Olevia Syntax 42 inch turns green through hdmi

I have a few items in my house that can use hdmi yet I don't get to use it because everytime I hook something up to my tv it all turns green. I have tried reaching Olevia several times about this. The first time was right after buying my PS3 which was the first piece of equipment I purchased that really needed hdmi at which point they told me they havent had an opportunity to test it with a PS3 yet but they would get back to me as soon as they did. I never heard back from them. About 2 months later I called back never got a technician only got to leave a message. I called back a month later still didn't get anyone left another message. This has been going on for about a year now and I don't think they are going to help me and my tv is no longer under warrenty so maybe you can help. I have been told that it can be fixed with a new hdmi card or something like that and it is easy to replace but where can I find one. Any thoughts? thanks guys

    I have the same issue. Whenever I use any HDMI device the screen has a shade of green. I can get it to go away only by turning off my tv then turning it back on. This is caused by a syncing issue between the TV and the HDMI device.

    I have the same issue. It happens with any HDMI connected device.

I had this problem running my pc through my television through DVI to HDMI as well as a normal HDMI cable. Now, I'm not sure about the ps3 but my problem was stemmed from the digital color format settings. When set to component video color settings rather than RGB or HDMI the screen looks great with no issues. I believe this is an issue with the tv itself which is why I had to "trick" it into working. However, I don't own a ps3 so I don't know if it's possible to change settings like that. I know it's not much, but I hope it helps.

Picture rasterization


It sounds like the LCD controller board problem, usually if you cool it down the problem will go away, and comes back when it heats up again.

Olevia 42 inch Flat Panel has power supply issue... Blue light does not come on and tv does not turn on... I have tried all different things to get tv to work with no positive results


What did you try so far? The main power supply MUST have at least the 5V standby supply section working. This 5v is used by the main control board to send out the command to turn on the main power supply section which will power up the rest of the TV circuits when the power switch is activated either by the power button of remote or on the TV powern button. Look for this 5v first.

Sounds like a power suppply problem. Not something that the novice can repair besides trying the usual unplugging and plugging back in.
