CANNOT find RESET for lamp hours.....

by roonskapper / January 28, 2009 8:36 AM PST

I am sorry if this has been posted a million times but I cannot for the life of me find out how to reset the lamp hours after replacing my bulb.....I have a samsung HLS6186W dlp and love it. I replaced the bulb about two weeks ago after a hefty 10925 hours, I went into the service menu but unlike most FAQ's i can find, there is no reset option. Is it called something else? Is it even necessary? I am freaking out about it now because the tv shut down twice in 5 minutes with the standby and lamp flashing. After a quick vacuum of the fan and what I could reach inside it seems to be staying on, but it is really bugging me that i can't figure out how to reset the hours. Should I reseat before reseting, if i fugure out how to reset that is?

Thanks a MILLION.

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?
