Burning plastic smell in ViewSonic E55 monitor

Just bought a ViewSonic E55 monitor, and almost immediately started to notice a burning plastic type of smell. Not overpowering, but enough to notice and cause slight burning of the eyes. Even thought this doesn't sound like something that should happen, I'm wondering if something just needs to "burn off" as it is brand new. Any tips? Thanks/

My monitor is making a electronic sort of distortion noise (sizziling). Anyway to rectify it?


Check the security of the power cord and look for damage to the plug and moulded plug, see the pins are in tight, vheck the plug socket on the monitor to see the reccieving pins are not bent or damaged.

After that, the issue lies in a short or developing short on the board, if you notice any smell (burning plastic ), you should stop using it and get it tested and repaired

Smell of rubber or plastic burning when in use.


Does your unit have a power nozzle?-- could a belt be slipping at the floor nozzle?

When does the smell begin-- Immediately-- or after running awhile?

Do you feel anything in the power cord that is HOT?-- or the wall plug?
(You are not using an extension cord, right?)

Tell us more about the machine, and when and where you notice the smell the most--

Burnt plastic smell coming from bottom of frig


This is a sign of a short and should be looked at immediately. A smell like that is a sign of something burning. I could be the start relay and start capacitor with overload. But I would not sleep with the possibility of a fire. I will look over your model and see if I can find what this could be, Sea Breeze
