    When I zoom to max directly after my Cam was turned on, I can hear a click/plop just before the lens reaches the max zoom.
    Also the bottom of the lens-housing has a scratch.
    This scratch seems to be caused by a screw gotten loose.

    Further the lens is slightly out of center (pushed upwards)

    But my cam doesn't turn off when I zoom out.

    Does this equal your issue(s)?

You don't want to be having clicking and popping or grinding sounds. Call Canon and see what your options are: if under warranty, possibility of being covered unless dropped or sat on or something. if out of warranty you can still have it repaired or upgrade/replace camera for a deep discount that will include a 6 month warranty.

Hope this helps!

Is not working properly


A good possibility is the zoom head is causing the clicking sound. As we zoom the flash, the inside of the head moves to the back and forward. Gently tap it a few times see if that helps. My guess is it needs servicing.

SPEEDLITE 580EX TTL Flash: flash is making a constant beating/clicking noise ...


Loosen the two small screws under the flash on the swivel head. Turn flash on. You may need to twist the head just slightly. Flash bulb moves back and forth in the swivel head when zooming. If you dropped the flash, this may have jarred it from the track. I had the same problem with mine, and the above solution fixed it. Zoom works again and no clicking noise. Let me know.

Lens making strange clicking noise when turned on or zoomed in.


If the noise wasn't there for 3 days and is there now, it can only get worse. I would return it for a replacement.

Frozen lens and shutter


Press the power button on and hold it down while extending and twisting the telescopic zoom lens. It might fix your problem. In any case it could not make it worse Good luck!
