Olevia 237V S11 Backlight Problems

The backlight on my Olevia 237 flickers all the time, it give the picture an annoying strobe light effect. I have replaced both inverters and there was no change in operation. I have replaced transistors and capacitors on the secondary side of the power supply with no change in operation. I haven't found a replacement power supply yet to try. What else is possibly causing this problem? Has anybody fixed this same problem? Thanks.

    I have the exact same problem. I hope someone can help.

    I ordered a new power supply from Olevia, their customer service couldn't get much worse than it is right now. New power supply fixed the problem, it cost $98 plus $10 shipping. It only took me a couple weeks to get a hold of somebody to order my power supply.

This sounds like a defective batch of fluorescent backlight sources; have seen this complaint before.
This may be tough to acquire since I don't know how standard those are across the industry and Olevia has filed for bankruptcy so you can't count on them.

    I would really like to have a bad supply in possession since I once had an active business repairing switching power supplies some years ago and suspect I know what is causing this type of failure.
    The actual model origin isn't important and I haven't had the misfortune yet of having one of mine fail.


    If you would be willing to let go of yours (assuming you still have it) I would be willing to send you a check in advance for whatever residual value you place on it and a few bucks for packing and shipping it.
    I don't really have any wish to retire from retirement so it would be a matter of curiosity more than anything.


    And, as an added incentive, I would return the supply to you if it can be repaired so you can replace the one you just bought with one that will most likely never fail. 
    I know these beasts.


    If this might be of interest, please email me at the (corrected) address below:

Sony Bravia flat screen TV when turned on has black screen. Green light on the bottom is lite up, electric plug is plugged into house socket, no picture only black screen.


If audio is OK, the fault is with its backlight section. If audio too is absent, the fault is with its digital main board. If you wish to get more details visit the site linked here. Pull up older posts.

I have a lg tv 60 inch tv ln5600 when powering on red stand by light blinks 3 time then no light pic or sound not backlight and no image when using flashlight treid replacing power board does same


Those blinks [flashes] are fault indication (Error Codes). From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit section inside it. This will make repair easy. These are called blinking codes. Make sure about the exact number of blinking of the standby/power LED, by switching On & OFF the set, for at least two times. Count it carefully. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. It has details about blinking codes, and fault locating procedure, to many popular brand TVs and other devices.

I have sound but no picture on my tv


This is a popular question. Most of the time you either need to make sure all connections are not loose or just need to turn off your tv and receiver and unplug. Wait for 1 minute then reboot.
I recommend this short video as it walks you through some diagnostics for other possible problems.
