Yes, it's a common problem on some of the new Nano's. You really hear the noise when the backlight comes on. It's "another" video screen problem/flaw. They went from cracked screens with the 1G Nano to "Whining" backlights on the 2G. There was even a post on Apples Web site describing this problem, but I think Apple made it disappear...

*Sigh*

I'm not sure if Apple has a fix for it. I honestly think the only thing you can do is replace/exchange it. I'm in the market as well for a new iPod, and was thinking about the 8GB Nano. Looks like I might get the 30 Gig instead, since Apple still doesn't have this fixed.

Does anyone else on MacRumors have any suggestions?

You can exchange it, but if you choose to replace it (and don't need to right away) you might try waiting until the new iPods are released.

As if you didn't know that already :p

Meh, I don't think a substantial change is coming for the Nanos.
