samsung sp-56k3hd shutting down

by bigg1115 / April 15, 2012 1:11 AM PDT

Hi gutted my tv started shutting down after about 3 seconds of viewing.
the sound stays on for around 4 seconds then it goes of as-well itself.
iv tried re-seating the bulb
and iv tried just taping the switch on the lamp door to see if its just that switch but still the same.

The tv just keeps re starting then shutting down itself.

bulb looks ok but iv owned the tv for around 4 years and its never been changed.

Any ideas on what it could be, i don't really have the money to buy a bulb and it not be that.

thanks for looking

Not sure what that means but my question is.

How long since you put in a new bulb? If never, the chances of it being that are much higher.

And even then this is not a sure thing. It's simply that if it is the original bulb the chances that it will fix it are much higher.

If you want an absolute spot on diagnosis, the tech that does such things will come to the set and they will change it and see. If it's not that, they will put back the old bulb and you won't pay for the bulb.

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?
