I assume that you checked to ensure that the power connection is good and that there is power to the plug (or power strip/surge protector) that the TV is connected to. Is the blue light on the front of the set on? This would indicate that the set is in standby mode. If there are no lights at all on the front - this indicates an internal power circuit failure has occurred. Could be a blown fuse or surge capacitor. Also could be that the power failure/fluctuation "wiped" the TV's memory.
Try this - it might work to "reset" the TV to factory default settings (if there is no component failure/defect in the TV).
1. Unplug the TV and leave it unplugged for 10 - 30 minutes.
2. Before plugging it back in - press and hold the main Power On/Off switch for about 10 seconds. Then release it.
3. Plug the set back in. The front panel "standby" light should be lit (on my 37" Olevia LCD TV, it's a big blue light).
4. Turn the TV on normally. If no response - press and hold the Power button for about 10 seconds to see if it will power up.
If it now works, after a few seconds pause, it should start automatically scanning for active channel inputs and storing them in memory. If not, go to the Settings menu and select "Channel Search" (or "auto-scan" or whatever the appropriate command is to have the TV search for and program in all active TV channels available from your input signal source).
If it still will not power up normally (or the standby light is not lit), then there's probably a blown fuse or capacitor or other internal component failure or fault. If this is the case - the TV will have to be diagnosed/repaired by a reputable TV repair facility. If it's still under warranty, I would contact the manufacturer's Customer Service department and just tell them that the set has failed and will not turn on.
NOTE: Always use a quality surge protector power strip or power filter device for sensitive electronic equipment, such as digital TV sets, home theater systems, stereo systems, etc (especially expensive items). I can't tell you how many defective units I've seen that require repair due to a power surge condition.

1.Power on the television and press the "Menu" button on the Olevia TV's remote control. 2 Choose the "Programming" option to view all of the Olevia setup options. 3 Choose the "Channel Program" option, then select either "Antenna" or "Cable" (select "Cable" when using a satellite receiver). 4 Select "Start" and the Oleiva TV scans over all the stations it receives. Once complete, is stores the information into its memory bank, so when you attempt to change the television station you only see programs that come in clear onto the TV.
If you have not discarded your old conventional TV or can borrow one, I would connect it to the same signal source you are using with the Olevia.
If you get reception with the substitute set, then the Olevia is defective.
If you live in a metropolitan area, you could also try sticking a piece of copper wire into the input of the Olevia and selecting antenna input as the source from inside the Olevia's setup menu.
If you still get no signal indications (quality is not important for this), then the Olevia is defective.
I'm disappointed to see you having trouble with this set as we own one too.
Also disturbing is Olevia's current state; they are in bankruptcy so I would start complaining soon and loudly if you have satisfactorily identified the Olevia as the problem.
Facing the back of television, if it occured while putting top right screw, that is because, you screw touched power module casing and the fuse inside the TV is gone. All you need to do is goto radio shack or any local store and get a replacement fuse (250v x 5 Amp) and replace it. It may cost you less than 2 bucks.
TV powers off and never turns on.
May even power in that room or house may have been tripped.
lay the TV face down on the floor.
Remove the screwes ( may be 10 - 15 screws)
Remove rear casing of the TV. It is single casing covering entire rear face of the TV.
Fuse is visibe as soon as you remove the casing.
Replace the fuse.
Put the casing back.
Start enjoying the TV.
Do not use longer screwes to mount monitor brackets on TV casing.
My tv is crap to. Green tint and washed out colors. Mine is 13 mos old. and the first one they sent had green tint to. They sent another one but now Im past warrantee! Ill never buy another tv or anything from them again!!!
I had this problem running my pc through my television through DVI to HDMI as well as a normal HDMI cable. Now, I'm not sure about the ps3 but my problem was stemmed from the digital color format settings. When set to component video color settings rather than RGB or HDMI the screen looks great with no issues. I believe this is an issue with the tv itself which is why I had to "trick" it into working. However, I don't own a ps3 so I don't know if it's possible to change settings like that. I know it's not much, but I hope it helps.
