Question about Samsung TXM3096WHF 30" TV
I realize all TVs probably have a 'new TV' smell, that is likely some sort of toxic chemical off-gassing (I know they have flame retardants in them!), but I have never had a TV smell so strong! Not so much when it's not on, but when it's running, even for a short period, it smells. It's not a burning smell, but basically I'll call it a 'new TV' smell, but so strong it's on the verge of making you feel sick. We have the TV in our bedroom and even the bathroom and hall smell when it's running. I'm considering returning it due to this. I've had it almost 2 weeks and the smell isn't getting better. I've even tried leaving it run all day (yesterday) with the windows cracked and that didn't help. I LOVE the TV otherwise - this is a real bummer to me :(
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.
