Question about Olevia LT37HVS 37 in. LCD HDTV

1 Answer

Static electricity damaged my t.v.

My husband went to turn off the t.v. the other day and when he touched the power button he got a shock. now none of the controls on the t.v. work and the remote doesn't work. when we plug in the t.v., it turns on automatically and the channel that was last on comes on, but you can't change channels or do anything about the volume. Should we just get a new t.v. or can it be repaired??

thanks

my daughter tried to change the volume and the same thing happened. She couldn't change the volume or channel, so she unplugged it. Now the power light is the only thing that is on. Nothing happens when I turn on the power. 3 day old 42" LCD- what now?

I think this model has a timer on it, it seems to go when the warranty runs out, not proven but Mine went out about a month ago. My only fix is to plug my tv (via the service port which is COVERED) to the usb port on my computer using my BlackBerry usb cable, in other words the Mini USB. Seemingly I must be logged on to do so and wait for the Chime form my pc, a balloon will pop up for new hardware not recognized (vista) then press the power button and then it turns on, unplug the usb cable and make sure the source is set to tv / video or else it will power back off and you will have to start all over. Theres NOT A PERMANENT fix yet but this is what I do every time I want to use the TV, I have a laptop so I use it as the Monitor just to watch movies. If you have a desktop I recommend keeping the cable handy BUT DO NOT LEAVE THE USB CABLE IN FOR LONG USES. THE SERVICE PORT IS COVERED FOR A REASON!!!

My X46 only turns on by the remote but when it does turn on it only goes to the Sceptre screen then powers off again. When I shut it off the night before there was a static shock when I hit the power...


That little shock has between 500 to 21,000 volts. Sensitive transistors and microchips definitely get damaged permanently from static electricity.

Electric shock from an unplugged Nintendo wii - how is this possible


It was probably just static electricity. Sometimes the body build up static electricity by just walking on a carpet or from friction of the clothes being worn. He then got the shock when he somehow grounded himself.

My camera(panasonic dmc-zs1) has apparently been damaged by static electricity. I did feel a static shock when i went to pick it up. It will turn on and off but will not respond to any of the buttons...


When electronic hardware take a static shock it scrambles the processor and locks most functions down. One possible solution is to remove the battery and the memory card and allow 30 minutes to get rid of any residual charge and allow the processor to reset. Replace the battery only at this point, now try your camera to see if it will operate, if all goes well load the card back in, if this fails it is more practical to replace the camera and cheaper in the long run.

I touch the on/off button on the Prima TV to turn


I am sure you had some strong static electricity. The static spark arced to inside of the TV in to the circuit board. Many of the low cost TV sets have poor static electricity protection.
In most cases there is damaged caused by static shock to electronic devices.
Just for curiosity, you can try unplugging the set from the AC mins and plugging it back in to do a simple reset, in case there is no damage and some logic device became hung up.
Last year I picked up my mobile phone and got a static shock from it. I had to get a new phone. This phone never worked again!
