I was having the same problem my tv would come on then shut off, till last night it went off for good and i smelt a burning smell. I do heating and a/c so im pretty good with electronics, and took the tv apart to see a small burn mark on the circuit board. So now i just have to figure out where to get this board from, so i think if others are having this problem its got to be the board about to go up and i suggest replacing it.

Unfortunately I know mine's already out of manufacturer's warranty so I know they're going to just tell me to upgrade or let me know that I should've purchased additional warranty when I bought it! I know it sucks & yes a LOT of people seem to be having issues with this monitor but that's the cost of buying the cheap stuff! We get what we pay for in the end...

Fix lcd tv


You need to dertermine if the power board failing charred the connectors, or if a differeb=nt component failed which charred the connectors and took out the power board. This will require component level testing. i suggest taking it in to the repair shop.
However, i would price shop a comparable replacement TV before fixing a 4 year old Insignia. it may be more cost effective to just replace it.

Last year I went to my company's christmas party and in a random drawing I won a 32 inch Insignia lcd tv. I've only had it for a month and for some reason it when i'm playing a video game or watching tv it...


1. You will need to check the units instruction manual.
This sounds like the LCD TV is in the "timer" mode that is the tv is set for 120, 90, 30 minutes and then turns itself off.
2. It also maybe a circuit built into the TV to protect the electronic components and will shut down the unit when it senses a heat or voltage change ( this can be a manufacturing defect) call the manufacturer and see if this is a recall. Some time the manufacturer will replace the unit even if it is a gift from the company you work for.
The unit has already been purchased and has full warranty status.
Hope this helps.

I have a insigni flat screen tv and don't have a picture only a dot in the middle of the screen .. do have sound though


I know of a recent recall on several Insignia models.
Check with Best Buy to see if yours is one of them.
The power supply is known to catch fire. This TV likely has a bad power supply.

Insignia tv shock power on/off on its own


I have experienced the same issues, I called Insignia about this particular problem, I explained that this TV shocked me and now won't work, there explanation is that because I was out of warranty there is not much they can do, never mind that they had a particular model that a recall with the same issues as there 26 inch model, when the TV shocks u, it's usually your main board gone bad,
All I can do now is complain on these boards and inform other consumers of how bad of a product this is and to stay away from this brand due to the fact have poor designs on these models.
I will continue to ***** and complain, on Facebook and other post until maybe someone listens and decides not to buy a piece of **bleep** like this, what a joke, will start a class action law suit, remember the more u complain, they will eventually have to listen to you just like they did with their 26 inch models they will do it for other models so hold on to your sets this one's due for a recall.
They also said that they can't find any threads on their insignia boards, just type shocked and u will find threads, and if u want to do a Google search type insignia and your model number and see how many threads u will find about their faulty boards, I'll be back to add these post with links of how much of a piece of **bleep** this TV really is..
