Insignia TV doesnt turn on

I am unable to turn on the TV..The power in the TC comes for a split sec and goes off....Best Buy says that there is no warranty on this...TV technician says that it is hard to fix...What to do?? Please help!

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.

    Same problem here. Seems to go in and out of standbye but never really turns on. If I hold down the power button on the remote long enough the TV will come on for about a second and then turn right back off. It was two weeks out of mfg wrnty when it started.

    I have had a power surge at my home. The tv will only show the blue light for a split second and revert back to the red light. The tv sounds like it is about to come on then it does nothing. There is no light on the screen at any point during the power up.

    I have the same problem. TV was working fine. Turned TV off and 2 hours later attempted to turn it on again and the TV was dead except for the Insignia power light blinking off and on in 5 second cycles. Turned TV off over night to "cool down" and still have same problem. I've owned this TV for about 13 months. Warranty expires after 12. Help

    red light comes on when plugged in but goes off when you press the power button to switch it on. I tried changing the fuse but still same problem.

    Same problem here also. Took it back to Best Buy while it was still under warranty and it stayed fixed maybe a month. Now it's out of warranty. Blue light comes on for a second then changes to red and won't come on.

    Had TV for one month and it started to turn off by itself. Best Buy repair man came and while he was about to check it ,tv turn off. Then tv came on by itself! As soon as he left tv lost picture. Two weeks later I'm still waiting for parts that are on back order. I've call best buy and asked for a new tv( have insurance) they have put in a request since this if the first time I called for service. As far as i'm concern,I've had three diffrent problems with this tv. It's a lemon!!!!! Don't BUY!!!!!!!!!!

    I have a 32" widescreen tube from them and it does the same thing too! Makes a sound as if it is turning on and off constantly and it just won't turn on and work. I have to unplug it to make the on/off/on/off stop.

    This happened 1 week outside of the 1 year warranty!!!

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.
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 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.

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 other words the tv would not be worth anything.
