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.

Insignia flex tablet will not turn on


Make sure the battery is fully charged and left plugged in while you try to turn on the tablet.

Hold down the power button (it takes a long press) until you see the INSIGNIA logo on the screen.

If it takes longer than 10 seconds and the unit hasn't turned on, the unit is not functioning properly.

If you have the protection plan, I would recomend you return it to Best Buy for a new one.

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!

Follows steps below to program your Insignia Converter Box:
1. Turn on your TV using your TV remote control and change its channel to 3 or 4.

2. Turn on the convert box; the blue light on the converter box is on. If you press the power button again, the red light on the converter box will be on, but do Not turn it to Red!!! Your insignia's other buttons will not response if it in red light mode!!!


3. Then press the Menu button on the Insignia remote control. A wizard will appear. The wizard does not appear if your TV is not in channel 3 or 4.

4. Follow the wizard instructions to scan channels.

Remote to Insignia Digital converter box will not do anything but turn unit on/off, although the light does flash when buttons are push - nothing happens.


Well, try it two different ways, as follows: But be sure that the tv-channel that's selected for tuning will be identical to the "output-channel" which you'll then select for the Insignia converter-box. So, if you first select Channel 3 for tuning the tv set, then you must later select Channel 3 on the "Output Channel" choice for the Insignia "set-up" menu. Similarly, if you first select Channel 4 for tuning the tv set, then you must later select Channel 4 on the "Output Channel" choice for the Insignia "set-up" menu. Be consistent! If you find that the Insignia menu-screen does not subsequently appear after tuning the tv to Channel 3, then start-over with Channel 4 as your proper tv-tuned station to initiate the pop-up screen for the Insignia menu.

Now, here's an example that assumes Channel 3 is the proper tuning-station for your tv-set within your particular region: You will first tune your tv-set itself (by means of its handheld tv-remote) to Channel 3. Be sure, however that your Insignia converter-box is turned-on and properly connected to your tv-set and antenna.

On your tv's hand-held remote-controller, you should find a button that serves as its "input selector" -- with a typical descriptor such as "Input" or "Line" or "Video/Antenna." Press that button, and enter successive channel numbers until you get to Channel 3. You may need to press the digits 03 to signify Channel 3. The tv-screen may be colored bright blue at that point.

Then, as you switch to holding your Insignia remote-controller, press the "Menu" button. (Please note that you will need to press hard and firm upon the buttons of the Insignia hand-held in order to get proper responsiveness; a quick touch of the button will not be effective.) After pressing the "Menu" button, the Insignia menu should now appear on the tv-screen. Now, you need to use your Insignia hand-held remote-controller (not the tv hand-held remote-controller again) to travel through the menu-screen to the "Setup" feature. Then, select "Output Channel." Proceed to select Channel 3 -- which will then be printed for you next to the Output Channel feature. Finally, under the same Setup menu, go to "Auto Tuning" -- which will commence a complete scan of all available channels.

Remember, if tuning by Channel 3 is inappropriate for tv-tuning within your particular geographic region, then repeat the above process by substituting Channel 4.

When you are done, you will rely almost exclusively upon the Insignia hand-held remote controller. You do not especially need to use your tv hand-held remote-controller again.
However, be sure to avoid standing in front of your tv-set to change channels by buttons or knobs upon the tv-set itself. Tuning again upon the tv-set itself will negate your prior tv-setting for either Channel 3 or Channel 4 -- and thereby sabotage your working set-up!

I myself incurred chronic anxiety yesterday (June 13), as I was stunned that the Insignia menu-screen did not appear immediately when I pushed "menu" on the Insignia hand-held.
The only buttons that worked on the Insignia handheld remote-controller were the Power-on for the converter-box and the Power-on for the tv-set.



(continued next page)



Because my expectation had been this process would take just a few minutes, I was deeply frustrated and impatient. However, I recognized that my apprehension of impending loss was absolutely appropriate as emotional "signal-processing" for me personally -- in contrast to my formerly high expectation of immediate fulfillment, completion, and gratification. Instead of my intention for quick success, I faced the stunning dread that the Insignia box had become defective or that I'd fail to ever figure-out the problem. I would not have been so impatient if I hadn't expected immediate success for the set-up.

I rejected the slogan that "I just want to get this over with!" I rejected the option of stomping upon the Insignia box! Amidst my hour-long anxiety, I summoned "Courage" -- a mode of patience to accompany my internal "quivering." I did a Google search.

From this Fix-Ya web-site and other troubleshooting sites, I had strong clues that improperly setting Channel 3 or Channel 4 was a primary culprit for the failure of the Insignia's menu-screen to appear. When I finally succeeded, my anxiety dissipated quickly with a temporary relief. But then came the anger that the Insignia "User Guide" had not been clear to explain the process. From that aftermath of outrage, I decided to promptly compose this protocol to assist others who have been similarly tormented -- perhaps to the extent of incorrectly believing that the Insignia converter-box was a defective product requiring prompt replacement.

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.

Ok, I had the exact same problem last summer, and Kevellen told me of a problem that Insignia tv's have: the circuit that controls whether the tv is off or on is messed up, and it can be fixed, but its not cheap.

http://www.fixya.com/support/t924975-wierdness_tv

Anyway, if the t.v. is still under warranty, I would say return it to the store and see if you cant get a new one, and from what I researched online after this incident, I will not buy an Insignia aver again.
hope this helps,
