Question about Initial Televison & Video
I have a like-new (never been used) 2007 Initial LCD TV Model HDTV-320. All functions work EXCEPT no signal for HDMI or DVI. I have connected a Netgear NeoTV Streaming Player through HDMI port, but get no signal. Also, I have connected a MacBook Pro laptop through DVI port, but get no signal. Both devices worked on a smaller Sanyo flatscreen TV using the same HDMI and DVI cables. So I know both devices and cables work. A cable company tech suggested the ports were bad, so I removed the main board. Visual inspection of the main board revealed nothing obvious, so I showed it to local electronic technicians, who said they were unable to test or repair the main board, but they suspected that is where the problem lies. Main board part number is DTV3218ATM V2.3 QAM. A Google search for this part number suggests this same main board is also used in another brand, ILO LCD TV Model HDTV-322. Further research revealed the ILO and Initial brands look identical. If you agree the problem most likely originates with the main board, can you recommend a reliable source for a replacement? Should I search for new or used? How much should I expect to pay? Based on the information I have provided, can you think of another possible solution to the problem?
