The Geek Squad 2 year protection plan for my Insignia 48' LED TV that I purchased on February 2017 expired on February of this year. I purchased it online at Best Buy, but I don't remember ever getting a renewal email.

The TV started showing vertical lines and leaves after images when changing channels, although it does fade away at times. This must of happen after a power outage (SoCalEdison doing precautionary outages due to Santa Ana Winds and wildfires).

Am I out of luck? I know Insignia is the store brand, but the would the manufacturer warranty still have some coverage?

Its amazing that my Element 50' plasma TV is still going strong after purchasing from Walmart in 2009. It was probably also the last plasma TV ever built.

Honestly given the prices now I’d just get a new one. Costco was just offering a 50” 4K TV for $249.

I have an LG from 2010 that is still going strong as well which is the reason I haven't bought anything new, I just don't need it. It's a 55" and next one I get will be a 65" or bigger. Why not? they are cheap.

TV's are dirt cheap nowadays, do not get extended warranties on anything.

Walmart and Sam's club have very good prices and so does Best Buy for that matter.

You can check this site on a regular basis for deals.
