This is fairly normal for a plasma TV. If you can't hear it while watching regular program material at a comfortable volume level, I wouldn't worry about it. I don't think there's any need to call Panasonic for a replacement, which might very well have the same buzz.
It becomes a more serious problem if you live at a high altitudesay, above 2500 to 5000 feet, depending on the modelwhere lowered atmospheric pressure can cause the plasma to run hotter and emit a loud buzz as well as increased fan noise. In this case, you need to find a plasma that has been rated for high-altitude operation. If you live at a high altitude, go to a dealer in your area and see if the plasma TVs in the showroom are buzzingor perhaps the dealer doesn't carry plasma TVs for just this reason. In this case, an LCD TV might be a better option.
