When we turn on the TV it tkakes about 2 minutes for the picture to come on. When the picture does come on it has vertical lines acorss the whole picture. Also cannot change channel and volume by remote or on the TV.
I have the same problem on my sony LCD rear projection TV. I turn it on and there are vertical lines of varying colors across the screen, no sound, the only thing the tv responds to from local or remote controls are the power button and the Up arrow on the remote, which is used to trigger a factory reset sequence (according to the manual). Reset doesn't help. The bars slowly start to go away on the screen and usually the TV works the next day. It'll work for a few days a flake out again.

Yes, loud pop sound was broken lamp in tv, replacement of lamp will fix tv problem. Lamp replacement procedure is easy and would be written in user manual. Please buy Sony original lamp for good picture in tv. Thanks.
This is caused by a failure of the optical block of your TV. The only way to fix the issue is to replace the whole optical block which is very expensive ($1000+) and time consuming (need to take whole TV apart to replace the part).
The optical block in your model had inherent issues and there is currently a class action lawsuit pending against Sony for this issue. Up to date information reguarding the lawsuit can be found here: http://www.sonya20tvclassaction.com/main/home.sfx
Some of these models have this problem from production. I would recommend to contact SONY and tell them the problem they may be able to fix your TV at no cost, since some of their Light engines have a recall but I'm not sure if your model number is one of those.
If you want to fix the TV yourself you need to replace the light engine and that requires advanced skills for this product
