    Bought a 19" insignia off of Ebay. Stated that it had no picture or sound, but the led light worked. Bought it anyway.

    The solution to use a hair dryer worked. The guy who criticize this solution does not know what he's talking about. I'm thrilled. THANX!

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.

P.S. Before you assign a rating, please make sure that the issue is resolved or you are satisfied. If not, please post back as to what you did, and/or any other questions you may have, and I will try to assist you as best I can. Please do not assign an ‘Inappropriate’ or ‘Thanks for trying’ rating if your issue is not resolved after the first response itself, as sometimes a bit of to and fro dialogue may be necessary before we can find a fix or an answer to your query.

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.
Good luck.

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.

How can I reset my insignia tv #NS-LCD32 to global volume unlock with a RCA universal remote

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.

Color separation ~ Insignia 32" NS-LCD32


1. Unplug unit from wall for 3 minutes;
2. Press & hold Power button for 1 minute;
3. Plug in unit.
OR:
1. Unplug for 3 minutes.
2. Plug in unit.
3. HOLD Power Button as unit starts ... hold until the unit flickers on then off twice.


This effectively returns the components to factory specs, much like resetting a computer. It offers a *temporary* fix, lasting 45 minutes to hours. All depends on the unit.

Mom has an Insignia 32" with the same color separation problem, which worsens as the day progresses. Best results achieved while television is cold.

Dust in the unit could contribute to the problem ... try to keep the unit dust free as possible.

My tv starts on at least the green button goes on, but we don't see nothing on the screen


Insignia are a low-end Best Buy brand, and as such their reliability is poor.

If you're plugged in, the inputs are set correctly and the power comes on on the TV but you receive no picture, there is an issue with the TV itself.

Insignia offers a 2-year warranty, but you must have the original box and must be willing to pay for shipping. If you lack the original box or your purchase was longer than 30 days ago and you didn't purchase the extended warranty from Best Buy, you're most likely going to need a new TV, as they cost more to repair than they're worth.
