Phal leaf problem

I thought I had already posted this but I can't find my previous post. So here goes...

I've had this Phal for about 4 years and it is just now blooming again since the first time. I discovered scale on it and removed all that I could see. Is this leaf problem associated with the scale infestation or is it a warning of bigger problems?

The leaf shown has the most of these and only 1 or 2 other leaves show a small patch of this stuff. It is not sticky to the touch, it is hard and lumpy feeling. It does not ooze or anything when penetrated.

That looks like some heat/sun damage. Its harmless.

Thanks Jane, I'll have to relocate it.

The key is to keep the light high enough to get good growth and flowers without burning the leaves. Not so easy, I'm forever burning the leaves.
