Question about TruTech PLV16320 Television

3 Answers

Not Working My husband and I had purchased this tv a little over a year ago and few months ago while I was watching tv it just shut off. I tried other outlets and nothing. The red standby light does not even come on. Does anyone know what could have caused this and if it would even be fixable, it would be quite a waste of a thousand dollars if it isn't. Thank you to anyone who can offer some help/advise!

    Same problem.  No red lite when connected to a known good outlet.  TruTech's website suggestion of plugging in to a known good outlet and nothing else if that fails to correct the problem is next to useless.

    We bought our daughter a TruTech TV for her college dorm less than a year ago. It just stopped working, the red light does not even go on, tried other outlets and cable, still no luck. It is so unfair to spend so much money on a tv that you think is reputable and then one day it does not work in less than 1 year. Extremely frustrated!!!!!!!

Open the back of the TV,and look at the can shaped items 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.I hope this helps.If you have any other questions,please let me know.Thank You very much!

I called 888-252-6252, they said they'd repair my two year old PLV 16320 for $145 and pay shipping both ways. After checking locally, I decided that was the best I could do. Most of them didn't even want to look at it cuz it wasn't a name brand.

BTW it wasn't the power supply fuse. I checked it after removing a bazillion screws. Hardest piece of electronic gear I've ever taken apart tho mechanically it's very stout.

How to repair my Samsung TV? When the TV is turned on it powers on and off non stop until unplugged.

Hi, the motherboard could have been affected. Since you have ever replaced the power supply, its better you get a new motherboard.

We purchased the Kenmore Elite with the bottom freezer about 2 1/2 years ago. About 2 months ago, the ice maker stopped working. My husband tried everything he was supposed to and it still doesn't...

I realize that your unit does not have thru the door ice but this manual : https://secured.whirlpool.com/Service/SrvTechAdm.nsf/2cd44500d572193285256a45004fd9d6/8527f904cc8ea8cd85256b5800672333/$FILE/4322658A.pdf

should help your husband solve the mystery if he can use a meter and have a jumper wire..

Just use the icemaker testing part.

If you can not download the manual this link is VERY helpful:

Repair location in my area

Try AWCI.com for someone in your area. I recommend a good watchmaker even for a cell replacement, they will usually clean the case and band, do a consumption check, a min run voltage test and a water resistance test and new seals to keep watch fresh.

36" Sony Trinitron blinking red 4 times-PLEASE HELP QUICK!

Sounds like a typical high-voltage failure. Could easily cost another $300 to have it fixed. If it is less than about 6 years old I'd say it was worth fixing. If you want to DIY, then pull all the electronics out (label all the connections) and send it all to either Module Exchange at 972-298-1212 or PTS Electronics 800-844-7871
