Question about Insignia IS-LCDTV32 32 in. Television

1 Answer

Insignia LCD 26 inch

Whenever I play PS3 games there is a crackling noise from the speakers. However when using a normal TV channel the speakers work fine at all levels. Any ideas? I have the PS3 hooked up via a hdmi cord if that helps.

    I exchanged the TV for a new one. Same problem. Adventually did the solution above and took off the Dolby Digital on the PS3 to normal mode. Solution fixed. My Samsung doesn't have the problem but all Insignias do. Make sure if you have combo ps3 and Insignia tv take off the dolby 5.1

Help with insignia 24 inch flat screen? the av channel will not show the channel where i can play my ps3?at?

It sounds like yoru PS3 has stopped handshaking with your tv. It can happen. It's possible your brother disrupted the connection by unplugging the PS3 before it was shut down. You can try turning on the PS3 first, and then turning on the tv, or vice versa. If that doesn't work, you may need to invest in a cheap HDMI splitter, to plug the PS3 into, and then send the signal from the splitter to the TV. It has happened to me with a computer with the same hardware, once with an LED tv, and once with my surround sound receiver, completely out of the blue. You can try switching HDMI cables, sources, doing putting the tv into maintenance mode and resetting the software. If none of that works, your only option may be to use an HDMI splitter. I did extensive research and read numerous reviews before I settled on this model, due to many recommendations:
ViewHD 2 Port 1x2 Powered HDMI Mini Splitter for 1080P & 3D ' Model: VHD-1X2MN3D
It's available on Amazon here:
Amazon com ViewHD 2 Port 1x2 Powered HDMI Mini Splitter for 1080P 3D Model...
Just in case your HDMI cable was damaged when your brother unplugged it, go ahead and get yourself a decent HDMI cable. The Amazon HDMI cables work just fine.

Insignia 26" HDTV 1080p, I just bought it the

First off what type of input are you using going from the ps3 to the tv. If your using HDMI try changing the different video settings. Black ops actually has a lot of problems right now on ps3. So I wouldn't use that as the basis of what is working or not, I would try other games to see if it's working. Adjust the video settings on the ps3 and see if that helps. If that doesn't try using component cables and see what that does for you.
Thank you,

Silly question -- but are you sure your Sony TV is on the correct HDMI channel? My 32 inch LCD has HDMI1, HDMI2, HDMI3. You must make sure you plug the PS3 into the correct HDMI channel and make sure you're tuned into the same one.

While playing call of duty 4, the explosions make the TV's speaker go to a loud crackling noise, Only this game does it.

That's because explosions are pretty much only low frequencies, otherwise known as bass. Your tv crackles because the low frequency emitters of your tv are either of low quality or malfunctioning. If you lower the volume of your tv it should fix the problem.

Blue ray wont play movies on new tv

Are you sure the tv is 1080p capable? Usually when "mode is not supported" is displayed, it means that the tv can not handle the signal format that is being input to it. If you are using HDMI, then signal formatting is usually handled automatically. If you are using component video, you will probably have to tell the PS3 to step down the signal to either 1080i or 720p.
