For Online Computer Support, Ask a Computer Technician
Hello, my name is ***** ***** I will be assisting you today.
I work on computers but have experienced this first hand on my own TV.
You did the correct thing by unplugging the TV as soon as you detected a burn smell.
This would mean that a capacitor or logic board has blown and could have caused a fire.
You can probably take it in to have it repaired but you would be better off just purchasing a new TV because the repair is the same price, if not more.
To prevent this in the future, buy a brand new surge protector, as surge protectors are only good once.
I wish I had better news!
