Question about TruTech PVS31170S1W 17 in. LCD Television

1 Answer

Connecting antenna -- No Signal

I have a TruTech 19", PLV311995 (or s) 1, flatscreen TV/DVD. I can't find the manual (of course). I have a new RCA antenna, have hooked it to the TV in correct port, plugged both in, and can't get a signal. I'm sure there is one setting I don't know, help please.

PS: I know the TV works because it was hooked to Direct TV until a larger set replaced it.

    Before step 1 in the quick installation the instructions say Make sure the RF aerial has been connected. Was I supposed to buy a RF aerial? I want to watch tv withoout cable. What should I do? I know nothing.

Hi Shelly_Eddie,

Here are a couple of things to try:

Is the TV set to antenna or cable? Use the menu settings

Be sure a wire end is not bent outside of connection, i.e. coaxial cable wires sometimes bend or hide back into the sleeve.

Reset the TV and do a channel scan, unplug and see what happens.

Let me know how you make out. Good luck.

    I have the same TV, it is a crappy brand. I could not get barley anything over an antenna. I hooked it up to an antenna that another tv got a great picture and all the channels and got nothing on th trutech. It works fine with cable and satalite though.
    But I would not recommend anyone buy the brand.

Can't Get Antenna to Work


Try changing the input device to something you are sure, works such as a DVD player. If it works, check whether the transmission is compatible with the system in your TV. Go to menu and select the correct system such as PAL/Secam etc.

Hook up to digital TV antenna indoor passive


Please check if the antennae is connected with right cable and the dipole is good. If so search the channels avaiilable and if there is no signal then it is possible that the TUNER is faulty. check using another TV with the same antennae or check the RF input using a VCR or TUNER.

The base on my 19in Trutech broke. Can it be replaced? And if so, how do I order one?


Try this link:

TruTech TV Manual.pdf

It's a PDF manual from the actual TruTech website. TruTech is an exclusive TARGET store brand.

The link above is a manual for the PVS2119 19" LCD TV with DVD Player. You'll need the Adobe Acrobat Reader (it's free on adobe.com).

But this manual even helped me install my TV and I have the
TruTech PVS31170S1W 17".

These 2 TV models are very much the same. I hoped this helped in some way.

Hi! I posted a few days ago about my elderly neighbors TV being disconnected from Dish and now she gets no signal on all channels. She has a TruTech Model (from back of TV) 008-09-0119. I disconnected the...


What kind of antenna is she using? If she is using an Over The Air antenna that was supplied by Dish it would be best to buy another type of antenna.
Please post back with her antenna type and the zip code you live in so I can help you further.
