Samsung LCD TV shows dark gray spots

by sabahshaheen123 / July 4, 2011 9:02 AM PDT

I have an LCD Samsung TV which I bought 5 years ago from Kuwait. I live now in Egypt. Recently it shows dark gray spots scattered on the screen mostly on the left half. these spots
are still weak and barely can be seen on light color background, yet they are getting noticeable with time. I noticed also
that when there is a black or dark background "usually displayed between
different scenes", a reddish spots are formed.

I tried to change display settings such as brightness, sharpness, contrast... etc. but the problem still exist.

Does anyone have the same problem? is it repairable? and how to fix it?

**More details:
Samsung HDTV
DNLe SRS TruSurround XT

Thank you in advance.

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?
