Samsung TV shutting off/on, new way to keep TV on

by MillsV39 / October 10, 2016 6:56 AM PDT

I have a 55' Samsung TV which is only 6months old. My TV started cutting off, I tried everything, even spending a great amount of money. I even had my panel fixed, I even called Samsung, first to be told my warranty expired, next to sending a tech out which was very pricey, now I got the hell fed up and yes I put in a small claim which people don't know that their is a law suite against Samsung, so if you want your small portion you best to do your homework now. Any who, this what me and my hubby did, today this morning our TV in the livingroom wasn't coming on now we can hear the on sound then sec later the off sound as well, here's the tricky part you know how u Google this prob and it states if you have cable, then the signal not strong enough and its not sending no satellite to your TV. Lol this wth you do, if you have cable with an HDMI HOOKUP you need to leave it plug up now if you also have a red, white, and yellow cord (the color cord) plug it up as well from the cable to your TV. Now turn your TV on from the TV once its on then you quickly unplug that damn HDMI CORD AND SIT IT TO THE SIDE U WILL BE NEEDING IT IF YOUR TV CUTS OFF AGAIN, next go into your settings and change your timers OFF. AND ANY OTHER SETTINGS THAT NEEDS TO BE CHANGE MINES was just my sleeper and timer. I want to video this so no one will think I'm frauding which I really don't care but this is the best method so far and its freaking priceless. My TV has not been off since I learned this on my own, in a month, until last night oh ALWAYS UNPLUG THAT TV THAT CUTS OFF EVERY NIGHT BEFORE BEDTIME, THAT WAS MY MISTAKE LASTNIGHT, DOING ADULT THINGS HAD ME DISTRACTED AND THAT'S WHY I HAD TO DO THE HDMI & COLOR CORDS HOOKUP. HOW THIS HELP LOOKOUT FOR A SMALL VID SOON MIX SPENDING CASH OR CALLING SAMSUNG GET ON YOUR HOMEWORK AND GET YOUR CLAIMS IN. I KNOW WE WORK TO HARD TO LET A COMPANY GET OVER **** THE GOVERNMENT ALREADY IS. HAVE A GREAT ONE

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?
