Getting my TV repaired

Well, I have a TV in the shop for repairs. It's a 42" Insignia. I figure it'd be cheaper than replacing it, and it's only been used for about 2 years, and sitting in the basement for 2 years. Besides, I think I'm buying another anyways, then I'll have 2 digital TV's. Before I took it in, I talked to the tech and described the problem, and he said about $150 to get it fixed. So, a week ago (monday) I dropped it off, he said 2 days and he'd look at it. Come Saturday no word from the TV tech, so I went to the shop to see what's up with my TV. Originally he said the part would cost $50-$90 + his fees = up to $150, now he says he orders a transistor from online. What do you think, it sounds like it's going to be a lot cheaper then originally quoted, or is it the $150 + the transistor? hmm, I should have asked, but I assumed that since he didn't call me about it then it's just the transistor that needs replacing.
