Default Hitec Digital Servo making SOS noises..!!!

Hey guys,

I bought a used HS-5945MG Hitec servo. It makes a huming/static noise when moving or centering. The servo is digital.. Does this matter? Do digitals makes these noises..

Is this right? Will it ruin my receiver?

I cleaned and lubed the gears...still the noise is still there.

Any help would be great...

Thanks

This is normal for digital servos. There is nothing wrong with the servo.

Yes, digital servos do make a high pitch electronic sound. All sounds to be ok with your servo.
