Hey napa15rt,

Many manufacturers may suggest not using video game consoles in conjunction with plasma or projection TV's, due to the potential risk of image retention. Unfortunately, image retention (or "image burn") can be caused by any number of sources including letter-box formatting, test patterns, scrolling banners and even the heads-up displays of many video games.

While some video game publishers may have taken this into consideration by including a "screen saver" of sorts for when the game is on pause, this cannot be guaranteed to apply to every game or console available.

Generally, you may avoid image retention by limiting the amount of time that any image is displayed on your TV screen. Simply turning the TV off when you're taking a break can often be one of the best ways to do so.

Additionally, please keep in mind that some Insignia TV models may offer a feature called Image Sticking Minimalization (or ISM) that is designed to help prevent image burn. For more information on your TV model and the ISM feature, you may wish to refer to your owner's manual or Insignia's website:

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron

Weather is it safe to leave TV in standby mode for weeks together?


I suggest that your TV is connected to a surge protector (In case you lose power).. The Standby Mode is safe at that point.

Can i safely play video games on my vizio


Yes, you can. Modern Plasma, and LCD, TV's don't suffer from the kind of burn-in you used to hear about. There are times when the pixels can become persistent (looks like burn-in) but these pixels will turn back to normal after a short time of normal television use.
So, yes, you can definitely use your awesome 50 inch TV to play video games, :).

Dvd player is playing in black and white on new tv. tv is a Insignia NS-P502Q-10


could it be the DVD player is european or simply set to output PAL or SECAM and not NTSC?

About the time plasma and LCD TVs started to replace classic CRTs pretty much all CRT TVs used to be able to handle both PAL/SECAM and NTSC.

Then, whether because of the difference in handling them due to switching to fixed display resolution or because of other considerations, less and less LCD and plasma TVs are handling all encodings.

So an older TV could have actually handled the encoding while a newer one lacks it, thus resulting in B/W image.

I purchased this hdtv new from Best Buy in February 2008. Last week a crackling sound began to develop and now the sound has gone completely, although the picture is fine.


Insignia T.V. 50" Model; NS-PDP50, Plasma T.V.

T.V. comes on, there is sound but no picture.
T.V. is les than 18 months old. We use the T.V. when we come to our Condo in Daytona Beach for vacation, so it hasn't been used very much.

When i hook up dvd player to a insignia plasma tv i get a picture & sound but it is in black&white.how do i get to be color


if you connect composit video from your DVD player to the "Y" jack of the tv then you will get only a black and white picture .. the composit video out of your DVD has to be connected to the composit video input of the TV .. or if you have component outputs on your DVD then you can hook those up to the "three" component inputs of the tv .. (you have to have all three hooked up plus 2 audio cables ..

Toshiba 50HP66 Plasma TV


Found that video 1 and video 2 switching does not work. The switching IC was HOT!. Then found a third video input works but no sound. Hooked -up sound output of DVD player to amplified loudspkr and it works, I hate to throw away a 2 year-old plasma TV when TV and cable still works.
Thanks for the offer anyway.

Wii Delay on new Insignia TV


We just upgraded from a 32" LG tube tv to a 46" Insignia LCD and had the same problem with our Wii and PS3. For us, we just switched the TV settings DCM (digital clear motion) function. We keep it on high for movies and TV shows and turn it completely off when playing Wii and PS3 games. Hope this helps!!
