Unplug the set and do not for any reason plug it back---unless skilled have the set looked at by a technician or a repair shop.

My astar ltv 2701 27 inch hdtv tv started to smoke and i need to get a new motherboard but where no one sells just the motherboard

I have a working motherboard from a broken screen LCD.
The smoke could have been from the capacitors in the power supply and not the main board. I would suggest to inspect the power supply as well for bulging or leaky capacitors that fail most of the time.
Let me know if you need further assistance.

I need a replacement circuit board for my Astar LTV-3001.. Mine began to smoke... and I don't allow smoking in my house...

The failures on these LCD's are due to defective capacitors in the power supply. There are about 23 capacitors that will need to be replaced to restore the LCD power supply functionality. Check the picture to see where the capacitors are located, the power supply on your LCD is not the same but similar to the one on the picture just the capacitors are place in a different order.
Let me know if you required further assistance.

My FLM 3232 flat screen LCD tv smoked itself. (Smoke curled from top vent) There's no way I can fix it here in my living room. Who can I take it to for service?

You power supply smoked on the TV.
The power supply will need to be fix because there are not many service parts available.
Today's electronics devices are basically made disposable when they break down.
