Question about TruTech PLV16320 Television

1 Answer

No channels showing

Approximately four months ago, the screen suddenly went all red. Then the color was off terribly. The skin tones were either very orangish or just dark grey. After tons of tinkering things gradually got better. Then on Sunday night I heard a popping noise and the cable was not coming through. I checked the other tv to see if the cable was still operating and it was. First, I could only get three channels and then it went to one. I disconnected the plug from the wall and did the same with the cable wire and left it off over a day. Last night around 10:30pm I reconnected the cable wire and plugged in the power cord. When I turn it on, I hear the channel in black and white snow and after a few seconds there is nothing but the blue screen. I really miss my shows and I miss my tv. What gives? Can you help? Thanks,
Sam: husky9273@bellsouth.net
PS Yes, it did come from Target last year 2006 for Christmas as a gift. The DVD part works great!

    This is the 27in screen tv. If there is no solution then just let me know. I guess I'll have to purchase a new one via layaway. So close after Christmas.



    Thanks,

    Sam

If you are using Direct TV or Dish Network call their tech support.
If you are on cable TV, call for a service man.
I would say that your TV has lost its sync separater chip and it shouldn't cost more than $60 dollars to fix, if the repair guy is honest. It's a 30 minute job.

Comparing Nikon to Canon or Canon to Nikon is like comparing Ford and Chev. They both do the job some swear by Chev while others swear at them same with Ford.

To me Nikon had a more unflattering skin tone and I was and still do tweak the color in an image editing program.

Very light colored verticle (1" wide) ribbon on LG 42" Plasma TV


The TV is design for 16:9 format. The bars appear when the TV off showing that the TV has been watching under channels which is have 4:3 format for long time. The screen was burn out because no sweepping to those area. This is not critical problem but you can do nothing to fix it. To eliminate it a bit you shoud read the manual, I believe it has mentioned how to roll or sweep the screen. For plasma TV, if you keep watching 4:3 channels fomat, you shoud do it one a month within 30'. Good luck

52" mitsubishi wd-52525 brightness problem


That is the V26 chassis dlp. Which has been plauged with bad capacitors. I have serviced many mitsubishi DLPs and have found that there are 4 1000uf @16v capacitors on the FMT board that can give the video some problems they are C8F21, C8F22, C8F19, and C8F27. These chassis are a real bear to work on. I would recomend a service center that is authorized by mitsubishi do any repairs on that model. Mitsubishi has a list of authorized service centers on their website that you can look up by zipcode. If you need more help please let me know. I am very famillar with that chassis
