Local shop can easily replace the caps in lees than an hour ($80 an hour rate) but not likely taht he will do it since he would want to troubleshoot the problem first because he maybe afraid that replacing the caps may not solve the problem unless you will agree to have him putting in the new caps without any warranty that it will fix the problem. Or you can try to locate the new power supply module instead.

Crack screen


If your screen is cracked, replacement is the only cost effective way to go. The replacement screen will cost more than a new unit.
I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue.

I have a problem with my olevia tv, i turn on and watch tv and in few minutes its turn off, some peop le tell me that is the power supply module, thats true???


Yes, it can be, that is the first place to look and inspect, it can be bad DC filter caps, cold solder joints, etc. It can also be the main logic board, failing backlight inverter board taht draws too much current after warm up and causes the power supply to go into shutdown mode, that is why you need to check the voltages before and after the problem.

I have a 23" lcd model olevia 323 S-11 which doesnt power on. It's plugged in and the hard switch at the back is on, the red power indicator light is on....but no picture...no sound...no anything! What...


Hi. I am having the same problem with the same model TV. If I hold my finger on the power button, the power light will unlight for a second, then come back on. On occasion it tries to start and the power light will stay off and it has to be power cycled for the light to come back on. After about 50 attempts, the tv will come on. I took it apart today and looked into the power supply. There are 5 obviously bad electrolitic capacitors and one suspect. There are a total of 13 of these caps and since these caps have a reputation of going bad and causing this problem, I'm replacing all of them. Likely this will solve the problem. (I hope). The bulging caps are the only ones that are truly bad, but they're all going to be replaced considering the low cost of the parts. Hope this helps.

Olevia LT26HVX turns on with blue screen then blanks out


seems like the main-board is having some issues.. the tv's main-board will have to be replace or repair..

Since the manuf. when out of buss.. the only way to get that fix is thru the 3rd party repair center called Amergence Technology in witch they service all Olevia Televisions..

There number is 866-965-3842 im sure they could give you an estimate on the repair cost for you.
