It once had this problem before and I fixed it but I cant remember how. Whenever i turn it on it makes a low buzzing sound then it shuts off.
The lens opens up but closes once the buzzing stops. I figure since its been fixed before, it could be remedied again. Please help.

Re: I get a buzzing sound
This problem is related to the lens assembly. The camera will check if these work properly when it's being powered on. If something goes rong here it will turn off or display you some error messages. This problem occures when some of the lens mechanisms get out of place and jamms or damages other components. As the lens assembly is a very delicate mechanism I would suggest you to go back to the service center that fixed it the first time and ask them to check it. Don't try to power the camera on anymore because the lens assembly could be damaged further or beyound repair if the servo-motors are trying to alling the lens something jamms them and not allowing them to move properly. This will force the servo-motors and they could damage other components or themselves. It could be fixed, but don't force the camera to work anymore for the time being.

The buzzing sound is most likely the started solenoid chattering due to low battery voltage, change the battery and try again. If it still does it make make sure the engine is not seized and can turn over. Then measure voltage going from the solenoid to the starter, if it is very low change the solenoid
The sound is a result of the faulty CRT base, and you will have to replace the base socket. Make sure you by the exact same type of base, and if you are not a techie, get a qualified technician, this is not a costly problem.
