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.

What is the meaning of the name Olivia


The name Olivia was first used by Shakespeare in his play "Twelfth Night". It doesn't mean anything in particular. Specifically, it doesn't mean "olive" or "olive tree" in Latin (that would be "Oliva") or Greek (which would be written as "Elia" ). It's a pretty name though, and because it brings the olive tree to mind, it may be associated with fruitfulness and wisdom (because the olive is a symbol of Athena, the Greek goddess of wisdom).

We bought our Philips 42"


You may have to try reseating the ribbon cables between the T-CON board and the LCD panel, this is very DELICATE operation, if you are not sure, do not do it.
See example of bad T-CON, LCD panel here:

It depends on what the problem actually is; are the streaks colors like red or blue outlines around lettering etc?

The more you tell me the better I can help. I will post a photo or two of what convergence problems look like.
This set is also prone to another problem, on a blank video input look at the screen: you should only see Video 1 (etc) and if you see faint curved lines (red, green or blue) and or the back ground is also wrong color you have the second problem.

let me know which it is.. If this information helped you rate this solution as very helpful as I do this here for free.

Dark shadow-like vertical streaks thru LCD screen (Sharp)


Hi, I have a Sony Grand Wega LCD Projection TV that has a blotted gray streak across the front of the screen. I only use a damp cloth to clean the window and that doesn't seem to help. It really shows up on light pictures and is unnoticed when the picture is a little darker. What can I do to fix this problem???
