K5 video hissing sound

I have a problem on my K5 on video mode: the only sound I can get is hiss! Actual sounds are incredibly muffled and it sounds like someone is blowing really hard into the microphone. I've tried using various external mics, to no avail. Does anybody else have this problem? Or could it be a defect on the camera that needs repairing? I've noticed that the Live View makes a kind of whirring noise when switched on - could this be the culprit

Please help!

A noise during live view is normal, as that's just shake reduction.

As for the noise, can you hear it when you play the video back in the camera, or is it only on your computer?

Thanks Adam

I realise the Live View noise is normal, I'm just wondering the microphone might be picking it up too much.

The hissing noise is audible both on playback on the camera and on the computer (Mac)

I have the same issue. Fairly loud hiss with muffled audio. When I turn the sound recording off in video settings - the recording is silent. So I think it is the mic picking it up/ or producing it....
Anyone able to help ???
I have recorded video before with no problems. There have been no updates (e.g.firmware) applied in between videos and I am using the same lens and SD card....
