The jack on the guitars is a stereo type jack. The "ring" contact actually is connected to the battery and whenh the PLUG is inserted FULLY it coonects the ring contact of thee jack to the slkeeve contact of the jack which completes the circuit to turn on the battery. Hence while insertying the plug you will firsst get a snap as the tip of the plug ties to the ground of the guitar which is floating and picks up hum. Next the tip will touch the battery connection and get a snap. Finally when fully inserted both the battery is connected as well as the audio.
SOME guitars, especially those with tuners built inj will try tio fire up when the tip (audio) touches the battery cinnection. This may cycle and create the repetitive sound as it tries to start.

You need to ground the recorder. Use a WYE connector to get access to the barrel of the guitar cable and find a good ground on a three wire cord wall receptacle. You don't say what model recorder you have which would have been helpful to us. We are surrounded by electric and magnetic fields and typically you can pick up 10 volts AC (with no real current) just as an antenna from the building wiring. Many music devices that run on "wall wart" power adapters have this problem. Also keep guitar away from wall warts as they emit strong magnetic fields for those that use conventional transformers.

Many try to use poor quality guitar cables and have the problem. The sleeve of the guitar cable plug turns on the battery in the guitar. Always loop the guitar cable through your belt or the guitar strap to avoid the cable wisting the plug in the guitar causing noise and WEAR that wears the plug sleeve to the point it no longer will activate the guitar.
