The 4 Plasma TV Repair Information
The Plasma Display Element On A Plasma TV
Running your plasma television on the peak contrast setting will significantly reduce the life of the product as well as cause the plasma to dim much faster. The cost of replacing the display screen will be close to the cost of a new TV, if not more. The life of the plasma display itself is usually determined by half-life of the phosphors.
The Entire Power Supply Board
Taking out the plate was easy enough and fetching the board required long pliers to press a little the two plastic holders that held the board in place.

If you know the parts are bad you might be able to cut off the part and then remove the pins with a hot soldering Iron.
