Offhand the vibrating from the speakers occurring (and getting worse over halfway up on the volume setting) is common and due to the small cones of the built in speakers starting to deteriorate- which is normal as they use foam and paper, which dries up and rots. To fix the set would require disassembly of the TV and replacement of the speakers- which is on average a $250 repair (not what I would consider cost effective on an 8 year old 42" TV). What I would suggest as a more cost-effective workaround, is to purchase an external soundbar (which can be found for about half of what the TV cost to repair) and connect it to the "Audio Output" jacks on the TV- then in the Panasonic MENU "Shut off" the internal speakers, and simply workaround the problem by using the soundbar to replace the TV's speakers.
