Question about Olevia LT42HVi 42 in. LCD Television

2 Answers

Olevia 540 We've had this tv for about 20 months. No problems until yesterday. The picture seems to bleed over in to next frame; colors are way too saturated. No one had touched any controls - this just happened. My son says it's probably a "Crystal" and that it's not fixable - or cost prohibitive. I've never heard of a relatively new tv going this fast. Is it possible?

Picture rasterization


It sounds like the LCD controller board problem, usually if you cool it down the problem will go away, and comes back when it heats up again.

Olevia 537H LCD - Set up options now disabled


No idea what happened but about an hour after posting this the TV started to function properly - now I can switch everything that was previously lokced up. So I'm all good - hopefully it doesn't do it again.

Works fine but turns off Sporadically


seems like the tv power supply is having some issues.. you might want to try leaving the television unplug over night.. and turn it on the next day .. if the tv still turns off by it self then try plug in the tv straight to the wall or try a power strip if the problem is still there.. then the television's power supply will have to be replace or repair..

There is a 3rd party repair center that is able to service Olevia televisions.. the service center is called Amergence Technology 866-965-3842 they could get you a repair quote..

Why are the menu settings that I changed not being saved? A. The TV is in Showroom mode. The following steps will help you switch to Home mode.
  1. Press Menu button from the remote,
  2. Press Down arrow key until you see the word Picture, then press the Right arrow key,
  3. Press Down arrow key until you see Mode, then press the Right arrow key,
  4. Press Down arrow key until you see Power Up, then press the Right arrow key,
  5. Press Down arrow key until you see Home, then press the Enter key,
  6. Press Menu button four times to exit out from the OSD Menu.
***Showroom mode is designed for retailers to display the TV and to protect from shoppers changing the settings that are predetermined for shelf display environment.***

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.

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.

Cannot Control Picture Settings?


First thing I would do is unplug the set for about 20 seconds then if you still had the problem, have it fixed by an authorized repair shop for that brand as it should still be in warranty.
