Question about Syntax LT30HV 30 in. HD-Ready LCD Television
I know it's been a long time since people posted here but the answer is an easy one. On the inverter board you will see a chip that says "OZ960" on that chip you need to solder an led from pin 10 to pin 16. I used digikey's part number L10041-ND. I could get into the technical reason but this fix does work.

Thank You TrippinHrd.
I never work on circuits and not good at soldering. I Printed out the PDF for the OZ960 Chip transformer thing on the center of the inverter board. I Bought just a random 1.9- 2.4V max LED from radio shack for like 2 bucks. Used small strands of wire to connect to the pins 10 and 16. (ripped a speaker wire open and put 3 single strands around each pin...pain in the ***, i couldnt solder that small thing so close to the board.... Then soldered the other ends of the wires to the LED. Tested the polarity of the led with a AA battery. According to the chip diagram pin 10 (labeled CMP) is where you connect the + and the pin 16 (labeled PGND) is the - on the LED. If you cant find the PDF there is a small circle in the bottom left on the top of the chip if you look close. That is pin 1 and it goes CCW around to 20. When you push power on the TV the LED glows very bright. and to my utmost amazement, it friggin worked. TV runs great now.
I was friggin excited this worked. I honestly was skeptical on account that i did a bootleg wire job and the comment above said it didnt work. If you do it correct it should work nicely.
THANKS again TrippinHrd

I will try the solution #3 unfortunately DigiKey is out of L10041-ND, but Mike (a great tech rep) suggested an alternative pointing out another product with the closest specs to the unavailable part. That's the L10061-ND which I will buy and try in this fixya experiment.
I would have loved if Trippinhrd could have let us know why/what led him to that solution...also if it has worked for anyone else, please post if your Olevia is still going.
I will put a followup with my results once I get to apply the fix described by Trippinhrd (and btw thx for sharing!) ;D

Syntax's line of garbage (...'cant be fixed, buy new') is just that - garbage.
This can be fixed - part costs $179 from this site.
If you can take apart a computer/tower, you can replace this part, although I wouldn't say it is 'easy' as this website says. For me, took about 1 hour to disassembled it, bag the parts and screws with identifiers and pictures, and another hour to put it back together.
Yes - you will eventually need to buy a new TV, but you can at least limp along for another 12-24 months saving for a TV sold and serviced by a reputable company.

The same thing happened to me when I first bought the television and they replaced it with a new one. I've had no problems for 3 years and now the screen flashes blue and I have no video, just audio. Called customer service and they said that it is probably an "inverter" issue and it's going to be so expensive for the part that I should just consider buying a new television.
