LCD Toxic Plastic 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? We have purchased 3 LCD TV's (different brands) over the last 3 months and all of them smell like toxic plastic (2 of which have since been returned due to the smell). I noticed that there are many posts that talk about the smell being generated when the TV is turned on during the warm-up period, but this does not apply since our TV is turned off for days at a time without the smell dissipating. It's not a ventilation issue either since it's in a large room with a vaulted ceiling, two ceiling fans, two supply air registers and a large window. I can live with the smell that has been there for more than 2 weeks now as long as it is a non cancer causing agent creating the smell. Any help would be appreciated.

change out the LVDS cable (the cable that go from the control board to the main board) and it should resolve your problem. If your TV is still in warranty, call 1-877-MY-VIZIO and they will set up an in home repair for free.

SOURCE: Would power on and off when I would try to turn it

I removed all the screws from the back cover. Upon visual inspection of the power supply board, model # PSPU-J707A, I found electrolytic capacitors C233 and C234 to have bulging tops. Both caps are 10V 3300uf. I'm going to replace them and post the results.

Brand-new window unit emits musty smell when compressor shuts off


It SHOULD NOT ... (smell in... even in WEST TEXAS).

BRAND NEW... Rush on down and get a good
NEW one.

I would suspect the condensate drip pan is plugged...

Common for AC units ..

But NEVER in "brand new"...

Get that (previously owned (my opinion)) UNIT
back from where you bought it ... Trade it in for a CLOSED BOX... and make your sales CLOWN write up why you are returning it.

Mold can be quite dangerous!!

Plasma TV smell?


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.

Chemical smell coming from fan?


I have installed hundreds of fans in homes and businesses. The only smell complaint I have encountered was from a fan that came with rubber band like gaskets around the light shades. I guess these were intended to cushion the glass where the mounting screws contacted it. When the lights heated up the glass, a hot rubber smell became very strong. We tried smaller bulbs with no help. The solution was to throw away the rubber bands and attach the glass with the screws directly like all the other brands. Since then, I have always thrown the rubber gaskets away if they come in the kit.

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.
