Strange... Sounds like your fans are running slower than you're used to.
The soft whine after warm-up is probably the color wheel adjusting speed to your input source (50hz/60hz); but you're likely noticing it more than before due to the quieter fans. Have you changed lamp power modes by any chance? (Normal or SmartEco down to Eco perhaps? Fans are much quieter in Eco). Are you using 3D of late - or a new input (such as the second HDMI in) that you weren't using before? (Each input has it's own settings so it's possible a new input might be using another preset that's on 'Eco' lamp power, lowering the pitch of your fans.)
So check your Lamp Power setting (and double-check that High-Altitude mode is off while you're at it, just to be certain).
If none of the above, then definitely contact support and query it.
