Offhand, can you pls try and do a reset. This model don't have a reset button, but you can try removing the batteries for say an hour or so. The idea is to reset the microprocessor if the problem is software/firmware. Preset/memory would be erased as well as any personalized settings if you do this. But the unit will be back to factory default.
If the reset doesn't work, then your particular version/model has a slight offset resulting to the "humming sound". This is a known problem and many in the "ham" world have written corrective procedures which would require an insulated tuning/alignment screwdriver or at the very least a jewellers screwdriver and doing a bit of alignment by "ear"
If you are adventurous to give this a try, pls post back. Otherwise your best bet would be to seek the services of a qualified ham radio technician.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
Thank you for using FixYa.

SOURCE: Problem with FM reception.
Sony radios of this era had notorious capacitor problems.... also
several other brands were affected. These capacitors were underrated
and the technology to make them was not at it's best back then. The
cure is to replace the capacitors on the board with new electrolytics.
About 28 of them need to be replaced but the big problem is to find
someone to do this. the original capacitors are surface mount and must
be removed and new radial lead caps put in their place, some are rather
tough to get at and the new ones have to be placed carefully. My SONY
ICF-SW7600 now works as new and maybe even better!
I have done this myself as I have skills working with surface mount capacitors. I offer my services to those who cannot find service for their radios. Please email me for details, I am not into making bucks on this, I just want to see these radios kept working and bringing enjoyment to their owners.
