Can't remove blue PIP (?) section in lower RH corner

I have an Olevia 37" LCD TV and I guess I'm just getting out of touch with all the new bells and whistles. Two issues:

1) I haven't played a DVD on the player hooked up to it in about 6 months because I can't remember how. I try everything on the remote and it's just not intuitively obvious to me.
2) Somehow, a blue rectangle (about an 1/8 of the overall screen) appeared in the lower RH corner of the screen and I can't figure out how to remove it. Very annoying. Help!

When I got HD service from TW Cable, I was told my Olevia remote would not work and I had two remotes (one from TW and one for Olevia). Now I have a universal remote from TW and I can't figure out anything!

    I think the answer is somewhere in the 'menu' selection since I have the same problem after 'tinkering' with the menu and cannot seem to undo the pip either.

Regarding your issue #2 (blue rectangle), this is most likely the "Picture In Picture" (or PIP) feature. I have the same TV and a couple times, when fiddling with the remote, I have activated PIP. Problem is, despite there being a few PIP-specific menu options, there is no apparent setting to disable PIP once you activate it.

One way to deactivate PIP is to do the following:

1. Using the Olevia remote, click Menu

2. Click the up arrow button until the "Setup" option appears

3. Click the "Enter" button to select Setup options

4. Click the up arrow button until the "Factory Settings" option appears

5. Click the "Enter" button to select "Factory Settings"
(at this step I have to wait about 10 seconds for the Factory Settings menu to appear...be patient)

6. When the Factory Settings popup appears, you can use the down arrow button to select the Home option, then click Enter. Understand that doing this may remove some custom settings you have set, but it does remove the PIP.

(Also, before deactivating PIP you can use the PIP menu options to change the inputs for both the big and small rectangles, thereby utilizing the PIP function if you so desire.)

I am frustrated that the manual does not cover the PIP function in sufficient detail, but not as frustrated as the fact that this TV does not offer a code that works with my Comcast remote (and I've tried all the codes provided by others, to no avail). Pretty good TV though.

Blank Blue square on left hand corner of the screen ??


It might not be the same issue, but we had a blue square in the upper left hand corner of our hanspree. To fix it, either press the button headed 'pip' or go into menu, down to calibration and then uncheck the box titled 'pip' there. I hope this sorta yours as it did ours.

Small blue box in lower corner that wont go away


If you have pip or picture in picture, it may be active and set to a source that has no signal which would give you a blue screen.

How do I get the pip working on my tv?


Remember, you need 2 inputs to view PIP. If your set has 2 tuners you need to change to input2 in MENU. If you don't have 2 tuners you need to connect the other device using AUX or Video 2. Please rate.

Power problems


I have a 32'' olevia 232v hdtv. I had a similar problem where the tv stays on less and less as you use it longer and it gets warmer. I called customer service and they explained that its most likely a problem with it is doesnt have enough power to run well. They said turn the TV off, then hit the master turn off switch in the lower back of the tv, then unplug everything from the TV, then unplug everything from the wall. Then after 3 or 4 hours, plug all back in and try again. Then they said if i still have a problem, call customer service at 1 866 9 olevia
