The way it is behaving and the red light usually indicate that there is a problem in the power section of the tv.

This isn't really a home repair. So what you need to do is contact the sore you purchased from and check for warranty and where to get it repaired. You can also check local tv repair shops if there are any near you or go through Insignia customer support and find out where the repair depot is. If you have no warranty coverage you only want to get repair estimates. Then you want to check out the prices for a new replacement tv.

Depending on the parts and labour rates it sometimes is much cheaper just to go out and buy a new tv. If you have a good tv shop tech there it can be fairly cheap. Bad ones can be just as expensive as the rest. Anyway once you know the costs you can then decide to repair or replace. Aside from the quality of the technician the reason for the difference in the cost will be if the power board is separate or part of the main board or if the tech can just replace a component or has to replace the entire board. As long as you check a few places you will know whats the best way to go dollar wise.

Only getting red light


Is this when the TV is on or off? If it occurs while the TV is on, is it constant or intermittent?

Try this: Unplug the TV. Hold down the power button on the TV for 30 seconds, while the TV is still unplugged. Then plug in the TV and turn it back on.

Similarly, power cycle the TV: turn it off, unplug it and leave unplugged for a couple minutes. Plug it back in and power it on. Reset settings back to factory defaults. If all else fails, I would recommend pursuing repair/replacement options.

My Samsung LN32C450 won't turn on and the capacitors are fine. What's wrong?


You were on the right track, it sounds like the power supply board is gone. It's more likely one of the power chips that went. (The capacitors are usually not old enough to have gone bad yet.)
(part of it still works is why you get the blue LED when you plug it in.)

If you decide to try to fix it yourself, BE CAREFUL! The power supply board has capacitors that can hold high voltages for many hours after the TV's been unplugged.The equivalent of sticking your finger in a light socket.

You'll need the part number off the power supply to get a replacement.

** TV won't turn on.** No picture or sound. Please Help !


If the red light won't come on it is not getting power.First,try plugging it in to a different outlet,or unplug one of the gadgets you know is working and plug the tv in there.You are simply switching.If you know that there is power coming from the outlet and it still won't come on then you'll have to check the cord;don't go much farther than that without expert help.

Ihave a insignia ns-lcd47hd-09 tv. when i press the power button the light turns blue but no picture comes on only black screen.


I think your insignia is set for SHOP mode instead of HOME mode. I changed mine to HOME and it's working fine now. Press your menu button and then scroll down to setup. You're looking for Plug and PLay which should be the very first choice. If it's greyed out as mine was you'll have to change your imput from HDMI to TV in order to get to the P&P. Once you're in the Plug and Play your first choice is language. The second should be SHOP or HOME. Make sure to select HOME. You can skip scanning for channels. This fixed my problem with the blue light. The store uses SHOP so if someone plays around and changes something, all they have to do is shut off the TV and turn it back on. Please let me know if this works.
