I may be wrong, but I think some warranties end when a predetermined amount has been paid out by the company providing the warranty. I would think that the cost of replacing the panel might reach that amount and end your coverage.
Since they have replaced the panel, they are basically saying the TV is now in good working condition. That being said, would they sell you another warranty?
Edit: Here's the language from a popular warranty provider.
For replacement payments: You are covered up to the maximum value you paid for the item. Once we pay out that amount, your Protection Plan is considered fulfilled. If you would like coverage on your new item, you need to purchase a new warranty for it.
For Repairs: The Protection Plan is good for multiple repairs, up to the maximum value of your item. Once the cost of repairs meets the full purchase price of the item, your Protection Plan is considered fulfilled.Edited by ferl - 3/4/13 at 5:56pm
