I went checking in stores today to find if they had heard anything about when the Philips 32PW9616 would be released in Sweden. They did not know, but I found some interesting stuff. One 36PW9525 and one 36PW9765, both on which the CRT sticker had been obscured with the chassis sticker, confirming the practice - the 36PW9525 had the letter R at the end, not M A 29", 4:3 format set (presumably a 29PT5506) with what appeared to be a non-Philips CRT, probably a Quintrix F A 32PW9576 which had a Philips CRT, but where the entire CRT was shifted to the left by 1/2" - I do not know how that could even happen, but obviously it had I also asked a salesman if he knew of the CRT issues in Philips sets and he said Philips CE Sweden had sent out a statement a pair of weeks ago regarding the use of Panasonic CRT's (he spontaneously mentioned Panasonic before I did, so I think he was telling the truth). According to him, Philips stated a shortage as the cause. This whole thing seems to point towards the possibility various Philips models are affected and that it might actually vary from batch to batch.
