NS-42L550A11 video game lag

Hello all,

 

Just purchased the NS-42L550A11 42" HDTV a couple days ago, and am super happy with it.  I've noticed that when I go to hook up some of my older video game systems (like the old NES and Super NES), there's about a half-second to second lag.  I see that this problem has been addressed for some of the other models of Insignia TVs, but there's nothing out there for this one.  I tried out some of the solutions for the other models to see if they would apply to mine, but no such luck so far.  I could hook these up to an older TV just to play them there, but that'd be kinda lame, yknow?

 

Could anyone help me along here?  Thanks!

Hello JaySilverman,

Welcome to Community@Insignia™!

This lag is, most provably, caused by the old gaming system's resolution and the image improvement done by the TV to enhance it. Here are a couple of things you can try:

 

1- Connect the game straight to the TV (no receiver or switch in between)

2- NES and SNES are 480p so try using the regular AV connection

3- On the TV turn Game Mode ON

4- Select as a Picture Mode Standard

5- Turn OFF Insignia Motion 120 Hz (in Picture/Advanced Video)

6- Turn OFF Noise Reduction (in Picture/Advanced Video)

 

 

If it was useful, and you liked it, Kudo it!

Thank you,
