He may not have explained himself well.

Anything can be replaced on any TV, he probably meant that it will not be worth repairing.
These guys are used to customers getting 500 dollar labor and parts invoices, and having customers freak out and just dump the TV, maybe he thought you were going to use him for a dump run?///
I dont know but maybe???

Call and get another estimate. There are many who will give free or 50.00 quotes, and tell you what it will take to fix.

Hope that helps,

    Thats not a bad price considering if you had your tv repaired it would probably cost upwards of a couple hundred.

    I might go ahead and get that second estimate, and if its only 200, get it fixed, sell it on ebay or craigs list for 400. now your Plasma cost 400!

Your TV is overheating.. easiest remedy is to point a fan at the back of the TV or... clean the inside of the TV, Im sure its full of dust and stuff... this prevents air circulation inside the TV thus creating more heat...

I repair a lot of these and a average tv lasts like 3 years . It is not like the old days. I suspect the lamp or fans or therm protector.

I would call a local tv shop see what they charge for estimate it might be worth his estimate to find out what it is.

I have a 6 year old Samsung PCJ522R 52" TV.

It sounds like at least one of 3 "IHVT",s popped. in short, a "IHVT" is a high voltage transformer. It will have to be replaced along with any other parts that were damaged in the process.
They do produce a strong odor when they pop!!

It is repairable but at a price. there is a good chance that parts will have to be ordered.

you might consider buying a new LCD HDTV instead of fixing this one.
