Trutech plv 16260 red light but no power to unit

    My 26" did the same thing last week.. I have sent the company numerous emails @ http://www.18002526123.com/request.aspx and of course no response. I also called a TV repair and they said that they would have to get the parts from the company so if I am having this much trouble getting in touch with them so will he and that it is probably not worth fixing.

I got 70judge to fix mine, I sent my power supply board out to him, and he fixed it and turned it around to me in 2 days. Highly recommended.

Open the back of the TV,and look at the can shaped items on the boards.If any of them have the tops,or bottoms bulged out,they need to be replaced.This should get it working again.I hope this helps.If you have any questions,please let me know.Thank You very much!

It could be the power supply board or the inverter board. Sometimes both can be bad.. that set is made in china and parts can sometimes be very hard to get. The cost to repair may be cost prohibitive.

TV won't turn on. The red light is not on either.


the power supply in this unit needs to be reapired or replaced, there is a fuse but I would not recommend changing it unless you have a tech do a visual exam of the caps in the power supply unit otherwise you could smoke the whole tv. Good luck

Trutech tv model #PLV16260


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.
