Olevia LCD 542I - Had the same issue for a week until the tv would not turn on anymore, after several attempts it came back on. A few days later the tv turned off then only the standby light was on, then lost the standby light as well. After researching the problem it could be in two areas, either the power supply or main board. Removed the back and found the power supply had several capacitors that were bulging on the top and appeared the fluid was leaking, all signs of a failed part, removed the PS and replaced four capacitorst that had shown some issues. If you can removed the PS and check for a number on the board, mine was FSP271-4F02, and find someone who has some electronic circuit capablilty, the issue may be resolved at a fraction on the cost of a new power supply.

If it's failing to turn on, the main power supply is probably at fault and without some technical background and a couple of test instruments, you will not be able to do the repair yourself.
What you can do though is; unplug the set, let it stand overnight or at least several hours, remove the back panel and look for a separate board with mostly larger components on it; it will have a ferrite core (no laminations as with a line-frequency part) transformer on it and several larger capacitors which are cylindrical and mounted vertically to the board.

Before touching anything inside, especially on that board, allow several hours to be safe since the larger capacitors can hold a painful voltage charge for some hours.

If you see signs of overheating such as discoloration of the board material, the PSU may not be repairable but if you can find a part number on the board, you might be able to buy the power supply from the mfr. and install it yourself but it will likely have the same problem eventually unless they have altered the design or improved component quality.
If there are no signs of heat damage to the board, there may be companies offering to repair it as a subassembly instead of repairing the whole set which could be much more expensive.
If you choose to replace or have it done, the main power supply still may not be at fault since most are capable of switching on and off if a downstream problem is causing an overload and the power supply for the backlight may be at fault.

Sounds like you need to download the latest update, unfortunately Olevia went bankrupt and doesn't answer the phone. If I find out anything that is being done to correct the situation, I post it

Popping sounds means that there's a discharge inside the tv. Since the HDMI inputs have also failed my guess is that the 20 volts power rail from the PSU has problems, most likely caused by failing capacitors. The tv must be opened and that rail checked. This requires some electronics expertise, if you don't have it then it's time to call a repairman - his labor bill will be much higher than the price for the replacement parts.

Power light is on but no picture or sound


It seems that your unit has some sort of PSU fault, or a problem that is shutting down the Power Supply Unit, PSU. This happens so that no further damage, and possible fire will occur.
You need to take the unit to a reputable service centre/man and ask for a firm "Quote" for the work to be done.

My olevia 42in not getting power is it the power supply thats going out sometime it turns on


Look at the power supply first; look for burnt parts, bad capacitors, etc. Look for 5vdc, 12vdc, and 24dvc.

42" TV has sound but no pictures


yea it sounds like a main-board or inverter board.. sounds like the panel of the television is loosing power and you are still getting sound..

Olevia did go out of buss.. but i know this 3rd party repair center called Amergence technology is offering to repair Olevia's. But the thing is that the whole television will have to get service they don't sell parts so you might want to give them a call and get an idea on the repair quote.. 866-965-3842
