My olevia tv is not sensing the hdmi input right away.


HDMI has to be able to communicate with each other. In most cases the HDMI issue is with the device connected to the TV and not the TV itself. If you did firmware upgraded on the TV then the issue is with the laptop. Try the laptop on anther brand of TV and see what happens.

TV will not power on


You might want to try downloading the firmware again to see if it grabs it.. i heard if you re try doing the firmware it will fix that problem.. it don't matter if it don't boot up but as long as you have power on the television you should abe able to re do it.. also one important thing .. you have to have a windows XP version for the firmware to work.. if you do the firmware with a windows vista PC then for sure the firmware will not work on the television and will damage the tv's main-board. ..If the television don't work after trying the firmware again then the main-board will have to be replace ..to get a repair quote please call this number at 866-965-3842 and ask to get a repair quote ...

Have the same problem with a 532H - but here is what I did to resolve the issue:
1) Click your Menu button on the TV remote.
2) Go to Screen (click the right button)
3) Go to Main Picture Source (click the right button)
4) Select HDMI (click the Menu button when done)

Firmware update Failed


I had the same problem with my olevia 242-T11. I flashed it with the wrong firmware and the TV would not even turn on. The blue LED light would still light up and my PC would still recognize a connection when i hooked it up to the USB cable connected to the TV.

I was fortunate to download the appropriate software. The software is called MTK_DownLoad1.exe. I know this is the correct software to use for Olevia 242-T11 and Olevia 237T. I do not know if this will work with other models.

Here is the link to the MTK_DownLoad1.exe
http://rapidshare.com/files/17475900...load1.zip.html

You will also need to install the USB to Serial driver before you are able to use the MTK Download Utility. The USB Driver is located at
http://rapidshare.com/files/17475900...river.zip.html


BE SURE ONLY TO UPDATE YOUR TV WITH THE CORRECT SOFTWARE OR YOU WILL BRICK IT. I was lucky enough to recover my TV and finally able to upgrade it to the correct firmware but my TV was non functional for about a week and this has been a huge headache and if i could go back in time i would definitely not do it so please ask yourself if its even worth it risking upgrading the firmware of a TV who parent company is reorganizing after declaring bankruptcy.

If you still want to do this, here are the firmwares for all the various Olevia models.

I hope this helps all the people who need to recover / unbrick their Olevia TV's. If the links are down or you need any help please ask for help in avsforums. My id is sammykismail on avsforums and i will try my best to help you.

HDMI is not working


Some Hdmi signals are not working with some tvs at this time. It is a fighting battle that tv techs are dealing withe everyday. At this point the tv manufactutre will tell us what I am about to tell you. Hook up the composite and wait for a firmware upgrade to fix this. A perfect way to see this is a problem between cable box and tv and not just your tv is to plug in a dvd player with hdmi out if it works firmware will need to be developed if not your tv needs to be exchanged or a new main board.
