To start,

  1. If you are using an home theater system, disconnect it and attempt using the built in speakers.
  2. If you are using a receiver box, ensure that the problem is not the receiver. Test using a DVD.
  3. Try disconnecting the TV and the receiver from power for ten minutes, then test again.
  4. Ensure the TV is not muted.
  5. Test plugging in headphones, if they work, then it is just connector to speakers, or the headphone jack. In that case the simple repair can be done by a local technician. It will still be difficult to find a technician before the game start.

On Olevia TV the sound signal is processed through the digital tuner, that will receive the signal, then is passing through the main controller board, and finally going to the tuner board (different from D Tuner), that is hosting the input/output connectors. The speakers are connected to the main controller.

Olevia parts are difficult to find from third party, and must usually ordered from manufacturer.

Before replacement parts must also be tested at component level by a tech.

For this reason it is rather unlikely that you can have the TV fixed before the Super Bowl, even if I can understand your frustration.

Here my solutions:
To repair the TV:
There is no much that you can do to have this fixed by tomorrow. Contact OLEVIA, by completing a customer service enquiry (see on top), and arrange a repair. Better having the TV tested by a tech rather than attempting board swapping.

To watch the game:

  • Test TV audio out using external speakers or headphones, if it still works, then the problem is the audio output. In that case just get an audio system.
  • If you are using an external receiver, check if the receiver has separate audio out. If it does, get an home theater or audio audio system, such as an home stereo with audio In, and connect the receiver Audio Out to the system.
  • As last resort, and temporary solution, just to watch the game, get one of those small TVs, or an old TV, watch video on the big Olevia, and get the audio from the small TV or from a radio set.

I think that this is all that can be done by tomorrow, apart getting a new TV. Hope my ideas can help you. Start by doing the basic troubleshooting on startup.

All the best.

Loewe tv power

Hi, the original remote that comes with your tv is the correct remote for you. because you have it connected to the sonos-playbar you will now need to use the Sonos remote to control the volume. The Loewe remote will not work for the volume anymore. Sorry.

call LG if you think the TV is not accepting the signal from the remote the TV may have a fault in it. If you have any universal remotes try programing them to control the TV if they work but the other does not it is remote.

Volume issue

Very loud it never gonna be. It's a tv with very small speakers, but I have a lot of customers who complain about that and I checked first the signal source. Sometimes the sattelite receiver or cable box give a sound not so good. The best way to check it is to plug something (an antenna or just a 2 inch wire) in the coaxial plug to see if on the tuner is the same sound. I bet is gonna be stronger.
