Vertical line of dead pixles on Olevia 237T LCD HDTV

I purchased an Olevia 237T 37" HDTV from Target in March of 2008. A little more than 90 days after I purchased it, the TV developed a single dead pixel, a red dot in the center of the screen. Then it mysteriously went away for a while, and reappeared a few months later. About 3 months ago, where that single bad pixel had been, the entire vertical row of pixels died, and my TV now has a narrow vertical line of red dead pixels running up and down its center.

Any thoughts? Is this a simple, do-it-yourself repair? Something worth paying a local technician to repair out of pocket?

(The Olevia manufacturer, SyntaxBrillian, is employing protracted delay and deny tactics to avoid servicing my TV, despite my owning a valid extended warranty.)

    Well thanks for telling me my red dot will get worse. What did Target say?

Replace the screen. It is faulty and is covered by your extended warranty. Any problems, contact your Trading Standards Office.

SOURCE: Olevia 242T 42" LCD HDTV - Suddenly No Picture, Nothing Works

 I heard they were restructuring their company or something.
There has been a change ownership from Syntax-Brillian to Olevia International Group.
Details of Olevia brand  
Unfortunately for all of us (we have 747i) service seems very poor and the failure mode you describe doesn't give me any clues despite 40+ years of service experience.
Ours is still 100% but I now suspect our trouble will come.

SOURCE: White screen with some colored vertical lines

christoph430. Your TV is hosed. Olevia will not fix it even if it is still under factory warranty. They are having lots of issues with their products and it will be too costly for them to pay for the repairs they should be covering. They are hoping you have an extended warranty through whomever you bought the TV from and will let that company deal with what should be THEIR problem. The repair company has to try to fix the TV at their cost. Nothing but a scam. We will never buy an Olevia TV again. Respond to rlarocque1@cox.net if you would like to understand details about our frustration with them. Unbelievable. Sorry for the bad news.

SOURCE: I updated my olevia 237t firmware. Halfway through

Try flashing the firmware again.. as long as you have the blue light on the television then that means you still have power.. so you need to re- flash the firmware and it should work..

**Also make sure you are using a windows XP not VISTA** The firmware program only works with windows xp.

We are mounting the Television and would like to remove the base. How do is come apart


if you look at the rear of the set you will notice 8 screws, they should have arrows on the housing pointing at them. Have 2 people hold the display while you remove the screws. have them continue to hold it while you put the mounting plate on the rear of the TV. Below you will find links to the Mfrs.
