    I have the exact same problem. If you read other web sites so do hundreds of other Olevia owners. I happens just a few years after buying the television. Buyer Beware!

    yep, same problem here after about 31/2 years of use. picture will go black. have to turn it off and back on. works for a few more minutes then black again. usually only in mornings and evenings does it have this problem. can work for 6-8 hours without going black. then when it does, 4-5 times of restarting and its back to normal.

    if the picture is still there just in wierd colors is it still a blown inverter??

    if the screen is there just in blue and red and dark colors... example: i can see that it is a basketball game and see the players outlines but I can't make out anything other than that... if this is what is happening is it still a blown inverter?

You have a broken inverter board. I have a LT30HV, and it had the same problem. The inverter board supplies power to the backlight. Swap it out with a good one, and you're back in business.

To test, take a bright flashlight and point it at the screen just an inch or so off the surface. If you can see your picture, then you have a blown inverter.

it may not be worth fixing it. Wait for a good sale on a new one. My inverter cost about 150, and it was a remanufactured part. Not as good as the original part as it flickers just a tad. I had to take the entire TV apart, with pieces literally everywhere. My cats loved it.

Olevia 42 inch Flat Panel has power supply issue... Blue light does not come on and tv does not turn on... I have tried all different things to get tv to work with no positive results

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.

My syntax Olevia LT30 HV turned on and displayed blue screen for 1-3 sec and than no signal nosound??any advice seems to be inverter issue.

Since you lost both sound and picture, I would suggest to take a look at the power supply for bad filter capacitors, look for bulging on the top of capacitors. If the backlight inverter board is bad you should still get the sound.
