Power Supply problem? Olevia 265T FHD 65" LCD

I bought this TV in September 2009, it's still under warranty but Olevia is in bankruptcy. They want me to ship this TV to them. It's huge and weighs 256lbs, I also do not have the original box.

The problem started on Friday the 13th, Feb. 2009. The TV would just power itself off, then come back on. It basically hasn't been used since Saturday. I just tried it again after having it unplugged for a few days. It only clicks On/Off within a few seconds now.

I suspect the power supply and considered having Olevia ship it to me and having a local repair shop repair it. Olevia asked if I was sure it was the power supply and not the mainboard. Well NO, I'm not a TV repair person although I have built PC's from individual components and am also a Cisco certified Network engineer.

My question is, are there aftermarket Power supplies? Does a power supply in a TV connect up with modular cables as they do in a PC, or are the connections soldered? Where could I buy an aftermarket Power supply? Only because if the Olevia is a cheap Power Supply, why replace it with the same thing.

Finally, does this sound like the Power Supply or the Mainboard?

    Our 23" Olevia flat screen started powering itself on and off in rapid succession. It did that intermittently for a day or so. Now though, it just won't power on at all.

Wow, you have a big TV.
Sadly, there are no aftermarket power supplies for TVs like the PC.
Everything inside the TV is no different than how a PC is put together. No soldered connections.
The problem with your TV sounds like it maybe the power supply. But it most likely the power inverter board that powers up your LCD screen. It maybe all in one board or two separate boards. It's hard to tell what the real problem is without a service manual to test the boards.

Who services olevia tv


The common parts that go out n the TV is the power supply module and the backlights inverter board, right now the 24vdc power supply section may not be working or the backlight board is bad.

I physically damaged the LCD screen on my 265t fhd. How/where can I get it repaired.


If this is a 65" LCD TV like I think it is, replacing the panel will cost about as much as replacing the whole TV.

The main problem with these LCD's id that the manufacturer only makes enough to fill the orders, and once they get installed in TV's and shipped, there are few if any spares for parts.

SYNTAX OLEVIA LT30 POWER SUPPLY


Yes they are bankrupt, and they did see repair services out to third party vendor- this appears to be phone support at $25 per 1/2 hour.

email response from service inquiry....

Thank you for contacting us. My name is Ravin and I understand that you have called in today for further troubleshooting but you were offered a paid service instead. Based on the information provided, I believe that the following steps should effectively resolve the issue:

I am sorry to inform you that, Syntax-Brillian, the manufacturer of the Olevia Brand, has declared chapter 11 bankruptcy and has ceased all operations. Because Syntax-Brillian is no longer in business the warranty for your product is void.

Amergence Technology, a 3rd party repair company, can offer paid repair services for your television and a paid service for further troubleshooting. Since Syntax-Brillian went out of business, Amergence is offering repair services to owners of Olevia HDTV's.

If you have any further questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact our Support Team at 866-965-3842 Monday through Friday between 7.00am 5.00pm PST

Sincerely,
Ravin

Olevia 37 turning off for no particular reason


I suspect that the main power supply is trying to self-destruct; what you describe could be the switching power supply struggling to stay up and running. It isn't the cable company's problem.
FYI: Olevia has declared bankruptcy so you may not be able to get any help from them.

Olevia 237V S11 Backlight Problems


This sounds like a defective batch of fluorescent backlight sources; have seen this complaint before.
This may be tough to acquire since I don't know how standard those are across the industry and Olevia has filed for bankruptcy so you can't count on them.

Olevia customer service


OLEVIA tV is a F#$King JOKE!!!!!.....I bought my tv in Jan and it went out 3 months after that, let me put it to you like this its Oct and i havent got my tv back to this day.

Got a case number and a tracking number that didnt make any sense. The shipping company they used didnt get paid so its been in there storage for 3 months. In some way if you have been waiting for your tv because of the shipping...Olevia is responsible for trans issue and pulling off on the shipping company.

OVERALL
DONT BUY A OLEVIA TV..... YOUR BETTER OFF WITH A LG!!!
