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?

Re: Olevia 27 " picture delayed
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.

Using the self-timer Use the self-timer when you want to be included in a picture, or to ensure a steady Shutter button press. Place the camera on a tripod or flat surface. 1 In any picture-taking mode, press the Info button to turn on the shortcut icons. 2 Press to highlight the self-timer icon. Press to choose a setting: 10 seconds- A picture is taken after a 10-second delay (so you have time to get into the scene). 2 seconds- A picture is taken after a 2-second delay (for a steady, shutter release on a tripod). 2 shot- The first picture is taken after a 10-second delay. A second picture is taken 8 seconds later. 3 Compose the scene. Press the Shutter button halfway, then completely down. The camera takes the picture/pictures after the delay. Use the same procedure to take a 2- or 10-second self-timer video, but press the Shutter button completely down.
1 In any Still mode, tap Settings to open the Settings panel. 2 Tap Self-Timer/Burst repeatedly, until the desired Self-timer icon appears at the bottom of the LCD: 10 seconds—A picture is taken after a 10-second delay (so you have time to get into the scene). 2 seconds—A picture is taken after a 2-second delay (for a steady, auto-shutter release on a tripod). 2 shot—The first picture is taken after a 10-second delay. A second picture is taken 8 seconds later. 3 Compose the scene. Press the Shutter button halfway, then completely down. The camera takes the picture/pictures after the delay.
Your power supply is going south, I have an old sony with the same problem. The voltage level drops and does not have enough 'kick' to start. It will work better when it is warm. The module will need to be replaced.
