I actually saw a red "shimmer" across the top of my LG Plasma today for the first time.
I found an old thread here from 2008 that sounded like a similar problem. A couple people had swapped sets through warranty to fix the issue. One person mentioned just letting the set warm up though. I went back 15 minutes later, and sure enough, the problem was gone.
The million dollar question though: Is this a problem that's developing and may get worse? Or is this normal behavior that just never happened in the past, or I somehow missed it? (I've had the set for nearly a year now.)
It was a very faint set of red pixels, and you could barely see it in some light, but in other scenes it was much more noticeable. Needless to say, I didn't like it one bit. If it's a normal "warm up" problem, I can deal with that.
Edit: The thread I found earlier, some of the posts sounded like the "sparkles" may have been across most or all of the screen. Mine was definitely just on the top left, and a bit down the side. I'm curious what will happen tomorrow.
