Question about Niko OTP-3211W 32 in. LCD Television

2 Answers

This morning the screen is black...

Was working well last night. This morning, no picture. I checked all inputs. The screen is still black when I try to go to the menu. The green light is lit showing power. Unfortunately, I was just informed by Tiger Direct that Niko is out of business...while I still have a month left on my warranty. I checked out the Mac it is connected to though..and it still is running fine since I can remotely access files via the network.

    I've had the same problem. Got mine from Tiger Direct as well. I think that we might be S.O.L. I'm trying to look into replacing the bulb or inverter, but I don't know how to find out which one is the problem. I'll let you know if I figure it out.

    Same thing happened to me. Was fine on May 27th when shut off but screen was black when we turned it on morning of May 28th. Audio is fine but screen totally black. Also bought from Tiger Direct - have always had very good luck with products purchased from them. This TV worked fine for 2 1/2 years but expect that it's a throw away at this point.

    I have the same problem. Product from Tiger direct, picture stopped working June 17th. Any thoughts on how to fix would be appreciated.

    Add me to the list. It will be 3 years for me in March. I've had issues for a few weeks and unplugging it would fix it. Now I have a pic but it is real fuzzy and can't knowingly be fixed. please help!

The black screen with audio working ok is the inverter card.
Just replaced mine. It is CMO part number VIT70002.00

The inverter provides the high voltage necessary to drive the cold cathode lighting.

A new card is about $180 but shud save having to dump the set.
Card is located on left side of the display (as viewed from the back).

Black screen with sound

My 47" LCD Smart T.V. was working fine last night. I got up this morning and I have sound but no picture. The VIZIO icon lights up as usual but I get no picture, only sound. From the time I turned it on, nothing appeared on the screen. I have already tried unplugging it for a while and still nothing.

No picture

If everything else works - there is sound and high voltage (static on the screen) - but there is no picture (including no on-screen menus), this limits the likely area of problems is the video output circuitry or CRT filament connections. Check to see if the CRT filaments are glowing. If they are not glowing, check for bad soldering on the CRT neck board and around the flyback transformer.

. This source of bad connections can result in a variety of erratic symptoms. Check for bad solder connections on the CRT neck board.
