Question about Olevia LT37HVS 37 in. LCD HDTV
My TV will play fine for 10-20 min. after that the screen will go blank. Sometimes the screen will light up but no picture. I have no problems with the sound. When I unplug the power cord for a few min. and plug it back in the TV works for a few min. and does the same thing over again. The TV is only about five months old. None of the vents are blocked and nothing has gotten inside of it, and I have always kept it pluged into a surge protector. I have been the only owner of this TV. Please help if you can, and thanks for any advice...
screen looses picture
LOSS OF PICTURE AFTER 10-15 MINUTES. TURN SET OFF AND ON,PICTURE OK FOR 3-5 MINUTES THEN GOES BLACK. SOUND OK. TRIED THE FLASH LIGHT TEST AND SHAZAM, I SEE GHOSTING. SET IS 1.5 YRS. OLD. FROM EVERYTHING I HAVE READ IT SOUNDS LIKE A BACK LIGHT PROBLEM. ANY SOLUTIONS?
Yes your inverter is bad, I have the same problem my set is about 1 and 1/4 years old. Because Olevia makes a terrible product there inverters are attached directly on to the panel, which means they will only sell the inverter along with the panel i.e $700+ to replace + $100 dollars labor if u don't know how to fix it ur self. I am currently searching to find the manufacture that makes the inverters because olevia will not disclose that information. I believe it is darfon, if so the inverter should cost about $150-200 depending. If you dont believe you can fix it ur self ur best bet is try and sell the set for scrap take ur $100 or so dollar and buy a quality product! Oh and dont call there support they will tell 10 different things before u find out this long for seen truth!

Just posting what worked for me:
I had this problem on my 42" Philips. Just got it yesterday and worked fine on the tv stand. As soon as I mounted the TV to the wall via wall mount system, I had the exact same issue you did. Figured it out today.
The wall mount was putting pressure against the center of the back of the tv (tv set had a slightly rounded back plate, and the mount was a flat plate). As soon as I put spacers (part of the wall mount hardware set) between the wall mount braket and the tv so there was no contact except at the mounting holes, the tv worked fine.
My theory is the pressure pushed the tv back plate against some board components which caused them to overheat (no air flow); or put pressure on internal connectors. I dont know.
Hope this helps, may not apply to your situation.

SOURCE: TV SCREEN GOES BLANK
Re-program your CTV and set the timer OFF, after a while if the problem goes the same. you may refer to qualified technician.. for further check-up of the unit. it will posibble in the primary regulator section/hot section.. or leak spare parts at the supply section.
