    I have the same problem as above but in a 32" tv. I took apart the tv and took a look, but nothing looks blown out. I am a complete novice as to the parts i am looking at but am willing to try to fix it myself. I am assuming that the "big ass one" Greasmonk wrote about is the capacitor Lonnies tech is talking about. If some one could explain, breifly, what I should be looking for and how I know if a particular capacitor needs to be replaced. Thaks in advance.

Ok so here is my update. I spoke with people at Target's Corp. customer services. I had to jump thru some hoops, if you want my opinion, I think there are legal things going on between Target and Venture Electronics, formerly known as Alco, the suppliers of Trutech. I was giving two numbers to try from a woman at Target, who was very nice and helpful, but unwilling to elaborate to much. When both numbers failed she sent a Venture tech an email on my behalf. Two days later I was contacted by a rep who all of my info. The long and short of it is that I am right now two weeks later watching my formerly broken tv. Venture paid for my shipping both ways and fixed the tv. The tech did admit that the capacitors are a problem but in some cases there have been other issues as well. The tech I worked with might get pissed at this but who cares. The tech number is (905) 477-7878 his name is David, and his ext. 5095. He is very helpful but you have to stay on top of him, I had to call every other day for a week to get the shipping tag so I send them my tv. Good luck to all hope everyone is able to have the success I have.

Replace c14 capacitor in power supply. It's the big one it's 450v 150uf capacitor.

My $250. TruTech TV died after 15 months. Do an on-line search and you'll find lots of Trutech losers (suckers). I went all the way to the top of Targets Customer Service trying to get some recourse but they don't give a damm. Not their problem. Yet. Sorry this happened to you. Boston

Hi i have a jvc 27 inch tv, an older model probably a 2002 model.last night as we were watching the onscreen set up menu came on and kept going thru the whole set up over and over and nothing would stop...


The microswitchs are probably leaky. Ask your local TV shop what they would charge to change the switchs in the front. On a 27 JVC with a good picture I would charge $85.+ Tax. You have to decide what it's worth for you. I would say it's worth $85.+Tax for me. I that helps let me know.

Heres what mine did:no picture no sound, when i hit the remote theindicator light went out....six months old, cant findany info on it, cant get a hold of anyone at Trutech.
Soi took it apart, on the board that the power cord is attached to, ifound six blown capacitors. There is also a big ass one in the middleof 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.
