Sony TRV460 exposure problem

I have a TRV-460 handcam which has just started to exhibit a strange problem, and i am trying to ascertain whether to bother fixing it or replace it. The Auto exposure seems to have stopped working. Out of Doors or in bright places, the picture is extremely overexposed, and needs to be adjusted manually. (Manual adjustment works ok) This problem exhibits on the LCD, and also on the captured video. Indoors, or in dimly lit areas, the exposure is ok, so i am assuming something is wrong with the light sensor? I have tried the "reset" button but this did not help. can anyone tell me if this a common problem and is it fairly cheap to repair? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Did you turn the exposure lock on? That would lock the iris so that it will not adjust for changes in lighting.

The noise is probably the motor running. As long as it doesn't appear on the footage, it's nothing to concern yourself about.
