HELP! I think my LCD TV is trying to kill me!

My LCD TV is leaking water from one side of the screen. I can feel water coming from one of the vents on the left hand side. I first noticed it not last Thursday but the Thurday before. There was at least 20 teaspoons of water in a puddle behind the TV. It seems to happen after we've had heavy rain, and we've had quite a bit of rain the last couple of weeks. The signal breaks up and that rarely happens anymore other than we have extreme wind and rain. Some of the pixels in the picture go black.

I checked on the net and it sounds as though the problem is with the coax from the aerial. It may have got damaged from the extreme cold temperatures last month and so water has got inside the cable. Do you think it could kill us?

Do you think the crack in the living room window, the broken tap in the bathroom and the water gushing from a small pipe outside the shed due to a burst pipe could all kill us?

No, I don't think those things could kill you. You'll be alright.

Trolling Restart & Reboot Yourself is kind of pointless, considering about 3.5 people post here.

... considering all 3 responses have been in the same manner...

that is all.

I try to read and help, but when I've got nothing, it's better than leaving the topic blank.

Ah you misunderstand me, I am humorously suggesting I think the original post is a troll

There's no way a tv can leak water, as there's no water in it. Perhaps you should check the ceiling above the tv...
It can perhaps leak the LC's, but those should look nothing like water as they're far more viscose. In that case, call a repairman or trade it back in if it's still on warranty.

Most probably the water is running down your aerial cable, and leaking out near the seam with the connector.
Just loop it properly.

Old capacitors too can leak electrolyte, but not more than one or two drops.

It won't kill you but it may kill the TV.
