I had a similar problem 2 years ago. It was intermittent. Sometimes, the tv would come on after several tries. But eventually, it wouldn't come on anymore. I was astonished to have seen this problem start when my tv was barely a year old. The problem was not the lamp itself, but the lamp power assembly. Sony, thankfully, covered the warranty service. The tv had to pulled out of my home and stayed at the repair shop for two weeks.

Yes the light with the sun around it, as you discribed it, is the light that tells you the bulb is out. Your set uses a Sony part number XL-2100U bulb abd that is available HERE http://www.partstore.com/PartSearch.aspx?PartNumber=XL-2100U&x=15&y=18 I would go for the first one, as I have found replacements for a little less cash just do not woirk the same and do not last the same. Good Luck
