Updating Samsung HT-B1250 takes very long

by Fixion85 / July 3, 2010 6:11 AM PDT

Last night my wife and I wanted to watch Avatar. We got the Red Screen. Some searching around here and on the internet learned the solution for this problem.

So i downloaded the firmware version 2.31. Followed the instructions from the site from samsung. (the downloadable pdf). Putted it on a flash usbdrive. As the update started i learned from the pdf it should took only 6 -10 min.

I'm already more then a hour further and still it blinks updating.

The firmware version was 1.00 could it be that it takes so long??? Or should I remove the USBdrive now and after that it turns off? It is getting already late here, and i dont feel anything for it to let it stay on during the night. (Especially there are big chances on thunderstorms)

What am I doing wrong?

First, remove any disc that might be in the tray.

Try to power down the unit. If that doesn't work, unplug it. Plug it back in and power it up. Hold down the FF>> button for 12 seconds until the unit resets itself. It should load the latest firmware you just installed.

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?
