Question about Insignia 19 in. Widescreen Flat-Panel LCD HDTV

Menu Appears "on it's own"

We've had this tv for about a week.IWe have it wall mounted in a bedroom on the second floor of our house. This morning, with no one touching the remote, the menu for the input pops up on screen. It then started scrolling through the options and finally started selecting them (DVD, AV, etc). I switched the input back to TV and it did it again. This went on for about 15 minutes and then resolved itself. Is the TV on some sort of frequency that someone outside could be triggering? Another solution? Or should we be calling Ghost Hunters? hahaha. Seriously, though- what gives?

    And now, the volume is turning itself up to full volume. When I try turning it down, it immediately goes back up full volume whether I use the remote or the buttons on the televsion.

    Very Helpful, thank you!!!!



    We ended up taking the set back and getting a different model since this was our second set of issues with the same brand.



    We did try the remote soultion and the curtains were pulled (although I did notice that we have a neighbor who has a direct sight line from their family room up to our bedroom so that was possible if the window was open.)



    Again, thank you for your response. I am pretty sure something in the set was defective.

I have seen five types of causes for this type of fault. The fifth one is extremely unusual.

  • The uPC, and or the IR reciever and remote data amp circuits in the set went defective and started addressing functions from noise generation.
  • The control panel circuit board in the set has gone defective, and randomly addresses functions. (Sometimes people spill liquid inside while cleaning the set and damage this circuit board).
  • In the room, there are some compact fluorescent, or fluorescent lighting, and the frequencies from the lights are causing the IR addressing to malfunction.
  • The remote control itself is defective and sending commands. (Remove the batteries to test).
  • You have an unscrupulous neighbor that enjoys to annoy you, they can see your TV set in the window, and he or she is messing with it using a compatible remote! Very very rare to have this one! (Keep your curtains pulled to see if this fixes this type of fault).

Can you give me some advice on, how to mount a 46in tv above my non working fireplace mantle?


You would have to use a mounting bracket specifically designed for the type of installation you describe and it certainly would have to be fastened into the studs behind the sheetrock. A TV of that size will be heavy to lift and install in the bracket

Disconnect everything from the TV so no more wires are attached to it like cable or DVD or gaming console. Unplug the TV from the wall for over 2 minutes. Then plug only the TV back into the wall with nothing plugged into it, if the TV does not stay on then you have a defective TV. You might try moving the TV to a different part of the house to a plug on a different circuit/breaker like a bedroom to verify this.

Took it off the wall of the camper we just bought. Would like to use it in my guest bedroom, but the stand is gone. Can you help locate one for me?


If you search on Ebay for your TV's exact model number, sometimes you can find a replacement stand for it there.

Here is a link to one example currently available for an Emerson TV:

http://cgi.ebay.com/Emerson-LC320EM8A-32-Inch-LCD-Flat-Panel-TV-BASE-STAND-/110728286130?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item19c7eb8fb2


Otherwise you can just buy a generic wall mount floor stand for around $100 which bolts to the TV like a wall mount, but actually sits on the floor instead of being bolted to the wall.

Here are some links to a few different models currently available on Ebay which include pictures so you can see what I mean:


http://cgi.ebay.com/PLASMA-LCD-FLAT-PANEL-MOUNT-TV-STAND-WALL-SHELF-STAND-/390330001764?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item5ae17b2964

I hope that was helpful to you, good luck and take care.

Sounds like the IWE ( Integrated Wheel End ).

One of the lines is the vent line, routed into the engine compartment and is not connected to anything, the other runs to the IWE solenoid.

This is a block diagram of the IWE vacuum system

From your problem, I am not sure if the line is broken or the vacuum & vent mount on the IWE itself.

Window or wall mount


The differance between a window and wall mounted A/C is the mounting system.
Window units are usually smaller BTU systems they set in the window, so you do not have to cut a hole in the wall to install it.
For a bedroom say 10 x 10 you can use @ 5000 btu it plugs into a standard 120 volt electric outlet. If the room is bigger then go bigger say @ 6000 btu or so. Take your room dementions with you when shopping for a unit. sometimes they have sizing on the side of the unit box.
Wall units are usually larger units. Like whole house 18,000 btu
they slide in and out of the case and use a 240 volt seperate circuit.
Best place to shop for A/C's are Home Depot, Lowes, Sams Club, B.J.'s, and Cosco they buy in large volumeusually give a Good deal I've seen 5000 btu units as low as $89.00
Just don't drop the unit out the window when installing it
From the second floor it will void your warranty. LOL
Good Luck Phil
