Hi Joe,

I have not heard of this unit emitting a high pitch before.  When you remove the batteries does the noise stop?  Have you changed the batteries, also ensuring that you are using a good quality alkaline battery?  We do not recommend a rechargeable, store brand, or heavy duty battery.

If you have tried this and you have owned the unit less than 1 year please contact our phone support at 877-221-1252 for warranty service.

Hi Official Rep,
When I take the batteries out the noise goes away.  The batteries are brand new Duracell 1.572vdc all 3.  I got this as a Christmas gift and received it Jan 6 2016.
