See if you can locate the source and remove the burning object (if it does not belong there) or replace the burning component (if it is a defective part). If you do not feel confident doing the service, get professional help.

be careful. It may not be not safe to use until it is repaired. A fire or explosion could occur. Unplug it from the AC until you get it serviced.

Hope this helps. :)

There is a strong electrical smell when I turn the TV on. Picture still works.

Unit is cooking and getting ready to self destruct. Check out your power supply visually and look for something that is discolored from heat. Also follow your nose.

When I fill up my 1977 fuel injected Beetle there is a strong smell of gas. When I fill it half way the gas smell is nowhere near as strong. What could cause this

Sounds like a leak in the fill tube. "full" causes an over flow; "half" only leaks a little.

Smells like burning plastic

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

Samsung 30" Slimfit HDTV SMELLS up the whole room!

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.

I have a 6 year old Samsung PCJ522R 52" TV.

It sounds like at least one of 3 "IHVT",s popped. in short, a "IHVT" is a high voltage transformer. It will have to be replaced along with any other parts that were damaged in the process.
They do produce a strong odor when they pop!!

It is repairable but at a price. there is a good chance that parts will have to be ordered.

you might consider buying a new LCD HDTV instead of fixing this one.
