|Was given an Olevia 542-B11 with the understanding that it is "not working" (their exact description). Upon inspection, I can identify the following symptoms.
* When plugged in to the wall and the main power switch to the ON position, the standby light illuminates, as expected.
* When pressing the POWER BUTTON on the bottom of the set, absolutely nothing happens. The standby light remains illuminated.
* When pressing the POWER BUTTON on the remote control, the standby light blinks off, then back on. No picture appears (the screen remains black).
I removed the back of the TV to ensure all internal connections are firm. They all appear to be. Beyond that, I have not done any other troubleshooting procedures, as, quite frankly, I do not know of any.
I have seen similar issues with this model of TV, however, no mention of the standby light turning off and on, when applying power. This gives me hope!
If there are any suggestions or troubleshooting techniques, I would be most grateful!
