Question about Cameras
Please help someone, my Sony a200 DSLR is vibrating and making a loud noise when i turn it on and off. Goes for about 3seconds then stops, can still take photos and everything but it doesn't stop if i change it to manual focus or change the setting from auto. The only thing that is stopping it is when i take the Lense off the camera. So i think it is the lense. Why is it doing this??!! I have had my camera for around 3-4years and its only just started doing this NOW! Please help :(
Since it still takes photos, I don't think it is the shutter. Have you tried cleaning the contacts between the camera and the lens, and does it occur with other lenses ?
The other possibility is that you have activated the sensor cleaning option - check that in the menu.

Sounds like the shutter is jammed. I would get it serviced at a Sony Service Centre.

If it's in continuous auto-focus and doing it, then it is just not locking on to one thing and jumping back and forth between two objects that are very close together in distance and it is normal. It should stop in manual, single shot or single point auto-focus. Sony uses Nikon auto-focus technology and my D-300 with a 70-200mmf2.8 will do it if I turn the auto-focus tracking time(lock-on) all the way down with the auto-focus in full auto.
