Same issue and the folks at the auto-skills center told me there was nothing to effectively fix it -- their two cents anyway.

If you can pin point the warpage and which way it needs to move to correct it. I've actually had some luck with a large hammer. It helped to be able to beat on it, put it on the machine, check it, beat on it some more, and repeat.
