Cannot Control Picture Settings?

I Purchase an Olevia Lt42HDi About 3 Months Ago I Have A Computer Hooked Up My Cable And A Video Game Console, I Was Enjoing A Show One Night And The Tv Just Shut Itself Off.... Thinking Maybe I Hit The Button On The Remote I Turned The Tv Back On, Only To Find The Cool(Blue) Middle(Green) And Warm (red) Settings On My Tv Were Way To "Off" So I Used The USer Setting To Zero Out The Colors To Get A Clean Clean Picture With The Regular Colors, Only To Find That I Cannot Control The Brightness Hue Saturation Or the contrast, The Manual Specs. That the setting Go from 0-100 when some are set as high as 255, if I try to move them down any it goes right to zero making the picture "unveiwable" then will not go back up....This Is A Brand New Tv With Very Little User Time...and has not been knocked or bumbed at all..

Re: Cannot Control Picture Settings?

I have the same exact problem. It just shut off and when I turned it back on, I couldn't adjust any of the picture settings. After a day or so everything was all well again until I tried to adjust the picture and it went back to a dark screen. I was told by Olevia that my Mainboard needs to be replaced and it costs ~$202!! I can replace it myself but come on, why am I spending all this money just to pay for a "Windows" crash?

Re: Cannot Control Picture Settings?

First thing I would do is unplug the set for about 20 seconds then if you still had the problem, have it fixed by an authorized repair shop for that brand as it should still be in warranty.

If an LCD TV has sound but no picture do the following:

Use the source button to ensure that source is not set to the wrong input.

Try unplugging power cord for ten minutes, to ensure it is not a setting problem.

Check all the video cables at the back of TV.

Check Light /Color settings.

If problem persist and does not depend on external receiver or settings, then it is likely an internal fault.

If it has sound but no picture then one of the following parts is faulty, and must be tested and replaced:

The inverter is the high voltage board that provides variable power to the backlight lamp. This is the most common. When inverter is faulty you can get no picture, or a very dim picture that can only be seen by pointing a torch light with a 45 degree angle on the LCD surface from very near distance.
The inverter must be tested by reading voltages with a multimeter.

The LCD ribbon cable/LCD display and connectors.
This is quite uncommon, but happens. If the TV had been hit or moved the LCD cable may have slipped out, or the LCD connector may be damaged.

The LCD controller board.
This is the board that controls the video signal, it is difficult to test, as there is need to read determined values on IC pins. To test this board you need to purchase a service manual and follow the troubleshooting diagrams on service manual.

Input/Output Signal boards.
This are the boards where you connect the video and audio cables, if a signal board is defective, then you may get no picture on particular inputs located on faulty board.

If under warranty contact the manufacturer ringing the number on the user manual.

If you want to repair at your own expenses, just locate any good qualified repairer.

Olevia remote control codes

Have you tried the code searching feature on the remote? I'll look through some service manuals I have, paper versions, for Olevia codes but it may take me a week or more.. Until then try the remote control search feature in the instruction panel that came with your remote and let me know..

Brand new TV and it has a beautiful picture but no sound any suggestions?

S-video does NOT carry audio.

You'll have to get some RCA audio cable and connect them to the audio in ports associated with the S-Video input.

Old video games

 Dear friend try to change your cables if you are using regular A/V cables, you know the white/red/yellow, use a S-video cable and or maybe try to change the Video Input settings in your TV by going in the setup menu and look for the settings that will suit your console the best, most TVs comes with adjustable Video settings that ranges from Normal, Theater or Cinema, Video Game etc. pick the one that works with your systems. If none of this works try to contact the place you bought the TV and ask them for warranty repair or exchange. good luck!
