Also here is also a handy test for you, Have you tried Sound Recorder within your computer. I am saying this since this is another way to test your Microphone. If you are puzzled on where Sound Recorder is on your computer, then follow this info. Record audio with Sound Recorder Then run a test in there, If it don't work at all, come back here.

things can cause static.
If you have your speakers turned up to high it will give you feedback causing
distortion and static. Best to use headphones when recording.

between the two it will cause distortion and static.

1) if you are using the PC sound card to record this is where your hiss is coming from. you need to get a recording card that has low noise or some other recording USB input device to get CD quality recordings
2) if you have to use your PC sound card check your PC volume level for line in, don't let it get high or it will distort. you will have to experiment with the MD4 levels and PC sound card level to find a good middle ground with low hiss and no distortion

Hi that all sounds to me to be a fairly classic "Electret" Mic problem.
I have seen .. lol.. or rather, heard it, a few times B4.. the "Frying" sound you hear is the faulty electronics in the Electret microphone..
I would try replacing the Mic, if you can get one the same size, it shouldn't be too hard to Open the camera up, unsolder the old Mic, & replace it. There are really only a few standard Electret Mic inserts...
As an aside, sometimes it can simply be a bad solder joints to the wires on the actual mic itself, ya may wanna try good reflow/resolder first B4 ya replace.. This sometimes is all it requires...
