Pan Cam V2 loud static noise randomly coming from speaker - will not stay online

I’ve run into something I haven’t seen before. One of my Pan Cam V2’s is making a loud scratchy noise randomly. At first I thought it might have been the motor on the base, or else the motor that drives the lens around, but when testing these, it’s not either one of them. I tried a few times to back into recent video history to see if I could locate when this is happening, but each time, the card became unreadable, even though I had fully formatted it an hour before. So I put in a new sd card, and it won’t even acknowledge there’s a card in there. When I went to insert the new sd card, I got an up close listen to the noise, and realized it’s static coming from the speaker in the camera. So how am I supposed to troubleshoot this? FW for this camera is up to date, All my Pan Cam V2’s are on the same version, none of the others have shown this behavior. And every time the lens focus changes I can hear static from the motor moving. The camera has not been dropped, it sits on my mantle. We haven’t had a fire in the fireplace in over a year. Has anyone else seen this before and what did you do about it?

Same. Had this OG Pan Cam V2 camera forever… Always been reliable.
Now will not stay online, constantly rebooting itself (I guess) and loud scratchy noise coming from playback. All started maybe a month or so ago.
Same with my Outdoor V3 inside and second Outdoor V3 camera w/lamp socket outside & newer- scratchy noise.
Noise is present no matter the condition. Using all plugged in, original Wyze cords and plugs.

Does all this mean older cameras have to be replaced within a few years? I chose Wyze for its economical value and use. I can’t recycle w/Wyze for credit because I believe all are at least 2yrs old.
