    I've got a spider that is hanging from my TV inside the screen. I think that it's dead being that it hasn't moved for a couple days. Any advice on how to take care of this? Should I call CC to come out and remove the screen? Will this cause any burn-in? Give me some advice. I've got a Panny PT47WX42. HELP!!!!

    I asked my tech guy, Burl Ives, and he suggested that you insert a lizard into the set to eat the spider. Then you need to insert a cat to eat the lizard, then a coyote to eat the cat, and a tiger to eat the coyote. He had no idea what to do about the tiger.

    Okay, seriously:

    No, it won't cause burn-in. Burn-in happens on the CRTs, not on the screen itself. If the set is under warranty and you can get the work done for free, I'd call a tech. If it's out of warranty, you could try opening the set up yourself and carefully vacuuming out the little arachnid.

    Good luck,

    Well, I like spiders. When I see one in the bathtub, I scoop the fella up and take him outside where he can be with his buddies. Seriously. I like the things—but I have to protect them from my cat, who is fascinated by small crawling things.

    As for your situation, it does come up here from time to time. Unless you feel competent in removing the screen, wait until the service tech comes out and removes the body himself.

    Thanks guys. I didn't think it would cause any burn-in, just wanted to make sure though.

    Make sure the service guy looks around for eggs, too. That fuzzy little white spider nest could spawn a buncha li'l critters.
