There’s a burning smell aswell

OK, you should contact the manufacturer and get it replaced.

As it is dead, the power board seems to be faulty.

If you have any further questions, don't hesitate to ask!

Is that normal for it to be dead even tho it’s brand new already ?

The burning smell should not be there as its brand new.

You have already tried different socket so if it was not manufacturer fault, it would have worked.

Please let me know if you have more questions regarding this TV ?
