Try holding down the tv power button and keep holding it while you press the channel button until your tv comes in.. It takes a few pushes. Make sure your tv is off first though.

SOURCE: I have an Insignia DVD/VCR combo model

The code may not be available. The Radio Shack 150-1923 was released in 1999 and your device is newer than the remote (released in 2007). The codes programmed into the remote are limited to devices released at least six months before the remote was programmed.

I'd recommend you get a newer universal remote. The Insignia line is built for Best Buy by several companies but most of the products are from the LG Electronics company. So on a newer remote, look at LG codes as well as for the Insignia codes.

If you want to try longer with this remote, you can try a manual code search. Turn on the Insignia DVD/VCR. Press and hold the Setup button until the light comes on. Then press the VCR or one of the Aux buttons. The light will blink once. Then press On, Play, Power or Channel Up. Continue to press the button until the unit responds. Then press Ent within 5 seconds. (If you miss the response, press Last and then press the On, Play, Power or Channel Up until it responds.) If the DVD/VCR turns off but doesn't respond to the remote after you press Ent. Retry the code search but wait longer between button presses.

The manual and code list for this universal remote is available here: .

I wish that I could be of more help.

Did you install the batteries correctly?
Some remotes (Universal) need to be re-programed when you install new batteries.
