Question about Olevia LT42HVi 42 in. LCD Television

1 Answer

After I reset my Olevia 542-B11 with "Factory Setting", the unit no longer performs channel scan. I can navigate to the "auto channel search" manu. But, neither the "air" nor "cable" option work, whether I press the "munu" button or the "enter" button. Under "cable", the option is fixed at "standard" (it has an orange frame. How can I reset the unit to get to search channels again?

Olevia 542-b11 LCD HDTV won't turn on. Blue light blinks twice


My Olevia 42" television is several years old. In March of 2012, the infamous "TV will not power on" problem started.

The blue LED light on the front of the TV would go off for a split second, then light up again. The television would not start.

If you are handy with small tools and a soldering iron, you can change the capacitors on the power supply. My Olevia is a model 542-B11.

I bought the repair kit off eBay from seller: sghill99

As of this writing, the seller has sold 37 of these kits. The title of the auction is: Repair Kit, Olevia 542-B11, LCD TV, Capacitors

And if the url is still active, it is: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=230554940338&ssPageName=ADME:L:OC:US:3160

I made the repairs in March 2012 and it is now August 2012 and the television is still working great. It is turned on and off several times every day.

I have the same problem. Cable went out, hooked up an antenna and it scanned ok. Hooked up a diff amplified ant, worked the same. So watched videos. Next morning tuner would no longer scan or add channels. Now it will not even factory reset. Get to Auto Scan and it goes no further, cable or air.

Olevia 232 s12 Accidentally hit factory reset. now no channels in list. how do I get my channels back?


You'll need to reprogram the channels.
Typically this is found under the settings in some sort of auto program section of the menu.
On most newer televisions, the setting is found under a 'Channel' section.
Just select auto program and your source, whether it be an antenna or a cable source.
When the auto program is completed, you'll have your channels back.

How can I get my Olevia tv back to the factory settings?


It's at the bottom of the Miscelaneous Menu (Book & wrench icon):
"Reset Factory Settings:
Initiating Factory Default will reset all OSD settings to original
manufacture settings. The only items, which will remain unaffected are:

Clock
Auto Scan Channels
Edited Channels
Parental Control Password "
If you are trying to take off the parental password:
"Note: If you forget the password, press "9999" to lift the Password lock
and change to a new preferred password. "
"" = Quotes straight out of the manual.

Tv wont turn on


Replaced two N-Channel Mosfet transistors(FQPF13N50CF-ND) and some faulty electrolytic caps in the power supply. I found the Mosfets online at Digi-Key. Mosfets are difficult to read. Only one read bad but I replaced both because they are in the same circuit. Set works great now.
