Had the same problem and drove us nuts. What happens when you put in a new bulb is it starts a expected bulb lifetime hour count down. This does not mean the bulb will burn out but it might be time to have a backup. What you can do is go to the menu and search around to reset the bulb counter as if you put in a new bulb. We did this one year ahgo and project is still working fine. It is, however, mounted to the ceiling so there are no vibradtions during cool down.
Good Luck

My Phillips flat screen model 42fd9935/17 has started going black after playing for about 2 hours... you can still hear the sound, but the screen is black... the picture will come back after turning the tv...

The cost of getting this plasma fixed is not costwise compared to getting a new TV. I recommend NOT to get another plasma but get either an LCD or LED for the best quality compared with price. Plasma parts can be quite expensive especially for a 10 year old model or may not be available.

    Gateway FPD 1730 Monitor

    What has happened is part of your back lighting circuitry has gone out. Yes it is repairable but can cost most of what a replacement monitor will cost these days. Check that out before spending the money. If the problem is only in the back lighting circuit then expect to spend about $100 for a replacement board.

    LCD monitors lifespan depends on the quality. Normal use and you should get 2-3 years of reliable service minimum. The display itself is good for about 4000 or so hours of use or more. The problems that show up are always (well 99.99% of the time) are back lighting problems like you have experienced. You should turn it off by the switch when not using it as every hour it runs the screen save is an hour of usable life. Heat is not good for it so if your computer gets the dust cleaned out to keep it cool do the monitor at the same time. Once a year at least more if you smoke use gas heat and have pets.

    Tube monitors have a much longer life but you have the size weight and poorer display to go with them. If you have to go back to a tube monitor don't go back to your 14 ask around and you should be able to get a 17 or 19 crt for free. Or expect to pay no more than $10-20 for one.

    Dell e176fpm can't enter setup

    As you probably know, these settings are made in the monitor setup, not through the computer. Monitor settings vary a lot, so it would be hard to even give a generic answer, but for sure you have several buttons either on the bottom or side of your monitor. Keep trying to push any of these (Left to Right or Top to Bottom) (except the on/off button) until you get a setup popup screen. On some models it jumps right up, on others you may have to hold in for a second or so. Then the next menu is from one of the other buttons. Usually there will be two buttons for + and - for adjustment and also for one screen to the next.
