Bummer. This is one instance where I'd b*tch and moan at my agent until they coughed up for a new window, because once the grid lines get scratched in handling, they're toast.
I assume the original problem is easy to spot; i.e. the grid lines are either working or they're not, right? If the break(*) are _very_ tiny, they can be touched up with conductive paint, although I've never had much luck trying to repaint more than a millimeter or two of missing grid line and actually having it work again afterwards.
