LCD TV smells like plastic burning--dangerous?

\015 Samsung 26'' LCD TV smells like plastic burning. Did this when new then stopped and 6 mos later is doing it again. What is this? Is it dangerous? Don't see any answers on Samsung Help info; just that it happens. My spouse is blind (listens to TV) and if this is going to catch on fire, I need to know. Thanks. jcarlisle-sd\015
