Loud electrical shock noise when flash goes off

Hi there. Woke up to take pics of my 7 year old daughter's birthday this morning, and all of the sudden there is this very loud electrical shock noise when the camera flash goes off. I stopped taking pictures because I started to get nervous. The camera still took the picture and I didn't get shocked (yet). It is a Canon S1 IS. Any thoughts would be very helpful. The camera is only about 2 years old. Thanks so much. Hoping it is an easy fix that can be solved by cake time tonight??? : )

I had the same problem with my camera a year ago and I took it in for service and they repaired it. I'm sorry but I don't remember what the problem was. It cost me about $90 for the service.

Tv turns on w/pic then pic dissapears light blinks 4 times

I have the same issue, we've had to change our bulb three times in less than two years. now we have 61" expensive paper weight. Our current bulb is less than 6 months old. The TV is only 2 years old and like i said this is our third bulb.

the blue light blinks 4 times. you get sound. then a few minutes the the picture returns... then it goes out, and the cycle goes on.

A solution to this would be greatly appreciated.

Tub makes loud thumping noise when spinning

Good morning! It's common to hear a loud thumping noise during spinning because the load (clothes) are not properly place in the tub. Please try to put the load in order & compress it down. best regards.

Load noise coming from freezer

nothing to do with light bulb - noise is probably fan hitting ice that has built up. to check, remove back panel inside freezer and check for ice build up. melt off with a hairdryer and get back to me if i'm right
