I also have white dots AND my TV won't turn on

I just started reading all these posts about the white dots and TV not turning on. Unfortunately I have both problems. We spoke to Samsung customer service last night the rep on the phone said it would be repaired free of charge. Today a tech calls and confirms our appt for Saturday but says that it's out of warranty and we will charged. The tech is telling us it's the light bulb. We replaced the bulb in November, 2011 so I don't think it's the bulb because why does the TV try to turn on and we see lights and it keeps clicking but never turns also to turn it off completely we have to unplug it. My TV is an HLT6176sx/xaa. I don't think an expensive TV such as this should only last a few years. I'm very disappointed.
