SanDisk Cruzer stuck in USB drive

I cannot remove the 128MB SanDisk Cruzer Mini from the USB port on my Samsung 50" DLP HDTV (HL-S5086W). I've used it many times to view pictures but now it is impossible to remove.

So it is physically stuck in the port? If it has been in there for a long time it may have been bumped or jarred so it has lodged in , slight bend or angle would verify that that is the case. It is not rusted or that there is corrosion causing it to stick. Those drives are inexpensive and unless you have some pretty imprtant photos on it I wouldn't worry about gripping it with some small pliers and extracting it straight back, it may crush the mini but you will get it out. The TV is worth more than the cruzer so keep in mind the port can be replaced. You can get an adapter wtih a cable extension that allows you to plug in different USB devices or card readers that way it's "remote" from the TV itself that would make it easy to pop it out and change to something else.

We have a Samsung HL-S5086W 50-Inch DLP HDTV. Works fine one min. come home few hours later no one has touched it... and now the sound doesnt work. Any ideas to what the problem might be?

sound demodulator board, is a common fault with this model.
remove plug in board and send it to samsung for exchange.
cost is around 223 australian dollars.
other than that you could opt to run the sound via an external sound system.
