Sorry its not an easy fix at all. im sorry wat you have to hear, but do you have kids? if so, they probably bumped into or hit the screen. that would result in permantly damaging the screen

No picture onTV screen only audio after lightning


May be your picture tube got damaged in that lightning. This may be an effect of the magnetization of the picture tube due to a huge electric current passing near it. Try demagnetizing the tube and if it doesn't work get it replaced. Try having a properly working tube of an older television as modern picture tubes lack quality.

When you first turn it on, the picture is scrambled. takes fifteen to twenty minutes to warm up and get a good picture. Once and awhile after the picture warms up it will blink like the picture is going...


It seems that your unit has some sort of Thermal fault, either in the main circuitry or the Power Supply Unit, PSU. In all probability it WILL get worse and fail completely.
You need to take the unit to a reputable service centre/man and ask for a firm "Quote" for the work to be done.

Killed by lightning, have power, no picture...


The warranty does not cover lightning, check if your insurance covers it.
A lightning strike on such panel ( HDMI ) is very difficult to repair and if not impossible.The HDMI connector is hooked to the ground of the TV set so everything could be damaged.
My advice is not to repair.

Lightning strike and tv picture messed up


This unit needs to be sent or taken in to a service center for complete testing and service. The lightning strike has caused a component failure, in the main board of the television. This is the board that controls all the functions of the television. The customer service telephone number for Insignia is 1-877-467-4289. You can also go to the website www.insignia-products.com. Go to the customer support section and ask them for help getting you television evaluated and serviced. I hope this information helps you solve your problem.

Lightning strike


I have the same tv, but the problem I have is the picture is shifted to the right and can not correct it. At 1700, its probably not worth fixing because to expensive to repair, they dont make it anymore

Scrambling for first 15 mins


That is the exact problem I am currently having with my toshiba 50 in. I did some reading and it sounds like there is a temperature drift across one of the capacitors on the board and it takes longer and longer to warm up. Havent fixed it yet...
