- Lesson o de 3 weeX: disconnect anyelectronic device that is giving out a burning scent because it is a sign that it WILL soon fail, and if it does then it will short-circuit and disconnect all the electronics within the same fuse-box, and it might even ruin some. The source of the scent can even be a cable. You can check by smell, sight (burn marks) and touch (heat).
