Question about Televison & Video

Open Question

Insignia NS-pdp32-09 32" Plasma television won't power on. I have had the problem of the TV turning off at random, which was fixed by unplugging the television and reseating the plug before turning it back on. Now it has turned off and will not turn back on. The standby light shows red when it is plugged in, but the unit will not power on. First step of further troubleshooting, inspection of the power supply, revealed 2 vented caps with minimal leakage. They read "SamWha WB 10V 3300uf" The unit is out of warranty so I would like to attempt to repair it myself. Will any brand capacitor work in this situation, so long as they are 10v 3300uf? And is there anything else I should look out for?

SOURCE: capacitor size

Sure- that's the maximum rating. In fact, if Polaroid had used 35v rated caps in the first place, we probably wouldn't all be replacing them.

BTW another replacement that worked perfectly here.

SOURCE: capacitor size

You can get any size/type capacitor from DigiKey.  See this thread for the part numbers I used: http://www.fixya.com/support/r741402-polaroid_flm_373b_lcd_tv_black_screen

SOURCE: No power on Westinghouse LTV-46w1 Television

This kind of failure is very common; that is why I suggest that one should keep the old CRT TV, buy a converter and put them both in the garage or basement so they are handy when our s*e*x*y new sets go belly up.
With fair confidence I can say that the main power supply has failed.
If you want to try this on your own, it only will require the removal of a few screws and a flashlight.
- Unplug the set overnight. - Remove the rear housing  - Use some logic and these tips; look for a separate board with larger than average parts on it and seems closer to the power cord than others. This will be the power supply.
Check the board over for something that looks like a part number and record it. If you find more than one, one of them will be the bare board number, the second (sometimes on a sticker instead of printed directly on the board) should be the part number for the assembly.
Search for the Westinghouse service company nearest you and call them with this info. Ask if they repair these or just sell new ones. If it is the latter, don't pitch the old one, continue to look for a repair service that will take it on after you have the new one in place and can watch your favorites again. The new supply will likely cost between $90 - $150 and with a little common sense, most anyone can remove and replace these in the set. Expect any repair to cost about the same as a new supply; US technical labor costs more than Chinese assembly labor. 
These supplies can be as reliable as the primitive older type but companies refuse to use the high-grade components necessary to give them a long life so they fail much sooner than the old, less efficient kind known as 'linear' supplies.

SOURCE: INSIGNIA LCD won't turn on

replace 2 condensers in the power supply with greater voltage ones.original are 1000uf 35volt...use 1000uf 65volt...99cents each
power circuit is made to fail with typical tv industry tactics...the warranty is reflected by the life of their condensors (capacitors) average life is 2000 hours..
easy...huh
if your a smoker...you must clean the button cover as they get stuck on with your stupid tobacco residue. 75% of all LCD tv's that smokers own fail this way...
\tough huh?

My insignia plasma tv has the LED light blinking red twice, help?


Hard to find parts sometimes for this brand---I would begin with the power supply by looking first at the filter caps:

It'll turn on and run but it flickers the entire time. its happened before but quits after a while. this time though, it won't stop. any suggestions?


Best bet would be to unplug it completely and let it sit for about five minutes, plug it back in and turn it on, if it's still flickering there's more than likely something wrong with the backlight or the power supply. All Insignia TV's carry a 2 year manufactures warranty, so if it's less than two years old just take it to a Best Buy and have it serviced. It'll be gone for a few weeks, but either issue is an expensive fix.

We just bought a NS-PDP50HD-09 Insignia 50" plasma


Although we would not be able to assist you with power issue you're having with your TV, I can assure you that the issue with your new HD Insignia TV not turning on has nothing to do with the DISH Network receiver you have connected to it.

I have Insignia ns-p42q-10a tv, there is a loud hum when the volume is on when you mute the volume it goes away? Any suggestions?


check other inputs AVI, HDMI,,

do you here the hum on all inputs?

The hum maybe from a bad ground loop,, unplug all pluged in inputs, [dvd,games,radio,ect] <--check for hum.

If the hum is gone, plug inputs back in one at a time and test,,

When you find the source of the hum, go get a ground loop isolator to fix.

Insignia NS-LTDVD26 won't turn on


It is always recommended to ensure that your TV is powered down before connecting or disconnecting cables. Unfortunately, it is likely that your TV requires service for the power issue.
