Question about Televison & Video
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?
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.
