You might have warranty coverage issues if you bought it from an unauthorized dealer, but I doubt it unless the set was previously sold, a refurb, or something else fishy. These are questions for your dealer and Pioneer, however.

Bruzzi,

Really dumb question, but I am now paranoid after taking out a second mortgage on my new TC-P65V10 Panny. In your instructions, you say to hold down the {VOL -} key on the plasma (along with the info key on the remote) to invoke the service menu. Lastly, you have a warning NOT to touch the {VOL +/-} keys at all (what your instructions said to do in the fist place). What am I missing?:huh::help:

To check the hours used on your Philips TV you have to go in the service menu. To enter service-menu type:
062596

Be careful NOT to change anything in the service-menu. Entering service menu would void the warranty, but I was glad I checked my new 37PFL9604 anyway: it already had 3400 hours on it :eek:
Of-course I had it replaced by a new one, but if I hadn't checked it...
