Burning plastic smell westinghouse hdtv

I have had this 32" westinghouse HDTV for about a year and all of a sudden there is a buning plastic smell when it is on. I checked the back and found a lot of dust on it so I used a can or compressed air to blow into the cabinet in hopes to clear all the dust out. Smell doesn't seem to be as bad but there never has been anything wrong with picture or sound. Just the smell.

My tv smelled like plastic was burning and then the screen all of a sudden went black but i could still hear the audio.


Your backlight inverter board has failed. This may be due to a bad capacitor which is easy to repair, or the inverter transformer may have burned out, in which case it may be replaceable or the complete inverter board will need to be replaced.

LCD circuits overheated shut down the video. Leave the TV on standby for a week or more to see if the ccfl lamps come back on. You may need service.

Hello, it sounds like you need to replace the inverter board on this unit. I would recommend opening the unit from the back cover, get the part # for the inverter board (long green board normally running accross the edge of the TV) and go to www.shopjimmy.com, they should have it in stock and if not you can try www.invertercentral.com, they should also have it.

Smells like wires buning


Motor may just need new brushes, Cooling vents may be clogged with dust. or bearings in the motor or front roller maybe bad. Causing excessive drag
blow it all out with compressed air or shopvac
look for external brush caps (2) oppsite from each other take them out to be sure they slide freely, sometimes one gets hug up and doesn't make good contact
