Insignia LCD TV 26" Colored Streaks/No Picture

Our bedroom TV is a NS-LCD26A Insignia LCD TV. I've read all the posts and solutions on everything I could find for this TV and nothing has worked (Sounds like these are one of the junkiest TV's around from all of the unit failures). I currently have the back off of the TV so I can see all the parts (diodes, capacitors, etc.).
The TV worked fine for 14 months then when powering up it would not show the "Please Wait" message what was typical of the power up sequence and then nothing but a grey screen with colored streaks slowly morphing around the screen came on. Currently still does the same thing every time. I'm sure it's something that has gone wrong with one of the circuit boards but I'm no TV expert.
Thank you for your time.

You have a bad LCD panel. The cost of a repair would exceed the value of the unit. Panel will probably cost, if you could find one, around $300-$800.

I have a insignia.MODEL NS-LCD26A. SERIAL #2881LC26HA37H05804. WHEN I TURN IT ON THE SCREEN IS JUST WHITE. WHAT IS WRONG?AND WHAT SHOULD I DO?


It sounds that the main digital board to this set is not functioning. There are many reasons for this, and is not a user repairable fault. Contact any service technician.

Insignia (ns-lcd26a) picture problems


ns-lcd26a
Hi,I fixed my here's issues i had and the fix i did..
ns-lcd26a
Every now and then i would get snow and a pink picture.
Then tv stop turning on .

To fix i seen on main board capacitor cp25 and cp28 near the heat sink was bad
They were both 470uf 35v...
on the power board i seen c531 47uf 50v was bad.
i also heated up the heat sink on the main board to resit the chip ,,
and tv now works

I didnt bother putting the huge shield back on main board i figure it was a issue to over heating the cpu instead take the hit to the brain from the fcc radio wave lol

First do the 3 caps and see if it works if not then do the blow dryer to the heat sink on main board

I have the same issue with a Insignia NS-LCD26A


I would suggest trying to repair the board first before buying a new one (unless you get a great deal on a replacement one). Its possible it was something simple like a fuse or busted capacitors.

Open up the TV and take out the power board and check it for any busted capacitors. Also check the fuse(s) with a multimeter. Try replacing everything with a soldering iron (shouldn't cost more than $10 for a fuse and capacitors). Try and see if it makes a difference. ONLY DO THIS IF YOU ARE CONFIDENT and SAFE with that type of work.
