Samsung LN46D630 is losing it's brightness

by burtski60 / March 17, 2015 11:38 AM PDT

I purchased this 46 inch hd Samsung in June of 2012 so it is out of warranty. The picture appears to be slowly losing it's brightness. For example, any shadows on a program appear almost completely dark now. I've tried resetting and increasing brightness with no success. Please help

Samsung losing brightness

I'm rather handy and was wondering if this CCFL replacement can be done at home with the right parts?

You'll want a service manual, YouTube videos and know about sites like,

This CCFL take HV (10KV) to start so it is not considered a trivial area to work in. That is, non-user serviceable.

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?
