It slowly quiets down after a good while, but one thing that remains constant is pretty nasty buzzing that I'm not sure was there or was as bad before. I've also noticed that the tv gets a bit hotter than it used to. I've had no other issues with the set other than this. I could just be a little paranoid, but any help would be much appreciated.
Could be the power supply board. I hope you find a solution. The 101FD is a great panel and IMO would be worth fixing.

I'm worried that if it is something like the power supply, that it's going to cost a fortune in order to get it fixed.

I believe that it comes down to 2 options.

Option A. Verify that it is the power supply board that is failing and find a used power supply board and install it yourself or by a knowledgeable friend.

Option B. Find 1 or 2 reputable Pioneer plasma service centres and get them to diagnose and quote you a price (parts and labour) and go with the lowest quote.

Note: This is why I purchased a used power supply board for my Pro-111FD online a couple of years ago just in case mine goes bad. However, my Kuro was manufactured in January 2009 pre press release of Pioneers exit from the flat panel business (February 2009), and sometimes I speculate that is why my Kuro is still alive after much use.

All the best to you in finding a solution.
