The noisy sound is not a good sign as it means that there's something wrong with the lens alignment mechanism. I suggest you take it for a service since the cam is only 3 months old and still under warrany

Sai.

When I take a flash photo in certain lighting (most recently a dance in our town hall) I get white circles all over the picture - presumably some kind of reflection.


Those are dust particles in the air reflecting the flash from the camera. This happens on point and shoot cameras because the flash is almost in line with the lens.

Flash will not fire on Canon SD780 IS Elph


The flash circuit is defective. As it's only a couple weeks old, recommend just exchanging it for another from your place of purchase. You shouldn't be attempting repair while its under warranty.

MY S2-IS WON'T TAKE PICTURES OUTSIDE THEY ARE WASHED OUT, WHITE


the image is all white or has lines through it.Definitely sounds like a repair issue, and has been a previous problem with the camera in the past. There is a defect in the sensor of the camera, and happens quite frequently in this model. I would try and contact Canon about it, and see if they'll repair it for free. If not, its probably going to cost more than the camera is worth to repair it. Good luck, and if anything you can upgrade to the S5, a good camera without the sensor issue.

White circles appear on the image. Why is That?


When shooting with flash in a location where there are many suspended particles, such as in a dusty area or on a snowy day, the image may contain white circles as shown in the picture below. Why does this happen? If the flash fires when a suspended particle floats right in front of the lens, the reflection of the flash from the particle appears more intensely than that of the subject, as the particle is much closer to the lens than the subject. Therefore, the reflection of the flash turns out in the image and causes an effect such as that shown in the sample image above. The closer the lens and strobe are located, allowing suspended particles to be exposed to more light, the more frequently this effect can occur. How can I avoid this effect? Ideally, it is best to shoot in locations where there are very few suspended particles. If not, you can use following method to prevent this effect. a) Avoid using flash by lighting the area as much as possible. b) If your camera has a zoom function, shoot at a wide angle. c) If you can attach an external flash, use the external flash to distance the flash from the lens.
