The squeal may be coming from the spindle of the reel motors.

You can try applying a drop of lubricating oil to the center of each spindle to see if that helps stop the squealing.

Worked fine until put the auxiliary microphone on it.
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
Would too much volumn do that.
Camera and Video Technician: Pete, Electronic Engineer replied 3 months ago

Is the squeal coming from the video camera itself, or is it coming from the speakers?

Customer reply replied 3 months ago
Coming thru the speakers. On all videos taken while auxiliary microphone hooked up.
Camera and Video Technician: Pete, Electronic Engineer replied 3 months ago

Ok, then the volume level may be set too high - try reducing it, and if the squeal also reduces then you should use a lower volume setting.
