Black box in front of picture

I purchased the Insignia box about 3 months ago. Everything was working fine. Then one day a black box the size of the menu screen appeared on the Screen. I can see the side of the picture behind this box. When I change channels you can see the complete screen for about 2 seconds and then the black box appears in front of the picture. What do I need to d to get rid of the black box?

If it's the box,just press the CCD button on the controller until you see CCD off .(Try this one first since it just started with the box)

If it's the TV,just go into the setup options and turn off the closed caption feature.

My converter box, which was working fine until about two months ago, will not change channels, although the remote will turn the converter box on and off.


Is the converter on any particular channel?
Are there set top controls? Do they work?
Do you have a picture?
Has any thing been changed recently, like wiring?
Have any children been playing with the remote?

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.

Picture sixe reduced and picture breaks up with converter box


You can change the way the channels can be displayed/viewed by a video setting, consult manual. When pic breaks into pixels and sound goes it's usually a reception problem so you'll have to adjust the antenna facing a direction that makes that channel come in clearly. It helps to experiment with positions and antennas.

Insignia model NS-DXA1 digital converter box


I have heard alot of people having the same type of problem with booth the insigna and the Magnavox boxes. Check the warranty that came with the unit and and call the 1800 number, they may be covering the unit for more then three months. Insigna is the Best Buy brand thus thus if calling the maker of the box (LG) doesn't get it fixed, speak to the store manager. He can exchange the unit if he wants to because Insigna is the store brand. Call Best Buy and complain and complain unit they take back the defective unit.

VCR only records/plays in black and white


I just recently purchased an HD Samsung television and am trying to use it with an Insignia theater system, but picture images are night vision in blue and white. What's wrong with picture? My cable company is baffled, to say the least. What is wrong with this picture? If this system is incompatible to current quality HD television systems then it needs to be removed from market or modified.

Insignia NS-DXA1 - Digital to Analog converter box


I have had my converter box 5 days now. I hooked it up to the TV and set it up. No Problem. Except there are no instructions on how to set up the VCR/DVD player with it, which we use more than we do watching TV. Everything worked fine until on the second day we had it I read I could program the remote to turn the TV on and off. I followed the instructions and the TV went off. When I turned it back on, my remote went berserk. If I try to change a channel it will quickly flip through all the channels until I turn the converter box off. Same with the volume, it goes up and down, up and down until I shut off the box. The remote does not work unless you are about 1 foot away from the box. And the remote has never turned the TV on or off except that first time I programed it.

Black and white picture on the JVC TH-505


If you hold the VFP button while a movie is on, you will get a small box on the corner that shows your color. My default color also turned black and white. I just moved over to a user1 color setting (push the right arrow on your remote), and it allows to the change the colors. You might be able to put the colors to come out through here. Hope this helps.
