I've received a Hitachi TRK-9100E, it's a very smart looking BB with a nice sound and is a reassuring weight for it's size.

However.......................it makes a noise I'm not familiar with. The negative part of was I was told is 'tape deck needs some work' and that's all I knew - no more, no less.
Visually, I can see there is no movement from the head section when Play is pressed but I'll put that aside for now unless a forum member can link this problem to my main concern which is that the BB makes a noise. Here's the noise:
The BB makes this noise all the time it is plugged into the mains.
Selecting 'Tape/Off' makes no difference, if a mains supply is connected the noise persists.
The intensity/loudness varies slightly/fluctuates a little.
The intensity/loudness remains the same regardless of Function selected.
The noise seems to originate from the lower part of the main body.
The sound does not emit from the speakers.
The intensity/loudness remains the same regardless of Volume level chosen.
It sounds louder in the vid than it actually is but is still a very noticeable distraction.
It sounds...'metallic'/'mechanical' as if something is turning and grating.
The radio can still be heard above this noise whilst the Volume is comfortable but I'll not be using the BB until this is fixed to prevent damage.
Can anyone shed some light on this for me, please?
Could this be something I can fix or am I facing doom and gloom?
