Question Broken screen on Panasonic P60ST60

Hi,

My 4 year old recently broke the screen on my beloved plasma: Panasonic P60ST60.

The crack is visible with naked eye. Also, the TV does not power on. The power LED flashes red when turned on. Also, I saw some white light flashes from behind the crack in the panel.

What is my best option at this point for this plasma TV?

I called several TV repair shops, and they all said they don't have replacement screens for plasma any more. In other words, it is junk.

Before taking it to recycling center, I just wanted to check if anyone has any other ideas?

Thanks in advance.
Uncas,

Unfortunately, it's garbage. Nobody repairs these any more. I had a similar experience with my 65" Panasonic plasma earlier this year - the 7 blinks of death and I called numerous places to try to get it repaired. No one would touch it - I was willing to spend say $500. Here's my thread:

Why Would I Not Purchase This LG 70UF7300 TV? (Sharp LC75N8000U Purchased)

Even 10 years ago, when most TVs could be repaired, it was almost never cost-effective if you have a cracked screen.

These days the screen is the TV, or at least the bulk of the cost of manufacturing. It might be cost effective to replace an internal board (if one can be sourced) but a new TV will be cheaper than a new screen. It might be possible to sell some of the Panasonic TV parts on eBay but the screen is only good for the recycling at the dump.
