Question about Insignia IS 20" TV040919 TV

2 Answers

More channels my husband received this 2005 insignia tv from work as they no longer had a use for it. The used it for demos. There was no book with this and I can't figure out how to add channels. It says skip beside each one that we can get and that is 3 5 8 10 12 and that's all. How do I reprogram this to add all channels that I want?

    Yes, I have the same problem. I programmed the channels for "Air" about 8 months ago, and now have cable, and I am unable to program in the new channels. I use "Auto Search" but it reverts to the original channels. I can select them manually, but not in a row.

No, I have done this, but the problem seems to be that the tuner is corrupted- I do the Auto Search, but it STILL reverts to the channels that were set before. The "Skip" and "Add" functions do not work, either. I need to be able to get into the service technician menu and change it there.

Go into the menu to the "Search" tab, channel down until you are on "auto search" then press "volume up"

this will automatically add channels you can get, you can manually change skip settings there too if you want to not see a channel you get or for some reason add a channel you don't get etc.

I have just the cable hooked up to the tv but it says no signal. A funny thing tho, channel 81-1 shows a box with all the pay for view programs.


Your CRT television, if it was manufactured before 2005, likely cannot receive off-air channels, and many cable companies do not provide analog channels any longer. Your cable company may offer a converter box to accommodate your old television.

My Insignia TV has a blue screen with parental cotrol the problem is I don't have a Control to pres display how can I unlock it???? HELP:(


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

My Insignia hd 1080p tv is only receiving at 720p. I am using HDMI cables and a telus hd tv box. How do I get it to receive at the full 1080p?


I hate to be the one to break this to you, but there is very little 1080p content available to be viewed on your television. Telus TV outputs only 720p or 1080i video, so you are getting the best available picture already. The exception is Blu-ray, where almost all content is played at 1080p if you use an HDMI cable.

Could you tell me why the tv insignia channels swich fron 2 to 3 channel, and the tv value is going up and down by itself? Because I"m not able to watch my programs. Can You help with this?


if you have set top box ,go to main menu ,check on restore factory settings ,put in default password 0000 and press ok,restarting the set top box automatically,waiting for some minutes.

restarting starts scanning all channels one by one and put them on their respective location in channel store.

now ,enjoy with all channels.

same process is done with tv if u have't any set top box ,only RF input from ur cable operator.

make sure your input is antenna/tuner you might be looking at the input of another soure, such as your dvd/vcr thats why when you use the tv remote to go and change the channel it doesn't seem to change.

Won't receive channels above 18, cable not at fault


Your "tuner" in the menu is set on "off air" or "antenna. It should be set on "cable" or "dish". See if you can go into your menu with the buttons on the set and change your tuner setting. Keever
