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!

Insignia 26 inch TV/DVD Combo produces strange odor when on.

You should never have an acrid or burning smell coming from electronics. I'd return the unit, if that is still an option, as it is about to fail.

High pitch pulsing & picture now

I would check the set for bad connections. The high pitched sound you are hearing is the high voltage section. If the convergence IC has completely failed, that can cause this as well. Try using STK392-150 or STK392-180. Either one will sub since they are pin compatible and they both can handle more power, thus should last longer. Also, make sure that you use plenty of the heatsink compound when mounting these.

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.
