Question about Sony A100 Digital SLR & 18-70 Lens Kit Digital Camera

Sony 18-70 kit lens vibrates badly

My Sony 18-70 kit lens mounted on A200 makes a loud vibrating noise when I turn the camera on or off, and when it tries to focus. Sometimes it goes away and the lens works fine, other times, the lens cannot focus. A beercan lens on same body has no issues.

This is a lens problem, the AF motor of the lens is trying to engage the gears. Sometime it works, sometimes it does not... It happened to my sigma 70-300. The only solution is to have it repaired. If under warranty it should be free, if not.... might be cheaper to buy a new lens.

What causes noise and vibration in the lens whe. turned on axa100


It's almost certain that some part of the lens or the supporting framework are faulty. You can try troubleshooting the device with the user manual, but you will probably need to have it repaired. Try checking out the user manual to be sure:

Sony cyber-shot T90 is making noise and vibrating


The only motorized part I am aware of is the lens focusing mechanism. If it's making a noise loud enough to be heard and vibrating, it is most likely defective. I suggest sending it back to Sony for service if it is still under warranty.

Everytime i turn on and off my A200(sony DSLR) it shakes and makes noise,, and before it focuses on something it shakes and makes alot of noise?? wahts wrong with it?


It is not your camera, it is your lens, The af lens trying to engage and the gears are grinding. Just for verification go to your nearest camera store and try a different lens on your camera. They will not shake like yours.

The lens kit of my Sony DSLR A200 produces noise


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.

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
