I came across this forum and I had to reply. Nine days ago, we purchased a Sony 46" Bravia LCD 1080P 120 Hz HDTV. We noticed a repulsive burning electronics odor coming from the top of this television whenever it was turned on. The odor literally made my wife and I sick (headache and nausea). We hoped the internal electronics just needed to burn off some manufacturing residue, but the odor never improved. Always a sickening burnt electronics odor was present throughout our house whenever the this TV was turned on.
On the eighth day, while the television was on, the screen went black for several minutes. That was the last straw, we boxed up the set that evening and returned it to the store on the ninth day.
Not sure if this burning electronic odor was specific to our particular television, or is inherent in all large LCD HDTV's. This was our first HDTV purchase, and needless to say, we are very disappointed with this specific Sony LCD television.
