I have a Maverick display that has 3 or 4 adjacent vertical lines missing. I replaced it with a new one (ouch), but that solved the problem (yay). I was wondering if the existing display is of any use? Worth keeping on hand for the PCB part of it? Worth selling to someone who does have the skill to help recoup the $450? Toss? Practice soldering?

I had a similar condition DMD that I sold to a Pinsider. Some people have "projects" they use these for. Offer it up for sale at a reasonable price. Someone may want it.

Mostly working DMD is MUCH better than a dead DMD. Hang onto it, you never know if you find a cheap machine with a dead one, or a pinsider who needs a quick fix, or heaven forbid your new one dies in a year...

I never toss boards unless I've stripped them to the point of being good for nothing but a spaghetti strainer.

Hang on to it, Homepin won't have a replacement until 2014. It should get you through any one-off failures if that happens.

Let me know if you decide to sell and price
