I had the same problem with mine, LG techs came out to my place and upgraded the software and the problem went away. I had mine for nearly a year when it started, supposedly is it quite common. Anyway, dont worry too much about it as easily fixed. I have been very happy with my TV and have used it everyday for 16 months. Just want a higher resolution TV now.

Screen glitters when tv gets warm i have to put a fan faceing the screen

Only option is to install an internal fan to cool the plasma. This is caused by the extreme heat made by the plasma tvs. It is overheating.
