LCD TV smells like plastic burning--dangerous?

Samsung 26'' LCD TV smells like plastic burning. Did this when new then stopped and 6 mos later is doing it again. What is this? Is it dangerous? Don't see any answers on Samsung Help info; just that it happens. My spouse is blind (listens to TV) and if this is going to catch on fire, I need to know. Thanks. jcarlisle-sd

You can also try a hard reset: Unplug TV from AC mains and remove all cables from TV. Wait about 30 minutes and replug to AC power and redo the cabling. Switch on the TV and see if it works..

SOURCE: 26" Samsung flatscreen LCD doesn't power up

Just to be a little more detailed, since I just fixed this problem. It is the capacitors are the problem. However, I think that if you have some minimal skills with soldering, you can fix this yourself. You just need to take out the system board, then the power supply parts are on the top right. The bad capacitor(s) will be bulging at the top and possibly have some brown stuff coming out. The ones that go bad are 1000microfarad, 10V, however you can replace them with higher voltage. I got 35V caps from radio shack for 1.59 each. You just need to solder out the bad ones and then put the new ones in and solder. Remember that the negative end goes on the side with the bold black part of the circle on the system board. Then just cut off the extra ends of the capacitors. If you are capable of doing this yourself, you will spend at most 6 dollars instead of however much a technician costs.

I recommend you buy a new monitor, since just fixing the panel would be more costly then buying a brand new monitor. Check out www.newegg.com or www.tigerdirect.com for some good deals on new monitors.

Metz CT-4 flash gun overheated on the shaft the plastic casing overheated and melted the plastic on the handle grip I opened it up and noticed the wires inside were completely Melted.


Unfortunately, from your description, the flash is completely done for - while a repair may be possible, I doubt if it would be economically worthwhile. Replacement is probably the only answer.
What may be more important is to find out why this occurred - is it down to the charger, the batteries or an internal problem with the flash ? Were the batteries those supplied by Metz, or a different make ? If they were Metz ones, then maybe you should inform the manufacturers, to help others avoid this problem, and you might get a replacement flash if it is a manufacturing problem.

Weird smell coming from my samsung LN32D403E2DXZA LCD 403 Series TV


Sounds like an electrical burn from a circuit that is almost touching or is touching another circuit. Or it is an exposed insulated power supply wire that is uncovered and arcing to earth itself on the plastic casing. In any instance I recommend you call the store from which you bought it and tell them about it. They should replace it no question. Unless it is past it's warranty. It could start a fire, so please unplug it from the power supply before you go to bed.

We just installed our 65' tv and it smell like burnt plastic, is that dangerous? what is it


Keep an eye on it, if that is what I think it is. TV will stop working and you will have continuously flashing power light. Call Sharp and schedule a service call.

Smell coming from TV


dear,

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

regards,

MAGNAVOX TV BURNING SMELL TV WENT POP AND WENT OFF


Well that pop had something to do with the power components inside the TV frying. I would have to say there is nothing you can do to repair it as its dangerous to work on such things.
I wouln't waste my time bringing it to a repair shop they will probably tell you to just buy a new one.
