SOURCE: No cable signal on 32" flat panel Olevia tv

When you write 'tuner,' do you mean the internal TV tuner or do you have a cable box between the wall connector and your set's input?

If you are connected from the wall to the set, then the sensitive circuitry (it may only tolerate a few volts max video) is damaged.
If your set was a couple of decades old, it might be fairly easy to repair.

If the set was damaged via the cable service, you may have some recourse unless your cable provider has seen fit to absolve themselves from liability, I suspect they have.

I do not know your set but it is not impossible that the video input circuitry for cable and antenna is on a smaller assembly that processes it before reaching the main board.
The latter has obviously survived since you still have the other functions.

SOURCE: says no signal when switched to hdmi when there is one.

Have the same problem with a 532H - but here is what I did to resolve the issue:
1) Click your Menu button on the TV remote.
2) Go to Screen (click the right button)
3) Go to Main Picture Source (click the right button)
4) Select HDMI (click the Menu button when done)

SOURCE: my olevia tv is not sensing the hdmi input right away.

HDMI has to be able to communicate with each other. In most cases the HDMI issue is with the device connected to the TV and not the TV itself. If you did firmware upgraded on the TV then the issue is with the laptop. Try the laptop on anther brand of TV and see what happens.

Setting up your HDMI cable on your PS3 games console

1: Turn on your TV and set its input to HDMI.

2: Make sure your PS3 is connected via a HDMI cable.

3: Power on your PS3 and press and hold the power button for approx. 5 seconds, you will hear the PS3 start to beep, release the power button after the second beep.

Invalid format on hdmi


Unplug set, HDMI, and a box if used for a while--connect the HDMI first and then power to set and or box--see if set will reboot or box.

HDMI does not like power loss, being connected or disconnected with power on etc.

Also in set menu make sure HDMI input is "available".

Receive an invalid format message from my Olevia 32 tv


You get invalid format, or format not support becuase the video resolution setting on your PC is too high for the monitor to display, you need to lower your PC video resolution to the native resolution of the TV to get the best picture. Look at the owner manual for your TV or search the web.

"invalid input" for hdmi


This model TV has specs for DVI, VGA, component video and S-video inputs. Are you using a DVI-HDMI cable? In that case, check your cable specs. DVI-I and DVI-D (single link and dual link) are not interchangeable and I would guess you have the wrong one connected to the HDMI for your unit.

I hope this helps.
