Smells like burning plastic

I just replaced the bulb in my tv and there is a strong burning plastic smell. I saw that it could be just the new bulb, but I want to make sure.

Probably the odor from the new lamp. It should disappear shortly.

I replaced the bulb on my Samsung DLP projection TV (HLT5075SX/XAA) but now there is a plastic burning smell. Does anybody know what it can be?


That is probely the smell of the new lamp. If the odor persist and gets worse then remove the lamp and inspect it and the inside of the tv.

Samsung hdtv HLP5085wx no image. Smelled something burning and sparking, turned off the tv. Tried turning it back on = have sound, NO image!


OMG! Dude, your screen is just plain fried. You don't need a new screen though, You just need a new bulb for it. See, behind the screen is a light bulb (unless your T.V. is plasma screen), sometimes two or three, and that burning smell was the bulb blowing (like when you need to replace a light bulb in a lamp or something). I don't know where you can find a new bulb, but once you replace it everything should be fine.

Try replacing the belt. My vacuum cleaner had the same problem and once the belt was changed the burning smell was gone.

If it smells like ozone, I don't know how to describe the smell, it is from the faulty CRT base socket, it is not a major trouble, you can easily replace it or get it replaced, just get the exact same type base socket. I don't think the problem is something else becasuse other smells that can happen are from burning components, in that case the tv wouldn't have worked so long. Good luck.

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.
