It does sound like your lamp is bad. they build a internal resistance and they will get to the point, that it will not come on at all.

Your lamp needs changed, after removing the lamp it might still, look good, but it is bad. After a while the bulb builds up a internal resistance, and it makes the TV hard to start, and then it gets to the point where it will not come on at all. You can go to www.partstore.com and get a new lamp, and that should take care of your problem.
