Hello I have a 32"

More likely the power supply may have died, you should try this first though, unplug it for about an hour to see if it will reset itself. If it still does not work, then you need to inspect the power supply main AC fuse, also look for any bad caps with domed tops, burnt components, etc.
See what the boards look like here:

If you are going to DIY and have proper tools, electronics knowledge, and know safety precaution then please read on:

Capacitors kit: he can make you a set of caps.
Or, just make sure to use caps with low ESR, 105c, high ripple current and long life rating such as PANASONIC FM or FC series.
Please post back what you find.
Please leave rating if it helps.

Sound but not picture - capacitors look okay, hair dryer didn't w

if you feel the power supply is good then the next item would be the main pcb. if the back light is coming on with no video then the t-con board is bad but power supply seems to be most common for me.

Had the same problem, Insignia 32 would click on then go off. About 6 months ago I found (somewhere on the net) a guy who explained that he changed blown capacitors. As I recall he even posted a picture. I found the blown capacitors and replaced them with larger capacitors (less than $20) problem solved...
But now my screen image is showing only half a picture and is pulsing on a off.
I think I'm going to make a Wii commercial......GL

Insignia IS-LCDTV32 Does not Power on

This is most likely due to 2 problems -Temperature or a bust capacitor,

1. There is a simple trick...just warm the back of the TV with a hair dryer for 5-7 mins after you have unplugged the TV. Look for the little areas of holes in the back panel of TV. Use these as your guide at where to use hairdryer., but don't hold the dryer too close(say 5-6inches away). (Make sure the dryer is on High heat). If the TV doesn't turn on after you have heated it up (like it tries to come on but then turns off) you need to unplug the TV again, this resets it. And repeat those steps till it works. Reseting the TV after it fails to turn on is the key. Also, just leave the TV on. Don't turn in off. Since it is LCD, it doesn't take much power...only a few bucks extra a month for your utility bill.

2. You can also try this..if you unplug the TV, and hold in the power button while plugging it back in, this will reset the TV, and sometimes it comes on.

3. If you want to go in for a long term solution, you can easily replace the whole power board (should be about $20 or so), or just change the faulty capacitors. You can make out which are faulty, because their caps will be swollen on top. Here's a pic
Check the specifications of the faulty capacitors, and get the replacements from your local electronics shop. If you are comfortable with this, you can use a pair of needle nose pliers to G-E-N-T-L-Y pull out the defunct capacitors. Once that is done, solder in the new capacitors carefully. If are unsure how to do this, try to get a friend who knows how to do this kinda stuff do it for you.

PS. The capacitors are usually 680 - 1000 micro farad and 35V. however, if you dont find 35V, you could use a 50V as well. They will be slightly larger, but you should be able to get them to fit in.

You can buy the capacitors online from HERE or HERE if you wish..They cost $0.068 - $0.85 each depending on the model.

Hope that helps...Should you have any further questions, please feel free to post them here.

TV has a hard time turning on

There are some capacitors on the power supply that are failing on this model...I have repaired several of these now for this complaint.. If you examine the power supply circuit board you will notice there are some caps that are or appear to be swelled up.. Some times the defective caps are not obvious..they need to be tested with a good cap meter... The caps need to be changed...or the power supply module is a replaceable a whole part...this TV was designed to be what they call board level repair... I would have a tech check out the caps in the power circuit.. This board is very easy to get too...the caps are not expensive the cost of these parts will run you less than $20.00 if the caps are not your problem then the digital controller is going bad.. The chances of the LCD panel being bad are slim...but could be.. I have personally repaired several of these TV's.. You can get parts for this set...just not as easy to get as the typical Sony or Samsung would be.. Good luck...
