Question about Samsung HL-S5086W 50" HDTV
There can be 2 causes of a squealing noise. 1 can be caused by the lamp, if it fails it sometimes squeals when the power supply tries to "jumpstart it". The lamp is in the back of the set with a little door covering it. Unplug tv and open door remove lamp to check it. If it is broken inside or the glass is very cloudy or milky looking lamp is bad.
2. is the color wheel. It is inside the tv the lamp plugs in right next to it. If you hear sound coming from that its the color wheel. That is a lot more difficult to repair than the lamp. this link will take you to an online store to check for prices shopjimmy .
If you have a repairman come out you can expect at least $300-400 dollar for a color wheel replacement and around that for a lamp replacement. Good luck!

The lamp hours will need to be reset and a new bulb and color wheel will need to be added:
This all probably comes a couple years too late, but when you install a new lamp, you’ll want to reset the hours on the counter your television has. Doing this will allow you to avoid getting any messages about the lamp needing to be replaced despite you having a new lamp inside your set.
If you need to get into the service menu, you can do so by following these directions:
With power on, hold down VOL minus button on projection display and hold down the PIP or SPLIT button (try both) on the remote simultaneously for more than 5 seconds.
