Samsung TX75 Surround Sound Problem

by AnthonyG83 / May 30, 2010 10:10 AM PDT

I was hoping I could get the attention of the Samsung_HD_Tech. He proved to be very helpful with the white dot issue for DLP TVs.
Last night as I watching TV with my Samsung TX75 Surround Sound we noticed a burnt smell. As we looking around trying to discover what it was, I saw a flame come out of the back of my surround sound.
After doing a search, I see that other people's surround sound has also caught on fire. I know the product is out of warranty. Does Samsung have any kind of recall or help with this?

My apologies for the delay in getting back to you. We do not have a recall on the TX75 nor has such occurrence happened in our testing. There is a possibility that something might have caused this unit to overheat but the TX75 is equipped with a protection device that shuts down the power supply if it gets overheated. Did you see the word ?PROTECT? on the front of the unit at any point?

We would like to reach out to you directly to investigate further as the safety of our customers is very important to us.

If you have already contacted our service department, please provide me with your record number and we will contact you asap. Otherwise, please send me your contact info via email. (FYI ? For your own protection, we do not recommend you posting your personal information on this forum)

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?
