Insignia LCDTV 26

My TV is 2 years old and is seldom use because of its location (spare bedroom). My tv will turn on but will shut itself off after less than 10 seconds. What should we do? Best Buy won' t repair it because I did not buy the extended warranty.

Can you please help me?

Re: Insignia LCDTV 26

There are other places you can take monitors to get worked on. I believe just about any TV repair facility will also be able to repair LCD TV's as well. You may want to first try something else first however. Go buy yourself a UPS Battery Backup that has AVR (Automatic Voltage Regulation) built-in. I'd try doing that before paying someone to try and fix it. Besides, if that doesn't do the trick, then you can always take it back for a full refund.

Volume turns up by itself

This might be a remote control issue, so try this: remove the batteries from your remote, then press all of its buttons and install new batteries. If the problem persists after that, your TV may require repairs. Service can be obtained, if needed, by carrying your TV in to the place of purchase.

TV keeps cutting off

A very common problem for this set has been bad electrolytic capacitors on the power supply. There are 2 in this model that are 1000uf at 35 volts that will commonly cause this. When they go bad they will normally be domed or mushroomed on top rather than be flat, so they should be easy to locate. If you can solder, they would be easy to change yourself. You can get the caps just about anywhere online for only a few dollars. A repair shop would probably charge around $100 to make this repair if it is indeed bad capacitors.

Check your warrenty to see if the tv is still covered. If not, I would just buy another dvd player and attach it to the tv, it would be cheaper then repearing the tv.

These LCDs have a feature to turn OFF after some time if they do not sense any signal getting into the TV, that is why when you use it as a PC monitor and leave ON; it will turn OFF by itself.
The short term solution to make the LCD power up properly when using it as a PC monitor would be to unplug it when it turns OFF by itself and plug it back in.
Let me know if you need further assistance.

We need a large display Simple to use remote for insignia lcdtv 26in. Of course the code for the tv is needed.

Go out and buy her one of those super cheap Universal Remotes. They cost less than $10 and work great (if you get a decent one) for just about any TV & LCD TV. And the cheap ones generally don't have all those crazy menu option buttons all over them. There's one I saw at Lowes that looks a lot like a flip-up cell phone. The basic buttons are on the outside and the "extra" buttons are on the inside. I learned just recently that to program an Insignia LCDTV to a Universal Remote you use the Mitsubishi Code.

Caption keeps coming on without even putting it on

Look in your manual! The menu functions on some of these Insignia TV's are hard to see and use because of their location. Using the remote should be a lot easier, as long as you still have the original that came with the LCDTV.
