What's wrong with this picture?

(besides the ridiculous amount of cords sticking out everywhere and the messy mantle)

See that monster of a tv in the background?
It quit working yesterday.
Shut off.
From what I have been reading, It's the lamp.
LOTS AND LOTS of people are having lamp issues.
What's up with that, Samsung?
We ordered the lamp.
It better work tomorrow.
Cuz if I miss the Big Brother premiere......I won't be happy.
The tv is not even two years old.
I've got bras older than that and guess what??
So now I am stuck watching my soap on that teeny tiny t.v. you see up on the mantle.
It's tiny BUT IT WORKS.
It's a VIZIO, by the way.
We have had it far longer than two years too.
Take note Samsung.

It's funny that you mention that because we just ordered a lamp for our tv too. Why? It's three years old and it's got to be nearly done. (Knock on wood it still looks great!) My husband said that most lamps don't last more than a year.

How awful! We don't have a flat screen TV just a few of the old big televisions. But once we are able to afford one I will try to avoid that brand! I hope it starts working soon for you.

Haha! The lamp on our TV was EXPENSIVE. Hopefully it's not as bad to replace yours. Best of luck!

Too funny! Love the way you expressed yourself to Samsung! Good luck Girl! :)

We are so having lamp issue with our t.v. also. My husband wants to fix it and then sell it. Have you seen the Big Brother site I am helping out with? I can send you a link later on today. I am so ready for it.

Here is the link if you want to check out this site.

I am a co author on it.

I'll take note on the Samsung....still waiting for one of our moldy oldies to kick the bucket. But watch....we'll end up moving another moldy oldie in from the garage to the house if that's the one that goes first.

I also will take note on the Vizio.

Love the bra comment!

Ok knocking on wood, please oh please don't happen to us :) I would have to kidnap the boys t.v. can't miss big brother, I've been waiting for it to come back! Yeah

Fingers crossed it comes soon! ;)

Ahh! Big brother fan too??? I knew I loved your blog!!!

AAhh, I hate Samsung! Every Samsung cell phone I've had have broken within the first year. My husband's grandma's microwave is a Samsung, and it has shorted out. We also have a Samsung 46" TV, and I don't have high hopes for it (although it is still working 6 mos later)!

That's horrible!! What's the point in buying a big, nice tv when they don't even last and you have to replace stuff on them in less than two years!

I hope it gets there before Big Brother--of all times for your tv to go out!!

We had the exact same thing happen to our year old Mitsuibishi about two months ago. After paying all that money for top of the line you would think the lamp would last longer than that. We, too, went out and bought a new t.v. that night, for the other living room, but temporarily used it in our family room; it was sad that I could barely see the 32 inch...did it work when you got the new lamp?
