Olevia lcd tv will not turn on.

If I use my tv for a while and don't turn it off it works fine, but if after watching it for a while I turn it off and a few minutes later I want to turn it back on it does not turn on. I have to unplug it and wait a while before I can plug it and turn it back on...

Re: Olevia lcd tv will not turn on.

First you want to unplug the tv for a few hours to reset settings. Plug it back in and then switch the master power switch off and then on.
There is a master Power Switch next to the power cord receptacle, make sure that this switch is on the on position and the blue LED in the front is illuminated (Note: The switch in the rear of the television is in the on position when the line is depressed).
This should get your tv working again. Just needs a good powercycle.

TECH just worked on a tv I just tried it on.

SOURCE: My Olevia 26 inch LCD works for 2 minutes then screen goes out.

It is most likely the Inverter Board. You can buy them online. The Olevia company got bought out and the only way to have them repaired is by sending it in to a repair shop and they have to send it to this company that is repairing the Olevia models (this is the ordeal I had to put up with) I asked him if I could send it to them but he (in an indian language I could hardly understand) told me I COULD NOT. It is a joke. I repaired my 30" (LT30HV) with the inverter board I bought here ( ). It was $149.00 and they have instructions and pictures on how to repair it. You will have to have basic electrical knowledge as to what goes where when you put it all back together again. Other than that, it took me about 35 min (had to figure out where all the screws were) to take apart, 5 min to take the bad board out, 2 min to install the new one, and 15 min to put it all back together. Good luck

My olevia tv wont turn on the screen comes on and then goes off

There's a good chance you have failing electrolytic capacitors either in the power section or the inverter section or both.
Any caps in these sections that look bulged at the top, or bulged/leaking at the bottom (look for discoloration of the circuit board around the base of the capacitor) need to be replaced.
If you repeatedly turn it off and on, eventually it'll probably stay on, but every time you turn it off, the unit will get harder and harder to start up until one day it just won't.
Sometimes you have to do the opposite to start it up and unplug it for some time and then try again.

If you aren't tech savvy, don't worry, read the rest of this solution and watch the videos.

If you are handy with a soldering iron and can identify the power supply and/or inverter / FM section for the backlights, an inexpensive handful of capacitors will likely fix you right up.
Match the capacitance on the capacitors. Go over voltage if you can, and still have them fit.
IE - it's not a bad idea to replace a 10V cap with a 16V or 25V or even a 50V, but don't replace a 680uF cap with a 500uF or a 1000uF (unless you are SURE it's only doing supply output ripple filtering,
and even then, you should go OVER, not under the uF rating).

Most of the caps that go are 10V 1000uF or 3300uF.

I found some great videos of the procedure (for many Samsungs with the same issue) on youtube.

Backlight related video here:

As you can see, this issue spans plasma TVs, as well as large and small LCD TVs and monitors, amplifiers, computer power supplies and motherboards, and other electronic equipment.
The parts are cheap, and skill required is minimal.
A great parts source is Digi-Key, and you can order the parts online at
They typically cost under a dollar a piece plus a flat shipping rate.
The parts usually arrive one business day later.
If you watch the third video, you will see that even someone with no soldering experience can perform these repairs as demonstrated by the woman in the video.

My 42 inch olevia 242fhd-t11 tv just shut off and will not come back on.. The blue led light will not come on either... Also was having intermittent sound issues for the last couple of days prior to it not...

I just repaired this identical problem on the same model TV. You have a bad power supply (also known as an SMPS). The board is model FSP271-4F02, and is about $75. Unlike the main board for this TV, you can find the power board relatively easily. Try shopjimmy, for example. Replacing the board isn't too difficult if you have a reasonable mechanical ability, have some tools, and are careful.

My Olevia 27in. LCD Television does not turn on

Well, at least the standby 5vdc circuit is still working but the problem can be in the controller board is not sending the signal to turn on the main power supply sections, or the power supply itself is bad. Look at the power supply first for burnt parts, bad capacitors.

Olevia 242T 42" LCD HDTV - Suddenly No Picture, Nothing Works

 I heard they were restructuring their company or something.
There has been a change ownership from Syntax-Brillian to Olevia International Group.
Details of Olevia brand  
Unfortunately for all of us (we have 747i) service seems very poor and the failure mode you describe doesn't give me any clues despite 40+ years of service experience.
Ours is still 100% but I now suspect our trouble will come.

LT27HVX no sound!

since it's broken, proceeded to disassembled LT27HVX, re-seated connectors that go to the main circuit board that's in the middle of the tv, there are 3 (single row, about 15 or more pins) connectors, simply unplugged / plugged them several times to clean the contacts, must have been a bad connection somewhere, LT27HVX now works fine, only recommeded if you're technically inclined to open up the tv.
