The noise may just be the usual 'sensor floating about in a magnetic field' noise seen in all Pentax DSLR's:

If you are in movie mode, note that movie mode has a seperate shake reduction setting from regular image shooting. Select Movie in the [Rec Mode 4] menu and make sure SR is disabled there too.

Movie SR is electronic; you will therefore still hear a slight hum regardless, as the SR mechanism has to stay on to lock the sensor in place.
