Question about Syntax-Brillian Olevia 242TFHD 42 in. LCD TV

1 Answer

Standby light is on,but my olevia tv will not turn on.

I've tried the method where you unplug the set for 30 minutes,then hold the power button in for 10 seconds,then plug in and that still didn't work. The reset button on the back of the set was of no help either. When I hit the on-off button the standby light will blink off and on every 5 seconds as if it is in standby. Is there any other way to reset this 42" Olevia? Thanks for your help.

    Good news,bad news. Here's what fixed it: I unplugged the set and left it unplugged overnight. The next day I pushed the on-off button on the front of the set 10 times. Then I flipped the reset button on the back of the set 10 times. Then I plugged it back in. Then I used the on-off button on the remote to turn it back on, and it worked. That is the good news. The bad news is now the wife won't let me buy that 70" Samsung I wanted. Thanks again to the individual who suggested using this technique to get the set to working again.

No, someone will need to open set and check voltages etc and also look at power board to see if any puffed up bad caps like these:

SOURCE: Olevia 42 inch Flat Panel has power supply

What did you try so far? The main power supply MUST have at least the 5V standby supply section working. This 5v is used by the main control board to send out the command to turn on the main power supply section which will power up the rest of the TV circuits when the power switch is activated either by the power button of remote or on the TV powern button. Look for this 5v first.

You either have a problem with your power supply board or main board. I would start with having the power supply fuse checked as well as the power supply board!

Olevia 42"


Olevia LCD 542I - Had the same issue for a week until the tv would not turn on anymore, after several attempts it came back on. A few days later the tv turned off then only the standby light was on, then lost the standby light as well. After researching the problem it could be in two areas, either the power supply or main board. Removed the back and found the power supply had several capacitors that were bulging on the top and appeared the fluid was leaking, all signs of a failed part, removed the PS and replaced four capacitorst that had shown some issues. If you can removed the PS and check for a number on the board, mine was FSP271-4F02, and find someone who has some electronic circuit capablilty, the issue may be resolved at a fraction on the cost of a new power supply.
