    One day I put my notebook on top of the shelf system and I heard a "pong" voice. Then the power can't be turned on. After open the case, I found the fuse (the top one) was burnt one. With replacing a new one, fuse goes out again when the power is connected. 

    Don't know what happened, anyone can help?

    One day I tried to turn on the unit and could not. I did not smell anything burning. I did not do anything unusual to the unit. I looked inside and saw nothing. Is there a fuse somewhere?

LG 47 LS 4500 LED LCD burnt power board

Hi Keith,
First try to replace your power cable if it seperate from your TV and use another power socket to cofirm your cable is good and power socket. If your power cable is attached to the TV then just take the set to repaire centre and get it fixed.

Well maybe a power surge happened last night.

Is the computer plugged into a power protector? If not maybe something got fried.

Check for the smell of burnt components. It smells like burning plastic kind of. If everything looks fine make sure everything is plugged in tightly like the power cord and hard drives etc.

Hope this helped.

Burnt smell

Most like the capacitors on the inverter board or power supply are going leaky.. if you look at the board you will notice that the caps are puffed out at the top. replacing them if difficult and if you don't have the skill to replace them have a good tech do it.. repairing the board is much cheaper that replacing them.
As the caps get worse the set will stop cumming on.

Dryer smelled of burning plastic, smoked stopped turning on

check the power cord itself, if you see on the back side of the cord a burnt or blackened spot then the cord is the issue

Not receiving power

unless you have repaired circuit board assemblies in the past including replacement of board traces, there is little possibility of home repair here because ".... think i did smell something burning before". Sometimes the manufacturer will include an on-board fuse. You can open the case and look for this, but it may be too late. Fuses may never emit a burning smell even after they "burn", unless it is a slow-type and not encapsulated and you have a keen sense of smell. Sometimes the power section may include large power resistors; large because of the wattage they must dissipate. Look for one of these burnt and replace, but he actual burned part may be hard to find unless you have very good bench-testing tools and instruments. Bottom line is ...highly unlikely, "can i fix it on my own".

No power

If still under warranty or if you have no electronic repair experience you should take the set back to the shop or to a repair person. Some of the solutions described below can be dangerous, TV's are very hazardous to service. Even when plugged out, TV's can store very high voltages. Could be several things- a 15 cent fuse, some solder joints that fail due to expansion and contraction of the circuit boards. Hard to say. Look for parts that look or smell burnt, might help you narrow it down. Good luck
