Hi, thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com. My name is***** will do my best to provide the right answer to your TV remote question.

Try taking the battery or batteries out of the remote, with the TV turned OFF meanwhile, and leave both that way for 20+ minutes or longer.

Then try the batteries back in the remote, or fresh batteries, and the TV turned On afresh.

If that doesn't work, tell me, in Reply, the model of your Insignia TV (or the model of your remote, if it is not a "Universal" remote, and I will instruct you further.
