The picture went blank on my 42 inch Olevia lcd tv

Heard a loud crack; smelled burned wires and then the picture went blank.
What happened and can it be repaired for less than the cost of a new tv?

What happened and can it be repaired for less than the cost of a new tv?
Anyone would be hard-pressed to give you a definitive answer to that question but if, as it very well could be, the main power supply has failed, you may be able to buy and replace this yourself and I would guesstimate the cost at under $150 US for a new board.
Disturbing part is the chance that the supply was damaged by another problem downstream from it. Most modern supplies can protect themselves from and overload so I think the supply was at fault rather than being a victim.

Hi, My Olevia 42 inch, model342-B11, has a problem with its picture. At first I had vertical lines running down the screen, then it turned into small squares. What do you think is wrong with it?


Parts are hard or impossible to find for this brand but it sounds like the "main" board which processes all signal in and out of the display.

Most likely what happened is one of the capacitors went bad. When a capacitors goes bad it produces a popping sound. This could be an easy and cheap fix if you find the bad capacitor or capacitors. The bad capacitor will have a bulging top most likely on the power board but could be anywhere.

 I heard they were restructuring their company or something.
There has been a change ownership from Syntax-Brillian to Olevia International Group.
Details of Olevia brand  
Unfortunately for all of us (we have 747i) service seems very poor and the failure mode you describe doesn't give me any clues despite 40+ years of service experience.
Ours is still 100% but I now suspect our trouble will come.

WON'T POWER UP


I had the LCD repaired. It turns out that the power supply went out. It cost me a few hundred bucks but it was worth the repair rather than buying a new one for 3x as much.
