    A while back I had posted on some cyan colored spots on the screen of my Pioneer SD532 that I now have learned is most likely due to phosphor burn on my red CRT tube. I have only had the TV since mid-March, don't know when it was manufactued though (anyone know how to find this out? Is it listed by the S/N?). How can a set this new, that has been calibrated via VE have a problem with phosphor burn already? Shouldn't this be covered under warranty still?

    This is a warranty issue ... unlike video game burn or channel bugs.
