Yeah... no.

I got my estimate for what it would cost to repair my old TV last night: $1,024 plus tax and the $95 I've already spent on having it diagnosed.  I paid $1,000 for the TV and a receiver and a set of speakers and a sub in the first place.

Yeah... no.

I've already ordered a new TV anyway.  It's a lovely 55" Samsung LED LCD.  I will have it next Tuesday.  Admittedly, it was a bit more than a thousand bucks.  (Anyone want a broken 52" DLP?)

I might pay to have you ship it to me in Nebraska. A DLP chip could make an awfully fun project. What did they say was wrong with it, exactly?

It needs a new bulb and the light engine died. Everything else should be working fine.
