Olevia 26" Flat Screen

Hi, I bought a refurbed Olevia 26" LCD because it had all the inputs I wanted for my mac and cable to work. It's been working great for me until about a month ago when my 2 year old son hit it lightly and the next morning it didn't come on and then gave me a weird lined screen that was flickering with a lot of random different colors. After about 20 minutes of turning it on and off again like an idiot I got frustrated and hit it on the top of the frame...I know, I know, that was stupid. However, that worked and it's been working perfectly for the past month. Unfortunately my son hit it again last night while i was in the kitchen and I'm getting the same issue this morning. The screen comes on and looks like it's trying to work but all I'm getting is a bunch of blue and white lines and weird patterns coming up. I'm a web designer so I NEED this TV to work. I've thought about dropping another $400 on another TV but I don't know of many with the same inputs as this and would hate to deal with the hassle of waiting. Is there any way to fix this TV??? If not, would you have any suggestions on a good LCD TV that's not too pricey but has the multiple inputs I would need (Computer, audio, cable). Thanks in advance! - brycen

Re: Olevia 26" Flat Screen

I too had a similar problem with my 26" Olevia LCD TV, except it would flicker at different frequencies like a strobe light.  The flicker would even increase in speed, giving the visual illusion that the TV was about to blow up.  After several power-on, power-off, unplug, repeat, I was about to give up and think about looking for another TV. I saw your posts here and both of you "hit" the TV and it seemed to fix it, right?  Same here -- I gave the TV several good lateral "whacks" upon the outer edges of the unit!  The whacks weren't violent, just slightly "jarring" and after that, the TV stopped the flickering.  As you've said, it is quite juvenile to go beating on electronics, but interestingly enough, this method of "fixing" the electronics does at least seem to have an effect if done correctly.
I do also note that I went into the TV's menus and intentionally set the "Back Light" setting to "Dark" and "DNR" to "Low" to perhaps attempt to lesser drive the back light.  Since the beatings and then the much more rational idea of changing the menu options, the TV has worked, at least for a while now, relatively well.

Olevia LT23HVX screen resolution

what kind of cable are you connecting with? If you are using a Composite or S-Video cable perhaps you may want to use the VGA cable instead and see if that corrects the issue.

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

Component input

If you are only getting a black and whiite image, that means you're only getting the luminance portion of the signal through your cables. You either have the Xbox connected wrong, or you have bad cables.

Easy..your tv is not able to scan cahnnels...then, the solution is to plugging "a thing" that can do that: a converter box.

Sharp Aquos LC-32GH5 and MacBook problem, HELP! I've recently bought a 32" Aquos and want to use it with my MacBook as a secondary monitor and screen for movies, etc... I bought all...

it sound like you did the right thing . The problem is the mac output for sound is bad or the TV input sound is bad.
try input a mp3 radio to the TV verify TV is working.
