Question about Olevia MN-27LCDTV-SN 27 in. Television

1 Answer

TV won't turn on, please help......

1 year old Olevia 327-S12 stopped working. Blue light comes on when power cord is plugged in but no response when pushed.....nothing. Remote does nothing as well. It's a nice blue light but I would like the TV to turn on ;-(

This started to happen intermittently. Sometimes if I unplugged the TV, waited a few seconds, plugged it back in...it would work fine. Now it is stuck off with the solid blue power light shining.......doing nothing.....

There is one interesting thing I noticed as this was happening. If I plugged the TV in and the power light came on briefly, then blinked out....then back on solid a split second later....then the TV would turn on and work great. If on the other hand I plugged the TV in and the power light went straight on with no quick blink.....then it won't work.

It almost seems like it wont boot up or something? I checked for bad capacitors and visually they look ok. I tried plugging in USB cord but my computer says "The USB device connected has malfunctioned and windows does not recognize it".

Thanks for any help or words of wise consolation.

    Same problem with my Olevia LT30HV. Took it to the shop and they replaced the power supply. Worked there I tookit home. Blue screen while I put batteries in remote and then nothing since. Took it back and they said I now need a motherboard. Gave me the brush off answer about looking at the capacitors. I will let you know how it turns out.

Olevia 542-b11 LCD HDTV won't turn on. Blue light blinks twice


My Olevia 42" television is several years old. In March of 2012, the infamous "TV will not power on" problem started.

The blue LED light on the front of the TV would go off for a split second, then light up again. The television would not start.

If you are handy with small tools and a soldering iron, you can change the capacitors on the power supply. My Olevia is a model 542-B11.

I bought the repair kit off eBay from seller: sghill99

As of this writing, the seller has sold 37 of these kits. The title of the auction is: Repair Kit, Olevia 542-B11, LCD TV, Capacitors

And if the url is still active, it is: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=230554940338&ssPageName=ADME:L:OC:US:3160

I made the repairs in March 2012 and it is now August 2012 and the television is still working great. It is turned on and off several times every day.

My 42 inch olevia 242fhd-t11 tv just shut off and will not come back on.. The blue led light will not come on either... Also was having intermittent sound issues for the last couple of days prior to it not...


I just repaired this identical problem on the same model TV. You have a bad power supply (also known as an SMPS). The board is model FSP271-4F02, and is about $75. Unlike the main board for this TV, you can find the power board relatively easily. Try shopjimmy, for example. Replacing the board isn't too difficult if you have a reasonable mechanical ability, have some tools, and are careful.

Tv isnt coming on but is getting power


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. From what you have described it seems the issue is with the power board or the main board and we’ll need to check few things. When you open the unit up; take a look at the power board-the board where the power cords/plugs goes into. You might see some filter capacitors a little bulged up in the top-If this is the case-this is your defective part(you can try to replace them-but some soldering equipment is needed). If not, then probably the main board has gone bad. This is the other board-where all the inputs are going into. All this is only recommended if you have electrical expertise and know how to solder/re-solder components. Please note that the TV components consists high voltages even when in off position. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.



Thanks
Rylee

TV tuner


Bill, did your tuner go out? I have had the same television for one year. We had a storm and our Buckeye cable went out. All the other tvs came back fine except for the room with the Olevia 232-S12. Everything works now except for the tuner. Cable came in and installed a converter box. Just wondered if you had the same problem (not the storm, but the tuner)
