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 5 blinks on the LED means that the main logic D board is defective and will need to be replace to fix the TV. Check this site to find replacement parts to fix your plasma if you intend to DIY.
Let me know if you need further assistance.
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.
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.
