Heres what mine did:no picture no sound, when i hit the remote the indicator light went out....piece of crap is six months old, cant find any info on it, cant get a hold of anyone at Trutech.
So i took it apart, on the board that the power cord is attached to, i found six blown capacitors. There is also a big ass one in the middle of that board which looked ok but blew out the bottom.I replaced them, and im watching it as i type.
Its fairly easy but if your not comfortable soldering on a cheap circuit board, take it to someone.
I hope it helps, i think this repair will fix the other Trutech models with the same problems.

To change the channel spacing from 0.2 to 0.1; hold the FM button for approximately 2 seconds, then while still holding the FM button, press and hold the #5 button. The screen will flash with either US for 0.2 spacing or 01. for EU (Europe) spacing. Press any other button to exit. (I have done this with mine and it works).
