Question about Olevia LT27HVX 27 in. LCD Television

1 Answer

Syntax/olevia lt26hvx constant power cycling. The unit will turn itself on and off without input from the user, and no intervention by the user will stop the cycling...only pulling the power cord will. I have replaced the circuit board that the power button is located on, but this did not solve the issue.

    However, can you explain why the tv WILL remain powered on when I disconnect the ic board that holds the power button? I can disconnect this board during the power cycle, and with careful timing the tv will stay on and functional.

    Thank You

The fault is not related to any button or remote control problem. There is some short inside the secondary voltage section of the power supply section inside your Olevia. Normally, if the inverter board, that generates high voltage of the CCFL lamps used inside, to generate backlight will get winding short inside it in between. If so, when set's power supply sections [SMPS] tries to start up, and if it will get any sign of short, the main system control IC will send a stop signal to stop the power switching section. After that, when it has been done, the power supply section again tries to start, detects short, and shut down again. This process is going on now with your Tv. The high voltage inverter section is very dangerous to one who doesn't have any knoledge in electronics. If there is an opwn circuit inside the inverter, it will arc to the surroundings.
In fact, your set's trouble is not a user repairable one. If you have enough knoledge in electronics, and have all the measuring equipments, just start from this section. LCD power supply, all types and all company's are very sensitive to any short circuit, and you must be well experienced to detect the short. If you are able to do, have confidence and more patience, proceed. Otherwise get help from any experience service technician you trust. OK.

    The board contain the digital IC that detects short circuit, a logic IC, working as ome part of main system IC. When you disconnect the board, there will be no stop signal send to the power supply board as short indicatin. Doing this will surely damage other components, and the fault will turn more complicated.

How do you remove PARENTAL CONTROLS on Olevia Syntax LT26HVX when you don't have the remote? Power surge caused problem.

You need the remote, only way. You can most likely get the OEM remote or one that will work like the OEM from this website 1 800 Remotes

NO REMOTE for Olevia Syntax LT26HVX.

If you wish to buy its original remote control, contact the authorized service center, or authorized dealer to your device brand.
To select a proper universal remote control, you should know about the number of digits to its set-up codes. There are 3 digit, 4 digit, 5 digit, 2 digit and even single digit codes, to some brand devices. After confirming this, check the sites linked here. Both the sites have set-up code list and set-up procedure to many popular brand remote controls. Check which brand remote control has set-up code/s to your device brand, and buy that one according to availability? Brand name of the remote control isn't a matter, but it should have set-up codes in its code list, to the device you have.
Please note: Every new universal remote control will have set-up code list, and set-up procedure along with its user manual. Never accept a remote control, that hasn't both of this. If you see the site by "MOSAIC" view, will make surf easier.
Without a remote control, you can't unlock parential lock.

I have a Syntax Olevia 532-b12 and ironically, the blue light is on when power is off (and turns off when the power is on...) I assume it's the same for the 537H

Need a Power supply for a LT26HVX Olevia LCD

That is because no one knows how to troubleshoot to the component level anymore in this "lowest repairable unit" world we live in! Throw it away and buy a well know TV set. Another item for the land fill....Shame! Sorry as it is, just a shame.
