So I've owned my TCP46ST30 for about 7-8 months so far. I believe I do have the brightness fluctuation issue, but not as severe as some as I don't notice it every single time, it just crops up at times, bugs me, then I forget about it.
However what has been occurring is the buzzing issue. Loud enough that I can hear it over the volume of the TV and a fan that was on in the other room. It does indeed fluctuate its noisiness depending on the brightness of the image being displayed, and if you stand right near the TV its quite evident. It doesn't happen constantly though, only every now and again does it crop up.
Question, has anyone done a swap / return with Panasonic directly? I'm obviously out of my retailers exchange period, but they did have a deal to up Panasonic's warranty to 3 years. I'm just wondering what the process is like / how much hassle I'm in for.
