Replacing 32" 12 volt Insignia

Our 32" 12-volt Insignia TV has failed and replacement options seem few for a 12 volt. Any recommendations?
Thanks for any advice!Click image for larger version

Maybe itís just me.....

But if youíre interested in a television that works on 12 volts.....seems to me you're more interested in a more primitive style of camping.

Getting away from it all and television in the same sentence just doesnít seem right to me.

Good point. We have two televisions in our FR 2400R MBS. The one in the living room is 12 volt which is nice to catch up with the news or weather while traveling or boondocking and not connected at a site.
Thanks you.

We have two 32" 12 volt Jensen TVs and have had no problems with them for the past 5 years.

Glad to hear that. That's the kind of reliability I'm looking for. Thank you.

If you have a decent battery bank, might consider just getting a regular 110v tv and a 1000w inverter ($110) to run it.

Depending on the size 12V tv your looking at, you can likely buy both the same size 110v and the inverter for the same price, then have the inverter that can run something else if the need arises.

That's what we did when our 12v TV failed, have not used the inverter yet, but nice to know we can if needed. Also, we can use the inverter for other low current things as well if we are ever boondocking or stuck in the Walmart parking lot.

300 watt pure sine wave inverters are getting pretty cheap (<$50) and should run a 32 inch modern tv no problem -
https://www.amazon.com/BELTTT-300W-P...ct_top?ie=UTF8

Smaller inverters have (in general) less idle current than larger ones - one comment on the Amazon site says this one draws ~0.4 amps unloaded.

Some of the smaller TV's use a power adapter, some with 12 volt output then you can just buy or make an adapter.

You will need to check in stores as this type of information is not generally listed.

Replacing 32&quot; 12 volt Insignia

I bought a used 32Ē 12 volt Insignia off of eBay for $40 to replace the Jensen that failed in my 2015 2300.
Some of the newer TVs use a 120v ac to 19.5 dc adapter. You can then buy a 12volt DC to 18.5 DC adapter. Iíll most likely go this route next time.

Thumbs up 12 volt all the way

My 32Ē Jensen works very well and they are made heavy duty to withstand travel vibrations. Any time you convert electricity there is power loss. One inverter mentioned had a .4 Volt parasitic draw. When I only have 200 amps on board in reserve parasitic draw is the last thing I want. I have solar panels and everything on my rig is 12 volt. I only run the generator when the wife uses the hair dryer or coffee maker. MH five years old and Onan has <60 hrs on it, most from roof A/C use.

So I take it you have no televisions in your monster motorhome?

have had 2 of my 12V Jensens fail. a 32 inch and the 26 inch. I have looked into the Jensen 32 inch 12v now available and looked at them. The mounting on the back is completely different than the original ones and they are not as strong in the mounting area, Im afraid that if i made and adapter to make them fit ,it would not hold up and break the back out of the TV. Any one run into this type of problem ??

I am going to step out on a limb and ask, did you check the little fuse in the 12volt plug? Unscrew the silver button from the end. Remember how the spring, washer, cap, fuse all go back.
If the power plug melted than, you can get a replacement from ASA via Amazon. I have had that happen. My TV is 6 years old and doing well.

Yes I did. Actually took it to a repair shop and he said it could not be fixed. He ordere parts but to no avail.
Said the problem was the power iinvertor and it could not be repaired.

Actually, 0.4 amperes parasitic (not volts). Would parasitically consume ~4 amp-hours of battery capacity if left on 10 hours a day without load. Still, always better to turn an inverter off when not in use...

Jensen TV

The invertor is built into the tv.
The TV is actually a 120v powered and the internal invertor powers from the 12v.

I'll plan to do that.
Thanks!
