Most like the capacitors on the inverter board or power supply are going leaky.. if you look at the board you will notice that the caps are puffed out at the top. replacing them if difficult and if you don't have the skill to replace them have a good tech do it.. repairing the board is much cheaper that replacing them.
As the caps get worse the set will stop cumming on.

My toshiba 32" tv has a burnt plastic smell, I've heard a couple of people say online that maybe it's because it is new,I've had th tv for maybe 3 weeks, and was wondering if my tv is gona stop workin


how new is new

if un packed in the last 5 days
i would say its the new smell
give it a week to "burn off "
the factory assembly smells and glues

use the back of your hand
run it over all the unit see if you feel hot spots
the only hot spot will be heat on the outer casing
from the power source inside the TV

Thats the Inverter board. Your model used several different types which are not interchangeable. You can get the correct Inverter Board for your model by contacting the guys over at www.tvrepairworld.com

The tv smells like a burning wire


Can you describe where the odor is coming from. Is it coming out from the side panels on the tv set itself, or perhaps the plug, on end of the main power wire. Check around the electrical outlet. Make sure nothing else is plugged into the same outlet. It sounds as if some of the electrical components on the circuit board are burnt or burning out. Tv may have experienced a power surge, etc. Check also if the power plug is heating up. Be careful and smell around top side vents on tv. Be sure and unplug the set before leaving it unattended if you cannot locate the source of the "burning wire smell."

A loud pop came from inside the TV causing the screen to go dark, but the image remained. Smelled burnt component after turning it off. What would be the cause and can it be fixed?


Hello,

Vizio, AKA LG.

This is a common fault, your set needs a Z-Sustain PCB.

To give you the part number I would need the actual TV model number.

However, looking at the TV from the rear, it would be the farthest most board to the Right Hand side, it is positioned in the centre of the screen, connected by 2 / 3 ribbons one side and a couple of cables the other.

A TV repair shop should be able to fix it pretty easily. If not cheaply.

I just replace convergence board on my akai tv and


There is a burnt capacitor somewhere in the unit. Look for any burnt or swelled up capacitors. You can also usually locate a bad cap if there is burn marks on the system board. Also test power supply with voltmmeter to make sure it is a constant volt reading.
