    Same problem.  TV won't turn on.  TV sucks!  Had it less than a year and Best Buy and Manufacture won't do anything about it!

  • Jimharry Feb 18, 2008

    I noticed my LCD32 will turn on and stay on when it is cold (it is currantly in unheated garage), but won't turn on when its warm--LCD screen flashes for a split second, then nothing. I believe it is a power supply, but not sure where to get a new one. I am pretty savvy with working on tech things--PC's, Copiers, etc.

    I have been through two set with the same problem on both sets sound like a design flaw to me.

  • Anonymous Feb 21, 2008

    I am having the same problem. The television seems to be turning on and off by itself and it makes kind of a popping sound each time it turns on. It is a 36 or 37 inch television and I have had it for less than a year.

    i changed the mother board in my insignia ns-32 lcd tv and it still doesnt work what else can i change

  • Anonymous Mar 26, 2008

    We are having the same problems. The tv takes about 5 minutes to go on after we turn it on. It makes the popping sounds also. Best Buy said to call Insignia but from the problems expressed, it might be best to buy a different brand next time.

  • Eileen9557 Mar 29, 2008

    I have an NS-LCDTV32 (not IS) and having the same problem--and it the power light comes on you can't turn it off.

  • iratherfly Feb 05, 2009

    Same exact problem at exact same time. Happened for the first time last week and after cycling it on an off and quickly getting to one of the menus I managed to change TV sources and it stayed on afterwards. The problem returned again today but the cycles are too short for me to get to any menu this time. Best buy however were nice to me over the phone (even before I told them that I have extended warranty). They found the problem on their database, so you and me are not the first to have it happen to them. They attribute it usually to dirt and dust or excessive humidity inside the TV. A technician will come in and look at it. In the meantime - no TV for me. This TV is 3 years and 2 months old now. Luckily I bought a 4 year service plan with it. Worth the $130. If anyone knows of a trick or a master reset switch for this TV - please post!

  • emilyjoellef Feb 05, 2009

    I also have the same problem, We have had it for about 2 years and about 4 days just wouldn't turn on. Now the insignia logo blinks red when you press the power button. Can this be fixed or should I buy a new tv?

    Insignia IS-LCDTV32 my dad was watching it and it just turned black, blue light comes on but no picture and no sound. It is only 2 years old.

  • John Long Apr 07, 2009

    TV has power but screen would not come on. No menu, no nothing.



    Saw best solution post and replaced the three caps. Two of them were visibly smoked. My caps however were 1000uF at 35v. Replaced them with 680's as posted. The sales guy said they may burnout faster but they won't hurt anything. So if your caps say 1000uF, buy the 1000's.

    After reicieving a static shock while pressing the power button, blue light just turns on than off. No picture at all.

    my 13 month insiginia tv bought at best by (no warranty) 34" turned off manually and was shocked on/off cycle goes on 10 sec the off one second and repeats my repair man said the main power board is burned out and not available

  • cpbedor May 17, 2009

    no sound, no picture, takes about 5-10 minutes for it to actually get a picture after it cycles off and on every couple seconds.



    I did buy the service plan, which I was pissed about at the time, but the tech is coming monday to check it out. Ideally, I want him to declare it unfixable so I can get a different brand and a much larger one.



    This TV has been the main TV in our home since 11/25/2005 and we've not had a problem with it other than my 3 year old keeps losing the remote for it.



    I suppose I can update this entry Monday night after the service guy is finished. Cross your fingers that he says it's no good!

My insignia 42in has no picture. owned it for one year. nobody is resposible and to expensive to fix. I say do not buy anything from Best Buy for their lack of customer service and do not buy Insignia televisions. Defective and cheap. Read alot of complaints about both. Spread the word and we can all put the pressure on both companies or let them go broke. I am buying another big screen at CASCO at least the will let you return defective merchandise. I also read that Best Buy knew about the problem and still sold these Insignia tv's. Don't buy either pass this on!

Followup...
Technician indeed came over and reported the power source as bad. I can no longer turn the TV on - it just cycles on and off now.
Repair guy also want to replace the mainboard (motherboard) but I think they only do that because they cannot find a readily available replacement power source and if they add the motherboard to the repair bill it will be so high that the Best Buy warranty will prefer giving me a new TV, letting the repair people will be off the hook.

Can't stress enough how important it is to get those extended service plans...

SOURCE: Insignia TV doesnt turn on

You should go to Insignia website and complain, about you problem either to their customer service department or sales department. Explain the problem to them and tell them that you thought you were covered by the warranty for any failure of the television not caused by you.Try to speak to people incharge of the departments if you can and keep calling asking to speak to the v.p.'s of sales.Tell them that best buy treated you badly and that you paid good money for the tv there, and they will not honor the service contract. Persistence is needed here. Hope this will help you with your problem.

I have a Plasma TV with black screen and 6 red light flashes.


These blinks [flashes] are fault indication (Error Codes). From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit section inside it. This will make repair easy. These are called blinking codes. Make sure about the exact number of blinking of the standby/power LED, by switching On & OFF the set, for at least two times. Count it carefully. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. It has details about blinking codes, and fault locating procedure, to many popular brand TVs and other devices. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/
Blinking codes details to many popular brand TVs are given. Surf the site with patience.

My tv starts on at least the green button goes on, but we don't see nothing on the screen


Insignia are a low-end Best Buy brand, and as such their reliability is poor.

If you're plugged in, the inputs are set correctly and the power comes on on the TV but you receive no picture, there is an issue with the TV itself.

Insignia offers a 2-year warranty, but you must have the original box and must be willing to pay for shipping. If you lack the original box or your purchase was longer than 30 days ago and you didn't purchase the extended warranty from Best Buy, you're most likely going to need a new TV, as they cost more to repair than they're worth.

Picture won't come up


Insignia is Best Buy's house brand. If it's still under warranty, contact Best Buy. If not, find an electronic repair shop you think you can trust and take it in. There is absolutely nothing you (unless you're an electronics technician) can do to fix it. I know that's not what you wanted to hear, but, that's the way life is now.

Insignia IS-TV040919 color problem


The tv has been dropped or banged around, you can try to get a degaussing coil and fix the colors, if you cant pull them back out than it would need a CRT/Picture tube...in other words the tv would not be worth anything.
