Question about Insignia IS-LCDTV32 32 in. Television
I have an insignia LCD32 and there's no picture or sound, but the tv is powered on b/c the green light is on. what do i do? the best buy people can't come by until a month from now!
This is most likely due to 2 problems -Temperature or a bust capacitor,
1. There is a simple trick...just warm the back of the TV with a hair dryer for 5-7 mins after you have unplugged the TV. Look for the little areas of holes in the back panel of TV. Use these as your guide at where to use hairdryer., but don't hold the dryer too close(say 5-6inches away). (Make sure the dryer is on High heat). If the TV doesn't turn on after you have heated it up (like it tries to come on but then turns off) you need to unplug the TV again, this resets it. And repeat those steps till it works. Reseting the TV after it fails to turn on is the key. Also, just leave the TV on. Don't turn in off. Since it is LCD, it doesn't take much power...only a few bucks extra a month for your utility bill.
2. You can also try this..if you unplug the TV, and hold in the power button while plugging it back in, this will reset the TV, and sometimes it comes on.
3. If you want to go in for a long term solution, you can easily replace the whole power board (should be about $20 or so), or just change the faulty capacitors. You can make out which are faulty, because their caps will be swollen on top. Here's a pic
Check the specifications of the faulty capacitors, and get the replacements from your local electronics shop. If you are comfortable with this, you can use a pair of needle nose pliers to G-E-N-T-L-Y pull out the defunct capacitors. Once that is done, solder in the new capacitors carefully. If are unsure how to do this, try to get a friend who knows how to do this kinda stuff do it for you.
PS. The capacitors are usually 680 - 1000 micro farad and 35V. however, if you dont find 35V, you could use a 50V as well. They will be slightly larger, but you should be able to get them to fit in.
You can buy the capacitors online from HERE or HERE if you wish..They cost $0.068 - $0.85 each depending on the model.
Hope that helps...Should you have any further questions, please feel free to post them here.

Take it to a shop or call your warrenty holder...not where you bought it. Go over their heads and you might get it done a lot faster. If you mess with it, you void your warrenty and you are then going to have to buy a new set. Your choise. If no one close will come to your house, call some shops in your area and ask them if they can handle a warrenty job for your set. DON'T do it yourself...this is an exspensive lession you don't need to learn.

I can't believe what I just read! First, explain what a 'bust' capacitor is please. I'll hold. Now, and we'll move past the absurdity of holding a blow dryer to the back of the tv. You just informed a consumer to PLUCK the offending capacitors from the power supply circuit board and, oh yea, you may have to solder the new one's in. Then, after they destroy the board, they'll be able to find a new for around 20 bucks!! Do you sit in front of the tv and make this stuff up as you go? Anyone stupid enough to follow these 'instructions' deserves whatever befalls them.

So, For anybody who doesn't know yet, you do not need the factory remote to restore button functions to your Insignia IS-LCDTV26. All you need to do is program a universal remote that can power on and off the TV, then
"**press the "MUTE" Button 10 times successively**"
and Voila! Unlocked, you should see the status appear in the corner of the TV if everything worked, if not try another tv code or try the manual search function on the remote to find another compatible code set.
