Plasma TV smell?

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've had a Panasonic LCD flat screen for over a year, and it just started emitting very irritating plastic fumes. The TV works fine and is not hot anywhere. Any ideas?

A smell from a plasma is usually a electrolytic capacitor leaking.  Luckily, replacing capacitors is very easy.  you can do it yourself if you have any skills at all, and if you can identify it.
just google what i am saying, you should be able to find the info you need to replace them.

Present your case to LG customer care ASAP. So close to out of warranty, they may at least cover parts. you will almost certainly in the first instance be referred to an authorised repairer.

How do I colourwash my LG Plasma TV model LG 42PC55


In the menu selection you should have something in the options called ISM Method. Set this to "color was" to wash colors out, then use the white wash to get the ghost out. It is also recommended that you use your plasma at 50% contrast as the gas used to display color needs time be evenly worn down. I have a brand new 50" LG 1080p full HD 600Hrz that I bought last month, and I already have burn in because I didn't read the manual. Make sure you're using the orbital setting during the first 200 hours as well this will reduce the intensity of the burn.

I bought a brand new 42 inch plasma vi vo tv 2


New products do fail. The set should certainly be under warranty. I would speak to the dealer you purchased the unit from and see what they suggest. Don't remove the rear cover, or do anything else to give anyone a reason to void your warranty. Most brands are 90 days on parts and labor.

You will definately want to call LG and have them refer you to an auth. service center for warranty repair. This is either a failed scan bd or mayber even a bad plasma panel and there is nothing simple for a problem as you describe.

You can have them repaired but, usually the cost of a new plasma panel exceeds the cost of replacing the set.

Plasma TV smell?


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.
