.....i come up with some kooky ideas. is it feasible (and/or worth the time) to purchase something like a pioneer kuro with a cracked screen (and no other issues) for a few hundred dollars and have it repaired for a few hundred more? would i be able to get a warranty after it's fixed? or is this idea as ludicrous as cosmo kramer's michigan 10 cent deposit theory?

I doubt it would only be a few hundred to replace a plasma panel. That is the most expensive part on most displays now.

The cost of the new panel alone is about $1,400 and labor would probably run around $500. Then after it's installed, you may find that when the screen got damaged it also shorted out one or more of the associated video boards and the TV still doesn't work.

i figured as much. i just didn't know how much it would cost for a new panel. you would think that the people selling these on ebay would've had a warranty, unless they got suckered in with the same thinking i did.
