Insignia NS-30HTV "Please Wait"

I have an Insignia NS-30HTV. It worked fine for awhile, now when I turn it on the only thing that appears is the please wait black screen. I'm not sure if I should just pitch it or pay to have someone look at it. I have no idea what the problem is. Please help me. If anyone has any suggestions on how to fix it your help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks

    I have same problem on NS-LCD26A Model. I get the same momentary flash on the screen "Please Wait" I brought it back to Best Buy. Best Buy tells me to toss it out since it is not covered by warranty 13 months old (1 month over).
    A refurbished DSP Board cost $165 on Bestbuy web sight. A new board cost $501 (with droping LCD prices a new TV is a better option). Risk of repair is the refurbished or New board has same potential to fail just check all the complaints with insignia. Cut your losses and get something other than Insignia/Advent next time.

I had this problem twice in 3 years. today being the second. After some research, I came to the conclusion that it has to do with the video side of the circuit board or the tunner. Both times it happened the tv was searching for a high definition channel and it probably lost the signal and it froze on "please wait" Solution: (at least for me)
turn tv off
disconnect from power outlet for at least halve hour
disconnect ALL cables from behind the tv
after halve hour press power button on tv for 60 seconds approcimately (power and all cables off still)
release power button and reconnect 110 v power cable only to 110 v outlet
with all cables diconnected exept for power, press power button on tv
"please wait" might still come for few seconds if it does power tv off for few seconds and power on again.
using the remote or on tv, go back or press a channel that worked previously. (example: 05 fox news)
if it let's you select a different channel, leave it there and with tv on start connecting rca canbles coaxial cables from antenna or hi cables and good luck. this worked for me. please let me know if this helped.

Try unplugging the unit from the wall outlet. This can reset a typical error many times.

Most likely you have a fault in the back light circuit. To verify this, turn on the set, when the screen goes black, take a bright flashlight and shine it on the screen. It may be easier to dim the lights in the room so that you can see the faint image on the screen. If you see the faint image, you indeed have a back light problem. You will need to get a diagnoses performed on the set to track down the problem

Our Insignia NS-30HTV picture is sort of hour-glass shaped on the edges. About 2-3 inches on each side of the picture is missing. How do you fix?


In my experience, this indicative of TV tube failure. However, just to be sure, try resetting the TV to factory defaults by entering the onscreen menus, select Picture, then reset. Also, power-cycle your TV (turn it off and unplug for several minutes). More details can be found in the owner's manual. If these steps don't resolve the display issue, you may call 1-888-237-8289 in the U.S. or 1-866-237-8289 in Canada to schedule in-home service.

INSIGNIA NS-30HTV TV will not power on after a/c power failure


It may just be a fuse that is blown. If you take the back cover off and follow the power cord you should be able to find the a.c line fuse, it will be a glass fuse with metal end caps.
A blown fuse will show a broken filament inside or blackened glass. You may also have d.c fuses inside , they will look the same sa the a.c fuse. Their values should be written on the circuit board near the fuses and always on one of the end cap.
something like250V/3A for 3 amps. Hope this will help. Good luck
