Question about Westinghouse SK-32H540S 32 in. LCD TV
As you mentioned there was a ' smell ' and ' pop ' noise which confirms that there is a short circuit that have happened. Even though you had surge protector, these problems could be there ( though rare ).It seems more likely a problem with power supply board. It seems as if certain IC's were blown out.As it is only over a year old, i would advise you to ring manufacturer so that they could take care of it. You never mention as it is few days or months. Most manufacturers would repair the TV even if it's within 1 month after expiration of warranty or they would only charge for parts, if required. Again, this is completely on manufacturer. There is no hard and fast rule.
If you have experience in repairing electronics and could repair TV's, could read schematics and would be able to keep precautions, you need to open the TV and look at the power supply board. Make sure not to damage anything. More often, you would find swelled / bulged / fused / leaked capacitor. Des solder that and take it to radioshack or fry's and buy the new one. Solder the new one and it would fix the problem.
If you do not see any blown IC, revert and we could further troubleshoot that would need you to have a look at service manual as well.
Let me know,if needed further assistance.
Hope i helped you.
Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!
