Olevia 537 - wont select HD channels

Olevia 537
Cable using built in tuner.
I have always been able to select HD channels (ex. 1-1,1-4,1-6 ect)
When I key in the HD channels the tv doesnt repond. If I use the channel up or down button the volume cuts off but it doent show mute.
When this first started happening I could power off and then on a few times until I could press the channel up button and it would scroll through the channels. For the last month every time I press the channel up button the volume just cuts off. (not mute because mute displays mute)
Any help will be appreciated.

    No the control panel keys cause the same issue.

  • binaryfog Feb 20, 2009

    nope ... tv panel does the same thing... i have this same problem .... when did your tv start doing this ... i had this problem as soon as some of the local stations switched to digital antena broadcast..... im wondering if there possibly is a way that the new digital antena broadcast format can update firm ware or some how alter the firmware on these newer tv's with the upgradable firmware.... not sure though ... i didnt note the firm ware virsion before the problem occured .... im going to look for firm ware updates or possibly original firm ware to see if this cures the problem.... it seems like a software issue. There has been no damage to the tv i.e. nothing spilt, kicked, or any other thing that might damage the hardware.

    I have the same problem. Did you ever find a fix?

  • binaryfog Feb 23, 2009

    Nope the control panel is having the same issue..It is not the remote.. i dont have the cd that came with the tv any more and im assuming that the original firm ware was located on that cd .... if anyone has the cd for a 747i please let me know.. I would like to see if reloading the firmware fixes this issue but it seems like olevia has pulled their firmware download links or i just cant find them.... all the links that i have found pointed to olevia's site are broken or no longer active! ... I'm going to try to call them but I hear that can be like talking to a wall...Its a shame .. i bought this tv so i would be good for the "Big switch" to digital but it seems like the tv just quit working right when the channels made the switch ....Another symptom of this issue is that you cant manually enter digital "air" broadcasted tv stations i.e. 13-1 or 13-2 and also the scan for channel function freezes and wont search for channels and the tv must be turned off to exit the function *NO DTV!*. Im kinda curious how many other tvs out there have developed software/ firmware issues after the channels started to broadcast purely digital.

    Same issues exactly, no fix that I can see

    Ive just encountered the exact same problem yesterday with my Olevia 747i TV (Sunday Apr 5, 2009).  In the morning, I was able to watch all my OTA tv channels.  Then later on, turning on the TV, I couldnt tune into any channels anymore.

    I found that resetting the TV nor auto channel searching didnt solve the problem.  In fact, channel searching progress bar doesnt even move at all.  Been seaching the Internet for soluions but no luck yet.

    I'm assuming all signal sources (Air and Cable) don't work? Oh and I have an Olevia 747i / 742i CD and there are no firmware files on it (sadly). I do have the last version of the software (7.5) but without knowing the FM number and whether it's compatible or not, one has to be very careful as it could brick the TV. If you want it anyways, let me know.

I assume the control panel on the tv still works correctly? If so i would think you have a remote problem. If thats the case let me know I will send you a link to instructions to repair your remote.

I can't get my Olevia tv (537-B11) to scan for channels

I don't know this model of TV, however, you may find that you need to use the Source button on the remote to cycle through the available inputs & select digital tuner as the input source before you press the Menu button & go into the setup section.

Make sure you have a good connection from antenna to TV. Check antenna and cable and cable connection to TV. Select DIGITAL button on TV remote when wanting HD channels. Remember HD channels are always digital. Also, any given TV station may not be broadcasting in HD at a given time. They can broadcast in digital but in standard definition sometimes. Your TV has a built-in DVB-T tuner. Try executing a channel scan to pick up all available channels. On-screen menus go to Digital Setup, then Digital Tuning, you can auto-tune or manual tune channels. The TV should take a few min. to scan thru available channels and store the channels its finds. Check with anyone in your area to see if they get HD channels (it is possible to be outside of the range of some TV stations) Your TV is a 2006 model and should still be compatible with local digital TV broadcasts but keep in mind digital signals could change in the near future (DVB-T2) and you may need a tuner/converter box to make the TV compatible.

Trying to set up my Olevia 232-S12 television to my Comcast cable. I don't have my manual. It's the most simple set up but I don't have the manual to let the televison know what source to use or I am doing...

I was able to allow whatever cable it is my apartment provides by using the tuner to auto-search channels. I did this without the remote in case anyone is missing theirs (I found mine). By selecting the tuner from your source options, I (?) think (?) it says 1:1 on the tuner, being the start of the channels, just in case you or whomever may be over-looking the source - tuner - option. From there do an auto search for channels. The more you have the longer it takes. Not more than 10 or so minutes,it's no big deal. This should work, it did for me.

I have a Philips TV, model HD2717 C101. All channels do not display--Why? It skips quite a few channels on scan, the only to get them is to actually select the channel individually.

Hi are you running it off of an antenna or cable?
Assuming you have a digital tuner and are selecting the proper type of channel search Ie: cable or air it could be that the tv needs a firmware update to the tuner.

I have experienced similar issues with several TV's I had an Olevia 37" HDTV that required a firmware update to get the tuner to properly decode channels.

I also have seen lots of cases were people have cable hooked up without a cable box and receive "mixed" channels.

I currently have Comcast and have 6 TV's hooked up 3 with cable boxes and 3 directly off the line. According to Comcast I should not be getting anything besides "basic" channels without a box but using the digital tuner in the TV's does pickup most of the channels and even some HD channels that are not there using their boxes.

Interestingly enough none of the TV's tuners decode the channels into the same "channel." As an example HGTV on 1 TV shows up as 84.4 but then 86.1 on the second and something like 84.11 on the third.

My recommendation run the auto program again then go through channel by channel and see if anything needs to be manually entered or deleted. I know this is a pain in the **** and takes about 20 minutes per TV but hopefully that will tell you if your TV tuner is relocating the channels to another channel.

Lastly if your tuner is not digital or if the tuner can't be updated you may have to use a secondary tuner such as one in a VCR to get the channels you desire.

This whole Digital Conversion that we have undergone has brought to light for me at least that our government and corporations don't care about the real world impact on the ordinary person.

Sure they made money on reallocating bandwidth and sure tons of new HDTV's and digital products (including digital cable) have been sold but I haven't come across anyone who feels they have benefited from the conversion forced upon us.

Hope this helps sorry about my rant.

I have an Olevia 23t lct hd tv. I am plugged in

you said you are using composite cables..? that means you have some kind of cable box ? if you want to get HD channels you have to use a HD box that is supplied by the cable company.. the HD cable box then has to connect to the tv with component cables (green,blue, red cables) or HDMI cable.. to send the HD signal to the television.

You need to have a set top box.

By law, as of March 1, 2007, almost all televisions should include a built-in tuner (called HDTV, digital, or ATSC tuners) that can receive high-definition programs over the air by simply connecting an antenna. Your HDTV doesn't have such a tuner, you'll need to connect an external tuner (or cable or satellite box) to watch high-definition programming. External over-the-air HDTV tuners currently cost at least $150.

You should verify that you are not just simply losing reception from a fault in the antenna.

If the signal is okay from the antenna, it is possible that the TV is having a failure in its tuner or IF sectons just to mention a starting point.
