Question about Olevia MN-20LCDTV-SN 20 in. EDTV-Ready Television

1 Answer

Oliva LCD tv has developed streaks in the screen.

I bought an Olivia 327-S12 LCD tv a couple of years ago and it has just developed streaks on the screen and I can't seem to get rid of them. The steaks actually look like dark stains, as if someone has spilled some coke on the screen. The rest of the screen looks great and I can still see the picture through that darkened area but obviously it's a distraction when watching tv. I've tried adjusting picture settings to no avail.

any and all help is appreciated.
Thanks.

    Thank you both for responding. Your answers have pretty much confirmed my suspicions. Here's a picture of my screen as you requested Lone99star.

    Dan, thank you very much for your explanation of what's going on with my LCD screen. I'll start pricing things out and see what I can find.

    Thanks again.

    Can you take a photo of the screen with a digital camera and post it here.
    It sounds like the screen may be cracked and bleeding internally.

This is an indication of damage to the LCD panel itself. Unfortunately this can not be "repaired". The panle itself needs to be replaced. The replacement panel can easily cost almost as much as a replacement TV, so check around for pricing. You may want to try to locate another defective TV that has a good panel but electronic problems and swap the panel.

    What you are seeing is a deterioration of the internal polarization film. This is within the LCD panel itself and is a manufacturing problem or a defect in the film itself. As I stated this can not be "fixed". The panel will eventually need to be replaced.

I have a 37" Olivia that one of the speakers emits a very harsh static. The speakers are actually turned off but this noise comes through the tv speakers anyway. I want to disconnect the tv speakers


Check the speaker/s. If found OK; check and replace the damaged component/s at its audio output section circuit board. If needy, replace this board as card basis.

Sounds like The main power supply regulator section circuit fault. Either it will be a separate board, or the part of main board. Check and replace damaged component/s at its main power regulator [SMPS] section circuit. Contact any service technician. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts. http://electro-medical.blogspot.com/
It will be best to replace the power supply regulator board as card basis rather than making "Surgery" to it; which usually will make loss for both money and time. Even though you can make it right, it will cost around an amount equal to the cost of a new board; including the cost of (spare parts + service charge) More to say, most of the spare parts to it will be difficult to get from open electronic spare part market. This is true to most of the flat panel TV power supply boards; irrespective of its brand and screen size.
