Buzzing sound from dashboard, behind monitor

Received our MY LR at the end of March, first time here. Started noticing a strange buzzing noise coming from the dashboard, behind the monitor. Took the car to the SC and they said it was a normal sound, but now it is getting louder and is no longer drowned out by road noise, or music at an average volume. I've also sat in other MYs and the buzzing doesn't exist. I've noticed that the pitch of the buzzing changes if I press on the dashboard underneath the monitor. The sound is constant, charging or not, and is very noticeable just sitting in the car when parked with no music. Taking it back to the SC this week to have them check again. Any thoughts on what could be causing this noise?

Love the car, but the noise is driving me crazy and I should not have to blow my ears out with the music to drown out the noise.

I am having that same noise and it drives me crazy. I can not sit in my car without music now. Is this something mobile service can fix?

Having the exactly same issue now. It's intermittent, and the nearest repair shop is 3 hours away, so we'll see. How much did it cost to fix?

I just test drove a Model 3 with similar noise but much less pronounced coming from behind the touch screen. The sales person said it is probably a fan warming or cooling battery. He offered to sell me the car & it had 43 miles on it. I did not thinks so since this is Los Angeles and it was about 70 degrees outside. I noticed the sound the second I started the car and it never went away despite 30 minutes of driving. I had a model Y for 3 days and it made no such noise.
