Re: Samsung HLS5086W - spider crack on outer screen
The outer screen is called a Lenticular screen, it may come as a set with the Fresnel (the inner, and the way I would actually go) the screen is very hard to replace usually on a DLP as they have a somewhat sealed upper side and alot of screws.

DLP/mirror chip is going bad. A common problem on Sammy TVs after 2-3 years. Chip is user replaceable (try samsungparts.com or ebay) for about $150-200. Sammy was (last year) repairing the DLP White Spot problem for free. You MUST talk to ECR (executive customer service) to even think about getting that consideration--forget the standard CS people. Don't know if they are still covering this out of warranty in 2010.
This is an interesting problem. I'd say the most inexpensive bet is to place some spider traps outside the Television and let the sweet scent attract the spiders. It might work over the period of several days. More info here: http://hubpages.com/hub/Spider-Traps
I am not in my shop, so, I cannot look at the schematic.
The only problem I have seen with two lights blinking with this set is an intermitent thermal fuse above the lamp.
Sometimes the lamp door switch is in the up position and it needs to be down (This normally occurs when the lamp door has been opened and it also comes from the factory in the wrong position.
The set has a one year warranty. Contact:
for a local servicer.
You will need to get the screen from here:http://www.samsungparts.com/part_detail.asp?catalog%5Fname=Parts+and+Accessories&product%5Fid=BP67%2D00261A&search%5Fmodel=HLS5086W You should also get the service manual for this TV set, as that will show you how to disassemble the TV set. Good Luck
