The light box is the entire chassis and CRTs. It is removable to make many repairs and troubleshooting easier. Removing it to the shop allows more resources to be devoted to it to make a more efficient repair. $350 is likely a rather typical repair cost, but it varies with location and the nature of the problem.

Generally, when a set is completely dead, it is either a problem in the main power supply or in the standby supply or microprocessor area. It is unlikely that a fuse would blow without some other problem existing in the set.

How would I know what another servicer is going to include in his services? Ask the service provider what the possible costs may be. There is really no way for anyone to be specific until the set is evaluated. If I was doing it, the local service call rate would be $75 to estimate it, and the repairs could be anywhere from around $200 to not worth fixing, depending on what is found. My guess is that anything related to the microprocessor will be much more, if the parts are available. It could be just a dead regulator in the PS, however. No way to know until you get into it.
