by davidjose31 / January 28, 2009 2:01 AM PST

I just bought mi first LCD Tv, a 19" INSIGNIA LCD TV. So far its look very nice, the audio is bad but i just connected the computer speakers and sounds sweet. Now the problems: I turned it off, and like 2 hours after and the screen goes white!!!!! yes white!!, is that normal?, I dont think so, is that really bad sign or just a bad sign?? Any one help me, i am not a TV specialist ,should I take it back and get another???

What happen if you unplug it from the wall outlet?

I am wondering if it has anything to do with standby power.

Take it back. A brightly lit screen when an LCD TV is 'off' is never normal. Don't even bother with customer support, just return that badboy back to BestBuy. Odd though. Even though being BestBuy's in-house brand, the TV is largely LG componentry which itself is an alright brand. Call it a fluke and try again.

It just sounds like a lemon, so take it back and the replacement should work fine.

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?
