Why does my camera screech? It's kind of freaky.?

Sometimes, when I get scared at night, I record myself talking, because hearing my voice played back is kind of comforting.

When I take videos at night, there is always an audible screeching sound in the background of the video. It sounds sort of like a siren, but it it scratchier, and it fluctuates more. My camera is in good shape, and this only appears in videos I take at night. It's starting to freak me out a little. Is there a logical explanation for this?

    This may or may not be the problem, hope it helps!

    Your camera may have a small speaker built in to monitor the audio. If you turn the internal volume all the way down it should fix the screeching(feedback).
