Noise inside camera

Buzzing noises are constantly emitted by my G2 camera. It is still working but the noise is terribly distracting. Is it autofocusing and how can I make it stop?

It does have that problem. the lens extends...Mine does the same thing. I have had it for 4 years now and counting. So Don't worry about it.

Just braught a second hand Fuji AX245w on eBay and there is no memory card. It sshows internal memory full and its making a buzzing noise near the batteries.

You most likely have purchased a faulty camera.
The buzzing noise is not a good indication that you have a good working camera.

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?

Lens is stuck in the extended position. Turn off and on and it emits 2 buzzing noise like it's trying to retract the lens and then this error message pops up: system error (focus)

There could be sand or dirt in the mechanism. This would mean getting the camera serviced. With Canon cameras with similar problems, some people have found gently applying a twisting, pushing or pulling force to the lens barrel has freed it up. Good luck!

Lens problem, no zooming capabilities and blurry images

This would need to be serviced something is wrong with the auto focus and this is inside the lens housing. I would take it into a camera shop and have the examin the autofocus.
