Black Stretch Lines on Samsung PN58C550

RE: Samsung PN58C550
I'm having bleed-over lines, mostly black and mostly on commercials when block lettering in black appears. The image goes across the whole screen and is about 4 inches top to bottom. It does happen on regular programming but not very often. I did not find any firmware update newer than what is already on the set. Mostly this TV has a great picture but this issue is very annoying and does not happen on my Panasonic or Philips Plasma TV's. Does anyone know of a fix or cause for this?

It's a stretch

But remember this is not a TV repair forum. It sounds like a board or tab bond failure but only a tech that sees the set would diagnose this.

Check your warranty and if in the USA, register your set for 3 more months if it's on the edge.

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?
