Question about Olevia LT42HVi 42 in. LCD Television
We have an Olevia LT42HVi TV connected via Verizon FIOS. Almost reotuinely, the TV will not power on or off via the remote OR the Power button on the front of the TV. If you simply, toggle the on.off switch on the back of the TV udner the power cord, the TV power and remote then work. Is this a fuse problem that requires a technician call? I tried swapping out the Power strip and also just plugged the TV directly into the wall. No differrence. The TV is 14 months old.
I have not had the entire back off of my tv, but will do so tomorrow. my "board" box simply slides into a slot with the connector at the back of it. There seems to be no problem with the "fit" and the connection seems secure. I have plugged and unplugged this box several times thinking the same thing...wondering if it was a bad connection. However, I have not messed with the other plugs in the back. I think that the plug in the upper left is for the LCD screen itself. I did see that one and it looked fine on my set. Because of similar problems I have read about on other sites and from what the "factory" service center told me, I suspect my problem is not a loose connector, but I can't go wrong by checking since I don't have anything now. Thanks for the advice. I will let you know how it turns out.

Well, yesterday I took the back cover off and looked around, had no idea what i was doing but happened to notice a wire harness near the upper left hand corner of the set that looked like it was partly unplugged, so i of course plugged it in snugly, put the cover back on, and, I also toggled the on/off switch just below the power cord and it came on and has worked fine ever since. Don't know for sure if any thing i did solved the problem, only time will tell but so far so good.

You swapped the power strip. How about swapping the cord with another. Most LCD and Plasma TV used a cord similar to the cord use for the power supply of PC (IEC line plug). If still it doesn't work. Time to open the back to access the connector terminal which came loose (Due to heat) if not soldered directly to the power supply PCB. Just pinch the spade crimp, better still solder it. Make sure to lay the TV flat, face down on a smooth surface table if you're repairing it yourself.
