Question about Insignia 42" Flat-Panel Plasma HDTV

1 Answer

Mine does the same thing but it also shuts itself

My Insignia INP4219 does the same thing but it also shuts itself off after a few seconds... It will turn back on but the picture is still gone (black), the sound still works, and a few seconds later it shuts off again. I could keep this up all day but I fear that I have to go and buy a new TV!

    Thanks but this is an older unit(3 years) so there isn't any warranty left... If I recall correctly, I did buy it from Best Buy so maybe I will find out what they have to say. Any other possible ideas that might explain what's happening with this thing?

    Thanks,

These usually have a good Warranty as this is a Best Buy product. They would be sure to fix it under the waranty if you take it in. They would be able to give you an estimate of repair if you take it in also. They may have a flat fix fee or possibly an hourly fee along with what the power supply or bad part cost.
Usually a power supply problem. 42" is still an expensive TV to replace. May be best to repair.

    If you have a good A/V Geek or TV repair guy. They maybe able to find the bad components 'much likely, capacitors' that have gone bad and replace them and once again it will work just fine.
    The issue is that they are making the cpacitors so small that they just don't work as well as their larger older parents did. Making these things to throw away. Unfortunatly it may be best to buy an extended waranty on the next one. A TV usually last you 10 years. the adverage flat panel is 4 years by the way before some type of problem arriases.

My Insignia converter shuts off after few seconds


Try power-cycling the unit to reset it (turn it off and unplug for several minutes). Also, remove the batteries from the remote control and push all of its buttons, then install a fresh battery. If these steps don't resolve the issue, you may return with the unit to the place of purchase to pursue service options.

SET CLOCK. TRY TO USE. IT SHUTS OFF AFTER A FEW SECONDS.


I found an envelope with troubleshooting info inside the microwave on the left side behind the front vent. A troubleshooting flowchart was included which indicates that this problem is caused by the high voltage capacitor. I got mine out pretty easy and ordered one from appliancepartspros.com for $55 (which includes expedited shipping. I hope this info helps.

Insignia TV


Ok, I had the exact same problem last summer, and Kevellen told me of a problem that Insignia tv's have: the circuit that controls whether the tv is off or on is messed up, and it can be fixed, but its not cheap.

http://www.fixya.com/support/t924975-wierdness_tv

Anyway, if the t.v. is still under warranty, I would say return it to the store and see if you cant get a new one, and from what I researched online after this incident, I will not buy an Insignia aver again.
hope this helps,

Tv turns off by itself


Try unplugging the cord for a few seconds and then plug back in. This happens on one of our TVs. Using this procedure takes care of the problem. It is like something needs to be reset.

Simply all you need to do is hold the on/off button for roughly 15 seconds. Sometimes it may take longer than that. Be pateint. Soon it should turn off. This happens to mine all of the time!

Hope this helps :-)
