Red lite comes on but tv will not power up.


Follow the solution for service port 'jump start' with a usb plug. Plug your cell phone charger in next to the TV. Touch the metal prongs of the service port with the metal part of the usb until you get a brief 'flash' on the TV. Then turn on the tv set. It takes patience and a flash light to do this, so you can see what your touching, as my husband couldn't get it to work, but I could.

Where is the service port?


Service port is as another posted, just under headphone jack on right side where all the in-out jacks are.

There is a thin mylar film you need to peel out of the way. I used fingernail.

Viewing on monitor, after jump-starting with the upload cable that came with my Sony digital camera.

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

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

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.

My service port looks like an 8-pin mini din mouse port


If you are just trying to 'jump start' the tv to turn it on, get a usb cable, like the one you use to charge your cell phone. Touch the metal part of the service port, the 8-pin mini din witht he end of your charger cable that is plugged into the wall, until you see a flash on the screen, then turn the tv on like you normally would. It should turn on. If it doesn't jump it again.
