    Viglen Omnino TFT spares?

    Our school has 40+ Viglen Omninos bought in 2006. They have proved robust and excellent in use. I have had to replace a few PSUs (which Viglen still have) but recently, one of them failed with a faulty TFT. When powered up, the Omnino boots up but the screen shows 'no signal'. Thought it was the psu so did the usual swap but it wasn't that.

    Viglen say they are unable to supply spares for the TFT as they keep existing stock for themselves!

    I guess the screen is OK as it shows 'no signal' but there are two other boards fitted in behind the motherboard and wondered if anybody new if they could be bought from anywhere?

    Hope someone can help!

    I can see some on eBay for about £50. TBH, you'd pay that much (at least) for a new screen.

    Thanks for the reply! Can you give me a link to the parts? I googled the code numbers of the boards but got no-where.
