Dont fear the smoke behind. firstly open your tv. get a brush and clean the in side,it might be other particals dropped in side.
you are able to see where the smoke is coming from.
a qualified tech will solve that without wasting time on it.

My mom has a samsung hc-p4752w and my stepfather heard a pop with a burning smell and after that his tv has a double vision look. so i saw on here how to fix the grid which worked fine except the red...


Convergence IC's are bad......

You can mess around with ordering them, and replacing them, and hunting for the bad resistors on the board and replacing those too, or you can order a new board PN BP94-01266a for around $160, and plug it in. You'll have to readjust the convergence manually afterward. Just did it on my set - works beautifully!

Samsung 30" Slimfit HDTV SMELLS up the whole room!


If it smells like ozone, I don't know how to describe the smell, it is from the faulty CRT base socket, it is not a major trouble, you can easily replace it or get it replaced, just get the exact same type base socket. I don't think the problem is something else becasuse other smells that can happen are from burning components, in that case the tv wouldn't have worked so long. Good luck.

Whirlpool GC5SHEXN Side by Side Refrigerator burning smell


How long had it been plugged in when you started to smell the burn. What kind of burn do you smell, is it an electrical burning smell or a smoldering dust burning smell.
