TV Screen Not Working

My Trutech Tv stopping working yesterday at a few hours of use. The tv was on when I heard a strange sound and looked up from the news paper and saw the TV was off. I have unpluged it and waited and still nothing. I work for Target and know that the Trutech brand should last longer than this one has. Any solutions to my problem.

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.

TCL CRT TV slowly turns into black screen and than only sound comes but no image, just a black screen. After some hours than again the TV works fine but after sometime again the problem repeats!

CRT base card circuit fault. Contact any service technician to get it rectified. It will be somewhat difficult to a normal user to repair this fault. Check and replace damaged component/s at its horizontal scan output section circuit. Check the LOT (Line Output Transformer) too for damage. Replace the horizontal scan output transistor. Check the input voltage to LOT. If the voltage is absent check the feeder resistor; if any. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts. Type in this key phrase " my service table today " in the search box at the top right of the the home page, to get gathered some pages which has the details of practical experiences of the author of that site.

Remote control not working

If the new remote is not working either, it sounds as if the problem relates to the sensor on the TV combo.

If you bought it new last Xmas you should have some warranty left. I would get it looked at asap before the warranty expires.

TruTech PLV1615T has Sound but No Picture

Open the back of the TV,and look at the can shaped items on the board that the power cord is hooked to.If any of them have the tops,or bottoms bulged out,they need to be replaced.This should get it working again.So far I have fixed four of the same make,and model TV as this,and they all had either one,or two bad capacitors.I hope this helps.If you have any other questions,please let me know.Thank You very much!
