Question about Insignia I-LC26Q1 Television

1 Answer

Insignia 27" HDTV

My kids put about $1.00 in pennies through the slots in the side of it and today it blew up, I haven't took it apart to see the damage but is there any chance it can be fixed? Or should I just get a new TV, I really liked this TV.

Without opening the set or having a tech look at it, it is impossible to tell. Maybe only a fuse blew? Good Luck

Ok I have a Westinghouse led tv ld-3260 I have all the screws out trying to figure why it won't pull apart couldn't find a service/ repair manual anywhere online the top left and right

There are a series of internal snaps all along the edges. Using a plastic pry, start in the long center of one side and pop them one at a time until they all unlatch.

Surge outage tv not coming on

Quite possibly just blew TV fuse, but may have more damage, usually to the power supply circuit.
Unplug TV & remove back & do a visual inspection of all PCBs & wiring. your looking for physical damage, traces of arcing, parts blown apart or damaged/discolored.

Grandson put a penny into the SD slot while the TV was on. It immediately stopped working.

This happened to me yesterday. My daughter put a penny and a dime in the SD slot and none of the buttons or volume were working on my TV.Only the power button would work.
I fixed it by simply removing the penny and dime out of the SD slot and then i held the power button for 10 seconds. After I unplugged the TV from its power source for 5 minutes and then plug it back in. When I turned the TV back on everything was back to normal.
For a second I thought I was going to have to buy a new TV, lol. Hope this helps. If it doesn't work the first time then try it a second time.
By the way I have a Panasonic PT-52LCX66 LCD Projection TV..

Panasonic remote and volume/channel buttons do not work

My son put a penny in the SD card slot of my Pansonic flat screen tv. I finally got the penny out but now the volume and tv controls do not work. I can change the channels through my cable box but that is it. The volume does not work on my cable remote or the flatscreen. What do you suggest I do to fix this problem?? Thanks, Josh

Samsung lcd model LN-T4661F,no picture, no sound, when I turn it off, slight screen flicker and tone, one and half yrs. old . Yesterday I turned it on and off about 10 times and it finnally came on, Today...

I have had this problem twice. about 9 months apart. each time i vacumed out the back the tv through the vents. the first time i did this the tv worked right away. the second time the screen went it took a little more. i had to reverse the vacum to blow the air out i blew the air throught the vents and vacumed it. one think i realized was the hole where the stand went made it very easy to accomplish this. the first time it last for a while we will see how it works this time. my unprofiessional opinion is the the dust build up blocks something. if this works for anyone please let me know.

good luck.

Heres what mine did:no picture no sound, when i hit the remote the indicator light went out....piece of crap is six months old, cant find any info on it, cant get a hold of anyone at Trutech.
So i took it apart, on the board that the power cord is attached to, i found six blown capacitors. There is also a big ass one in the middle of that board which looked ok but blew out the bottom.I replaced them, and im watching it as i type.
Its fairly easy but if your not comfortable soldering on a cheap circuit board, take it to someone.
I hope it helps, i think this repair will fix the other Trutech models with the same problems.
