My Samsung TV is experiencing the "white dots" issue . How can I receive my free one time courtesy repair that other Samsung owners have received?

It depends on the TV whether you'll get service or not. Apparently the DPL TV are not covered by NOTHING!!! It's a rip off and we should be able to do something. It's a known issues and Samsung should stop up to the plate and fix it.

How about all the other Ti powered DLPs?

The white dot issue haunts almost any make that used the Ti DLP DMD design. And while most get 4 or more years from the DMD, consumers expected longer life spans. It's a part that will wear out. Ti seems to be the common source for the DMD with heat and humidity being factors in life span.

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?
