Question about TruTech PLV16260 Television
WHEN THE RED STAND-BY LIGHT IS SOLID AND I PUSH THE POWER ON THE TV WORKS FINE. NOW THE RED STAND-BY LIGHT KEEPS BLINKING AND WILL NOT TURN SOLID TO NON-BLINKING AND THIS STUPID TV HAS NOT BEEN WORKING FOR OVER A MONTH! HELP
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.

Open the back of the TV,and look at the can shaped items called capacitors 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.Most of the time the big black capacitor on the power board goes bad,and bottom bulges out,but sometimes it is the other capacitors as well.I hope this helps.If you have any questions,please let me know.Thank You very much!

I bypassed the fuse on my TV with the same problem and realized a new fuse for under a buck would fix it. TV works fine.
