Question about TruTech PLV16320 Television
Hi. My son bought this tv for us and within 6 months it died on us. Just turned off with a black screen, no audio, nothing. We have unpluged it and tried that, but nothing has worked. Target won't help us because my son didn't save the receipt and you can't get anyone to help from TruTech.
I certainly hope you experts can help with this problem.

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.

I have the same problem. From things I have read on hear it seems to be a capacitor problem. TruTech is made be Alco Industeries. I have tried calling the number in the warrenty with no luck. I called Target last night (not the local store) and was told that number was incorrect and was provided a different number which also failed to work. I called Target back, make sure you get a reference number on your first call. When I told the person the second number wasn't working they immediately, with me even asking. The Manager informed me the Alco has told them the number would be fixed. She then took down all me info and sent it to an internal Alco email address she has. I was told to expect a call or email within two business. If this does not happen I can call her back and she is than authorized to call an internal Alco phone number. She was very nice and very helpful as I was talking to her, but she seemed very guarded about what she could say, and how she said it. That makes me wonder if there aren't legal issues going on they can't talk about. Sorry to be so long winded but, people on this site have been helpful to me so I thought I would pass along what I know. Good luck to all.
