Having problems with your Canon Digital Rebel XT / EOS 350D Digital Camera with EF-S 17-85mm IS Lens ?

Have a eos350d camera ,the flash is not popping-up but initially makes a short clicking noise as if its attempting to engage


Answers :

If you're sure the click is from engaging the flash I suspect the spring or holding mechanism is stuck, maybe dust, dirt somewhere inthere. Can you lift the flash mechanism by hand after the click? If so, you can try and clean it with compressed air.

Strange noises I bought it last week and its makes strage "clicky" noises when on. I've exchanged it twice and all 3 have made the same noises. Is this normal? They don't sound like normal camera noises and the store where I bought it listened and agreed that each camera seems to be not working properly.

Camera lens The lens itself is making a strange noise and it is having trouble adjusting itself when the camera turns on. When I attempt to turn the camera on all you are able to see is a black screen and there is also a buzzing noise which I assume is the lense trying to adjust itself. The lens is trying to push itself outwards but it is getting stuck. I'm not exactly sure what is wrong with it but I assume that once Iam able to fix the lens I will be able to use the camera normally again.
