Question about Insignia Televison & Video

1 Answer

I have a 15" Insignia TV with a DVD player. It was working fine for a year. Then one day it just stopped. I think my daughter may have pushed something on the remote. I can turn it on. When it comes on the screen is white. I can put in a dvd. It sounds like it makes the whiring sound and then nothing happens. Is there something I can do to fix it myself?

You can open the disc tray and blow inside several times to blow of any dust that is on the lens. Or purchase a can of air duster.
If cleaning does not help, then it is likely the laser lens circuit is faulty which is very common and it will need to be replaced

    The tv is not working either. The screen is white for both tv and dvd.

    Are you able to access your menu settings? The white level is controlled by the contrast or color settings. One of the settings may have gotten changed.
    You can try uplugging it for 5 minutes, While unplugged, press and hold the power button for 10 full seconds, then wait 1 minute and plug it back in and see if it resets itself.
    Otherwise if you can access your menu settings, try changing the contrast or the color. If none of these work, you may have a faulty LCD tube in the tv.

    Did you get my other posts.

    The whole screen is white for both tv and dvd.

    There is no drawer for the cd player.

    I am wondering if my daughter pushed something on the remote. Any ideas?

  • shelley_jone Jul 29, 2010

    I will try the things you suggested.

    Is it worth getting the LCD tube fixed or am I looking at throwing the tv away?

    I say 4 years and newer is worth it. Anything older than that really isn't worth it.

Sounds like your TV has lost the DVD channel. Turn off TV and make sure the DVD player is connected to TV and is playing a DVD. Now put you TV on and press the SOURCE or AV button on your TV remote until you can see the DVD channel. In older TVs you may need select channel and tune it manually using the TV setup.

The laser has become damaged/worn-out. There is no fix for it as replacement parts are not made for it.
