Re: olevia 32 LCD HDTV

The electronics are known to go bad with these 532-B12 TV's, and if you have NO picture, that's probably what's gone wrong.  
These are LCD TV's, not plasma, so they don't leak (or, if the crystal layer leaked, you'd see more of a damaged picture, as opposed to NO picture).
I've actually got one of these TV's that I dropped, and cracked the LCD, and that's exactly what happened.   ...In fact, I'm looking for someone who has a TV with a good screen but bad electronics, to buy from them so I can swap the screen into mine, and so they get a couple bucks at least rather than tossing it to the curb... let me know.
I don't think that 1.5 years is long enough for a TV... the TV in my living room is almost 10 years old and working like new still.  Sadly, repair costs might be more than it's worth, especially with all the deals you can find out there right now.  But research it.
Let me know what you decide though, if that TV is truly broken, I will gladly give you a few bucks for it.

The calble is connected directly to the tv, not through the cable box & when i try to change the channel it says "no signal" at the bottom left corner. Olevia 32" model 532-b12

I assume from your question that you have a cable subscription and that you have the cable plugged into the ANT input via a co-ax cable. The ANT input is for an antenna for over-the air signals. The channel up/down change the internal tuner up/down. For example, if your cable is set to channel 3, it will pull in the cable on channel 3, but then try to pull in over-the-air if you hit channel-up to channel 4.
It seems you need some kind of converter box from your cable company in order to change the cable channels, and then that converter box would plug into either the ANT input (and leave the tuner on 3) or into one of the other inputs like Component, HDMI, SVideo etc.

I own an olevia lt42hvi; I need to change the picture (brightness, etc...) but it says I can only do it in "user mode." have never seen this before. I need help identifying and getting the tv...

I have a Olevia 532-b12 and it may be similar. Hit the small round menu button on the remote. A pinwheel shape should appear on the upper left part of the screen. Use the up/down and left/right direction keys to find picture, and you should be able to adjust brightness, contract, etc.

I have a olevia tv and the color of the tv is green how can i fix the color ,after comcast fix something in the signal the tv color is green

I have a 532-b12 so it may be the same - but not sure. Push the small round "menu" button on the remote. A pinwheel should show up in the upper left corner. Use the up/down and left/right arrows to go to picture. From there, you can change, saturation, color, contrast, etc.

Syntax olevia lt32hv 32 inch lcd tv. power surge now no picture

The electronics are known to go bad with these TV's, and I'm looking to buy someone's junk TV that has a good screen, rather than have to throw it out.   
(So if anyone is out there with a 532-B12 that isn't working, send me a message!)

Yours might be worth fixing - however I know sadly that parts are nearly impossible to get for these TV's, and the manufacturer is virtually impossible to contact.
If you DO manage to contact anyone (manufacturer or otherwise) who can source or supply parts, PLEASE do let me know - it's been nearly impossible for me, and I want to replace my cracked screen in my TV.
If you can't, please let me know - I'll gladly give you a few bucks at least to salvage the screen from your TV, to transplant into mine, rather than turning it into junk on your curb.
