40 in onn roku tv wont turn on, red power light flashing, buring smell in back

I was watching TV then suddenly it turned off and I got up to turn it back on because before sometimes it would turn off and then I could turn it back on but it didn't have the red blinking light then so after pressing the button 3 times and it not turning back on I noticed that a burning smell was coming from the back of it so I unplugged it, I had another older tv give off that smell so I figured a bug got caught on a lamp but I have a newer tv so i dont think that's it

This is my tv https://www.walmart.com/ip/onn-40-Class-1080p-FHD-Roku-Smart-LED-TV-100005842/859504112

Any info would be helpful and I know it's not the outlet

The burning smell is probably some frying electronics. Sort of what you get when you buy a WalMart store brand. Roku just licenses their software for use in some TV's. They have nothing to do with the TV's themselves.

Depends on how old it is and if it's still under warranty. You can try checking at https://www.onntvsupport.com/
