I get a buzzing sound

It once had this problem before and I fixed it but I cant remember how. Whenever i turn it on it makes a low buzzing sound then it shuts off. The lens opens up but closes once the buzzing stops. I figure since its been fixed before, it could be remedied again. Please help.

Re: I get a buzzing sound

Hello Rrosario35, This problem is related to the lens assembly. The camera will check if these work properly when it's being powered on. If something goes rong here it will turn off or display you some error messages. This problem occures when some of the lens mechanisms get out of place and jamms or damages other components. As the lens assembly is a very delicate mechanism I would suggest you to go back to the service center that fixed it the first time and ask them to check it. Don't try to power the camera on anymore because the lens assembly could be damaged further or beyound repair if the servo-motors are trying to alling the lens something jamms them and not allowing them to move properly. This will force the servo-motors and they could damage other components or themselves. It could be fixed, but don't force the camera to work anymore for the time being. Please post back if more informations are required.

Sony cybershot audio buzzing

I have the same problem, and cant seem to fix it. I know it has to do with the audio chatching the camera making the noise. Listen, take your camera and turn the function to take a video clip, then listen to your camera. Isnt it making the same noise as you hear on the video clip?

Turns on for 1/2 second and turns off

It sounds like the focus element inside the lens is stuck. This is usually either due to an impact knocking the elements out of alignment, or to sand/debris entering the focus motor's gear drive and preventing it from rotating. The buzzing sound you hear is the focus motor attempting to rotate, but buzzing up against some obstruction. When the lens extends, you hear a buzzing sound, and then the lens retracts - this is usually the cause of the issue. Unfortunately there is not much you can do externally to fix this problem. The camera will need to be taken apart and repaired by a professional or by the manufacturer. David Millier

SONY A350 when turned on and off makes loud vibrating sound

Hi, I have exactly the same problem. The vibrating sound happens when the camera is turned-on or off. It looks like the camera is auto-deploying the anti-dust functionality and the vibration tries to shake-off the dust on the sensor. But I tried cleaning up the insides.. no luck. Would appreciate any tips on resolving this issue.. thanks, KP

Camera lens stuck

See my other posts, which may be able to help in this case.
You may...may... be able to force the lens back into the track. The noise in this case sounds like it is off track....worth a try indeed.
The other can be that the gears are broken, and will have to be repaired or replaced.

Pentax Optio 50 Digital Camera Lens Error

Not really, it sounds like the lens has been bumped while it was extended. Unfortunately, the "buzz" you hear is the gears stripping one another. The only fix is to have the lens assembly replaced, which usually costs upwards of $200. I see this problem at least 3 times a week in my shop.

Stuck :(

My Kodak DX6440 did the same thing. After sending it to Kodak's third-party repair (as per Kodak), they called to say it was not fix-able. Kodak's response was "No parts available" and offered 10% off list price of a refurbished camera. ...Big sports ...Way to keep customer loyalty If you choose Kodak, the cameras are good but buy them knowing they are a disposable item.
