Hi, I was watching a movie last night, when i started smelling burned plastic.   At first I wasn't sure where it was coming from.  As the smell got stronger, I realized the smell was coming from inside my Sumsung television.  I quickly turn the power off and disconnect it from the wall.  Anyone having similar issues?  I take good care of my stuff this is a manufacturer issue, I have noTV now.

Hi Andrew, emailed Sam as advised. Haven't heard from him yet. Would there be anything you guys could do or would I need to buy a new TV?

This happened to me last night. I fell asleep watching a movie with my toddlers. I woke up and the smell was so strong. Is this TV done for? Please help!
