Question about Insignia IS 20" TV040919 TV

1 Answer

Everything slowly went wrong

My tv is not even 2 years old. We had the original remote and one day the volume wouldnt turn up anymore, but you could do everything else, and then a while after you couldnt turn channels anymore but you could turn it on and off, and then finally it all went out. I thought it was just the remote not working, so I was doing without for a while (since I couldnt find a code for my tv for a universal remote) but then MONTHS later, just recently, the tv stopped turning on all together. I cant turn it on with the buttons on the front of the tv. I've changed outlets, let the tv sit, no noise, no nothing. It just stopped?

Re: Everything slowly went wrong

Most likely you have a locked up micro on the main board. You would need to have the main board replaced. If the set is not under warranty your cost to repair would exceed your cost to replace.

Check if you mistakenly hot the mute button. If not check other remotes, i.e cable, set top box remote volume. Thumb me up if I helped. :)

Remote not working

Sometimes dust is accumulated in tv remote receiver sensor. This will give you the malfunction. Because your statement says TV is about 8 yrs old. Better solution is make one general service. If you have remote checker check the TV original remote working or not. We say universal remote, sometimes even technical person does not know how to use. Because in each and every brand and model there is a secret code to initiate the version. So better make one general service and check in your original remote it is working.

Sony 36' TV Volume Goes up on own/Stuck on Video 2

There's a setting in the menu. I think it's called "smart audio". It's supposed to adjust the volume automatically for commercials. But I don't think it works that well. Give that a try.
