Insignia TV suddenly no sound

The TV is a year and a half old and suddenly has no sound. Picture is find but zero audio. We can get closed captions to show up, and that's it. Any ideas of how to reset to default settings or if it's a mechanical failure?

    I have the same model television, also about 1.5yr old. Except on mine the sound cuts out on its own. It comes back when you change the channel or turn off the tv. Sometimes the sound doesn't disappear, but it gets really distorted.

    Set was working fine when I turned it off. When I turned it on the next day I had no sound. When you push the stereo button on the remote

    you get either mono or SAT instead of mono or stereo. The captions work, so you can read what is being said.

    Same problem. Have replaced all the cables and the cable box, didn't help. Sound won't work with the DVD player either, so we're sure it's a problem with the TV.
    This started happening 13 months after we bought it, of course, since the stupid warranty is only for 12.
    Guess we'll see what the repairman says it'll cost...

I am seeing a black screen that covers up half the screen horizntally and radom characters are displayed in yellow and green text. How can I prevent/ stop this from happening

Hi and welcome to fixya.

From your description of the problem it sounds like you may have the "closed caption" turned on in text mode.
Look on your remote control for a button labeled CC or CAPTION and press it repeatedly until it says OFF.
Otherwise you may find it in your tv`s menu under "closed caption" .
You just need to turn it off.

Hope this help and happy holidays.

We have INSIGNIA 32 inch TV which two years old.Now suddenly it started to display white lines . But the inbuilt DVD picture is good. what would be the problem

Display distortion can be caused by close proximity of other electronic devices which interfere with broadcast signals. Try moving other electronics farther away. More details and tips can be found in the owner's manual.

Why do I have sound but only bottom half of picture is viewable?

Check to see if you have the text mode on in your closed caption . Go into the menu ( if your remote has the letterrs C.C. on it push it until it goes into the off mode ) and find the closed caption . Then follow the procedure to turn it off . If this is not your problem you have a vertical problem in the set . Common problems would be the vertical output IC or capacitors in that section are what we term leaky and would need to be replaced . Let me know model # if you think you can tackle the job if the closed caption is not your problem . A meter and soldering iron and tools would be needed . Team Tech

Blackout area on screen

Make sure the TEXT and CAPTION options are turned off.

I am not sure about the Sonny's, but on my Toshiba a black box appears when I inadvertently leave one of the close captioning (CC) on for text or captions on (such as CC1, CC2, etc.).

Sony Trinitron 13 inch TV, KV-13M10. Cannot delete black text box

You must find the "All in one" remote. That will have a "display" button that needs to be pressed. You may just need to go to Radio shak and ask for an old one for a day to do it. Good Luck.

Black menu-like box randomly appears, covering the picture

This is a problem with closed-captioning. What you are seeing is a closed captioning box with no captioning in it. Usually this is being accidentally transmitted by the cable company "head end". Just make sure your closed captioning function is completely turned off. if you are seeing it randomly, it may well be coming from your cable company. Is it just on certain channels?

Salutations bachiche13,

It sounds like your "Text" feature of your closed captioning may be activated. It sounds like what you would want to do is go in to your television menu and select CC or Closed Captioning to mute or off.

Hope this helps.
