Need a repair shop in NY for out of warranty Olevia
Olevia is flickering all the time - even without cable connection, the blue screen keeps flickering - I understand this might be a power suppy/invertor issue. Instead of sending it to Olevia in california, Is there a repair shop I can go in NY city?

Re: Need a repair shop in NY for out of warranty Olevia
Just about any TV repair shop in NY city can fix it for you unless it is under warranty. If it is under warranty, let me know and I will look up an authorized service center for you. But you do not need an authorized service center if it is not under warranty.
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
Best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repair professionals here in the US. click here to Talk to a Technician (only for users in the US for now) and get all the help you need. Goodluck!

the lcd cable that joins the screen to the motherboard is most probably
faulty. To fix it you need a new ribbon cable.
Samsung will charge to sort it without warranty however the NC10 has a
12 month warranty so check your receipt date. Failing that a local
computer shop is likely to be the cheapest option.
Please connect the laptop to an external monitor. If no flickering on
monitor screen, from my previous experience, this is more likely loose
connection of video cable connected to the LCD. So talk to Acer support
again and require the replacement of LCD.
This is most likely caused by either a loose connection or a faulty screen.
If it's under warranty i'd suggest sendng it in otherwise you can either take it to a local repair shop or repair it yourself.
you take the ds apart disconnect the top screen and then
re-attatch it just to be sure if its the connection or not, if a
re-connection works then your sorted... if not you will have to replace
The screen can be bought from
ebay. You will also have to do a bit of
soldering as the speakers will need to be removed from the old screen
and soldered onto the new one.
If you need any more help with changing the screen then give me a message and I will do my best to help you out.
You need to take the unit to an authorized repair shop to have it
check and correct it , looks like the power supply section got affected by the sudden change of voltage and damaged an internal part, hope this helps , AJ
Don't worry about embarrassment, there's a world of difference between software and hardware.
The flickering is most likely either a loose wire or more likely a partially snapped dry solder joint where the florescent panel behind the screen is connected. Since the laptop lid is opened and closed frequently, even the smallest of movements over several years can stress a dry solder joint to the point where it cracks.
Unfortunately it's not a user serviceable thing, but you may not need to return it to HP - a local specialist in flatscreens or more ideally monitors is likely to be able to mend it. Since it's so far out of warranty anyway it's not too much of a risk to use someone not HP approved since they can't invalidate a warranty that's long expired, so get your local phonebook out and start searching for someone who can give you a quote on a flatscreen backlight repair.
You both need to IMMEDIATELY download your warranty from the Olevia website. Read it completely. If you are still under warranty, then contact them IMMEDIATELY in writing pursuant to the warranty and demand that they fix the TV for free pursuant to the warranty. Do not accept "No" for an answer. Document every communication and contact you make, including date, time, who you spoke with (first and last name and/or employee number), and the content of the communication.
Do not delay on contacting them, because the warranty is controlled by the date you purchased the TV. If it passes, then you are totally screwed. Olevia will ignore you.
Do not buy any Olevia or Syntax products in the future. Tell everyone you know to not buy their products either.
