This is a very common problem with your tv, what has most likely happened (about 90% of the time) is the power supply has failed, more specifically there are a few caps in the power supply that have most likely failed. The unit will require component replacement to get it working again. .

Can you help me fix my TV?

because television circuit boards are available off the internet, people think they can repair their own televisions. The course to become a television engineer is 2 years full time. Time and time again we see people who have spent hundreds of dollars changing one board after another and still can't get the set to work. My advice is look at Google and find a television repair engineer in your town, or take it back to the shop where you bought it if they take on repairs.

How to fix a Vizio TV?

Insignia 27" tv, unit takes a long time to come

Unfortunately this is probably a hardware problem, hopefully you got it form Best Buy and it is under the 2 year warranty. The sad fact is Insignia TVs just don't last, however it might be something minor that a repair shop can fix. So I would take it into a repair shop and after they say it will take $400 dollars to fix it, chuck it and get a new TV.

When i turn on the tv, it clicks on and the fan fires up for about two seconds then the tv turns off. then the red power light flashes three times, and continues to flash in that sequence. i have a sony...

Did you replaced/ took out lamp from tv to inspect it?
3 times red light flashing shows that lamp cover has not been fixed on tv, lamp cover is first thing that needs to remove to take out lamp from tv.
Please check lamp cover and make sure it is fixed properly on tv.
