Question about Insignia IS 20" TV040919 TV

1 Answer

White screen So a few days ago I had just turned on my tv and was getting ready to switch video inputs to play a video game when my tv shuts itself off. When I turn it back on the screen is white with a bunch of lines across the screen and brown splotches on each side of the television left and right. What happened? And how can i fix it?

Re: White screen

You have an IF problem or a problem in the video driver circuit. If there is no sound I would tend to think there was an IF fault. No quickly fix here I'm afraid. Most likely this set will not be worth fixing. Good Luck

To play videogames on an old tv PLEASE HELP

You'll need to switch the TV into Video mode. Most TV sets will have a button on the front panel labelled "input" or "tv/video," and pressing this button will cycle through the various inputs your TV has.

Alternatively, this button may be located on your remote control.

Rarely, no button exists, and video input is selected by changing the channel below channel 2; as if you were trying to select channel 1. This will select the video input on sets without a separate input selector button.

How to switch tv to play games

well there should be an option on your remote labled either source or input. that allows you to change from the iputs on your tv. you need to know which input you plugged your wii into. if you select the option and match your tv input to where you plugged your wii into and you still have no pic.make sure your wii is powered on. as well make sure you plugged the cables in correctly. if your using componet cables its red green blue for video and red and white for audio. make sure the audio and video are not crossed that will cause pic distortion. and if your using composite cables makes sure its red yellow and white plugged into red yellow and white. yellow is for video and red and white are your audio. if all this is correct and still no pic. then it's either your wii or your TV.

I have the remote for my sanyo mts tv but i cant find out how to get it to switch to video mode so i can play games on it there is no button

There is button on your remote labeled TV/AV . Press the button to get a blank screen with AV written on the screen. If your game device is connected at the back to this AV socket ( Yellow / Red / White ) you will see the game menu display.
On some of the TV remotes it might not be written TV/AV but INPUT SOURCE or just a picture of a TV screen with an arrow pointing inwards ( that LOGO is the universal symbol for INPUT )

Connecting VCR/DVD

Does your TV have more than one A-V input ? If so perhaps you're plugged into the wrong input. Make sure you're coming out an output on your VCR/DVD player and going into an input A-V plug on your TV. Stargazer I've messed up like this a few times!

You probably have a component breaking down on one of the circuit boards. It would have to be checked out to find out which one. Stargazer

No Color on my Audiovox AVT-1498

That model has a history of bad solder connections in various circuits. I would not be surprised if that is the case with the color circuitry. You may get the color to come and go by slapping the sides of the TV or lifting one corner about 1/2 inch and dropping it. If it does, it is a bad connection and possibly fixable. If no change is noted, it could be a bad semiconductor or capacitor, etc., causing the symptoms. For that size set, it would probably be cheaper to replace with a different brand. Toshiba has a nice 14" model IMO.
