LCD and Plasma sets DO NOT have degaussers in them. That was for the old Picture Tube Models. Try using a DVD on it and let me know how it looks. It sounds like a cable issue, but I don't know what type of signal your using.

Picture rasterization

It sounds like the LCD controller board problem, usually if you cool it down the problem will go away, and comes back when it heats up again.

No sound. No picture. I just turned it on and the screen was black and there was no sound either. It has been working fine for the past 3 years. I have Dish network. They don't think it is their problem....

If you get the same results (no sound/picture) using a dvd player or other media device, then your power supply board needs servicing. If you have an extended warranty take it back...

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

Olevia tv

If an LCD TV has sound but no picture do the following:

Use the source button to ensure that source is not set to the wrong input.

Try unplugging power cord for ten minutes, to ensure it is not a setting problem.

Check all the video cables at the back of TV.

Check Light /Color settings.

If problem persist and does not depend on external receiver or settings, then it is likely an internal fault.

If it has sound but no picture then one of the following parts is faulty, and must be tested and replaced:

The inverter is the high voltage board that provides variable power to the backlight lamp. This is the most common. When inverter is faulty you can get no picture, or a very dim picture that can only be seen by pointing a torch light with a 45 degree angle on the LCD surface from very near distance.
The inverter must be tested by reading voltages with a multimeter.

The LCD ribbon cable/LCD display and connectors.
This is quite uncommon, but happens. If the TV had been hit or moved the LCD cable may have slipped out, or the LCD connector may be damaged.

The LCD controller board.
This is the board that controls the video signal, it is difficult to test, as there is need to read determined values on IC pins. To test this board you need to purchase a service manual and follow the troubleshooting diagrams on service manual.

Input/Output Signal boards.
This are the boards where you connect the video and audio cables, if a signal board is defective, then you may get no picture on particular inputs located on faulty board.

If under warranty contact the manufacturer ringing the number on the user manual.

If you want to repair at your own expenses, just locate any good qualified repairer.

OLEVIA 540-B11 42" LCD-Inverter supposedly shot craps

Ok I'm Not an expert on Olevia's but I've done enough LCD Tv's to know a few things. The inverter boards are usually located on the right and left side edges at the back of the chassis. They usually run from the top to the bottom and have multiple connectors coming out to feed the backlights in the LCD panel. I can believe Olevia might not supply them (most other companies do) except as a part of the LCD panel. In some cases, the manufacturer of the LCD panel (Olevia does not make their own panels) does not supply the boards separately to the company making the set..In terms of getting a diagram, the panel maker (probably chinese or korean) probably has one, but Olevia may not. Your best bet would be to keep an eye on a site like this one:
They get scrapped TV's and remove the inidividual boards for resale. I have already checked and they don't have the board you're looking for right now, but that can change. Sorry I can't be of more help!
