Question about Televison & Video
What's great about it: Simple hookup, sound and picture are very good, wide picture is a must, and yes a good price and better protection What's not so great: None I have just bought this beautiful Insignia TV set earlier this afternoon. My uncle bought it for me, because my old Magnavox 19 inch television set is almost at its DOA. The old TV didn't get the picture immediately once I turned that on--I only waited like over three minutes or more for the picture to come back on. But this Insignia TV is really good. 26 inches, combined with a DVD Player, and it really has some cinematic quality. The hookup was quite simple, but the hardest part of all was to autoscan once I turned it on for the first time. But that was no longer a problem, because my landlord showed me how to autoscan. Just simply press the menu button, and select the autoscan. Once the autoscan is complete, the cable is like back on, and it looks better than my old TV I had for almost 14 years. I went to my local Best Buy in the mall, and one of the clerks recommended it to me. Ironically, my uncle has the same exact one that I have right now. It really fits in my living room on top of the TV Table. It's HD all the way, and I love it. Despite the price, it's an awesome TV and excellent quality to boot and it really delivered. Everything else was all set and it didn't require any unnecessary reinstallations with my VCRs, Playstation 2, cable converter, and of course, my other DVD Player. Great TV, for a not too bad of a price and since it's flatscreen, I would probably have enough room to put my Playstation 2 next to it, and like my new TV my PS2 can probably fit there without much incident. Nothing really bad. It seemed good enough for me and my twin sister, and it seemed good enough for my uncle who bought it for himself before he bought it for me. The price was too much for me--more if you can count an extra $70 for the extended warranty plan. But other than that, it was worth it. It was definitely worth it. SInce it's widescreen, I will want to keep it widescreen all the way--unless I can zoom in for the most important parts, especially if I can do it while playing a tape in my VCR (seperate from the TV). If you want a good quatlity TV with superior cinematic quality, and you can get closer views with everything you ever dreamed of getting for your house or apartment, or wherever else you live, then The Insignia 26 inch HDTV set is for you

First off you need to retire that ps2 and join the PS3 revolution, well worth the money although with the recent drop of the inferior x-box 360 the PS3 may follow suit shortly.
Now, I'm gathering from your discription limited as it may be that you had an adapter that connected the the stock cable that was included with your ps2 which consists of the end that interfaces with the ps2 and the end that is ment to provide the signal to your tv which includes your composite video (yellow) and your left and right audio (red&white).
If this is case then it should be a simple matter of removing the adapter that changed the source (ps2) signal to aerial and pluging the yellow red and white cables direct to your tv (standard imputs at the rear of the television should be video 1,2,3 ect.
Then just make sure your tv is on and set to the correct imput and you should be rockin and rolling in no time.

If the TV goes in standby, then it is in protection mode.
Ensure also that the fault is not coming from a faulty receiver box sending
bad signal, check if you get same problem on DVD with no receiver box
Try first leaving the TV power cord unplugged for some times, let say one hour or so.
The flashing light indicates a diagnostic state called protection.
When the TV goes on protection there are only two possible causes.
1The internal circuits are jammed because of electrostatic charges accumulating on capacitors, or because of a wrong voltage read by the main chip on your monitor controller board. this started the protection circuit.
2 The protection circuit detected a wrong voltage or abroken contact, identified an internal fault and kicked in , starting the flashing light.
If you are in situation one, then the TV will reset just unplugging power cord for one or two hours,sometimes even minutes.
If you are in situation 2 , then there is an internal fault.
If under warranty contact the manufacturer ringing the number on the user manual
If you want to repair at your own expenses, just locate any good qualified repairer.

On LCD Pay particular attention at inverter and power board, power board can be inspected looking for bulged or leaking capacitors, then tested with a multimeter. The inverter is more difficult to test , there is need to read voltages, should be done by a tech. Also the LCD controller board can cause same problem
On Plasma, test Sustain (Ysus/Zsus) / Buffer boards , cables to plasma, digital board and power board.
On Rear Projection : check lamp, lamp ballast, power board, and convergence.
On CRT TVs, check ballast , flyback transformer, CRT, Tuner, Convergence.
