I just looked at Best Buy's website and all the Insignia TV's I saw had 1 year warranties. You should be able to take it back if it's only 6 months old.

so this morning i tried to turn my tv on and nothing happened. changed the batteries and nothing. unplugged it and plugged it back in and it came on but the setup screen was on and flashing really fast. turned it back off and back on. all was well.
went to work and the tv has been off all day.
just tried to turn it on and nothing. unplugged it and plugged it back in and nothing. it keeps making a clicking sound like it is trying to turn on. nothing happens though. not with the remote and not on the actual tv.
my fault for buying a cheap one? maybe
it is/was a 65" insignia. i thought it was a 70 but it was a 65. not that it matters.
i bought this tv new from best buy in february. it was like 700 bucks and after 6 months its done...
this is not the first time with new electronics this has happened.
last year i bought a smaller tv. a 42" sharp i think from wal mart. it never worked right out of the box. had to take it back.
i also bought a blu ray last year. an lg. after about 2 months it wouldnt connect to the internet.
yeah i suppose i could buy top of the line and i could get the extended warranty. i usually dont but i will probably start.
it just seems like the quality of all this electronic # these days sucks.
i remember the tv's we had in the house when i was a kid lasting for years. decades.
my mother has a tube style tv in her basement that we bought when i was in junior high. 20 years and that damn thing still works.
its like it is all low quality disposable # these days. there are not even tv repair shops around....
just a bummer
so now i am back to using the 42" sharp which i guess is better than nothing but it looks goofy now that i am used to the big daddy.
what are your thoughts on electronics these days?
i have an extra check in october so i am definitely going to buy another new tv. what brand do you all recommend?
on a side note. have any of you had a problem like this? you think it is something i could fix cheap?
we had no power outage and nothing happened to the tv. i was watching last night but this morning it just wouldnt turn on.
like i said it makes that clicking sound that it makes when you actually do turn it on. it makes the sound and then about 3 seconds later it does it again and keeps doing it.
really sucks. electronics are cheap as far as cost goes these days but quality is cheap too
