Question about Olevia LT37HVS 37 in. LCD HDTV

Loud static blasts

Periodically, and for no apparent reason, my 37" Olevia HDTV will emit a LOUD buzz, or static blast (the only way I can describe it). If I am away from the room, I'll have to run back and turn the set off, then turn it back on to stop it. After that, it will usually perform well, however we can't leave the house with the TV on for fear that this frighteningly loud noise may result in an explosion or something worse. It can actually be quite unsettling

    Since I have no external speakers connected to the set, I'm assuming, possibly incorrectly, that the emanate from the internak speakers. When I turn the TV off and immediately turn it back on, it works fine until I finally turn it off for the evening.

    I have no idea what a "LOT" unit is.

    I am assuming that since the volume of the sound is grossly disproportionate to the prevailing speaker volume at the time, that maybe it isn't being broadcast over the internal speakers.

My FStar TV does the same thing. Functions fine for a few hours and then blasts out a very loud medium to high pitch squeal, sometimes as loud as an air-horn. Happens on all inputs and the sound is far louder than the loudest volume I thought my TV speakers were capable of generating. It lasts about 7 seconds. I also have 7 second periods where there's no volume at all. I think it's a bad power supply or the electrolytic capacitor. As an electrolytic capacitor ages, its capacitance usually decreases and its equivalent series resistance (ESR) usually increases. The capacitance may abnormally degrade to as low as 4% of the original value, as opposed to an expected 50% capacity degradation over the normal life span of the component. When this happens, the capacitors no longer adequately serve their purpose of filtering the direct current voltages on the motherboard, and a result of this failure is an increase in the ripple voltage that the capacitor is supposed to filter out. This results in a system instability.

Static noise can come from a number of places. The key is to try and find a pattern to when it occurs. Does it only happen after the unit has been on for a while? Is the set still under warranty? DO NOT open it up if the warranty is still valid. Since the problem seems to come and go, it suggests either a heat or connection problem. Given the signal levels inside the set, connection problems can occur and result in many types of problems. Try to post the following info and we should be able to help further:
1) Look for a pattern of when it occurs.
2) Does the set work for a while even right after a power cycle to clear the initial problem or does it occur again right away?

Thanks,
Dan

    Thanks for the update. The next step is to determine whether or not the sound is coming from the speakers. I suspect that it is. Bad coupling capacitors in the audio path can cause this. This is important: is the set under warranty? If so, return it for warranty repair. If not, we'll need to start looking at hte audio path. Are you comfortable working inside the set? Are tyou familiar with electronics?

I have a 42 inch Hitachi plasma tv that is making a very loud static noice coming from the internal speakers. It stays at a contstant very loud volume unless I completly mute the tv or turn the volum


Based on what you have tried if a buzz or loud static via the speakers you have something wrong in the audio output circuit of the set--problem here is that circuit may be part of the Main board that processes all signal---a look inside---following the speaker leads back would lead you to that board.

A simple thing to do to narrow it a little (you may have done this) is with sound all the way off put your ear to the internal speaker--hear anything at all like a deep hum?

Depending on age of set and cost of the board likely bad it may or may not be a do it yourself repair.

The high pitched noise is coming from the Tcon board. It is not properly decoding the signal coming form the main board correctly. The only way to fix it is to replace the Tcon board. You might have a hard time coming across the part because Olevia has since gone out of business. Also, usually Tcon boards are not available sepertaly and most manufactures make you purchase the whole LCD panel of which the Tcon is included.

Sound on Olevia 237T cuts out but comes on again if I change channels. Sometimes i get a loud squeal or buzz, which also stops as soon as I change channels. How do I fix this?


You need to find out if the prolem is in the power amps that drive the speakers are bad or not, Try using Powered PC speakers hooking it up to the Audio line out RCA jacks to see if you get the same problem. If it is OK then the problem is in the power amp sections, it can be bad power amp IC of bad filter capacitors in the power supply that provided power to the power amp circuits.

How do I fix bad static? Dell W3706MC 37 in. HDTV LCD has been fine and suddenly the sound has loud static on all sources. Is this a sound circuit failure?


Yes,loud static usually comes from bad isolation of sound signal path so it's probably a frayed cable or a loose jack. Or if you're unlucky some parts inside have failed.

Auto volume has little or no effect on loud commercials


This may not be a problem. I believe there is an audio effect used by video production houses to 'boost' the presence of an ads audio and this effect is not picked up by the electronic device's (in this case TV) volume stabilizing software. It is intentional by the makers of the ads.
A work-around could be to try different configurations on your TV's audio settings, such as just mono, or just 2channel stereo, or surround sound - on or off, increasing/decreasing bass and treble levels in different combinations.
The down-side to this is to get a comfortable, uniform level of volume across the board, you maybe sacrificing some sound quality - but, as with our eyes, our ears adjust well quickly (hence don't listen to too loud sounds) and what you may not like now, will sound ok tomorrow.
I can't tell if there is a fault or not, but this may help if you "trial" some options.

Olevia 37 turning off for no particular reason


I suspect that the main power supply is trying to self-destruct; what you describe could be the switching power supply struggling to stay up and running. It isn't the cable company's problem.
FYI: Olevia has declared bankruptcy so you may not be able to get any help from them.
