We bought this tv in 1997. It's worked great, the picture fine, no problems. Last month we gave it to our 14 year old when we purchased a new tv. Since it has no video inputs for his playstation we used a converter that you plug the cable into and then plug it into the tv and the playstation. After a week, the tv just stopped working. We turn it on and it just has static. The cable and playstation were both working, and now only static. It won't recognize anything.

i had this happen last year, now my tv is messed up again. when we had the problem with the unusable signal, the tv repair shop told us it was the main motherboard that caused it. ended up paying $250.00 to have it fixed. Now, our tv is broke again, this morning turned it on, got the green light, then just started flashing red, hasnt worked any at all today, reset it and everything. My suggestion, if you can afford to buy a new tv, do it, because I called the repair shop again this morning about the new problem, they said after the 1 year warrentt from rca runs out all they do is tear up. My tv isnt even 4 years old, bought it at the end of 2007, now its tore up twice, going to purchase a samsung in the morning from brandsmart. Good Luck!
I have the same TV which had the same issue ( green in picture ) - back on 10/2007. I called Sony. They had their technician replace the optical box ( factory defect ). There was no charge for the repair even though TV was out of first year of warranty. Call Sony.
Symptoms shows TV got problem in Horizontal deflection area that's why you do not see picture and get only sound.I think its not worth to repair as its 14 years old model and spear parts might not be available or cost too much.
Since you still want to repair it, let me know exact model number of TV to check parts are available some where?
Does anyone know where can I buy a screen for a 27" LCD Insignia TV. Model is NS-27LCD? My screen creaked. I checked out e-bay and have not found a broken TV with a good screen. Does anyone know where I can buy a screen at. Thank you all for you time. JC
I had the same problem last night - sound but no picture form any of the inputs - DVD, VCR, FIOS or antenna. I could still see the TV menu. If you go to the TV menu - you can go to the settings (far right top), from there you can choose to restore factory settings, usually needs a code - 0000 (if you did not choose a different one), select yes when prompted if you want to restore factory defaults. This brought my picture back. I lost all of my picture preferences i had set - but at least I got a picture! I hope this helps!! Marilyn
