Question about Olevia LT23HVX 23 in. LCD Television

1 Answer

Power indicator on, but nothing else

I just bought a used Olevia LT23HVX 23inch TV. It is in excellent shape physically. It had no power cord, so I used one from my computer monitor. When I hit the power button a red indicator light comes on, but that is it. I have no remote either. I don't want to invest in a remote unless I know the tv works. Is there something else I can do to see if it works? I am not familiar with these TV's so I don't know if I have to have cable connected to it for it to do anything. Is this normal? I have it my office where I have no cable/satelite. Thanks for any help you can offer

Re: Power indicator on, but nothing else

Plug a cell phone charger in the service port on the back. The charger does fix the power problem. I did contact Olevia tech support after 2+ hours on the phone and they had not heard of the charger solution and did not recommend it but when the warrenty is out "what the hey". They did sell me a new power board which I installed and that fixed the problem. $50 and return the old one. Need to be familiar with computers or electronics to do yourself.

Olevia LT23HVX screen resolution

what kind of cable are you connecting with? If you are using a Composite or S-Video cable perhaps you may want to use the VGA cable instead and see if that corrects the issue.

Red lite comes on but tv will not power up.

Follow the solution for service port 'jump start' with a usb plug. Plug your cell phone charger in next to the TV. Touch the metal prongs of the service port with the metal part of the usb until you get a brief 'flash' on the TV. Then turn on the tv set. It takes patience and a flash light to do this, so you can see what your touching, as my husband couldn't get it to work, but I could.

It uses a regular power cord, the kind that you would use for a PC.
