I have the Olevia 65TFHD and after 13 months the picture freezes as soon as I turn it on everytime. The repair guy said I need a replacement board that has the input sources. We cant find the part anywhere... Because Olevia has gone out of Business, my credit card will cover with the extended warranty and refund my purchase price ... However, they want a copy of the original Olevia warranty which I do not have anymore. Does anyone have a copy of the Olevia one year warranty that I can get a copy of ??? Thanks for your help !!!

Sorry, can't help you on the warranty copy. Just read on the previous forum page 53 and you should easily find where to buy the replacement board and also pics of it. Murphyagain was nice enough to give direct links to the mainboard that you are looking for and the power supply if you find that it is what you need. The board and power supply are in stock.

OK... So let me verify to make sure I understand.... My 265TFHD T-11 stopped working a few days ago.... When I turn it on I see the Olevia pic and the screen lights up.... It will work fine for a few seconds and then the picture freezes... the sound keeps going but I cant use any functions on the tv... although the power button on the remote will still turn it off and on... if I turn it off and on it might work again for a few minutes then picture freezes again... now most of the time I turn it on and get a rainbow scrambled picture ... but the Olevia pic still fires up fine and lights up..... it doesnt matter what input i use ..it all has the same result... The strange thing is if I unplug ALL inputs then the tv operates fine.. i can cycle through the menu and change settings as long as there is no input connected to the tv at all..... Am i correct in assuming that this is a problem with the "main board" you guys are refering too ???? All my repair guy told me was that it was the board that controls all the inputs.... Please help so i can get my 200 lbs. paperweight working again... Thanks !!!

All the video inputs are physically connected to the main board. Odds are, your repair guy thinks it is the main board. Why don't you call him and ask?
Perhaps tell him that your credit card company wants to know.

Can you access the service menu? If you can, you might try to reload the firmware, to make sure the problem is not just a gigantic software snafu...
post #1597 of 1760
He showed me the board on the back of the tv that has all the input connections on it... He called it a signal board... but it looks like (from previous posts on here) that it is the called the mainboard.. I can access the menu only if i unplug all video sources to the tv.... its weird... if anything is connected it freezes up.... i will have to go back and locate the installation software..... then i will try that first... Thanks for your help.......
If anyone has a link for the proper software download please post it again.... thanks everyone.

although i noticed something about audio before, i just realized that when video input is HDMI, the audio menu is hdmi external or internal, but when in tuner, its something like speakers on or off.

why this was interesting is because i was trying to figure out how to easily make the change with a harmony remote, but i guess you don't have to depending on the input. i really hadn't used this for tv, but i figured i would enable tv just in case.

i wonder how much of the other inputs setting are separate depending on the video or audio.
post #1600 of 1760
There is a reset button on the mainboard just below the black heat shrink. Hope that helps you. I think that reset the tv to factory setting.
post #1601 of 1760
Can You give me a better description of where the reset button is ?? I am looking at the mainboard now and and do not see a reset button. Thanks
post #1602 of 1760
When Audio is output from a 5.1 OTA or cable box it only comes out in stereo even from the Optical, but when the audio comes into the TV via a HDMI(like the PS3) and is 5.1, I wonder if the Optical would output 5.1? My guess is it won't but I've never tried to verify with a HDMI audio input.

perhaps there needs to be a special configuration for the 5.1 output. otherwise it would have made sense to just have stereo out instead of spdif.

The reset button is the little black button just below the bottom left corner of the large heat sink at the top of the mainboard. It may not help anything but it may be worth a try. I have never pressed it myself.

At least you can buy a new board if you have to just to try it for under $200. You can always sell it on ebay and cut your losses if it doesn't fix it. I looked for weeks before I found one to buy. Then MurphyAgain found someone that stocks them. He must be using a different google than me

post #1605 of 1760
Thanks... Found the reset button and it did reset it and it worked for about 2 minutes and then the picture started freezing again... I ordered the MainBoard from that company but they said they only have non-working ones in stock... So it will take them about a week to fix and send it. I will post as soon as I get the new (fixed) MainBoard installed.
post #1606 of 1760
I was watching "The Proposal" DVD last night. There's one scene where the father is watching TV and I think it's the Olevia 65" tv. Just found that amusing.

They are offering one year warranty through Microcenter on these sets. This is not a great price, but they are subject to reduction or may be available for a lower price if you offer less.

I purchased a 747i refurb from Microcenter Houston, in July ($599.99 + Tax). It was like new with less than 80 hours per the service menu. The 265's MAY be similar in condition, or not. At that time I talked to a Microcenter Houston TV service technician, who said that Microcenter had purchased spare parts to service all the Olevia sets they were selling/guaranteeing. So, I conclude that they have parts for the 265.

Thus, WE may be able to get Microcenter to service our 265's. If you have a Microcenter anywhere close, it would be worth a phone call to find out...

Also 2 available at Twin Cities/St. Louis Park, Minnesota store. Out of stock at all other stores.

