Question about Olevia LT32HVM 32 in. LCD Television
My Olevia TV is about 1 yr old. Recently when I turn it on (using the remote), there is about a 15 - 20 second delay before anything happens - Picture and audio. The delay is new, as it has always powered up almost immediately. Once it comes on, the picture and sound is find. Any ideas?
Since I have noted many problems which can only be related to the power supply in this set, I'm afraid it may worsen and finally fail.
Modern power supplies are fairly complex devices (far more than a transformer and a few diodes) and are fussy about certain components (electrolytic capacitors) they require.
There was a flood of defective parts, failing because of a counterfeit electrolyte made in . . . China, of course.
There are literally millions of parts waiting to fail, some already installed, many more in the pipeline.
It will be years before they are all replaced and sorting them out is impossible since they do not externally differ from good parts.
Since they do not show up until they have been in operation for some (unknown) time, otherwise reliable manufacturers are suffering along with consumers.
