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.

I have a 1990s JVC tv that we were wattching the other day then we smelled a smoky smell. Then horizontal lines and staticy sound started to go through the tv. We tried canned air to clean the vents a few...


That tv is very close to catching on fire. UNPLUG IMMEDIATELY. When electronic equipment is old they dont just stop working sometimes. Sometimes the electrical current starts burning the wires and the dust inside. there is a definare odor to electronics burning or shorting out. smell around the air vents in the back of the TV. youll know if wires were burning its a distinct odor

MAGNAVOX TV BURNING SMELL TV WENT POP AND WENT OFF


Well that pop had something to do with the power components inside the TV frying. I would have to say there is nothing you can do to repair it as its dangerous to work on such things.
I wouln't waste my time bringing it to a repair shop they will probably tell you to just buy a new one.

RE: Samsung 26" (CRT) HDTV won't turn on...


THe problem is not likely to be a defective part although that could be the case. I would first look for poor solder connections that would have been agrivated by any moves that you have made. If you can solder, resolder any connections on any board that appear grainy or have rings.

Keep me posted.

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.
