    I convinced the folks @ Syntax I was a repair guy and paid for a manual. They sent me wrong one, but I've since found several other Olevia service manuals on line. All have NO schematic and provide no insight beyond: is it plugged in? if No, plug in; if Yes, get a new PS module. I've opened mine up and the fuse is bad. Replaced it and it blew instantaneously... see nothing obviously bad.

    Some other manufacturers offer detailed TS info w/schematics...

    I have a 2.5 years old LT42HVI that has the same problem: no power at all. The replaced fuse burnt instantaneously when I flipped on the power. I called support asking for replacement power board but the tech keep telling me to call back later so he can check for availability of power board. From what I can see posted (Olevia reorganization), it looked pretty slim that I could get support from Olevia people. I am now looking for the power board schematic so I can fix it myself. I figure that the worst I can do is fail at reviving an already dead TV. So, anyone know of, or found a schematic please point me in the right direction. I'll appreciate very much. Meanwhile I'll keep on surfing for the answer.

    I ran into the same problem on my LT42HVI. Thought I had it solved with a new PS board from electonica-usa.com, but turned out to be model FSP271-4F02 (instead of FSP271-4F01). So no go there. I am returning this board a will inquire as to availability of the correct one and post later.

    Anyone find any other solutions in the mean time?

If it is a power supply issue go directly to the Manufacturer FSP USA. Get in contact with the RMA department and for about $20 dollars plus shipping one way you can get your PSU fixed. Turn around time is about 3 to 4 weeks so be patient. Once fixed they send you an e-mail with tracking info. I did this an probably saved hundreds of dollars. The removal of the PSU from the TV is pretty straight forward, 4 connectors and just a bunch of screws. Keep track of the screws and where they go also take a pic of how everything was connected to you can reference to put it back together. One warning stay away from a company called Discount Merchant to try and buy a new PSU the sell refurbished junk that does not work. I tried buying from them a replacement PSU that was DOA and they did not want to refund my money and it was a huge hassle and I had to involve the BBB and my CC company to get a refund. Save yourself the nightmare and go through the Manufacturer. Below is the email contact info incase you cannot find the website.

    As of NOV 2010 FSP is no longer repairing this Power Supply and they have no updated version that will work with this Olevia TV. ]= My pover supply went bad again in Jan of 2011. I f any one has any more info regarding this PSU please post.

  • sunnyoutdoor Feb 13, 2011

    I need one too, it's a shame to throw this 5 year old TV away. It was purchased in Wal Mart in San Mateo CA area. I'm sure there's thousands of these units that will eventually need a PSU.

    sunny_outdoors@yahoo.com contact me right away before I have to use this as an anchor in the ocean. This is not a joke. pls help me

  • robsmusic Feb 25, 2011

Hitachi 42HDF52 powers on then shutsdown with a yellow light


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.

Check whether Va & Vs voltage come to the display panel, from the main power supply regulator board. If not, the SMPS board [power supply regulator board] is faulty.
