D850 - audio static / stuttering during video recording


This only happened recently, but looks to be something messed up with my onboard mic on the D850 - this is what the menu looks like in a silent room. It's showing full bars of audio on the right channel?

When I playback the recorded file it sounds like a large static noise on the video -


Any help? I know I'm supposed to buy an external mic but for a short clip every week or two whilst on my travels I don't want to carry around a big mic with me. Even trying to record my family playing table tennis it's just awful.

Could this be affecting anything else within the camera? Should I send in for warranty?

Could resetting the entire camera help?

Edit - I tried a cheap skype microphone and the issue was fixed - how easy is it to get the internal mic repaired?
