Two things, assuming you installed a working power supply and main board, check to make sure the kill switch is in the "On" position. If my memory serves me correctly, this set does have one. Are you sure you have a working outlet? power cord? When you say the set won't turn on , are you referring to the entire set or just the screen?

Olevia 242-s11 the blue on/off light is not on , and the tv does not work ,screen is totally dark???

The main power supply regulator section circuit fault. Either it will be a separate board, or the part of main board. Check and replace damaged component/s at its main power regulator [SMPS] section circuit. Contact any service technician. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts. It will be best to replace the power supply regulator board as card basis rather than making "Surgery" to it; which usually will make loss for both money and time. Even though you can make it right, it will cost around an amount equal to the cost of a new board; including the cost of (spare parts + service charge) More to say, most of the spare parts to it will be difficult to get from open electronic spare part market. This is true to most of the flat panel TV power supply boards; irrespective of its brand and screen size.
Search the site by type in the "brand name" to your device; in the "Search box at the top right of the display window of the Homepage" to get gathered related posts.

Olevia 242 S11, began having sound issues; first turned on pic with no sound. Cycle 2-3 times sound would return. Now it would not turn on. Would have to unplug power for 5 min. HELP

That sounds very much like a failed electrolytic capacitor in the power supply board. It's easy to spot; the top of the capacitor is bulged up and may be leaking material. Usually, there is more than one bad capacitor. See the attached photo - two of the three capacitors shown are bad.

To get replacements, you need the following information: Capacitance, printed on the capacitor label (e. g., 2200 uF where the u is actually the Greek letter mu and stands for micro-; this would mean 2200 microFarads),
Maximum Voltage, printed on the capacitor. The replacement may have a higher voltage rating, but not lower.
Maximum temperature, printed on the capacitor. The replacement may have a higher temperature rating, but not lower.
Diameter of the capacitor in millimeters. The replacement may have a smaller diameter, but smaller diameter capacitors may not meet ripple current or endurance specs (described later). There may not be enough space on the board at that location for larger diameters.
Length of capacitor in millimeters. If it is too long, you won't be able to fit the cover back on without damaging something.
Endurance: at least 6000 hours at maximum temperature. For 10 mm diameter capacitors or larger, you should be able to find 10,000 hour parts.
Ripple current: You want the maximum ripple current rating available consistent with the other specs, otherwise the new capacitor may burn out prematurely. Higher voltage capacitors often have a greater ripple current rating, and physically larger capacitors likewise.

I have had excellent result with Panasonic FR series capacitors. They are much better than the Chinese off-brands usually installed in LCD TVs. When you install the replacement capacitor, make sure the polarity band goes in the same way as the original (the board is probably marked to show which way), and use lead-free electronic solder with an iron that gets hot enough for it. There are static-sensitive parts on the power supply board. Do not touch the circuit conductors with your fingers; handle the board by the edges only. Do not place the board with the wiring side down on any surface except an antistatic mat.

My Olevia 323-S11 will not turn on

Most likely you have a fault in the power supply or main board. I would start with checking the power supply capacitors.

Olevia 437-s11 is stuck in stand by mode, I tried the solution provided but I'm unable to find the firmware in the olevia page. do you have any idea where can I get it?

It's not a firmware update, you do have a problem with the main board giving the power supply an ON command. Please have it looked at by a qualified technician.
