further damage. The first suspect is the main power supply board. I would try for warranty service first. If that is not available a local service shop should be able to take some measurements inside to detemine whether the power supply is not working correctly or if the suply is being told to shutdown. WIth what little info is available here and not being able to examine the actual unit, remote diagnosis will be difficult.

Keep us posted.

Power light blinks and TV gives chirping sound


It may be the power supply has failed, and or one of the board has a short in it. You will have to find out who services this model of set in your area. They will have to use board substitution to service it. It is possible that the parts are no longer available for this model. The service rep can tell you that.
