You both need to IMMEDIATELY download your warranty from the Olevia website. Read it completely. If you are still under warranty, then contact them IMMEDIATELY in writing pursuant to the warranty and demand that they fix the TV for free pursuant to the warranty. Do not accept "No" for an answer. Document every communication and contact you make, including date, time, who you spoke with (first and last name and/or employee number), and the content of the communication.

Do not delay on contacting them, because the warranty is controlled by the date you purchased the TV. If it passes, then you are totally screwed. Olevia will ignore you.

Do not buy any Olevia or Syntax products in the future. Tell everyone you know to not buy their products either.

You may be aware that Olevia is bankrupt and apparently Emerson bought the leftovers and is offering service but no parts sales.
I found this thread discussing antoher model's various problems but I believe your power supply has likely failed.
Olevia thread
If it is the type of failure related to the switched-mode power supply, these can be repaired by a properly equipped tech; I've done hundreds of them while still in business (which I am no longer).

Syntax Olevia 30" LCD - blue screen, then black screen, sound is on

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.

You need to take the unit to an authorized repair shop to have it
check and correct it , looks like the power supply section got affected by the sudden change of voltage and damaged an internal part, hope this helps , AJ

Olevia 26" Flat Screen

I too had a similar problem with my 26" Olevia LCD TV, except it would flicker at different frequencies like a strobe light.  The flicker would even increase in speed, giving the visual illusion that the TV was about to blow up.  After several power-on, power-off, unplug, repeat, I was about to give up and think about looking for another TV. I saw your posts here and both of you "hit" the TV and it seemed to fix it, right?  Same here -- I gave the TV several good lateral "whacks" upon the outer edges of the unit!  The whacks weren't violent, just slightly "jarring" and after that, the TV stopped the flickering.  As you've said, it is quite juvenile to go beating on electronics, but interestingly enough, this method of "fixing" the electronics does at least seem to have an effect if done correctly.
I do also note that I went into the TV's menus and intentionally set the "Back Light" setting to "Dark" and "DNR" to "Low" to perhaps attempt to lesser drive the back light.  Since the beatings and then the much more rational idea of changing the menu options, the TV has worked, at least for a while now, relatively well.
