I had the same problem, but i had a Philips PM435S Univeral remote, I just started guessing different combinations, and found that pushing the code search button and then pressing 0 unlocked the tv

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

Child Lock on Insignia TV


I CAN HELP! After my having my Insignia NS-20LCD picture locked for over a year because no one could give me a way to unlock it, a co-worker found the secret!!

When facing the back of the TV, there is another on/off switch on the back on the right side just under the curve (very difficult to see). I didn't even know it was there.

Once you locate, turn the set on using that switch while you hold in the "menu" button on the right side (when facing the front) of the TV. This will reset the television and unlock the screen!

Accidentally locked out of my TV


Unfortunately with this model of Insignia you MUST have the remote that comes with that model number in order to unlock it. Other Insignia remotes won't work. So I have ordered another remote from an online company. Hopefully that will work. I'll probably have to call Insignia to have them walk me through it once the remote arrives.
