50" Samsung Plasma has vertical lines on screen

by b00d / June 27, 2014 10:11 AM PDT

I have a 50" inch Samsung plasma tv, model PN50C490B3D, that has started to develop thin vertical colored lines on the screen over the last few months. It wasn't bad when it was just one but now there are several over then entire screen. Does anyone know what the problem could be and how I can fix it?

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
