If even the indicator light in the front isn't lit, you might be lucky enough to have something simple such as a blown fuse that is in line with everything.
Normally, if the main power supply fails, a small 'always-on' supply that services the low voltage circuits that are kept alive even when the set is'off,' in wait for a command from your remote, survives. Our Olevia has an 'off' indicator that extinguishes when the set is turned on, don't know if yours has the odd arrangement.
If you open the set (allow overnight with the AC plug pulled) and find no user accessible fuse to replace, you are probably looking at some labor charges for a service call. Without a power-off rest period, you may encounter some nasty voltages inside.
In case it needs something, be advised that Olevia is bankrupt so other than 'commodity' parts common to other sets, you may not get the part you need.
Good luck-

Hi, My Olevia 42 inch, model342-B11, has a problem with its picture. At first I had vertical lines running down the screen, then it turned into small squares. What do you think is wrong with it?

Parts are hard or impossible to find for this brand but it sounds like the "main" board which processes all signal in and out of the display.

Olevia 542-b11 LCD HDTV won't turn on. Blue light blinks twice

My Olevia 42" television is several years old. In March of 2012, the infamous "TV will not power on" problem started.

The blue LED light on the front of the TV would go off for a split second, then light up again. The television would not start.

If you are handy with small tools and a soldering iron, you can change the capacitors on the power supply. My Olevia is a model 542-B11.

I bought the repair kit off eBay from seller: sghill99

As of this writing, the seller has sold 37 of these kits. The title of the auction is: Repair Kit, Olevia 542-B11, LCD TV, Capacitors

And if the url is still active, it is:

I made the repairs in March 2012 and it is now August 2012 and the television is still working great. It is turned on and off several times every day.

I have an Olevia 242tfhd television that just stopped working. The blue light was on and when I pressed it- it wouldn't turn on and the blue light went off. I unplugged it for a day and when I plugged it...

Same happened with my Olevia 540-B11. You can probably find the details of how to disassemble the TV somewhere online. The problem is poor stress-relief on the cables that plug into the secondary (low voltage) side of the power circuit board (PCB). Once the back is removed you'll find the PCB on the left side with three cables connected to the very top of the board. These cables plug into four clips, 3 horizontal clips side-by-side at the top and one vertical clip on the left side. Unplug these cables, remove the PCB and re-solder the sockets (there are approximately 40 solder points on the back of the board). Reassemble your TV and it'll work just fine.

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!
