The electronics are known to go bad with these TV's, and I'm looking to buy someone's junk TV that has a good screen, rather than have to throw it out.   
(So if anyone is out there with a 532-B12 that isn't working, send me a message!)

Yours might be worth fixing - however I know sadly that parts are nearly impossible to get for these TV's, and the manufacturer is virtually impossible to contact.
If you DO manage to contact anyone (manufacturer or otherwise) who can source or supply parts, PLEASE do let me know - it's been nearly impossible for me, and I want to replace my cracked screen in my TV.
If you can't, please let me know - I'll gladly give you a few bucks at least to salvage the screen from your TV, to transplant into mine, rather than turning it into junk on your curb.

    Apparently there's no messages here...
    Email me at "geolemon at yahoo dot com" if you have a 532-B12 that isn't working but has a good screen.
    Good luck!

Hello rqromero2,

I found this on HP's website. I hope it helps

Picture quality problems (such as lines, fuzzy image, or wrong colors)Check the cables and connections:
  1. Make sure that cable connections are securely fastened to the connectors and try reaseating the connectors. If connecting a device using component cables, make sure all three color-coded cables are connected correctly into the corresponding connectors.
  2. Check the condition and length of the cables. Cables that are longer than 3 meters (10 feet), become more susceptible to promoting signal degredation (small dots "sparkling" on the screen and image ghosting). Cables that have been bent or pinched may also cause picture quality problems. Replace the cable or try a different cable type.
    Press the CH button to display a different channel. Picture quality problems on a single channel or on all channels may be caused by the TV station signal (antenna) or the cable signal source.
  3. Make sure that the image quality issue is not coming from your source signal.
    For example: if the image quality issues occur while viewing TV, switch the source to a DVD player to see if the image quality problems go away.
    If selecting a different input source (using the remote control) causes the problem to go away, troubleshoot the source device causing the problem - adjust aerial antennas, call the cable company for assistance, and .
    If a picture quality problem occurs on all sources, the TV or its settings may be the cause of the problem. NOTE: Higher resolution TVs will make it much easier to view signal problems coming from source signals - especially TV signals. For example, if your TV cable company experiences heavy load on their system, you may be able to detect small miscolored squares that briefly scatter across the screen (macro-blocking). On a smaller standard TV, this type of quality problem is much less noticeable on a standard TV, but can become very annoying when viewed with greater detail.
  4. Open OSD to adjust the picture:
    Press the Menu button to open the OSD. Select the Picture menu and adjust the image as needed. 
    If you cannot adjust the TV to fix the problem, reset the settings from the OSD to see if the problem goes away.
  5. Unplug the TV from its power source. With the power cord unplugged, press and hold the power button for five seconds. Turn on the TV. If the image quality problems still exists across all types of signal sources, the TV should be serviced.

If this dosent solve your problem, letus know and we will find another solution,

Tv picture wont turn on


Press the menu button if the menu does not come up then the issue is with the tv. If the menu does come up , try a second source such as a dvd player or a game system. you may need to change the channel on the tv or the input to get video and sound.

Convergence off Olevia Lt23 after replacing capacitors


Hi marlene
I assume that your friend replaced those capacitors because the tv was dead(no power).
And as far as i can see , your tv doesn`t have a usb port, just a service port that is not user friendly.
If you can give me a full description of what the picture looks like it would be very helpful for me to assist you.
But first go to the "screen"function menu and see if you can adjust the screen ratio.
Also if you can tell me what symptoms your tv had before any repair was made.

Make sure your cable box is on and on a channel that you normally watch so that we know there is video being transmitted to the TV,then useing the remote that came with the TV press the button that is labeled " input" or " source" multiple times until you see a picture back on your TV screen. Good luck and Happy Holidays!

Hi i have a olevia model 532 B12 television out of my trailer and i need a stand for it how do i get one ???


Hi

The first option would be to contact Oevia direct nad see if they can supply you with one however this may be quite expensive and difficult to do.

The second option would be to buy any VESA standard mount for your TV and use this option, You can check if your TV takes this type of mount by looking on the back, there will be 4 holes around 5" apart where the mount will bolt into, you can get either cantilever wall mounts or if you look on ebay or the likes of you can usualy find secondhand VESA mounts for sale.

Hope this helps

OLEVIA 532-B12 need video card


The electronics are known to go bad with these TV's, and I'm looking to buy someone's junk TV that has a good screen, rather than have to throw it out.   
(So if anyone is out there with a 532-B12 that isn't working, send me a message!)

If it's a simple replacable part, it might be worth fixing - however I know sadly that parts are nearly impossible to get for these TV's, and the manufacturer is virtually impossible to contact. I think that Sears repair person might be making it sound a little more modular than it really is.  If he's talking about replacing the mainboard of the TV (which IS a video board), that's basically "the guts" of the TV, and not a readily available part like a power cord, back side connectors.
If you DO manage to contact anyone (manufacturer or otherwise) who can source or supply parts, PLEASE do let me know - it's been nearly impossible for me, and I want to replace my cracked screen in my TV.
If you can't, please let me know - I'll gladly give you a few bucks at least to salvage the screen from your TV, to transplant into mine, rather than turning it into junk on your curb.
