    If you have an Olevia TV, your warranty is probably going to be worthless now. Parent company Syntax-Brillian has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection. Olevia is going to be spun off into its own limited liability company. An Engadget commenter suggests that after the bankruptcy proceedings, Syntax-Brillian will have no assets, only liabilities. In accounting terms, outstanding warranties are a liability. It's just an educated guess, but don't plan on counting on Olevia to fulfill their warranties (not like they were so great at service to begin with). Instead, if you bought an Olevia on a credit card, you may have extended warranty protection through your credit card company, as Meghann describes in a recent post (see number 6).

    We have a 37" Olevia TV. It has an annoying quirk which I don't know how to fix. When I try to turn it on the blue light goes off then comes right back on-nothing happens. If I do it again, same thing.If I wait a few seconds and then click again it finally comes on. Any clues to fix this?

    Doesn't the Olevia TV's only have a 90 day warranty? I guess this is a condition where the Fry's PSC is a good thing to have, or is it? :face-crying:

    Sounds like a bad capacitor. Also, don't buy Olevia.
