Question about Insignia 37" LCD Flat-Panel HDTV

1 Answer

My Insignia 37" has a problem. The picture is everything I want it to be, but the problem is that it only turns on sometimes. When I push/hold the power button down, I can see the light slightly flicker and only sometimes it turns on. It seems like it's trying to turn on ( I get a faint flicker of light and a slight power up sound ), but it's a 50/50 chance that it will. This problem usually happens when the room/weather is cold. I find that when I turn on the heater and get the room warmer, it has a greater chance of turning on... Any ideas why this could be?

I asume that the "on/off" button is covered with plastic. When the temperature is cold, the plastic cover shrinks and and puts pressure on the button underneath towards the "off" position, when the temperature is warmer the plastic expands and releases the button. What you could try is to take a hair dryer and some sticky tape and heat up the plastic membrane.When warm,apply the sticky tape to the plastic and pull on it and hold it until the plastic cools off. This should stretch the plastic membrane over the pushbutton and fix the problem. Caution, do not get to close with the hair dryer or you will melt the plastic membrane. Good luck

I had the same problem with an Insignia 42" 1080p. Turn off the tv power and disconnect all cables (i started with power cable, then HD cables then HDMI). Wait 30 seconds with nothing plugged in, then I plugged everything back in (in reverse order) and it works fine.

Insignia ns-lcd42hd screen flutters


This television is having trouble with sync circuits. It probably has some component adding erratic noise voltage to the circuit causing the instability in the sync lock circuits. The solution is to locate the bad component with an oscilloscope by following the signal path with oscilloscope probe until you find the irregular signal and then replace the part. This part could be either capacitors or ringing resistors.It may also be a component in you solid state signal processor. You should have it tested in a service center and see if they can locate the bad components. Then see if it worth replacing with the cost of parts and labor. Hope this helps you with your problem.

My screen is narrower out of nowhere


You should use your on screen menu and move the down arrow to aspect ratio then press the side arrow to the right to change the picture size to the one most suitable for your viewing pleasure. If this does not solve you problem then you may have problems with the video chip and should call Insignia customer service at 1-877-4289 for service. Hope this helps you with your problem.
