Question about LG 50PX5D 50 in. Plasma HDTV
My wife says that our LG plasma TV, which we bought brand-new about a month ago, is emitting a smell. What could this be?
I had the same prob and thought it would burn off. It didn't after a month. Read the comments and tried the plug direct into wall socket plus i washed off the tv surface several times. Now no smell. Not sure which action cured the problem but i'm now happy. It was so bad i had to leave a window open and at times i would gag from the smell.

I imagine it is the new silicone grease coatings on the electrical components. These tvs tend to run hot and it should burn off after a few days.

I turned my 32 inch Vizio LCD TV off for a few days as I was sick of the same old programming junk and whaddaha know.. I am starting to breathe easy again. Jeeez and the whole time i thought it was because I was not vacuuming enough or it was the laptop that was giving me a headache.. nope.. culprit is the damn TV. NOw i remember when I first got it, i was sick as a chained up dog in the sun . And could not figure out why.

LG32"LCD450..when I opened the box I could smell a strong chemical or plastic odor which burned my eyes, my throat and my breathing. When we pulled out the TV the odor was extremely strong. We removed all the clear protective materials and the set (not turned on yet) emitted horribly strong odors especially at the back.
Our solution: the TV is now in our unfinished basement(but very dehumidified and dry) and we are running it several hours during the day.. so far no improvement.
They are killing us with chemicals and wonder where our kids are more asthmatic and people get cancer who never smoked.
