Having problems with your ViewSonic E55 15" CRT Monitor ?

Burning plastic smell in ViewSonic E55 monitor

\015 Just bought a ViewSonic E55 monitor, and almost immediately started to notice a burning plastic type of smell. Not overpowering, but enough to notice and cause slight burning of the eyes. Even thought this doesn't sound like something that should happen, I'm wondering if something just needs to "burn off" as it is brand new. Any tips? Thanks/\015
