Insignia 42 inch TV won't turn on

I bought a Insignia 42 inch 4 months ago and now it won't turn on. A red light is on all the time instead of the blue light that is usually on. When I hit the power button or channel buttons the tv tries to turn on and the light turns to green and flashes twice but then just goes back to the solid red light. Nothing happens on the screen during this time. I tried unplugging it and plugging it back in but it does the same thing. What it wierd is that it tries to turn itself on even if I hit the channel button on the remote or even on the tv. I wanted to try this forum in case it was just a setting before I attempt to return it or have them repair it. Any help is appreciated.

The power supply is in the protect mode. There are many things in the set that can cuase this. Most likely there is a short on one of the circuit boards, or the power supply itself has failed.

You will have to have the set serviced in order to get it going again.

Tv goes off by itself and then turns back on


If you bought it a month ago what help do you need? Take it back and have it either fixed or exchanged---is your issue no warranty or what?

I can make suggestions about fixing it but if under warranty what is the point?

I will help all I can---let me know and confirm the brand and a model number so I can help.

Volume in the tv is not working, and you turn the tv on or off it comes three to four minutes later. The tv was bought nine months ago, it's an LCD 42 inches MODEL #42MF439B/F7


If it is nine months old the set must still be under warranty, the problem you are describing is an intermittent audio problem and can be difficult to locate. I recommend getting in touch with the people you bought it from and get the satisfaction you deserve.

Insignia(samsung) 50" plasma Vertical red lines


I would take it back. I know from purchasing an Insignia LCD from them a while back, the TV just died after about 4 or 5 months. They ended up offering me another TV or with store credit. I took the store credit and chose another TV. I also did not have a warranty. I was told since it was Insignia (which is a Best Buy house brand) that replacing it was not a problem. Good luck.

Vizio GV42L LCD TV screen black when turn TV on first time


If you are using a set top box this might be caused by turnig the box on at the same tie as you turn the tv on or slightly after you turn the tv on.  If you are using compnent or HDMI inputs the set needs to see the signal as it is turned on to know what formt the signal is in.
