    i have a similar problem. The tv will work fine for about 45
    minutes then this green picture overshadows my whole picture. I
    turn it off for a while then back on and it works. I think inside
    the tv, it overheats. I have placed two small fans on top of the
    tv and that works until the fans lose power(good for about 4
    months). IS there an easy fix?

    I read these posts and decided to take the TV apart. You are right. There is a place for a fan but NO FAN!! Leave it to the Chinese to save $2.00. I left the back off and and also took off the metal plate that covers the area that gets hot. Then I bought a cheap clip-on fan from Wal-Mart. It seems to work long enough to get my work done. ( I use it as a computer monitor).

    I also learned another lesson - READ THE WARRANTY!! One year for this item really means 90 days in small the small print. No help (even rude to me) from the retailer TIGER DIRECT.

    Cosco will allow any electronic item to be returned TO THEIR STORE within one year from purchase. Kiss my A_ _ TIGER DIRECT.

    My 32 inch has intermittent problems similiar. The screen goes scrambled, sometimes turn it off it comes back, sometimes not.

  • wm2044 Mar 24, 2009

    I have a Niko 32" LCD TV as well and have been having problems with the screen scrambling at random times. It's been happening more often and the scrambled picture lasting longer each time. My TV is almost 3 years old and worked great for most of that time but I think these were really not built to last. My parents had a similar TV and had the same issue after about a year. I hope there's a long-term fix - otherwise I'll be in the market for a new TV a lot sooner than planned...

  • decarlod Apr 29, 2009

    I have the same problem. I will look at putting in the fan and see if that helps

  • decarlod May 11, 2010

    I took all the screws off the back, I still get the back off. Where is the are where it looks like a fan belongs or gets hot?

Well I was inspired by reading this to dig out my old Niko TV - it took quite a while to disassemble - a couple at each side for the input connectors are deeply inset - and hint don't take off thefinal screws off the stand while its leaning on it in any fashion.. -

Anyway. before checking further I turned it on and it works ! Clearly a ventilation problem IMO.. What a pain. I agree there is a place which when cut out is where a fan would go. I'll probably put a computer fan on there - I have several lying around

My problems are that the tuner looses the stored channels and the power will not turn on unless I turn off the main power for a short time. Anyone have any of these? I've had this lcd for 3 years. As a pc monitor it's very good, but the tuner is getting to be too much.

Posted on Oct 31, 2008


This is just a poorly designed TV, it has thermal problems, if you notice there is room for a fan at the top, but they left it out. I have had the power supply die and I fixed it, no help from Niko. I have resolved to let this tv die when it is ready now and move on. An expensive lesson on early adoption of cheap off-brand products.

Mine was doing sorta the same thing. I think it is a called bad components. As I stated with my "lemon tv" problems, it may end up with the same problems I'm having now.

I had to turn the power on and off on the back myself and of course, Niko was no help at all. If it is under warranty, call them right away and get help. Mine was out of warranty.

    I have to add that I was having this problem at start up....not during the time it was on for awhile.


Same problem here too. Happens everyday now until power is off for a while then picture is stable. Thought it was interference, but I'll look into the overheating issue a bit more closely.

This sounds like an impact injury to the screen itself. It is likely that something may have hit the screen or if the set is old, the part inside may be starting to go.

32" niko lcd-green pixelation

This is probably model OTP-311W. Problem is caused by overheating. Air flow is restricted by plastic grill over fan in back of unit at middle top. To fix, remove four screws retaining grill and fan. Take off grill, leaving fan in place. Replace screws without grill. I had same problem. Since removing grill, have now run unit for over 72 hours without pixelation problem.

Bought Niko 32 LCD HDTV last year Sound is good No picture.

Changing the inverter board shouldn't be hard. It's just the matter of taking things apart and unplugging some wires to it.
There shouldn't be anything you would have to solder in.
I'm sure he gave you the price of the whole inverter board itself. Not the small transformer inverter on the board.

Google Allelectronics or Hosfelt Electronics for these caps
I just ordered these at a good price but ordered 35Volt instead.
Also replacing 3300uF caps too as they are bulged at top.
Hope this fixes it. Will let you know.
