Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

TV is a 4 year old 37'' LCD the piture goes to blue screen and sound drops to zero whenever an explosion or bright white screen is broadcast, even during commercials. This is true for the DirecTV feed whether on live broadcast or recorded on the DVR(problem records to DVR). The length of the outage depends on how long the bright screen is present normal 3 to 10 seconds and system rests. Red off-light displays during outage and returns to green when screen outage is over. No problem experienced when TV connected to DVD player or VCR during explosions or bright white scenes. DirecTV has replaced the box twice, and re-wired the dish once no help. They claim it is the TV. Still think it may be in the DirecTV line, Three other TV's(all non-LCD) and DirecTV lines in house do not show this problem

I have a proview lcd screen and it palys the tv shows in back ground but it's a dark screen like dark blue no picture. Volume and everything working but just no picture. What can i do.


Show a torch light on the screen for a distance, and if you can see the picture, the backlight is not lighting up. Check for its settings on the remote, if you have that option. Check also the settings of brightness/contrast/sharpness/color. If you still have problems, please call in a qualified service technician.

When i turn on tv screen is bright white instead of blue!!!


This is a problem that should be taken in for service as there could be many problems causing the problem. The power supply could not be supplying voltage to run the video card or you could have a failure in the video card itself. Try calling this number for Insignia Customer service help. 1-877-467-4289. Hope this helps you with your problem.
