So my 2 year old threw a domino at our tv and it put a "rock-chip" in it the size of a quarter, and it now has a 4-5" white bar across the middle of the 59" screen. I plan on buying a new tv today, so my question is what to do with the Samsung? Sell it to someone? Throw it away? Part it out?

Or add the Protection Plan Premier and get it fixed for $50.

Not only would that be dishonest, but premier with ADH only covers accidental damage to laptops and tablets/handhelds.

No, not "whatever" -- that's an adolescent response. It's called character and honesty. :rolleyes:

I would sell it at eBay. As a person who doing repairs I would appreciate the your step.

Yikes, I guess the "terrible twos" are aptly named.

P Smith, so you think that this is something that can be repaired where if someone buys it on ebay they can end up with a good deal?

I've been in search of similar case, when a panel was OK, but some components failed and I didn't able to find the chips - I end up buying a PCB from eBay.
Perhaps if OP is handy, he could dismantle the TV and sell internal boards separately instead of whole heavy TV.
