    I think you'll find it's normal.

    All sets have a faint buzz when ambilight is on.
    Compared to the rattle from a similar-sized CRT TV it should be very weak.
    When you hear it when seated, with the audio on, you could consider complaining.
    But when you only hear it standing next to the set, without audio, there is little to worry about.

    Go into the Ambilight settings and set it to 'relaxed' (I think) This setting is less intense and allows it to run quieter.
