If you have the manual see if there is a option to disable the OSD (on screen display) this will be a temporary fix, In the mean time I will download the manual and look myself. If not we will need to take the back cover off and unplug the control panel to see if the problem is in the panel or the mainboard. I will get back to you ASAP. Lone99star

    I downloaded the manual too see if we could disable the menu, no luck. We will need to remove the back cover and unplug the control panel to see if it is only the control panel.

    If your tv is still under warranty you should call customer service don't mention the tv getting zapped just tell the symptoms.
    One more thing I would like for you to try before we take the tv apart.


    1. Unplug the tv again.

    2. Press all buttons on the tv control panel several times each to discharge any residule electricity.

    3. Plug back in and try it.
    Let me know how it goes. Lone99star

Unplug the TV from AC mains wall socket, and re-plug it back after 10 minutes or so. This will make TV to a hard reset. It must work properly after this, if no other circuit problem persists. If it do not help you, the main system memory IC need replacement. Contact any experienced service technician.

Insignia 27" tv, unit takes a long time to come


Unfortunately this is probably a hardware problem, hopefully you got it form Best Buy and it is under the 2 year warranty. The sad fact is Insignia TVs just don't last, however it might be something minor that a repair shop can fix. So I would take it into a repair shop and after they say it will take $400 dollars to fix it, chuck it and get a new TV.

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.
