Question about Insignia IS 20" TV040919 TV

1 Answer

No picture Last night while watching TV, the Insignia unit had some strange, high-pitched sounds coming out and the screen stopped showing anything after the sounds stopped. Right now, if we turn the TV on, there is a blank-greyish screen showing. We can change the volume (and the green volume bar shows up at the bottom), but we cannot change the channel. Also, I tried turning on my PS2 that is connected to it, and that doesn't work. Cable still works in other rooms though. Thanks for your help!

Your TV have faults on Horizontal deflections, the oscillator and the Flyback might be the problems. If you are not familiar with TV circuits?... call tecnician to check your set.

Samsung TV stopped displaying picture

No picture but sound can mainly be of two problems, most of the times it is caused by a faulty vertical deflection ic, you can diagnose this by slightly increasing the screen voltage by turning the screen control on the LOT, a horizontal line will appear if the vertical ic is shot, and the other problem is the CRT base, but this is less common for shot base won't go off at once, it will show picture faded in the beginning. Now another problem could be the horizontal output transistor, if the tv has a high power sound output, the sound power supply will come from smps itself instead of from LOT, check that too, to confirm this, check if the CRT filament is glowing. Good luck.

No Picture

Rarely picture tube also shows the same symptom. High pitch sound is due to through deflection area LOT power supply is loaded. Compulsary horizontal output transister short. From your statement i think Lot puncture takes place. Change LOT and horizontal output transister and check tv is now working.

High pitch sound and fuzzy

The high pitched sound, probably not, unless you open this TV set and find out what is making the noise and replace the part. Most likely a coil or transformer is vibrating so fast that the frequency is very high. On the focus, possibly can be adjusted. Now when you take off the back of this TV set, i must warn you, follow my instructions to the letter as there is enough High Voltage in this set to make a grown man cry! After you take out all of the screws off the rear cover,carefully lift up the cover straight up. Oh by the way the TV should be face down. Opps! Not stand back up the TV set and there will be a Grey or black block like looking thing with a large red wire going to the top of the picture tube. on this block you will find two controls, one will say screen, and the other will say focus. DO NOT ADJUST ANYTHING ELSE WHEN YOU ARE IN THIS TV SET!!! No slowly rock the focus control back and forth till you get the sharpest picture. Put back on the back cover and enjoy!!! Good Luck
