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.

Blue light comes on but tv won t turn on no picture or sound nothing works


The blue light merely indicates power is getting to your TV. The internal power supply may have failed.

Tv has power in stand by mode but no power or blue led light when trying to turn on. it seems the tv has no power


Unplug the T.V. and hold the power button down for 30-60 seconds. Plug the T.V. back in and try powering on. If it still doesn't power on then you may need a firmware update, or something on the board has gone bad such as the power supply or capacitors. You can take off the back of the T.V. and look for any swollen capacitors on the board and see if the power supply looks ok.

When I plug it in the red remote stand-by light comes on when I push the power button on the remote the red light blinks then goes off but there is no picture or sound?


This happens because the power source has failed. What has caused the failure can be found only by testing it - but my guess, based on how it behaves, is that the high tension for the panel is faulty: the filtering capacitors have failed and fried the rectifier.

Powers off by itself


You need a firmware upgrade that has to be done by a tech onsite. I've done many of them. 12 Blue blinks is a TVGuide download trouble and doesn't hurt the set but a firmware update should solve it. If it occurs again after that you need the Main Assy replaced but make sure the firmware is updated on that also.
Problem will go away
Hope this helps

It is the capacitor. It is really easy to fix, and it will cost you about $4. The capacitor is on the power board and it looks like a small battery. The bad capacitor will have a small bulge on the top, the good ones will be flat on top. You can buy them at Radio Shack. Just look on the side of the capacitor to see which one you will need. If you need any further info I would by glad to help. I have a 40in polaroid that this happened to and it works like a dream now.
