Hello When an Insignia TV is locked, it keeps you from watching all of your channels by only displaying a black screen. Insignia TVs are locked from a single button command on the remote control, so it is easy for you to lock the TV by accident. Since Insignia TVs can be locked so easily, it's important to know how to undo this command and unlock the TV yourself. So, unlock your Insignia TV with the push of a button and once again enjoy watching your favorite programs. ·Find the lock button on the Insignia remote control. The lock button is located on the third column from the left on the second row from the top of the remote.
·Stand within operating range of the Insignia TV, then aim the remote at the TV's receiver and press the "Lock" button on the remote control. · Aim the remote at the TV and press the channel buttons to make sure the TV is unlocked. When the TV is locked, it shows a black screen and does not allow you to view anything else. If the screen remains black, press the "Lock" button again. If this doesn't work, change the batteries in the remote and start over at step OK
TO REMOVE CHANNELS
1. Press the MENU button on the remote control to open the OSD.
2. Press the Navigation (UP/DOWN) buttons to select the Setup menu.
3. Press OK to open the menu.
4. Press the Navigation (UP/DOWN) buttons to select MANUAL SEARCH.
5. Press OK to select.
6. Select the channel you want to delete from the channel list.
7. Press the Navigation (LEFT) toErase Channel.
8. Press EXIT to close the OSD.
On the remote that came with your TV, press the Display button, which is directly below the Volume Up button. Pressing it once displays the channel number and time, pressing it twice displays the channel number continuously, you must have accidently pressed the Display button twice. Just press it once more to remove the display.
If the remote has never worked, replace the batteries, then you may have to check the programming code (which is abundant on the internet). If it USED to work, but doesn't anymore, you or someone/something else ma have pushed the "DVD", "STB", or "AUX" button. Push the "TV" button and give it a shot.
Unfortunately Sony does not list codes for a Magnasonic TV. Most TV's are manufactured by 2 or 3 main manufacturers, so you might want to check with the place that sold you the TV and ask if another manufacturers codes might work..
I found the solution to this problem . If someone accidentally hits the recall button the display channel will show on the TV screen, To correct this problem hit the Info Button and the display channel will disapear. This works only if you have the standard cable box. I have another TV that uses a dual mode cable box, tried this procedure with analog RCA TV but it didn't work. Don't know if this procedure will work for all display problems, but it worked for me.
Press (on your regular remote for your satellite) the t.v. button, then press info, this worked for me and I tried everything. another viewer posted this solution and it worked great! this is not the original remote, it is the satellite remote.
