    I researched bad capacitors and found tha faulty ones tend to lean to one side even if you don't see any other physical disparities with it. However, when I opened up my Trutech 32" TV I found that most of the capacitors were leaning. Does this mean that all of them are bad? What other things can I do to find out if they are faulty?

Open the back of the TV,and look at the can shaped items called capacitors on the circuit boards.If any of them have the tops,or bottoms bulged out,they need to be replaced.This should get it working again.I hope this helps.If you have any questions,please let me know.Thank You very much!

Image goes to black on Sharp flatscreen.

An LCD unit? Sounds like the backlight is failing. When it goes black next time, use a strong light next to the screen and look for a faint image on the screen....

If it is the backlight, its a service shop issue.

Our TrueTech TV remote came with a preset factory code that allows us to override our code in case we forget it. Unfortunately, my billiant children have figured out the factory code and are now able to...

You can try these codes 2211 or 3308 if they do not work you will need to reset the unit. You will need to unplug it for 45 minutes that will reset the TV to factory settings. Then the pass codes I provided should work.

TRUTECH PLV16190 Capacitor replacement what type

I take it there is a bad capacitor on the inverter?The board that powers up the lights for the screen.Any bad ones on the power board as well?The two PLV16190 I fixed had bad capacitors on both boards.Usually the tops,and or bottoms bulge out when they go bad.When you do go to replace them,you can get ones with a higher value on both specs,but not lower.For example,if there is a 10V 1000UF,and a 16V 1000 UF,you can replace them both with 16V 1000UF,and it will work perfect.You can also use different heights as well,as long as there is enough room.The type you want are called Aluminum Electrolytic.I hope this helps.If you have any other questions,please let me know.Thank You very much!

Very likely have blown fuses and capacitors in both the power supply and the backlight inverter sections. Repair is best left to a technician unless you are tech savy and able to use a soldering iron.

The official website for this item is Try emailing them, or call them at 1-888-252-6252. Trutech is the store brand for Target stores, so many different companies make their products. This website isn't the official site for ALL Trutech products, just some of them, like this 19" LCD TV.
