Question about Panasonic TH-42PD50U 42 in. Plasma EDTV

Panasonic TH-42PD50U 42 in. EDTV Plasma Television - Broken Screen

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

    Hi Kevin, the comments posted about a broken plasma screen points that
    nothing can be done except to sell the tv for parts. Which method will
    be most effective to sell it?

    After trying to sell it for parts in eBay with no one interested, one
    guy emailed me interested in buying the remote control and the pedestal

    Do you think it is a good deal or should I wait for someone interest in the whole package instead.

If you purchased it with a warranty, you may be able to get Panasonic to repair it. Check your warranty to get the conditions for returning it. The "new" Circuit City is operating. I do not believe they will honor purchases under the "old" Circuit City. However you can ask at
