Question about Minolta Maxxum 800si 35mm SLR Camera
The built-in flash of my Minolta 800SI generates some noise when lifting it up each time, and it can not stand firm in position - it drops to close position if camera lens facing down, but it functions if camera lens facing up.
Any insight on this?
The xeon tube actually moves as you zoom to a longer focal length, and it sounds like this is not happening, and this will produce noise like a buzzing sound, as any electric circiut will do if there is any interruption within that circiut.. As for not standing firm, I do agree with palmyman that it has received some slight damage, most likely by pulling up the flash head just a little too abruptly, and it has come adrift from its housing. I would advise expert repair.

This camera should not make any noise when you lift the flash head up as it is a manual system i.e. you have to physically lift it up,
It will make some noise as you zoom backward and forwards as it has a zoom motor for the flash head so the flash coverage is correct at different focal lengths.
If you are saying it is floppy then it is broken and needs to be looked at, if you carry on trying to use it, something may short out in the head and cause a loud bang and you camera will stop working.

Tips for a great answer:
vehicle speed: check wheel bearings lift vehicle and support it with jack stands grab the wheel at the 12 and 6 o'clock positions( to rule out steering linkage play) and wiggle in and out. A bad bearing that loud will have some play.
