Cannot program Insignia IS-TV040919 20" TV on a comcast 3 device remote (red OK button) None of the codes work.(10171,11204,11963,12002)

No problem, This issued will be only resolve with regular TV's, not LCD or PLASMA Tv's. Just press TV botton locate on the top leftside of the remote, right after hold the SETUP button for 3 seconds once the TV botton blink twice go and press 991 then 1 again, right after you have pressed 991 the TV botton will blink twice and when you press 1 will blink twice as well, after those steps keep pressing the channel up botton until your Tv shut off. That will work. Good luck

I have an insignia 24 tv and i cant get the audio

You will also need to connect audio from the audio output on your computer to the TV. I would recommend consulting the owner's manual for your TV as is should include detailed instructions for connecting your computer. Search for your TV model number at

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.

No sound on my 32'' Insignia LCD HDTV

you might try checking the sap (secondary audio programming) option in your tv if it has one make sure it is turned off. if it is off or does not have that option you will most likely have to take it to a repair shop. i would not try to fix it my self as you will do more harm than good.

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.

I repaired it!
My Insignia TV set started showing the same problem reported here, after a static discharge sparked when my wife was cleaning the TV with a cloth.
The information provided by bill47 proved to be very useful. I tried to find the data sheet of the large 64 pin IC, TDA973, I found the TDA 9351, which may be from the same family. I measured the voltage at pin 6 and it was approx. 0.2V. I imagined that if I forced that voltage to a higher value the IC would believe that no button is deppressed and so return to normality. From bill47 comments and my measurements of resistance to ground with the TVset off I estimated that a voltage divider was formed with a 3.3K resistor from +3.3V to pin 6 and 180 ohm to pin 6 to ground. In those conditions, I calculated that if I add a 18 ohm resistor from 3.3V to pin 6 I should force the voltage at that pin to 3V. I first tried with a 120 ohm resistor between pin 61 (peripherial power supply in) (+3.3V) and pin 6. This moved the voltage to 1.7V, the failure persisted, but the effect was different, as if another button, located at the rigth of the Input button, was permanently depressed. This showed me that I was in the right trak. I refined my calculations and replaced the 120 ohm resistor to 15 ohm. That raised the voltage at pin 6 to 2.5 V, and solved the problem. The front panel buttons were disabled (except for the Power button), but that is not a problem, I never use them, I always use the remote control. So I can continue enjoying my Insignia TV set! Thank you bill47 and all the other people who posted their comments.
