    same problem here...

    Same problem here. Looking closely into the lens assembly, I see a brass ring slightly out of alignment when I turn it on. The noise is probably caused by gears grinding as they try to move, but might end up slipping. I think this problem can be caused by the lens assembly being hit, contaminated with grit, or opened in a constrained space (like what happens if the camera condescends to open inside a bag filled with junk).

    Unfortunately, it will be hard to fix unless there is an easy way to disassemble the lens assembly. Fortunately, I have an industrial lab at my disposal...

    If I repair it, I'll publish a guide and link it here.

Make sure your battery is charged and if so, take it back to the place you bought it from.
