Row of Pixels Out

I have a PRO-111FD that has a single row of pixels out. I recently took it to a repair shop to try to get it fixed. They told me one of the chips on the buffer is burned. They said for this particular model of Pioneer plasma, the buffer is permanently attached to the panel, so the whole panel would have to be replaced. They said it would be $800 plus labor, then immediately tried to sell me a new TV. When I went to retrieve my TV yesterday, I asked them if they even opened it up. They said no, and that they just hooked up a device and ran some software to test it. I found that kinda strange that they wouldn't even open it up to see if there was a loose connection or something obvious.

Anyways, I don't know much about what goes on inside of this TV, so can anyone tell me if what they said makes sense?

You can download the service manual here. It looks to me like Pioneer refers to its buffer boards as Scan A and Scan B. The two vertically mounted boards all the way to the left.

I don't see any ribbon cables so they could be right that they are not replaceable.
Here's a video with back off.

You can scoop up a 111fd for a couple of hundred bucks on craigslist and use your current set as a spare for parts if needed.
