You could try to sell the working parts, but boards that have been wet can suffer corrosion failure an indeterminate amount of time in the future. Hardly fair to sell them to anyone without notice of that.
The cost of a replacement panel is out of proportion to the cost of a whole new TV, and the same future problem with likely corrosion applies if you could find a good used panel anywhere.
No type of warranty applies to a set that has been water damaged.

. . . . the screen has MAJOR water damage . . . .
Because of the major water damage, it still has a marine application. . . . Boat Anchor!

You'd have to pre-soak it for a boat anchor, it might float for a while if you just tossed it overboard.

Strip it down and sell its parts is what'd I do.

even if you replaced the screen, you have to wonder why it was out there in the first place. I can think of 2 very real options, one is something else broke, and this was their lazy way to get rid of it, so once you replace the screen you may have to diagnose another problem. The other scenario is this TV was stolen, and dumped/stashed out there, either to avoid getting caught, or as a mean prank on someone. It may not hurt to contact your local police department and see if there are any reports of stolen TVs.

If it was your real TV, would you like someone (the finder) to report it and not just keep it and run off ? ?
