TV Had Burning Smell and Now Won't Power On

A plastic/electronic burning smell coming from vent at top of tv filled the room so i turned off the tv. attempted to turn on the tv about 30 minutes later but it would not turn on -- no lights showing either. did attempt to unplug power cord from the wall but it did not help.

help!

my sony bravia klv40u100m was purchased in january 2007, manufactured in june 2006 (according to back of tv) and has not had any problems at all before this.

    I have the same problem. No power light, burning smell and just over two years old. That's $1000/ year rental. The fixes that have been posted sound expensive and unreliable. My next LCD TV/Monitor will be the inexpensive no-name brand. It will be less painful when it fails. I will likely have to pay someone to environmentally dispose of this one.

It is a real possibility that the power board has failed.

It is fairly easy and safe to remove it and inspect it and the burnt component will be easy to find.

Make sure you place the TV on a flat surface screen down where it is well supported. Do not put anything on the table under the set if there is a chance it will come in contact with the screen. Allowing the weight of the set to rest directly on the screen presents a real risk that the screen will break. Lying flat on a table, the set will rest on the frame around the screen which should be safe.

Do not apply power to the set with the back off as there is a risk of electrocution.

The board is available as a module and can be found on eBay occasionally. The part number is 1-789-496-11 and it will cost between $250 and $300 new.

I suggest you turn the repair over to a qualified service professional for the best outcome. Attempt any repairs at your own risk of creating further damage or replacing the wrong parts. The board failed for a reason. The core cause may not be the power board.

Panasonic PT-56LCX66 buzzing noise when i push power


I'm going to take a guess and say that the buzzing noise and burning smell was either a transformer or a blown capacitor (more likely). It's likely that your old lamp was still good and there is a problem at the circuit level.

If you or someone you know is comfortable with electronics, you may want to open it up and take a look. If there is a blown capacitor it will be obvious. Take a look at badcaps.net or Youtube for help on identifying them.

If you don't feel comfortable working on the inside of a TV it's probably time to get a new one. Repairs will not be cheap and they won't be worth it.

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

The tv smells like a burning wire


Can you describe where the odor is coming from. Is it coming out from the side panels on the tv set itself, or perhaps the plug, on end of the main power wire. Check around the electrical outlet. Make sure nothing else is plugged into the same outlet. It sounds as if some of the electrical components on the circuit board are burnt or burning out. Tv may have experienced a power surge, etc. Check also if the power plug is heating up. Be careful and smell around top side vents on tv. Be sure and unplug the set before leaving it unattended if you cannot locate the source of the "burning wire smell."

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.
