Smell coming from TV

Have a Dynex 26 inch just bought from Bestbuy. There is a smell of plastic or something coming off the set. Is that just the newness from factory? Only has less then 8 hours of running time. Other wise works great. This is the 26 inch model!!

yes it can be due to new set. the components are new and have just started working initially that's why they cause smell. if your set is working fine then leave it like that and use it. if it remains after few days or increasing than before then u have to notice it in details otherwise no problem

Is my tv set up for netflix

The tv itself isnt a smart tv so it doesnt come with netflix or connect to the internet for that matter. But you can connect a compatible device such as a ps3 or a computer. Hope this helps.

My daughter bought this tv for me a few days ago and there's a smell coming from the back of the tv is that normal?

Some plasticizer out-gassing is normal in new electronics. I personally would want to make sure there is plenty of ventilation in the room for the first couple of days, especially while the set is running. A burned plastic odor or visible smoke is cause for concern; if this happens unplug the set immediately and make a warranty claim.

I have a Dynex 26 inch tv, literally bought it 6 months ago and the picture went extremely dark....

If you are sure the warranty is expired, the cost will be somewhere between $50-150 US. Although it is early for this kind of failure, either the fluorescent back-light or the inverter for it is likely dying.

Insignia 26 inch TV/DVD Combo produces strange odor when on.

You should never have an acrid or burning smell coming from electronics. I'd return the unit, if that is still an option, as it is about to fail.

Insignia LCD26 26 in tv

Unfortunately I know mine's already out of manufacturer's warranty so I know they're going to just tell me to upgrade or let me know that I should've purchased additional warranty when I bought it! I know it sucks & yes a LOT of people seem to be having issues with this monitor but that's the cost of buying the cheap stuff! We get what we pay for in the end...
