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.

There is a key on the TV remote control for adjusting the size of the picture. On pressing this key you will get the options of the picture size like 4:3, 16:9, Zoom, Wide etc. You can choose the size you like.

No picture, no sound, but TV will power up


Average life on all brands and models is 3 to 5 years. Average repair on this size and type of set varies but is usually from 150 to 250 parts and labor. I see very few sets of this type (any brand) that are more than 6 years old.

The bulk of sets in our shop (over a hundred sets on average) that have failed are under 2 years of age.

Sanyo dp42840 42/46 in color tv have no sound or pic


No picture or sound means the main circuit board has failed, in most cases the boards are not repaired but replaced, this is a very expensive repair and so the option of replacing the TV comes into play, factors that affect the decision to repair or replace are the age of the TV, more than 6 years old replace it, less than 5 repair it. The average life of today's flat panel big screens is at best 8-9 years.

OLEVIA 532-B12 need video card


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!)

If it's a simple replacable part, it 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. I think that Sears repair person might be making it sound a little more modular than it really is.  If he's talking about replacing the mainboard of the TV (which IS a video board), that's basically "the guts" of the TV, and not a readily available part like a power cord, back side connectors.
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.

Suddenly the Tuner mode reports "No Signal"


Just a solution.

I attached a video recorder., and selected the video channel.
I was able then to see the channels through another AV slot extension.
Then I reset the TV to factory settings.
Samsung full HD reset code is 0000.
I used the original remote control.
I pressed the button TV/DTV to switch between mode., and from the menu I started
the option to scan the channels automatically.
Because the VCR was still connected it looks like it was forced to admit the channels.
I turned off the VCR and click on the TV the remote control for a known channel ( alternative control used) and surprise ... The TV started to react according to expected.
I disconnected then physically the cabling from the VCR and plugged in directly on back on the
wall connector. All is ok.
What was the reason ?
My wife dropped the alternative remote control ( not the original one) on the floor, and apparently an strange code was sent to the TV., which suddenly displayed " No signal".
I hope this can work for you.

Kind regards
Sanchez

Our screen went black no picture only sound


Try a hard restart, which simply means unplugging the power cord of the TV, and replugging it after 4 hours have passed. If this does not bring the picture back, then you should consider buying a new TV. The costs of a repair ( labor and parts) might exceed the cost of a new TV. Your 10 year old TV has served you well, and has exceeded the average life expectancy of 5 years. May it rest in peace in TV heaven.
