I posted a while back that i had come across a problem with the plastic screen filter on the XDE in the way that pinkish marks had started appearing in the form of blotches and crayon like marks that could be seen as the reflection from the window behind us showed them up. The effect was to the left side of the screen and i reported it to Pioneer to ask if this was normal but they told me to contact the nearest service centre to get it checked out. They came and took it away and contacted me a 2 weeks later to say that it was working within spec. The marks where in a small area to the left side and not really noticeable, only when the screen was switched off, so i got the screen back. Well as 2 weeks passed the problem got a lot worse, marks and blotches were appearing all other the screen and starting to be seen even when the screen was on during the daytime. I then contacted the retailer to say that the problem was a lot worse and now unacceptable, so he got the service centre to pick it up again. A week later they said that Pioneer say that it is working within spec, i contacted the retailer and demanded something was done as it is a fault. He said that the he would contact the Pio tech engineer to come and look at the screen but they where having trouble getting a date from Pioneer. It has been 3 weeks and still no phone call, i'm really P---ed off as i have been without it for so long. Does anyone know what i can do about this, is there a time limit as to how long they can keep the plasma? I have posted pics of the problem below for you to look at and i definitely don't believe that this is within spec and is a fault with the filter! What do you think? What can/should i do about this? Thanks for reading, i know its a bit long. Regards. Dr.
