Question about Olevia LT42HVi 42 in. LCD Television
Talked to Olevia tech support-this was their guess as to what happened. Have audio but no picture. The TV is slighty over 2 years old, and in my mind this thing should not ave shot craps already. They say inverter itself cannot be replaced, but I find that hard to believe. I have removed the back panel off tv, and see all kinds of circuit boards, etc. I have no diagram so I am not sure where the inverter would be located.
Any ideas if inverter itself can be replaced; and/or get a diagram or manual showing where this board is located?

The inverter can be replaced. The LT42HVi backlight inverter has two boards.. one on the left and one on the right. I have 2 working Olevia LT42HVi tvs, which I have replaced with other tvs. Willing to part out. Let me know if you need anymore help. E-Mail: firstname.lastname@example.org

HI TODD , I HAVE THE SAME PROBLEM WITH ONE IN THE SHOP IN VA I AM WORKING ON NOW. THE BACKLIGHT IS PROBALLY BAD ON YOURS ALSO WHICH IS THE BOARD ABOVE THE MAIN BOARD. IT IS LOCATED TOP CENTER LOOKING AT THE BACK. IF YOU GET TO IT SEND ME AN EMAIL WITH THE P/N # , I WILL DO SOME RESEARCH. OLEVIA DOES NOT HAVE THE BOARD AND NO HELP ON FINDING IT . THE MAIN BD IS A POSSIBLE PROBLEM BUT TO INVEST $400 IS JUST TO COSTLY TO TRY.OLEVIA DOES NOT HAVE ANY DIAGRAMS TO USE THE CHECK TEST POINTS OR COMPONETS. TO CHECK FOR NO BACKLGHT SHINE A VERY BRIGHT FLASH LIGHT ON THE SCREEN FROM THE SIDE AT ABT 30 DEG AND LOOK AT THE SCREEN ABT 45 DEG > THE SET ON AND ON A CHANNEL. STUDY AND YOU WILL SEE A GHOST IMAGE TO CONFIRM NO BACK LIGHT.KEEP IN TOUCH MY WE CAN HELP EACH OTHER.

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!
