It seems that the plasma display panel is gone on my 6010. This will be confirmed in a few days. I also understand that it will cost $3k to replace it, if the component is even available. What a sad day. The panel is just exquisite. Plus, I paid $6500 back when I clearly did not have $6500 to spend.
I am servicing it through DirecTV's premier protection plan, which gets an attached piece of technology repaired or replaced in 3 days. If they cannot fix the component, flat panels included, they will replace it for a max of $2K or fair market value of the broken component.
So a question or 2. Any idea what FMV of that panel would be? What the heck is FMV for a 5-year old then-top-of-the-line panel?
And where would you start to look for a replacement panel? I don't mean to ask everyone to shop for me, but is Panny the way to go for a 60" plasma?
Thanks very much!
