SOURCE: no picture no sound

After taking the screws out and removing the back, you will see a power supply(where master switch and cord connector are). Remove the 4 screws on the aluminum cover plate to gain access to the fuse. Using a voltmeter, with the power on and switch on, measure the voltage on each side of the round fuse located just behind the cord connector. If voltage is 0, fuse is good. If voltage between 115 and 125 V, replace fuse or have fuse replaced. I think it is a 6.3Ah 250V class fuse that is soldered into the board. IF YOU ARE NOT FAMILIAR WITH SOLDERING TECHNIQUES AND PRECAUTIONS, DO NOT ATTEMPT TO DO THIS. IF YOU ARE NOT FULLY AWARE OF ALL SAFETY PRECAUTIONS NECESSARY TO MAKE THIS REPAIR HAVE A QUALIFIED TECHNICIAN DO IT FOR YOU!!!!!!

I had the same problem with the exact same TV. I took it to a local TV shop. My problem was fixed by replacing the T-Con controller board. The cost of the part was about $85 and labor $125. There are no "new" parts out there for Olevias because the company is out of business but I did find a part pulled from a "damaged in transit" TV. It's a personal decision (assuming the parts can be found) as to if its cost effective to repair the TV.

Olevia 237 t12 has hummmmmmmm in the sound


Does the hum go away when you mute or turn down the sound completely? If it does then the issue might be one of the sources connected to it IE: DVD, Cable Box, Satellite receiver..

What kind of bulb goes in the olevia 237-t12


LCD TV backlights, which are not user-serviceable, are a special CCFL (cold-cathode fluorrescent lamps) that is a model-specific repair part from the manufacturer. A LCD panel typically has multiple CCFL tubes, and it depends on the size of the screen.

Firmware update Failed


I had the same problem with my olevia 242-T11. I flashed it with the wrong firmware and the TV would not even turn on. The blue LED light would still light up and my PC would still recognize a connection when i hooked it up to the USB cable connected to the TV.

I was fortunate to download the appropriate software. The software is called MTK_DownLoad1.exe. I know this is the correct software to use for Olevia 242-T11 and Olevia 237T. I do not know if this will work with other models.

Here is the link to the MTK_DownLoad1.exe
http://rapidshare.com/files/17475900...load1.zip.html

You will also need to install the USB to Serial driver before you are able to use the MTK Download Utility. The USB Driver is located at
http://rapidshare.com/files/17475900...river.zip.html


BE SURE ONLY TO UPDATE YOUR TV WITH THE CORRECT SOFTWARE OR YOU WILL BRICK IT. I was lucky enough to recover my TV and finally able to upgrade it to the correct firmware but my TV was non functional for about a week and this has been a huge headache and if i could go back in time i would definitely not do it so please ask yourself if its even worth it risking upgrading the firmware of a TV who parent company is reorganizing after declaring bankruptcy.

If you still want to do this, here are the firmwares for all the various Olevia models.

I hope this helps all the people who need to recover / unbrick their Olevia TV's. If the links are down or you need any help please ask for help in avsforums. My id is sammykismail on avsforums and i will try my best to help you.

Remote control codes


Go to Best Buy and buy the DirectTV Universal Remote Control ($20 and works with all cable and satellite services) Model RC64. It will control all the functions on the Olevia TV and Satellite box, except the A-B-C-D buttons for the User Guide.

The remote codes are:

RCA Satellite Box - 00392

Olevia 237-T12 - 11610

Enjoy
