I believe "Insignia" is a house brand for Best Buy, so it might be worth giving BB a call to see if they can help.

"Display" is sometimes called "Info"

Mike, she still has the original remote, she just didn't know how to unlock the set, until someone posted the solution below.

I doubt you'll get a response from a member who's last post was over three year ago.

Personally I would think either (TV or remote) would do, but if in doubt check out Support - presupposing of course it's an Insignia TV.

Locked Insignia NS-20 LCD


1. Locate second power switch on back hidden below curve, left side if facing front of TV.
2. Turn TV on using this power switch while holding in MENU button on right side of TV.
3. This is reset the Lock feature!!

Eureka! Finally ...

Hiteker TL1931W TV: I think turn on hold display button remote for 3?? seconds, this unlocked mine. There may be a sequence Hold display down, turn on TV hold for 3-sec, while holding turn off TV hold display.
