Smoke coming out of tv, and bad, burning plastic smell

The picture is a bit 'stretched' out, and sometime screeen 'quivers' or 'flickers'. This has been happening for some months, but yesterday, the tv was on for several hours, and by afternoon, we smelled a horrible, plastic burning smell, and saw light smoke coming out from the top of the tv somewhere. We unplugged it, and have done nothing since.

Try to open the back cover of your tv but be sure to unplug it, then try to look for a bulge up capacitor beside the flyback transformer. if you see this capacitor try to replace it with the same value. feel free to send feed back good day and best regards.

I have a 32" RCA LCD tv , rlc3210 power input says


Is it hooked up with HDMI cable?

If so try unplugging the HDMI cable and re plugging the cable in, sometimes those cables work loose and if they are not tight, it will cause your screen to flicker. Happens to my TV once in awhile.

Vizio vt420m comes on then flickers and then doesn't show any picture, but the tv stays on


If you have not been using the TV for quite sometime, moisture would have developed some defects inside the TV when you switched on. Sometimes even insects and lizards might get in and cause short circuits. Anyhow this might require attention by a qualified service technician.

LG 37 inch Flat Panel Loses picture


Take a camcorder and capture it, that should be enough proof that it's failing often enough to be repair right. When the picture goes out, can you see it dimly if you take a flash light to the screen? It might be a bad inverter.

Flickering Picture?


Your set might have a high voltage leak and that is the noise you hear when is showing the screen problem or even maybe an arking too ,either one is related to the high voltage and it can be dangerous,if you are familiar with tv service you can try to see where is arking and replace the part with an exact replacement but if the set has a leak you will not see it and is not safe to be close to it,if you are not too familiar be safe and call for assistance from a servicer.
