Question about Cameras
We just bought this camera today for our 12 year old son. We got it home and heard the same strange sound. I showed the camera to my husband who is a professional photographer, and he said the sound you are hearing is coming from the motor. If you look at your screen when this noise is happening you will see that it only makes the sound when the camera is trying to do the auto focusing. Once the camera focuses on the image, the sound stops. He said the sound is normal, and this is the way that this camera was designed. Once I looked at the screen I could see that he was right, when the camera focused on a face, or object, the sound stopped.

Try jiggling the lens. Use compressed air to blow out any grit around the lens barrel. If that doesn't do it, you'll need to get the camera serviced.
