This sounds like a safety feature built into the television. It may be trying to protect itself from an unsafe electrical source. The more expensive the equipment, the more sophisticated the power supply that converts the power from your outlet into your television. There could have been a lightning strike that has disabled the tv. Or it could be a faulty outlet.
Before called for a technician, I recommend plugging the television into a different outlet. use a good quality extension cord if necessary. You may find that your outlet is not polarized correctly.

If you want to look into this issue further please try our premium service or use our online listings for a technician near your.

Thanks and good luck. :)

My Insignia TV model: ns-lcd26-09 starts flickering intermittently for a while after watching, quits after 20 minutes, then starts again.


Definitely sounds like a bad power supply. Especially if it's making any buzzing/hissing noises while it's flickering.
All Insignia products carry a two year manufactures warranty, which Best Buy will gladly service for you. If you're out of warranty, here is a link to a replacement part:

Technika 26'' lcd tv long time to warm up


the reason maybe a bad capacitor that is taking time to charge up to the nominal voltage. check for capacitors (electrolytic) in the power section (probably smps). it may appear bulgy than the others.

Insignia IS 26 Inch Lcd TV Problem no signal VGA Input


Most likely this is a resolution issue. Set your computer's output resolution to one that is compatible with the TV, usually 1366x768 for a 720p Insignia TV. More info can be found here.

My 26" Insignia LCD TV will not power on.. the little light on the bottom right corner will change from red to blue but the screen itself will not make any change.


The problem can be in the backlight inverter board or the power supply that supplys the power to the inverter board is bad. The indicator is on because the 5v standby power supply is still working at least.

Controls Don't Work


I have the same problem as the rest of everyone, too bad Insignia hasn't issued any help anyone that owns their TV over one year. I guess they don't make TV's to last more than 1 year anymore for your $$. I couldn't believe Best Buy continues to sell this disposable HD LCD flat screen when I saw them on the shelf still today.
Anyways, if someone find out that the cost is reasonble to fix this, please relay, thanks "burnt" consumer