Just checked, and the price for the refurbed 265T FHD has been cut to $1,499.99. There are still 2 in stock at Kansas City/Overland Park and still 2 in stock at Twin Cities/St. Louis Park, Minnesota stores. ALSO THEY NOW SHOW 3 IN STOCK AT THE BELTWAY/ROCKVILLE MD. STORE!! (All other stores still show Out Of Stock). Anyone need a bunch of parts??? If I didn't already have 1 , I would probably be leaving for Kansas City. Anyone else???

These are all available for 18 minute pickup... Meaning you can order by phone or on line and they will NOT charge your credit card and will hold your purchase for up to 3 days awaiting your payment and in store pickup.
post #1609 of 1760
Wow.

They already went thru 85 units.
Now they have only 15 cores in stock. http://www.moduslinkptstvboards.com

If I where this company I would ask for a return core for a small deduction on the main purchase.

I will say all of the units I know that have been purchased from them are all working .They where Wrapped great and turnaround time was excellent.

Lets hope the keep up the great work.

Anyone who is interested in buying one of these TVs would be advised to not dally. When this deal hits one of the deal sites like fatwallet or slickdeals, they will probably go pretty fast.

The last firmware is 265TFHD_V63.7.7A17
This is probably the version you have. Check it in the menu...setup...firmware version.

I updated to this version of the firmware on ~ Aug 11, 2008...Don't know what, if anything, it did, nor what it was supposed to do. There were no release notes with this firmware.

With all that said, if I had a do over on this exercise, I would not bother to do it again. However, you should probably download a copy of this firmware, just in case. Link to the firmware download is at Post #1569 of this thread, and instructions on how to install it are at Post #165 and Post #171 also in this thread.

I just checked, and the 265T FHD refurbs are no longer listed under any of the three stores. It is almost like they never existed. Usually, they will still list an out of stock item for a time as Out of Stock, but the 265's are just totally unlocated. I doubt they all sold out, but what happened to them all is ???

Do you still have the Olevia? I may be interested in purchasing it if you do. Thank you.

I am searching for an Olevia 65 with a broken screen.
post #1617 of 1760
Hello everyone,

I want to begin by saying that I read most of the threads here and just want to verify what I might need for my problem.

I have the T11 model which works great when it wants to. Sometimes when I turn the TV on, I see the white Olevia screen and then nothing. No picture, no "no signal" displayed, nothing works at all.

I then turn the TV off, pull off the power cord, and HDMI cords (leaving nothing attached to the TV), and I then hit the power button on the TV several times. Once I replug everything, the TV will turn on and function just fine... until I turn it off and on again!

I ordered a new Mainboard from moduslinkptstvboards as fast as I can since I saw they only had one left. My question though is, should I also get the power supply boards? Also, does my problem seem to be the mainboard in the first place?

Thanks for the help!

I think the replacement mainboard is probably the way to go. Especially since you can disconnect your components and get it to work sometimes. All of your components plug into the mainboard. Plus you can replace the mainboard without taking the whole back off the TV. You should only have to remove the panel on the left side that covers it. I am speaking from experience. To get to the power supplies you will have to remove the entire back panel of the TV with 40+ screws and the speakers.

I would not spend the money on the power supplies unless the mainboard didn't fix it. I am far from an expert but I do know if you disconnect either of the power supplies the TV will not power on properly at all so you would never see the "olevia" screen. That would lead me to believe that they are working fine in your case. If you disconnect the left Power supply the TV will click as if turning on but instantly go back to standby mode (the blue light on the front clicks off then on again). If you disconnect the right one it won't even attempt to power on. I think they are good since yours isn't doing either of these things.

If you take the panel off that covers the mainboard you can look at it and see what happens. In my case there were 9 or 10 led's that lit up on the board when the TV powered on. When I replaced the board (which fixed mine) the new board had the same led lights but there was an additional one that was right below the big heatsink that blinked at a constant rate like once a second. I have no idea what they represent but I know the bad board didnt blink and the new one did.

My 2 cents.....

The sets are again listed for the three stores...
Kansas City is down to 1 set
Beltway/Rockville, MD is up to 4 sets
Twin cities/St. Louis Park, MN is unchanged at 2 sets...

Now for the bad news, the price is back up to $2,199.99 + the ubiquitous Tax.

Regarding this issue, I have it too, but I have a very simple process that avoids it EVERY time. Essentially, turn on, and make sure that whatever device you are going to use on the input that your TV comes on to is sending a signal. For instance, if you have a DVD player connected to HDMI 1, turn it on first, wait 30 seconds or so, THEN turn on the TV, presuming it is connected to HDMI 1...or if you have a PC connected to VGA, first boot it up, and then turn on the TV. The key thing is you need to leave your PC on one of the inputs, and you need to make sure that the device is sending a signal over that input BEFORE you turn on the TV. I can duplicate this every single time...if there is nothing on the input, the TV will freeze, if you have something sending a signal on the default input the TV uses when it turns on, then you are all set...at least that's how it works for me, every single time!
