Loud electrical shock noise when flash goes off

Hi there. Woke up to take pics of my 7 year old daughter's birthday this morning, and all of the sudden there is this very loud electrical shock noise when the camera flash goes off. I stopped taking pictures because I started to get nervous. The camera still took the picture and I didn't get shocked (yet). It is a Canon S1 IS. Any thoughts would be very helpful. The camera is only about 2 years old. Thanks so much. Hoping it is an easy fix that can be solved by cake time tonight??? : )

Re: loud electrical shock noise when flash goes off

I had the same problem with my camera a year ago and I took it in for service and they repaired it. I'm sorry but I don't remember what the problem was. It cost me about $90 for the service.

I cannot find any information in the limited instructions that came with the Polaroid a800 camera we purchased as to how to shoot video with it. I need help- this camera is a birthday present for my 10...

I couldn't find the manual online but the picture of the camera shows a "mode" button. I'll bet if you press it, a video mode will show up somewhere.

Problem starting the camera, viewfinder LED just flashes one time.

chances are good that your camera needs to be formatted although they recommend that you do it from your camera and not from your computer
