Olevia 32" LCD TV

I purchased a 32" Olevia LCD TV last December from Circuit City. It is still under warranty of one year labor and parts. Last week, when turned on, it would show a pciture on 1/4 th of the screen and the rest was verticle lines and some curved lines. I sent the picture of the TV when on. Olevia tells me that there appears to be a physical damage to the TV and hence will not be covered. I know for a fact that nobody did anything to damage the TV.

Is there any technical component problem that could lead to such physical damage and how do I get it fixed or replaced, when there is no fault on my part. Thank you

I had the same problem at first. Then I went back to fry's and bought a new DVI cable. Make sure you bought the right one.

We bought one as well, sometimes it comes on and sometimes it don't. I think walmart needs to refund our money. They knew they were a bad deal since they don't even carry them anymore.

Call 800-726-4405 - but you will have to ship the television to California at your expense to have it repaired or replaced.

It may have dying 24vdc power supply for the backlight inverter board, but you need to find out first if you can see any backlights, since no pictures can also be caused by bad T-CON board.
To DIY repair you will need proper tools.
First, look at the screen in darkened room to see if you can see any slight glow from the screen, if it does, then the problem can be the T-CON (not getting the 12vdc) or the main logic board not feeding the signals to the T-CON board.
if not, next place to check will be the power supply module, make sure it has 24vdc which is required by the backlight inverter to work, the reason for not having 24vdc can be from bad DC filter caps (leaking/bulging top, high ESR) or short circuits in the inverter board which will cause the 24vdc supply to go into shutdown mode, so you may have to disconnect the power cable that feed the inverter board to see if the 24vdc will work without the inverter board hookup, you will need to apply about 3~4 amp of load to the 24vdc to make sure it can handle that. There are fuses on the backlight inverter boards also. So there is some troubleshooting you will have to do to find out the causes of the problem you are having.

If you are going to DIY and have proper tools, electronics knowledge, and know safety precaution then please read on:

Or, just make sure to use caps with low ESR, 105c, high ripple current and long life rating such as PANASONIC FM or FC series.

Olevia 32 inch tv turns itself off after a min everytime i turn it on its 4 years old? what do i do

Aside from trying different power cords, I'm afraid there isn't much you can do with an LCD TV with a power issue. Since it's four years old, I'm assuming it's no long under warranty. Did you purchase it with an extended coverage plan or anything?
Sorry to be the bearer of bad news. Hope it helps, though!

Green line appearing on screen

Being that the tv is still under warranty. Do not waste another second. Have it sent in and repaired under warranty. If not the problem could get worse and then you have to fit the whole repair bill.
Thank you,

I have over 10 years experience in electronic tech support.

I know this isn't what you want to hear, but the problem you've described can't be fixed with
troubleshooting. Your TV will have to be repaired. There is a part that has developed a defect and needs to be replaced. If you're still in warranty, the TV will be repaired at no charge to you. The warranty would likely be at least one year from the date of purchase from the manufacturer. If you purchased an extended service plan they will repair the TV at no charge as well.

If the TV is no longer in warranty, it will likely cost a minimum of $150 parts and labor. This is assuming that you only need one
circuit board or small part. If the problem is more than one of the circuit boards, the price of repair could go much higher.

I hope I've provided you useful assistance and that this information allows you to make an informed decision as to how to proceed from here. Please be sure to vote on my response. I hope I've earned a good rating from you today.

Please post a comment if you need further assistance so that I can help you further.

The picture blinks on for just a second, then goes black. I can hear the sound, but I get no picture at all. I've had the TV for a year or two, no problems. Last week, I unplugged TV and waited, then it...

The most likely the TV has a power supply related problem. The most common thing to go out is the circuit board that supply power to the screen. Commonly called a Backlight Inverter Board.
I can't say it's 100% the problem because I can't actually look at the tv over the internet.
If by chance the TV is still under warranty, go that route.
If not under warranty and If you have some electronic experience, you can purchase a Service Manual over the internet and diagnose the source of the problem and fix it by soldering in the new part. The Service Manual will give you circuit diagrams, test points, and part# lists. Usually, cost under $20.

I hope I shed some light on the subject for you.

Toshiba LCD TV AV500E Turns off then on every 5 minutes

It sounds to me that the Main board is causing the problem. But I would get in touch with Toshiba for a warranty repair. It has a one year parts and labor warranty. It makes it a lot cheaper for the pocket.
Good Luck,

2 year warranty

the Majority of problems on this and all other LCD TV's are capacitor problems the power pack needs smooth power to work correctly however the warranty should be valid and you need the proof that you bought it and you need to know who to contact about the 2 year warranty it may be Emerson you need to speak with not Walmart. I would contact them next(Emerson), or whom ever the third party repair service is that will cover the Warranty.
hope this helps

Same problem as others. Sony KDF-E55A20-while watching TV, screen goes black and sound leaves too! Will come back on in a few seconds...but continues this cycle. The green light stays on.

You really need a tech to check the error codes recorded in the TV to be sure. You could have a bad lamp driver, but I would want to see if any error codes were recorded

Olevia lt 30 hv

You both need to IMMEDIATELY download your warranty from the Olevia website. Read it completely. If you are still under warranty, then contact them IMMEDIATELY in writing pursuant to the warranty and demand that they fix the TV for free pursuant to the warranty. Do not accept "No" for an answer. Document every communication and contact you make, including date, time, who you spoke with (first and last name and/or employee number), and the content of the communication.

Do not delay on contacting them, because the warranty is controlled by the date you purchased the TV. If it passes, then you are totally screwed. Olevia will ignore you.

Do not buy any Olevia or Syntax products in the future. Tell everyone you know to not buy their products either.

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.
