    Same problem here. Looks like its a programming issue.

    I have the same problem - would be nice if they would fix it. Obviously it is the software.

You can not set the time on this model. Page 17 in the user guide states Clock=Display the clock time. (not set the clock time, it is even grayed out in the manual)

The only time you will see the time in the setup screen is when you are on a channel that broadcasts the time and enter the setup menu.

I have Comcast in San Francisco, most standard cable stations do not broadcast the time (Press Display on your remote). Channel 2.0 is Fox, channel 2.1 is KTVUHD which is a Fox affiliate does broadcast the time.

I spoke with tech support who was no help and even scheduled a person to come look at the tv thru bestbuy. i was called back a few days later and told it would be more economically advantageous to exchange it.. i took it back and pulled one off the shelf and had bestbuy tech set the clock. He was unable to do it nor could he on the display model. Apparently insignia has some type of programming issue with this set.
i was able to get the same set w/o the dvd player for the sale price i paid for my combo model, since i had picked it up on sale for 30 dollars less than the model without the built in dvd player. i then just bought a 30 dollar dvd player to hook up to new set. The new set has a totally different style menu interface and the clock and sleep timer work as advertised.
i know this isnt a solution as it were but this is the only way i know of to fix the problem..

Is there a repair manual for insignia NS-LT-DVD-26?

Service manuals are hard to find now a days, even service parts. Check the link provided to find the main board for your LCD.
Finding the tuner alone might be hard or if you do, it might cost you the same as replacing the entire main board.

DVD player just read the beginning of the disk, then stops

Open the DVD player. Clean the pick up lens with ethyl alcohol/nail paint remover by using cotton swab. Tip: Use your DVD player at least once in week.

I have Insignia Blu-ray DVD player and a membership with Netflix. My DVD player references Netflix download coming soon in order to stream movies straight to the DVD player. Is that download available?

This model, NS-BRDVD, is not Netflix capable. Models NS-BRDVD3, NS-WBRDVD, and NS-BRHTIB are, however. A firmware update may be required when first setting up your player for best functionality.

My insignia NS-L26Q-10A 26" LCD television is showing that it is 420i on the screen and I understand that it is supposed to be 720p. How do I change this?

This may have to do with the settings on your DVD player or cable/satellite box. Change the settings on those devices to output the desired resolution (720p) and adjust your TV settings appropriately. More details about the TV settings can be found in the owner's manual.

Check your warrenty to see if the tv is still covered. If not, I would just buy another dvd player and attach it to the tv, it would be cheaper then repearing the tv.

Insignia NS-8PDVD blank screen...

There is a switch on the side of the DVD player that reads "in / out".  Switch it to out and you should get the blue screen back.  It's a strange set up but this is how it works.
