MY 52XBR4 also has this issue.

I Bought it yesterday. April 10th. 2008
The weather is good here in Seattle for a few days so I'll open the windows and let it air out.

Good to hear it goes away eventually, thanks.
Makes me feel better about spending that money on something that smells like burning electronics.

I bought it locally after returnning two Toshiba sets. (one I didnt like and the other defective). The Toshibas didn't smell at all. I Do have to say that except for the smell I like the Sony much better than the Toshibas.
