Question about Panasonic TH-42PD50U 42 in. Plasma EDTV
Hi, this used tv was stored for 3 weeks in perfect working condition in my house car garage and its plasma screen developed a long crack in a horizontal zig-zag line going from left to right at about 4 inches from the bottom. Apparently the excesive heat developed inside the garage in Orlando, Florida in these days caused the cracking. Or maybe a misshandling when packaging it in other tv carton box where a new 50 inches Panasonic just purchased came.
Now it does not work -- no picture or sound, only a buzzing sound comes from the inside circuitry when turned on. Its pilot light turns red - never green.
I understsnd it needs a new plasma screen which is very expensive - more than $1000.
What do you recommend with it? Can a used screen be procured? Better sell for parts?Where to sell? I tried in eBay with no avail...
Please bring me a hand.
Thanks, Cesar Agostini-Chapel
