I do not have any power on the TV, no light comes on. This was bought in 1998. Wonder what is the average life of this TV. I have checked the power point, it is connected to a power strip, everything else on the strip is working....need help!
I have a 1998 VS-60703, picture and sound went out, and do not come back on either through remote or tv button.

Tv projection lamp have a life span like any other bulbs light sources.Tipically life spans of these tvs projection lamps are around 20,000 hrs of useages.That average out like about 1 1/2 or 2 years and around 4 or 5 hours of the tv is on and watching it everyday.Now the front tv bazel frame of the tv.The word "LAMP" LED light indication is on or flashing are indication of the tv projection lamp life span are over and the tv must have it projection lamp to be replacement to another tv projection lamp.Projection Lamp fillerments tipically dies out when it reaches it life span.Mark or burns on the projection Lamp,will not show or be there,if the tv projection lamp run it natural life span cycles.
It time to replaced the tv projection lamp again,the tv projection lamp life span have ended.The tv projection lamp life span only last 2000 hrs.Average out like 1 1/2 or 2 years max for tv on watches 4 or 5 hrs of tv every days.
How old is the tv? Sounds like the bulb. Is there any kind of lamp light indicator blinking or on? Averager life of a bulb is a few years, but could very well be shortened. Also check any surge protectors you might have. Maybe you recently had a surge and it needs to be reset. Last but not least try recycling the power on the tv. Unplug for 10 seconds then plug back in. happens a lot with cable boxes, recievers, and tv's from time to time.
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!
