Hi,

The Only way to Reset is to Unplug the TV for few minutes, that you already did.

As you also mentioned that Thundering and Lightening, Red Light Blinks which indicate there is an Internal Failure. More often in these situations, it is the Damage to the Power Board. Any Change in Voltage could result in blowing out the Caps on the Power Board.

Unfortunately, the only way to Fix this is to Re-Solder the Caps, if Possible unless Power Board might needs to be replaced. The TV is worth Fixing.

If you wish to repair it, i could guide you. However, you might need to do Soldering, Use of Multimeter for checking Continuity.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

    Thank you Taran 2005. Yes I would like for you to walk me through the steps to fixing my T.V. but I am tired now and it's late so can you send me the steps to fixing it and I'll try it tomorrow. If I need to talk to you while I'm doing it can I still talk to you and knowone else?

    Thanks for your response!!

    I would be glad to assist you.The First Basic Step would be really easy.I could explain the First Step now which i am pretty sure would solve the issue. Unless, we need to go for some more steps :-

    You need to Open the TV. Make sure it would be
    Unplugged. You need to Take all the Precautions. Locate the Power Supply
    Board. Remove the Connectors and Pull out the Board.
    If Everything is OK, then you would Locate Bulged / Leaked / Swelled
    Caps. They would have Ammonia kind of Odor. You need to De-Solder them.
    You could take the same to Radio Shack / Fry's / Order Online. Once you
    get the New Caps, Solder them and it is all set.You also need to Check
    Fuses around that.



    The image of Power Board is :-




    The Above one is a Generic Picture only to provide you with an idea.

    Swelled Caps would look like :-




    If the problem persist, then we need to check the Input Power and other Components.

    Let me know,once done.

    Hope i helped you.

    Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

This means that the power supply is bad; do you know how to fix electronic circuit boards? If not replace the power supply.

I have a TruTech KLV3112 10in LCD TV/DVD combo and the DVD door will not open. What do I do?


I would try unplugging it for 5 minutes and then power it back up.
There may be a reset/eject button that you can depress with a pin or paperclip near the door much like an old Macintosh had.
I have long since abandoned this unit and have a Skyview 13" in my Westfalia. You might have to do the same if you need to run DVD's.

Comcast dta remote codes for trutech klv3112


I have a Trutech 10 inch under cabinet DVD/TV and needed the codes for the new Digital Adapter that Comcast is forcing everyone to move to. The short answer is that there isn't a single code that will work for what we all need. After much research I have an answer. It's largely unsatisfactory, but its somewhat of a work around. If you use code 10451 you can get the channel up, channel down, the number pad and the "last" button to work. To get volume functional, change the volume lock on the comcast box. To do this:
1. With the TV on, manually set the volume to a medium high setting
2. With the comcast remote, press and hold SET until the red light blinks twice.
3. Enter 9-9-3 (red light blinks twice)
4. Press and release the digit 1 (red light will blink 4 times)

Now, in addition to channel control, you have volume control. I can't do anything about the power button or other functions. However, this at least makes the remote functional.

Good luck to all!

TV will not turn on


No power and a blinking red light indicates that the capacitors have blown. Trutech LCD's are known to have this problem. A local TV repair man should be abel to repair this problem, But it's not cheap. Repairs could cost as high as $180. Sorry to say you might be better off purchasing a new LCD.

Probably bad inverter board. It has a short in inverter board and as soon as it powers up it detects the excessive current draw and shuts the set back off. Open it up, unplug the power supply connections to the inverter board then try to turn it on, if you get a green light then the inverter is bad. Try E-bay for replacement board.

I have the same problem as well. I bought 3 different remotes and not one will work with the tv. Although all 3 gave Trutech codes (1116, 1504, and 1713).

Yellow?


The official website for this item is http://1800customersupport.com/trutech. Try emailing them, or call them at 1-888-252-6252. Trutech is the store brand for Target stores, so many different companies make their products. This website isn't the official site for ALL Trutech products, just some of them, like this 19" LCD TV/DVD combo.
