Need to reset password

I think my daughter changes the password on our Insignia IS-TV040919. Is there anyway to reset the password to factory default?

    I can't blame my daughter. I have the same model and have forgotten the password. I hope someone else answers your question so that I may benefit.

OK. I fixed it!
I'm not sure 100% what did it, but think you'll get it to work with the following.

I followed the instructions on how to get the TV set into "test" mode, that were posted by Rotareneg:
(I found these instructions at a couple of sites)

I think that just putting it into test mode resets the password to the default, '000000'. However, I pressed a lot of other buttons while I had the controller open. The only setting I changed (and then put back) while in test mode was on Menu 1. I changed the Program value, which turned out to be just changing the channel.

At some point I realized that I could get all my channels, however, I found that all settings were reset default, including antenna reception vs cable. I change all back and did a celebration dance.

Good luck.

You should be able to reset the TV to factory defaults via the onscreen menu system. Also, power-cycling the TV (turn it off and unplug it for several minutes) can serve to reset. Additional troubleshooting steps can be found in the owner's manual.

I'm not sure what you mean by locked, but try power-cycling your TV (turn it off and unplug for several minutes). You might also try resetting to factory defaults. More details can be found in the owner's manual. If these steps don't resolve the problem, you may carry it in to the place of purchase to pursue service options.

Could you tell me why the tv insignia channels swich fron 2 to 3 channel, and the tv value is going up and down by itself? Because I"m not able to watch my programs. Can You help with this?

if you have set top box ,go to main menu ,check on restore factory settings ,put in default password 0000 and press ok,restarting the set top box automatically,waiting for some minutes.

restarting starts scanning all channels one by one and put them on their respective location in channel store.

now ,enjoy with all channels.

same process is done with tv if u have't any set top box ,only RF input from ur cable operator.

Insignia is-tv040919 remote codes

The Insignia is-tv040919 is a Cytron and the code is 11326. But no Comcast multifunction remote contains that code -- so you cannot enter it manually and the 991 search function will not find it. I discovered the make and code by the serendipity of having a cable box with a multifunction remote and several DTAs with the small, black two function remotes. I first installed the Insignia on a DTA and the remote programmed quickly. I just moved that tv to the room with the cable box with the multifunction remote and mayhem ensued. I got an $8 RCA 3 function remote today and it's working great on the Comcast cable box, a DVD player and, drum roll please, our old friend the is-tv040919.

Parental Control

I think the default password is all 0's, but I'm sure they told you that if you called them. the only thing I could think of would be to try "easy" passwords such as all 1's all 0's etc.
