Re: faint or no picture on olevia / syntax tv model...
When you tune to a station and get sound I presume the screen is black so do the following.
Place a bright flashlight against the screen. Look for an image around the edge of the flashlight. If you see an image the problem is probably one of three causes.
1) Power to the inverter board is bad. 2) Inverter board has failed.
3) The CCFT(cold cathode fluorescent light) are dead.
Someone knowledgeable in electronics can diagnosis it.

FIGURING OUT YOUR PROBLEM IS ONE THING, BUT FINDING THE PARTS WILL BE THE BIGGEST CHALLENGE. I HAVE A OLEVIA 255TFHD AND IM CATCHING HELL FINDING PARTS. SYNTAX BRILLANT, THE COMPANY THAT MADE OUR SETS HAS GONE OUT OF BUSINESS. PARTS ARE SCARCE
I cant help you with the problem but I have the same tv without the original stand and if you are willing, I would purchase yours. If you would like to do so please email me at email@example.com.
cable or Ant.. ? after the scan if there is no channels found (0 digital, 0 analog) then try with cable or Ant to see if any of them work.. if they still don't pick up any channels and the whole yellow progress line goes across.. then it sounds like the tuner on the tv is bad.. and the tuner is part of the main-board so the whole main-board will have to be exchange or repair.. contact Amergence technology they are a 3rd party repair center that service Olevia TV's and they will be able to give you an idea on the repair cost..

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
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.
Technology, a 3rd party repair company, can offer paid repair services

Since Syntax-Brillian went out of business, Amergence is offering
repair services to owners of Olevia HDTV's.
