Check eBay for a new backlight bulb. If you are willing to do the work to replace it, it is up to you how much it is worth. (I am poor so would fix it myself)

Insignia NS-32E570A11 no picture or sound


Just FYI: I had a friend with an Insignia NS-32E570-A11 with a backlight problem, and it turned out to be one of the actual LEDs in the backlight array was burned out, causing some sort of over-voltage condition that made the backlight sometimes work, and sometimes just flicker for a moment at TV startup and then turn off. We took the panel apart and bypassed the one bad LED (it had a dark spot on it and failed continuity - you can test each LED with a continuity tester and see them light up!), and now the TV/backlight works! Be aware this is tricky bypassing the bad LED, as it is ultrasonically welded to the LED array strip (same technique used to make ICs), so you need to be a very good solderer to bypass it without it breaking the connection.

My ns-lcd42hd09 insignia tv only displays the right side of the screen clearly until the tv is on for about an hour then it will display both sides correctly. Today it never cleared up, stays really dark...


Having same problem. Smacking it or applying pressure often works. Extremely annoying (inconvenient) that a nearly $1000 machine breaks down very soon after one year ( how long the warranty is, of course)

No picture, no sound, does light the insignia sign. Why?


In about 90% of the time the power supply is defective if the TV fails to power ON.
I repair these power supplies, if you need further assistance write to jah2mil@homtail.com

To make it work you have to change it to MSC mode (Only for Windows XP and 2K, it somewhat technical so do it at your own pace and follow instruction:
  • Click on the Start button and Select Settings. Then click on Control Panel.
  • Double click System, and then select the Hardware tab.
  • Click on Device manager.
  • Click on the '+' for Portable device and you will see "Insignia Video Player".
  • Right click and select "Update driver".
  • A Hardware Update Window will open, Select "No, not this time" when windows asks to search for software. Click next. Check the "Install from a list or specific location" checkbox and then click next.
  • On the next screen select "Don't Search. I will choose the driver to install".
  • Click next and then you will see a window showing two drivers that are compatible with your player.
  • To put the device into MSC mode select "USB Mass Storage Device" and click next.
  • A finish installing driver will appear and your device will now appear as a hard drive on your system.
  • To switch back to MTP mode, open the device manager as above and click on the "+" for "Universal Serial bus controllers" and you will see "Insignia Video Player".
  • Then follow the steps above until you reach the "Select the device driver..." screen in which you select "MTP device".

Insignia NS-LCD37-09 turns on but no image


If your TV is less then a year old, still under manufacturers warranty. If not under warranty the defective parts could be the power supply or the back light inverter board. Both boards can be replace easily.
The way to know if you have a defective backlight inverter is by shinning a light from a flash light near the screen with the TV on and check in a 45 degrees angle if you have a dark video in the background, if the video is present then you have a backlight board failure. If no video, then is a power supply failure.
I have both boards if you want to buy them.
Let me know if you require further assistance.

Insignia NS-32LCD Backlight or Inverter bad???


If you've done the flash light test, it could be the inverter board became defective but it could also be that the power supply does not provide the +24VDC to the back light inverter board.
If you could do the +24VDC test using a voltmeter then we can say for sure that the back light inverter board is defective.
Let me know if you need further assistance.

1) Hold the power button (slider) in the on position for about 15-20 seconds to force the player to turn off, if it's already on.

2) Hold the menu button down and simultaneously hold the power button (slider) to the on position.

3) Do not let go when the device turns on. You will then get a screen message in black and white that reads (with a typo):

WARRING !!!

NAND FLASH MEMORY INITIALIZE......

"WARRING !!!" will appear in red (and probably should read "WARNING". You will have the options of "No" and "Yes".

4) Choose "Yes" to re-format your device.

Very Dark Picture


The backlight is dead.

The screen is shot since this is an integrated LCD and backlight. If you can find another screen of similar size you might be able to swap parts out...but it's unlikely.

The unit is failing and is not worth repairing. There is either a short in the wiring that leads to the screen, the inverter board os failing, or the decoder is failing. These are all hardware problems.

There are several tests to find where the problem may be, but the average consumer doesn't have the ability or access to parts to fix these issues.
