TV was no for several hours last evening and all of a suddent, picture went blank, there was no sound and LCD light was flashing. Dealer said it was the lamp which is the guts of the TV and since the lamp is really the entire front of the TV, the cost of replacing was too high. Any thoughts?

I recently had a proview television delivered to my home from rent-a-center they said they lost the remote and brought it any way. Need I remin you this was suppose to be a replacement television from the last television we got that only lasted a week and then blew out. Now they did not explian much just said they don't have tghe remote about an hour after they left the tv went blank and we have no remote or power button. Tried looking it up on the internet the procedure to turn it on because I honestly just don't know and can't get no answer. Is there somebody out there that can explian how this television works?
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!
Sounds like the circuit board may need to be replaced. Mine did a similiar thing only my picture turned upside down, screen went blank yet had good voice. Samsung tech said the 2 circuit boards were bad and had to be replaced at a cost of $780 in parts plus labor. I bought a new LCD TV, not Samsung.
