Question about Insignia Digital-to-Analog Converter for Analog TVs

4 Answers

Remote Control The Insignia remote control works everything except turning the TV off and On. Was it designed to work everything except the off and on control. I really need to know at present I am using two remote controls to operate the TV and the converter box.

    I have the same problem. At first the tv on/off WAS working on the remote. Then I after a month, I inadvertently got into the menu again and it started to do a 'channel scan'. After that, the tv on/off button never worked. Best Buy told me to contact Insignia manufacturer for a replacement. However, what I did instead what to buy another Insignia converter (which I needed). I immediately took the remote from that new one and it does the same thing. This leads me to believe that it is NOT the remote but something that got set in the converter itself. I'm going to attempt to install the converter on another tv and see if I can get it to reset itself. ....basically I don't have an answer but have the same problem.

From GUEST: I found this solution in the manual and will perform this task again to see if I can get the tv will be re-recognized again. Give this a try, too.


Remote will not turn on or shut off the TV.
• You must program the converter box remote in order to control your TV power button.
• To program the remote control:

    1. Determine if the TV is a model that can be controlled by the remote control. See "Controllable TV brands" on page 17 in the manual.
    2. Turn on the TV.
    3. While you press and hold TV POWER on the remote control, press CH ^ or CH v one or more times until the TV turns off. Each time you press one of these buttons, the remote control sends a manufacturer code (between 1 and 45) to the TV.

    Tried solution that was in the manual. Cannot get the converter box to recognize another tv. The problem of "can't turn tv on/off" continues.

Apparently it's a conspiracy to get us to buy (1) HD tv's and (2) cable/dish service. We went thru the channels, and the TV went off, but we were still not able to turn it back on using the converter box remote

I Have an insignia tv and lost the remote control, I was able to find a similar insignia remote control to the one I lost. How can I program the new insignia control remote I acquired to my insignia tv.


Hello
All Insignia TV remotes are not alike. The frequency of infrared rays out from each remote control will be entirely different to each other according tho the model numbers of the TVs and remote controls. A typical model will have same model number of remotes, and the remote you have got is with the same model of your tVs it must work proper. Otherwise you have to buy a new one for your Insignia TV model. you can bought from the authorised service center for Insignia at your town. If you have no access to authoised service center nearby you, just buy one universal remote control, which has set up codes for Insignia. . Check its manual, that it have setup codes for Insignia. OK.

Hold tv button till all 4 lights light up and then press 660 # and everything (minus the menu option) should work. I also tried these insignia codes (which might work if this dont.) 659, 573, 570, 405, 245, 456.

Insignia NS-DXA1 - Digital to Analog converter box


I have had my converter box 5 days now. I hooked it up to the TV and set it up. No Problem. Except there are no instructions on how to set up the VCR/DVD player with it, which we use more than we do watching TV. Everything worked fine until on the second day we had it I read I could program the remote to turn the TV on and off. I followed the instructions and the TV went off. When I turned it back on, my remote went berserk. If I try to change a channel it will quickly flip through all the channels until I turn the converter box off. Same with the volume, it goes up and down, up and down until I shut off the box. The remote does not work unless you are about 1 foot away from the box. And the remote has never turned the TV on or off except that first time I programed it.
