Thunder Flies behind lcd Screen

I've got 5 thunder flies stuck behind my lcd screen between the back light and it's doing my head in. Thinking of going for a Panasonic TX-P42G10B. Do plasmas suffer from thunder flies?

I've got a couple of thunderflies trapped in my computer LCD but I've had the panny plasma for over a year now without any problem.

Do you mean Fruit Flies - the tiny ones that hang around your home brew wine?

They are really annoying, my tomato plants attract them.

Has anyone else suffered with this problem on a plasma?

Er.. wouldn't it be slightly cheaper to, say, get them out? If you can't do it yourself, I'm sure a local repair man/woman would do it for less than £50.

Been in contact with Sharp technical and to remove them would damage the panel by the way it is designed, which means a replacement panel. I was told it would be cheaper to replace the set.
