hum from new vcr/dvd combo

Hi all,
I just got a new Sony VCR/DVD combo. I will be able to transfer my VHS tapes onto DVDs with this.....although it will probably take me years to figure out how.
Anyhow.....I'm always hearing a soft hum from the machine. Is this normal? Thanks!

Any takers?
Actually, the hum isn't so soft. It's really irritating.

We had the same problem. Turned out that it was constantly searching for a signal to set the dvd/vcr clock. Set the clock manually, and the humming went away. Hope that helps.
