If the battery is old, consider replacing it with a new one.

This is a common problem, the solution is actually called the "Treo Buzz Fix".
Earlier models of the Treo 600 had an unshielded cable that connects the battery to the main board. This cable causes loud buzzing and interference on the Treo.
