Olevia power problem

Just wondering where this hidden mini USB can be found. I took a look behind the TV and could not find it, do I have to unscrew an panel?

I did notice there is another solution where you have to switch out a power board, have you tried this?

Does it have a USB port to connect a Ruko stick? If not, how can I connect it?


The KDF-42WE655 does not have a USB port. The current Roku sticks plug into the HDMI port on the TV. You will need to use the power adapter that came with the unit. Plug the USB cord (mini or micro USB) into the back (or side) of the Roku Stick and then plug the power adapter into a nearby power outlet. (It's a 5V 1A DC power adapter.) Roku sells this adapter separately on their Accessories page: https://www.roku.com/accessories . It's ~$10. If you have mounted your TV such that the power outlet is hidden behind the TV, you'll get to the outlet or use another nearby outlet. (Make sure to avoid a tripping hazard if you use an extension cord or power strip to increase the number of available outlets.)

I hope this helps.

Firmware update Failed


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.

Power on problem for My Syntax Olevia LCD TV 23"


I have a 24" Olevia LCD TV. Same symptoms (Stdby LED is on, press power and it flashes off, then back on). The USB cable to the Service Port also worked. But being of sound technical mind, I figured this means that the PC is supplying the +5v to the circuit. What I did was disassebled the TV, carefully disconnected all the cables, and opened it up to reveal the circuitry. I looked over the circuit and noticed the 1000uf/16v capacitor at position CS21 was failed and bulging. I removed the cap, tested it and verified that it was indeed failed. I went to a local Radio Shack and picked up a 1000uf/35v electrolytic, after all, the value is what mainly matters as long as it's not lower voltage than the original. I replaced the new CS21 capacitor back in the circuit (it is polarity sensitive, so pay attention to what the original mounting position is). I reassembled the TV and Viola! Works! No need for the USB cable to the Service Port!

I hope this helps someone!

Power issue with Olevia LT23


I think this model has a timer on it, it seems to go when the warranty runs out, not proven but Mine went out about a month ago. My only fix is to plug my tv (via the service port which is COVERED) to the usb port on my computer using my BlackBerry usb cable, in other words the Mini USB. Seemingly I must be logged on to do so and wait for the Chime form my pc, a balloon will pop up for new hardware not recognized (vista) then press the power button and then it turns on, unplug the usb cable and make sure the source is set to tv / video or else it will power back off and you will have to start all over. Theres NOT A PERMANENT fix yet but this is what I do every time I want to use the TV, I have a laptop so I use it as the Monitor just to watch movies. If you have a desktop I recommend keeping the cable handy BUT DO NOT LEAVE THE USB CABLE IN FOR LONG USES. THE SERVICE PORT IS COVERED FOR A REASON!!!

Olevia LT23 23in. LCD/TV


I had the same prob, but found out that the problem with the Olevia lcd tv's on most models not powering up is because of failure of capacitors on the power supply board that I do believe is due to excessive heat and lack of ventilation.

I took the tv apart and got access to the main board and just by looking at the capacitors I could tell which one were the bad ones..

I will show some pics that I borrowed during my repair, hope it helps as reference as it did to me.

I replaced the bad caps with new ones that I bought at a computer parts store.

Now I got my lcd tv back ON but this time I added a internal cooling fan for better air flow that will reduce this malfunction from happening again.

Hope this helps.
