What to do with my Hitachi 57G500?

I had a convergience chip go out in it. I bought a new chip (pretty cheap), but after I pulled the circuit board out, I cracked the board. A new board is way too much to put into this TV. It is 6 years old and in near perfect condition. I've never had any issues with it. I have since bought a smaller plasma, but still have this TV in the other room. I'm hoping someone will part theirs out or give it away. No luck for the first month. Any suggestions???

How much is the board? That "chip" wouldn't be this? (item #130355471304):

That was the chip that was bad. I bought a replacement, but when I removed the board that the chip is on, I cracked the board. I found the whole board for over $300. That is too much to put into a 6 year old TV. I'm still hoping someone tries to sell one.
