Syntax's line of garbage (...'cant be fixed, buy new') is just that - garbage.
This can be fixed - part costs $179 from this site.
If you can take apart a computer/tower, you can replace this part, although I wouldn't say it is 'easy' as this website says. For me, took about 1 hour to disassembled it, bag the parts and screws with identifiers and pictures, and another hour to put it back together.
Yes - you will eventually need to buy a new TV, but you can at least limp along for another 12-24 months saving for a TV sold and serviced by a reputable company.

As suggested in another post, w2power has provided this solution. It is the only thing that has worked for me thus far. While it is a pain, I can at least consistently get my set to turn-on when using this USB cable method with logged-in PC attached to Olevia's service port (I have the 23" version)
"I think this model has a timer on it, it seems to go when the warranty runs out, not proven but Mine went out about a month ago. My only fix is to plug my tv (via the service port which is COVERED) to the usb port on my computer using my BlackBerry usb cable, in other words the Mini USB. Seemingly I must be logged on to do so and wait for the Chime form my pc, a balloon will pop up for new hardware not recognized (vista) then press the power button and then it turns on, unplug the usb cable and make sure the source is set to tv / video or else it will power back off and you will have to start all over. Theres NOT A PERMANENT fix yet but this is what I do every time I want to use the TV, I have a laptop so I use it as the Monitor just to watch movies. If you have a desktop I recommend keeping the cable handy BUT DO NOT LEAVE THE USB CABLE IN FOR LONG USES. THE SERVICE PORT IS COVERED FOR A REASON!!!

you have a broken inverter board. I have a LT30HV, and it had the same problem. The inverter board supplies power to the backlight. Swap it out with a good one, and you're back in business.
To test, take a bright flashlight and point it at the screen just an inch or so off the surface. If you can see your picture, then you have a blown inverter.
it may not be worth fixing it. Wait for a good sale on a new one. My inverter cost about 150, and it was a remanufactured part. Not as good as the original part as it flickers just a tad. I had to take the entire TV apart, with pieces literally everywhere. My cats loved it.

Yes they are bankrupt, and they did see repair services out to third party vendor- this appears to be phone support at $25 per 1/2 hour.
email response from service inquiry....
Thank you for contacting us. My name is Ravin and I understand that you have called in today for further troubleshooting but you were offered a paid service instead. Based on the information provided, I believe that the following steps should effectively resolve the issue:
I am sorry to inform you that, Syntax-Brillian, the manufacturer of the Olevia Brand, has declared chapter 11 bankruptcy and has ceased all operations. Because Syntax-Brillian is no longer in business the warranty for your product is void.
Amergence Technology, a 3rd party repair company, can offer paid repair services for your television and a paid service for further troubleshooting. Since Syntax-Brillian went out of business, Amergence is offering repair services to owners of Olevia HDTV's.
If you have any further questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact our Support Team at 866-965-3842 Monday through Friday between 7.00am 5.00pm PST
