    I have the exact same problem. If you read other web sites so do hundreds of other Olevia owners. I happens just a few years after buying the television. Buyer Beware!

    if the picture is still there just in wierd colors is it still a blown inverter??

  • gopher1515 Jan 06, 2009

    if the screen is there just in blue and red and dark colors... example: i can see that it is a basketball game and see the players outlines but I can't make out anything other than that... if this is what is happening is it still a blown inverter?

You have a broken inverter board. I have a LT30HV, and it had the same problem. The inverter board supplies power to the backlight. Swap it out with a good one, and you're back in business.

To test, take a bright flashlight and point it at the screen just an inch or so off the surface. If you can see your picture, then you have a blown inverter.

it may not be worth fixing it. Wait for a good sale on a new one. My inverter cost about 150, and it was a remanufactured part. Not as good as the original part as it flickers just a tad. I had to take the entire TV apart, with pieces literally everywhere. My cats loved it.

LG 26LH2000 television. Last 2 days when I turned my TV on there was only sound, and black screen.


back - light problem. Check and replace damaged component/s at its back-light inverter board, or replace this board as card basis. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts. It will be best to replace the inverter board as card basis. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/ To some model sets; especially LED back-lighted types; the back-light inverter circuit will be part of the main power supply board [SMPS]. In such cases, the power supply board might need replacement. To some models sets, the back-light inverter and SMPS section circuit will be integrated at its main board itself. If so; the main board should be replaced. To some models of sets, all these section circuit will be integrated at its main board. If this is the case, you have to replace the main board.
