Insignia NS-14FCT TV

My Insignia television will not allow me to play dvds. It asks me for a parental control passcode, which I've never enabled and when I try to enter 1234 or 4321 it seems to disable but it is only temporary. I am not able to watch any dvds and would like some help disabling the passcode. Please help me I am extremely frustrated.

Hi Michelle414,

According to your product's manual available at http://www.insignia-products.com/skins/skin_1/Topics/Documents/NS-14FCT_UserManual.pdf, your television's default passcode is 0358. I would try this code to see if it works. Otherwise, I suggest calling Insignia® support at 1-877-467-4289.

Thank you,
Jason,

My Insignia TV has a blue screen with parental cotrol the problem is I don't have a Control to pres display how can I unlock it???? HELP:(


Hello
When an Insignia TV is locked, it keeps you from watching all of your channels by only displaying a black screen. Insignia TVs are locked from a single button command on the remote control, so it is easy for you to lock the TV by accident. Since Insignia TVs can be locked so easily, it's important to know how to undo this command and unlock the TV yourself. So, unlock your Insignia TV with the push of a button and once again enjoy watching your favorite programs.
· Find the lock button on the Insignia remote control. The lock button is located on the third column from the left on the second row from the top of the remote.

·Stand within operating range of the Insignia TV, then aim the remote at the TV's receiver and press the "Lock" button on the remote control.
· Aim the remote at the TV and press the channel buttons to make sure the TV is unlocked. When the TV is locked, it shows a black screen and does not allow you to view anything else. If the screen remains black, press the "Lock" button again. If this doesn't work, change the batteries in the remote and start over at step
OK

There is a black (blackend out) square in the middle of the tv screen. the channel shows around the black square. when i turn the tv off and back on it is gone for a while.


Check the closed captioning. there are several modes for the CC features and some of them will do exactly what you describe. check the menu for CC and turn it off. there may be a CC button on your remote as well. it will work as a toggle to turn the CC on and off and in some cases will trun on and then go through the various CC modes then it will turn off. the display will show CC1 then CC2 etc until you get to CC off.
