Intermittently shuts off

I have a Trutech PV1615T LCD 15" SD/HDTV that shuts off for no apparent reason. Does anyone have a repair manual so I can replace the on/off switch?

Also, trying to find the code for Dish Network to use their remote.

    Thanks, I have had several people in the industry say its a common failure with the set. They believe the intermittent shutting off is likely the switch shorting out. Its a varied minute its on, the next its off, three hours its on, the next minute off. Its random and never consistent. The only way to get it to turn back on it to unplug it then plug it back in and turn it on.

I know of no manual available for Trutech except maybe a flow chart. If you believe the tac switch is bad, all you have to do is un-solder it and use the remote to turn it on and see if it quits. You will probably have to locate a tv shop in your area that may have a scrap LCD set that he can match and take the tac switch out of. I have not encountered a bad tac switch by normal failure yet, in an LCD set, so I'm wondering how you determined the switch is bad? Please let me know?

TRutech 15" LCD does not pick up all channels

Check your TV settings and make sure your tuning is set for cable (may say "cable" or "CATV"). Right now you'll probably find it set for "air". If the TV is set to tune off-the-air, cable channels 2 through 13 work normally, but above that they aren't detected. Once you set the tuning mode to cable, rescan channels and you should have them all.
