TV turns on for a split second then back to standyby
Our Insignia LCDTV32 has started turning on for a **** second then off again and won't repeat this unless unplugged for a few minutes and plugged back in. The red standby light flashes briefly to blue, the screen flashes blue briefly then shuts off, and the standby light goes back to red. Any Ideas?
Re: TV turns on for a split second then back to standyby
I think your capacitor is blown, do a google search for insignia, lcd, capacitor...
you can buy another one for about $2 but its a pain to install, you can also instead buy a new powerboard for about $80, its an east install and you wont blow more capacitors

1.) Unplug the TV, and hold in the power
button while plugging it back in, this will reset the TV, and sometimes
it comes on.
2.) 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

I replaced the caps--about a buck each. The bad caps were swollen, and soldering in new caps wasn't hard to do. THANKS!!!
