Insignia TV locked out

Somehow in handling the remote control I pushed a button or combination of buttons and now have a blue screen with a lock symbol in red in the top left hand corner. I've tried turning the tv off, and unplugging it, as well as a combination of buttons on the remote, but it still is there.
What do I need to do to remove the lock?

    I have the 20'' model and it is locked as well, but I dont have a display button on my remote.

    My step-son entered a code for the parental control. He doesn't remember the code. I've already spoke to a technican, and they gave me a code (didn't work). Now they're telling me that I have to bring the T.V. in for them to flick a switch in the T.V.. Would anybody know whereabout this button would be. Thank you in advance.

    Unfortunately, our original remote bit the dust, I have no display button, can't remember how to fix it. All I did was lower the volume on the tv and it locked up. Bunch of ****.

    For me, holding the display button doesn't do anything, what I need is a code to unlock the parental lock. Like I said before my step-son put in a code (4 digit number) he doesn't remember what he put in, now if anything is higher then pg 13 I cannot watch it. Either someone tells me exactly where the reset button is inside the TV or provides me with a code would be greatly appreciated. Thanking whomever in advance.

The 32" Insignia will require you to push the "display" button on the factory remote successively up to 10 times, simply holding it down WILL NOT unlock this model.

Thank U who ever knew this!!!

If my TV acts like it is locked but is not then what is wrong with it?


When an Insignia TV is locked, it keeps you from watching all of your channels by only displaying a black screen. Insignia TVs are locked from a single button command on the remote control, so it is easy for you to lock the TV by accident. Since Insignia TVs can be locked so easily, it's important to know how to undo this command and unlock the TV yourself. So, unlock your Insignia TV with the push of a button and once again enjoy watching your favorite programs.
• Find the lock button on the Insignia remote control. The lock button is located on the third column from the left on the second row from the top of the remote.

•Stand within operating range of the Insignia TV, then aim the remote at the TV's receiver and press the "Lock" button on the remote control.

• Aim the remote at the TV and press the channel buttons to make sure the TV is unlocked. When the TV is locked, it shows a black screen and does not allow you to view anything else. If the screen remains black, press the "Lock" button again. If this doesn't work, change the batteries in the remote and start over at step .

TV locked with blue screen


Try resetting the TV to factory settings thusly:

Turn on the TV. While holding down the RESET button on the remote
control, press the POWER button on the TV. (The TV will turn itself off, then
back on again.) Release the RESET button.

Child Lock on Insignia TV


I CAN HELP! After my having my Insignia NS-20LCD picture locked for over a year because no one could give me a way to unlock it, a co-worker found the secret!!

When facing the back of the TV, there is another on/off switch on the back on the right side just under the curve (very difficult to see). I didn't even know it was there.

Once you locate, turn the set on using that switch while you hold in the "menu" button on the right side (when facing the front) of the TV. This will reset the television and unlock the screen!
