How did the crack get there? There are dozens of reports from owners where their Samsung panel spontaneously cracked on it's own while watching TV.
Is it still under the manufacturer's warranty? If so, file a claim, If it's beyond the one year warranty, did you buy it using a credit card that adds one year to the manufacturer warranty? If not, and you're on the hook for repairs, then the tech is correct in that it's not worth the expense to have the panel replaced.
