Poor Video/Sound Quality
The video produced by your Insignia NS-D160A14 is fuzzy or distorted.
Poor video or sound quality can be caused by an unseated connection between your DVD player and its connected television. Ensure that all connections, such as the composite or component cables, are fully seated.
Eject the DVD and look at the bottom side of the disc. If the disc shows signs of fingerprints or smudges, it may need a simple polishing. If it shows scratches, polish out the scratches.
