I came across it by sheer fluke I held the Number1 key and the very last key on my remote and held them together for about 10 seconds, this deactivated the lock that was on the screen. I asked a few technicians but, u know people just don't want to help anymore. So i hope that my solution helps someone with the same problem. Other CTC televisions can be fixed by the same method.

Hello When an Insignia TV is locked, it keeps you from watching all of your channels by only displaying a black screen. Insignia TVs are locked from a single button command on the remote control, so it is easy for you to lock the TV by accident. Since Insignia TVs can be locked so easily, it's important to know how to undo this command and unlock the TV yourself. So, unlock your Insignia TV with the push of a button and once again enjoy watching your favorite programs. ·Find the lock button on the Insignia remote control. The lock button is located on the third column from the left on the second row from the top of the remote.
·Stand within operating range of the Insignia TV, then aim the remote at the TV's receiver and press the "Lock" button on the remote control. · Aim the remote at the TV and press the channel buttons to make sure the TV is unlocked. When the TV is locked, it shows a black screen and does not allow you to view anything else. If the screen remains black, press the "Lock" button again. If this doesn't work, change the batteries in the remote and start over at step OK
The Red Lock indicates that it has been Child Locked, this could be done by
accidently pressing child lock. On your remote control there is a MUSIC button,
to turn off the red child lock PUSH & HOLD the button. The red lock does not
go off with a qucik push. You need to Push & Hold The music button for about
Somehow in handling the remote control I pushed a button or combination of buttons and now have a blue screen with a lock symbol in red in the top left hand corner. I've tried turning the tv off, and unplugging it, as well as a combination of buttons on the remote, but it still is there. What do I need to do to remove the lock?
the exact same thing JUST happened to us, my daughter unknowingly pushed a button, or a combo of buttons on the remote, we got the blue screen with the lock in the left hand corner, tried ALL of the above (we have the same tv, insigna, only 2 yrs old), I typed the problem in on the net and got the solution, pressing the display button worked!!! Thank U who ever knew this!!!
I had the exact problem...tried a number of things that did not work. My dog "ate" my original remote. After reading your solution I took the universal remote that was programmed to work with the tv and tried holding down each button for a few seconds hoping that one would work like the display button on the original remote. It worked.
I have a GE universal remote and the menu/info button worked for me. Again, you need to hold it in for a couple of seconds. Thanks for the help and I hope my added solution helps other people. Claudia in Minnesota
