Every once in a while I search for Olevia 747i and 265 on ebay and craigslist. Nice sets!
Panasonic AX-200u / Optoma Graywolf 92" / Draper Luma 92"
Samsung 51F8500 Plasma / Vizio M422i LCD / Vizio GV42LF LCD / Vizio VP322 Plasma
Sony S790 BD / Panasonic BDT500 BD / Sony S1000ES BD / Roku 2 XS & Roku 2 (Ver. 3)
Oppo 983H Anchor Bay VRS / Panasonic S97 Faroudja Genesis / Oppo 970HD MediaTek
Aiwa MX100 Multi-region VCR / JVC S7600 S-VHS
I have one of each of those sets. They are both still very fine sets. The 747i has one stuck green subpixel now:mad:, but I can't see it from viewing distance:D. They are both still really heavy, but they have only been moved once since I owned them. The last of the 265's that I know of sold at retail by Microcenter for ~$1,300 (what a steal) !
Thanks in advance! Glad to see this forum still has a little life. Been following it from page 1.
If you're plan is to keep it and wait til its all the way dead, just leave it up. When the repair man comes out and looks at it, he's gonna make a call. Or say I'll get back to you. When he gets off that call or gets back to you, he's gonna say there's no parts for that TV. and you're extended warranty company will be issuing a check for your full amount and the TV is yours to dispose of.
Also, double check with repair company they initially set you up with. If they have sent you some one from over 100 miles away when there's 2 places in town that are certified. Demand to use the company close.

I have found a solution to the scrambled / freezing picture for the 65" Olevia LCD T11. At the recommendation of 3D electronics in plano TX, I installed a 200mm fan on the back cover with the air blowing directly on the CPU of the main / video card. I had to cut a whole in the back cover to mount the fan and actually left the bottom panel off to let more air flow. There are some spare 12v terminals on the second power board on board furthest from the main board. I cut the whole out with a jigsaw and had to extend the power wire due to the length required.
anyone need parts? just email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org
i'm in raleigh if anyone is close by....
I recently got my hands on a Olevia 265. The TV was working perfectly but it seems something happened during the transport maybe?.
Problem is: TV turns on but it just doesn't get any signal. I connected HDMI and the RCA cables but it just says no signal. I noticed that the TV freezes when Im changing the input and I change it to one where there is something connected. It doesn't work until I disconnect it and I turnoff then on the TV.
Any ideas of what if could be?
Edit: I forgot to mention that I already went through the menu to reset it to factory settings. It resets and restarts but then it seems to freeze. After a while it asks to select a language.
Also, there seem to be red LEDs on the back. They are only on the left of the TV (if seen from the back... they are where all the video connections are) Those are the only green and red that are lit up.
Hi, I've been searching the internet for firmware for a 265t12 that was just handed down to me. Literally have searched for days. Would you be as so kind to forward me the link you have for the firmware? I would really appreciate it.
Since I wrote that post, I found the base, and it does weigh a ton. I have a horizontal piece that would rest on the stand, plus a vertical piece that would fit into the horizontal piece, and attach to the TV. I have just those two pieces, nothing else. So, at a minimum, I need the hardware, plus any other parts I am missing. I would like to purchase that stuff, if you are willing to sell it.
If you have the complete ' kit' and would consider selling everything except what I already have, please quote me a price. Thank you.
It's been a while and I think my 265T is finally on its last leg. Turned it on today and no sound coming from the TV at all. Picture still looks great but no sound, not on mute and I chose HDMI regular, but the peculiar thing is that every time I try to choose Speaker on in the audio menu it flashes but when I return it is back in the off position, it refuses to stay in the ON slot....anybody have any bright, amazing, life saving ideas. I tried doing a factory reset, and input reset, unplugged it for 2 hours, nothing seems to work. I might try a firmware update, but I don't remember if I did one ever. Please help if you can....was really hoping to hold out until the 4ks were reasonably priced. Thanks ALL.....
now I am getting a knocking sound 15 mins after the TV is on and. The TV is on mute or no sound, but I'm not sure if the knocking is coming from the speakers or from the back of the TV. It is very bizarre. Check out the video. (Please excuse the children's video) Anybody have any ideas on a fix????
err looks like I can't upload videos...lets see if this link works.
