Hello jmaselli1,

The popping sound may have been a capacitor or a rely. I am going to assume it was a capacitor, since you probably have not heard the popping sound since that first time. In the case a capacitor possibly located on the power supply board has vented and caused a short circuit in your TV set.

To answer your questions:

is this common problem? yes it is due to a strange case of industrial espionage on the capacitor makers part.

expensive repair? Not really if it is only one bad capacitor, if there are others it could get expensive. depending on the labor costs

I hope this helps,

Thank you,

You definitely have a bad lamp. Sony rates the lamp life at between 4000 and 8000 hours. There are 3 things that effect the lamp life, listed in order of importance:
1) number of times the lamp is turned on and off. Every time the lamp is first fired, it takes life off the lamp. Customers I see that turn the TV on in the morning, leave it on all day and then turn it off on the evening can get up to 12000 lamp hours
2) ventilation. Be sure you have at least 6 inches of open space all the way around the set and that the vents are clear of dust and debris.
3) power. If the power is interrupted when the set is on, there cannot be a proper cool down cycle. The fans will run after you turn the set off to properly cool it down, if the power is lost this cannot happen. If your power is unreliable, buy a small UPS to let the set finish a cool down cycle

Occasionally a lamp will faill before the average lamp time due to being defective. from your purchase date it sounds like you got about average lamp time. Be sure to purchase AN ORIGINAL SONY LAMP as a replacement, becuase the aftermarket lamps are bad news, Be sure to rate this solution. Thanks!
