OLEVIA 32" 2 Series LCD HDTV (232V) - Page 2

post #31 of 1473
The LCD was only hooked up from the cable box to the lcd using the hdmi cable. I was only able to get audio using the rca outs of my cable box.

No other cable. Straight HDMI from cable box to hdmi input on LCD. I tested the cable out and it does work on another lcd. I was wondering if any one has tried to use the hdmi input on the 232v?

So what is the verdict on this TV? I might be getting one tomorrow, but I plan on using it for everything, including xbox 360. Did VGA cables solve the problem? I already have a vga cable for my 360, but I don't want to buy a tv that has unexplainable problems. Anyone have a final verdict of what is going on with the green tint?

No idea right now.
But someone said the new exchanged one works fine.
Just wonder what firmware version he has.
If it's different, maybe TV could get fixed.

Any one had any issues with the hdmi input on the new 232v? The video was fine, but I only got the rca stereo audio to work. No audio came alonng with the hdmi cable. Help!!!!!!!!!!
post #36 of 1473
I played xbox360 on mine and i have no green tint, no lag, no nothing. Just an image you expect from such a low cost LCD. HD Channels looks really really nice. But when playing video games the The screen looks washed out compared to my Panasonic HDTV. But overall a really nice set. Didn't expect even this much good from it for 475.....

HDMI straight from calbe box to LCD. Video only through HDMi.

Hi all, I bought this TV on black Friday after standing in line for 8 hours and i must tell you the TV is beautiful. I have my PC connected via VGA at 1360 x 768 and the picture is very clear, crisp and sharp.
But i have a problem i have a ps2 connected via composite cables to my Olevia 232v. When i connect my ps2 via composite AV cables (have not tried component yet, don't have one), the ps2 does not display full screen the screen is smaller and there are black areas all around the screen. It's like i need it stretched or something. I know it is some minor setting but could anyone help me out with that?

I will post some pictures but i just registered so i guess i need at least 5 posts.

Thanks
Harry

Harry - did you try hitting the aspect button on the remote? Anyone figure out the solution to the green tint. I have it as well when connecting via component cables. I have to change my DTV box to output at 480p for the color to look normal.

Yeah str8ace it is set to full screen i have tried every aspect ratio to no avail i even messed around with the playstation 2 system settings but nothing happened.

Anyone own a ps2 and this tv?
post #41 of 1473
my ps2 works fine (but looks like trash) using the composite cables. ive tried emailing olevia still havent got a response about the green tint issue for the component cables. ill post as soon as i get a response.
post #42 of 1473
Another user here with green tint on the component. Firmware version:
A33-5.A19.A10.A01.A21
post #43 of 1473
harrybash what kind of video card do you have cause when i tried to hook my pc up to the tv, it wont let me change the resolution so im thinking it might be my video card. the resolution jus staays at 800x600. any thoughts on this?

P.S - i tried connecting my ps2 with compnent cables and it works fine
post #44 of 1473
alchaau8, I have a ATI X1300 on my machine. Can you please tell me your TV settings so i can fabricate them on my set maybe i have something wrong. Also I have tried every aspect ratio using the on screen TV menu and the system settings for the PS2 but the biggest screen i get is when it is on Full Screen, i can use the zoom 1 and zoom 2 options on the TV but then the image gets stretched too much vertically and horizontally i still have black edges. Could it be a result of having an old PS2? I don't think that is the problem because i had a PS2 since launch which i gave away to my sister and it works perfectly on our Sony 42" Wega (not an LCD just flat screen). Is anyone else having this problem? Please someone help.

P.S: I also bought a pair of official $24 Component cables just to see, which improved the image quality a lot but the screen size remained the same.

P.S.S: For you people who are getting a green tint, when i tried component i did not get anything like that. The picture was clearer, sharper and way better than composite cables. I will post my firmware version when i get home from work after 9 hours so stay tuned if anyone needs to know.

We would appreciate it Harry. IT is so frustrating to have such an otherwise nice TV ( the digital TV tuner (QAM?) produces excellent HD pictures).

I do NOT have a green tint.
Firmware version: A33-5.A19.A10.A01.A19

Seems like the last number may determine this issue
post #47 of 1473
Interesting - a bit older firmware, and no issue. THank you for your info Banthur. I am going to try to get a hold of Olevia, and see what they might say. Perhaps i can get the "older" firmware and give my TV a flash (or a newer firmware and fix it as well).
post #48 of 1473
Olevia TSR told me that if my 232v had a green tint, it was because it has a failing motherboard. The 232v shouldn't have that issue he said. Earlier Olevia models from year past had that problem. But it was fixed for the 232v and newer models.

If there is a green tint. You should get it replaced I think. There is no firmware upgrade.

I'm being sent a new one... but my motherboard died all together. Tv wasn't starting up after initially working for 40 hours.
post #49 of 1473
I don't know if i believe that. The rest of the TV is fine, why would one thing like this indicate that a failure is happening?

Either way, i guess if i must, i may try to replace it. But i still want to talk to a TSR myself,

I have 3 of the Olevia 232V and they all exibit the same green tint for any resolution above 480. strange that all 3 motherboards would be bad unless i got a bad batch.

Not too much on at 1120am on a tuesday though
post #52 of 1473
I agree str8ace. Would you mind posting your firmware version(s) for us, if you could? And the same for you steveskg? The more info we can get about this, the faster we can get a solution.
post #53 of 1473
Also: would anyone be willing to post a shot of the green tint issue ( as in, just how bad is it)?
post #54 of 1473
Hey guys I know the green tint is a bigger problem for you guys right now, but can anyone please, please tell me there screen settings (anything related to size and aspect ratio) so i can set up my TV in the same way. I have tried everything and still my TV shows black edges when i hook up my PS2. I will go home and hook up a dvd player just to see if it does that with other inputs then my PS2, this will isolate the problem to one piece of hardware.

Any help will be appreciated thanx.
post #55 of 1473
Okie guys the verdict is in, I called my sister at home to get me the firmware version. I have the answer to your green tint problem. It looks like the Olevia TSR was right looks like a bad motherboard. Because lo and behold my firmware version is:

A33-5.A19-A10.A01.A21 which is the same as Divine_Madcat's

So i guess replacement is the only option.
Now can anyone please tell me their screen settings for the Playstation 2.

Thank You

The firmware that is not exhibiting the green tint is Firmware version: A33-5.A19.A10.A01.A19

so far, 2 A21 have the green tint...right? I will check my firmware when i get home today.
post #57 of 1473
No str8ace i have the same firmware version as Divine_Madcat which is A33-5.A19.A10.A01.A21 but he has the green tint problem and i do not. So it is a motherboard or some hardware issue specific to your sets.
post #58 of 1473
Harry - have you tried component with a source higher than 480i (i don't know what the PS2 will output to, so...)? Supposedly, the tint problem only comes then...

Hmmm Divine_Madcat that is a good question and the answer is no. I know the ps2 outputs at 480i but i do not have any other source that outputs at something better than that. But still i do not think that would be a problem, since our friend
Mr. nachojoe is having green tint issues with his ps2 according to his post earlier in response to my PS2 problem which i have not yet been able to solve.
If he can shed some light on that it would clear everything up.

ah, i misunderstood...sorry...i thought you had the green tint issue as well... i guess i will take mine back to a different circuit city then the one i bought from and will see if that fixes it.
