Question

am I doomed? LN-T5271F

I bought a samsung LN-T5271F back in Feb 2008, in the past couple of months it's started doing black horizontal lines, with a flickering picture along the right half of the screen. I called samsung and they contacted the local tech to come out. When they called the local company called the first thing the girl asked was did I have an extended warranty, to which I answered no. she said to try to call samsung and see if i can buy the extended warranty because otherwise the new part (she thinks its the panel from what i described) is over $1200...They don't even want to send over a tech to actually LOOK at the TV to make sure it is what they think it is... After 3 years is Samsung really going to let me buy an extended warranty? Should I even bother? Or should I just start looking for a new TV?
