Do not turn this television on! Any electronic that smokes is NOT GOOD! The smoke and accompanying smell is from plastic and solder that is being melted by a short on one of the TVs logic boards. Call a local TV repair man this is not an issue you could fix yourself and will most likely be better off buying a new television. Stay away from off brands like these, spend the few extra bucks on a name brand like Sony, Toshiba, LG, or Samsung and you won't encounter these types of issues.
UNPLUG FROM THE MAINS
UNSCREW THE TOP CASE
UNPLUG THE 2 SOCKETS REF PICTURE ( TECHWOOD AV BOX RESET AND UNPLUG )
LEAVE THEM UNPLUGED AND “PLEASE BE CAREFUL AT THIS POINT” SWITCH THE
MAINS BACK ON AND SWITCH THE POWER ON THE AV BOX, IF YOU GET A RED
LIGHT SWITCH THE SET OFF.(PLEASE NOTE THE RED LIGHT MAY NO ALWAYS COME
ON, SO DONT BE ALARMED).
PLUG BOTH THE LEADS BACK IN AND SCREW TOP CASE BACK.

JOB DONE HARD RESET.
First make sure to hit the menu button on the TV's remote and if nothing is there then friend while the set is on turn a bright flashlight on and shine at angle into the set push the TV menu button if you can see a image then your back light is not working.
You can also check the transformers they are close to were the wires plug into the panel, make sure all transformers read the same amount of resistance if not you have found a bad one. Now you will have to check to see if the power supply is sending 24v to the backlight, if not the power supply is bad. Cost backlights around 150.00 and power supplies around 100.00. Well this should help you friend.
