Insignia tv won't power on...the red light is on,

The way it is behaving and the red light usually indicate that there is a problem in the power section of the tv.

This isn't really a home repair. So what you need to do is contact the sore you purchased from and check for warranty and where to get it repaired. You can also check local tv repair shops if there are any near you or go through Insignia customer support and find out where the repair depot is. If you have no warranty coverage you only want to get repair estimates. Then you want to check out the prices for a new replacement tv.

Depending on the parts and labour rates it sometimes is much cheaper just to go out and buy a new tv. If you have a good tv shop tech there it can be fairly cheap. Bad ones can be just as expensive as the rest. Anyway once you know the costs you can then decide to repair or replace. Aside from the quality of the technician the reason for the difference in the cost will be if the power board is separate or part of the main board or if the tech can just replace a component or has to replace the entire board. As long as you check a few places you will know whats the best way to go dollar wise.

Unplug it for about an hour to let it reset itself first, if it still does the smae thing then it may have gone into protection shutdown mode due to short circuits in the power supply or in the backlight inverter board, or main board problem, we need to do some visual inspection in the power supply first, then the inverter board.

Where can I get abetter remote for my T.V? I hate

Hi

Do you have the original remote. If not, you could buy it from :-

http://cgi.ebay.com/INSIGNIA-LCD-TV-DVD-COMBO-REMOTE-HTR-274C-NS-CL19C-CL15-/290464461976?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item43a107f498

If you are looking for another options - it could ONLY be universal remote. You could either go to wallmart and buy it. Make sure that the universal remote should have your brand under the listing. Once you would get the remote, program it with your TV and it is all set.

One of the sites would be :-

http://www.remotecentral.com/

You could consider ebay as well.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Unit runs for about 10 minutes and then shuts off

This is a classic switchmode power supply, shutting down to avoid a fire, explosion, or both. This set had developed a problem, that is so severe that the set must be shut down, This set should be removed from the Power, and in my professional recommendation, you should get a "Quote" for repair, from, an, Approved Service Center, this point is very important for a good result, Always contact, their local, "Head Office" Now, when you get the information you want, then you can decide as to repair of replacement. The reason we want an approved agent, is that way, all the engineers are trained on their own brand sets, they have seen almost all faults, and will get the job done quicker, and for less cost, and usually have parts on hand, also sometimes, there has been a service bulletin in issued and the repair may be subsided or even free.

Service manual at below link.
http://www.s100-manuals.com/manualdetails.asp?id=242016
Hi, well I applaud you for wanting to have a go and try to repair you set. But PLEASE, start in the right place, otherwise you will simply waste your time and money, You see, you MUST start, in the right place, The power supply, FIRST, as, if, that isn't right, nothing else can be. But you simply cannot do anything without a Service Manual. In this it has everything one needs to repair the set. OK if it is shutting down, after that amount of time, of working and then faulting, then it is most definitely a "Thermal" problem, the way we "Find" problems such as this is "Freeze Spray" you use this on each component that is suspected of being the "Culprit" and you will soon,find that errant component. Now, also not every fault is a Capacitor, I see many, many people that think, that Capacitors are always the "Culprit" and replace them, because someone else had done so and it worked, well that maybe sometimes true, but most Symptoms, can, and do have many, many different "Causes" & also, now while that may be true in a few cases, a faulty Electrolytic Cap, or even, ordinary, Cap goes faulty, this is only a SYMPTOM, something has damaged those caps causing them to "Fail". One MUST always find the root "Cause", otherwise if you just treat, the SYMPTOM, the "Cause" will just make the "Symptom" come back, in short order, as the prime cause still, hasn't been fixed., Now Capacitors hate AC ripple, or Over Voltage. Thats it. Oh.. and Heat, if these Capacitors, are too close to a Heat Source, then thats a prime cause of failure. Resistors, hardly ever go faulty,and if they do, it is generally obvious. However it doesn't hurt to check values with our Multimeter. Remember though resistors are made, with up to 20% tolerance from stated value, as such, are not too critical, unless in Timing circuits etc. Always check, the Values, of resistors, as with any other component, with the power OFF. Now Diodes especially "Zener Diode", are another thing to check, those and ordinary "Signal Diode" should always be suspect. next we have Transistors and IC's. The Transistors MUST ALL be checked to see if they have a good, "Junction" this is done, with our meter set to "Diode Test" and usually are about 0.6 to 0.7. With IC's you must check, voltage levels, or Logic Levels, going in and out, have a look at the circuit diagram, and it will tell you what they should be. It is a good idea to always measure the Power Supply voltages, see if a "Rail" is Low, that will be because some component has gone somewhat or all short circuit, to Earth, now, if the "Rail" is Higher, suspect an "Open Circuit" component, like a Diode, or Transistor. The voltages expressed in the manual are spot on, ANY variation MUST be investigated. I have been doing all this for over 30 years now, and I do indeed wish, we could have a set of "Symptoms" and be ables to say.. "Oh that;s the so-in-so and replace this" however unfortunately this although does happen, most "Symptoms" can have literally tens, of "Causes" all often "Interlinked" One simply has to do a methodical troubleshooting procedure, and always think, "are my Voltages Correct" as this is how, you Fix the problem, by making them so. Keep up the good work.

TV keeps cutting off

A very common problem for this set has been bad electrolytic capacitors on the power supply. There are 2 in this model that are 1000uf at 35 volts that will commonly cause this. When they go bad they will normally be domed or mushroomed on top rather than be flat, so they should be easy to locate. If you can solder, they would be easy to change yourself. You can get the caps just about anywhere online for only a few dollars. A repair shop would probably charge around $100 to make this repair if it is indeed bad capacitors.

Turn on connection

You need to inspect the power supply module first, look for bad caps with leaking/bulging tops, some can have high ESR (you need cap meter with ESR reading function). Check to see if you do have the 12 (16)vdc (for sound), and 24vdc (for backlight inverter board).

It may not be on the right channel. If you hooked in up by RCA cables (the red, yellow, & white colors) then you will have to change the TV to the correct input. Look next to where you plugged the cables in and it should say input? where the "?" is replaced with a number. Either use a button on the TV or your remote that says "TV/Video" or "input" to change to that input. If it is the old single black cord (which I doubt) then it will be either channel 3 or 4.

Good luck
