Question about Insignia Televison & Video

Red/yellow static lines running through the screen/no picture

Insignia flat screen tv model # NS-42PDP
Serial # 16669PH42FB6001273
Lot # 93411
Manufactured: June 2006

This TV was purchased over a year ago however it has only been used a minimal amount of time. It sat for over 8 months without use and has never been connected to cable. We recently started to use it and after a couple of uses it died. You no longer get a picture, you just see fuzzy horizontal and vertical lines (red/yellow) running across the screen. Can you help?

    this is a large screen tv LCD but manufactured in 2006

  • topcop1809 Jan 01, 2009

    the longer the tv stays on you begin to see two large white horizontal blocks show up

  • topcop1809 Jan 01, 2009

    if it is, is it worth fixing, what does something like that cost?

    OK, as you said remote works and you have sound.
    TV needs LCD Controller board and you can buy it from Shop Jimmy.
    Price is just $50
    If you know how to apart TV and swap board, you can do it yourself.
    Good luck.

Try first unplugging the TV set for ten minutes or so, by unplugging the power cable for a while.

If this does not work it is probably one of the STK ICs that regulate the convergence that has blown, in this case it its better to call a technician, as the TV must be takeen apart, tested , and the faulty component removed.

    If this is an LCD, then convergence is not controlled by convergence board, but from ICS often located on video controller board, that is the main board on this set.

    Replacing the main board is expensive, and may not be worth repairing, as to the board you add the repair cost.

    Faults related to LCD ribbon cable can also give you similar problems. In this case the part will be quite inexpensive, and the repair still worth.

    Also faults concerning the power board and other minor faults can give you display disturbance, even if this is not very common.

    The TV must be tested to find out.

    Try also connecting a different antenna, receiver or computer to the TV, problems with frequency signal and bad cables can give you similar lines.

Im trying to connect my sega dreamcast which has red white an yellow av cable only, however my insignia NS-32E570A11 led tv only has for component connection with the blue green n red, when i hooked it up,...


Sorry, this will not be easy....

You need to locate a composite to RGB converter box.

Your Sega outputs a composite signal - Video (yellow) and audio left/right (white/red).

The TV needs RGB (red/green/blue) inputs on the component connection...your composite signal divided by three. There are converter boxes out there for around 70 bucks or so.

Are you certain you do not have a yellow VIDEO IN jack on your set? Every LCD and LED TV I have experience with has at least one.
