Having problems with your Canon EOS 400D / Rebel XTi Digital Camera ?

Just a weird noise

\015 My camera sounds like something is loose inside of it...that's it...not much of a problem otherwise. I was just wondering why it sounds like that.\015

Answers :

I've had this problem as well, but unfortunately, it seems that I discovered it when the camera simply would not take the picture!  So I can't help but think that whatever's come loose inside is a bit more serious.  I would have to point to the ground, then lift it up slowly, THEN it would take the photo.  So for me, I'm thinking it's more than the flash or whatnot previously mentioned.  Very frustrating as I just got this camera four months ago, and treat it like a baby!
I think Fiddy01 is on the right track with the noise being the two flash guides. I have an XTi and that rattle is common. to check if it is the flash guides and not something else, first remove your lens so you can isolate the sound to the camera body. Next gently shake the camera to hear the sound. Then pop up the flash, and locate the guides (they are black and glossy, and are attached to the camera with matching Phillips screws). Once you you find them, use your thumb an pointer finger to pinch or hold the guides securly in place. while doing that hold the camera with your other hand and gently shake, DO NOT DROP IT! the sound should be gone. If so than no worries. Just a note there is also a failt sound you may hear while doing this, it is caused by the tilt senor, it will make its sound while doing the above steps, but insead of shaking the camera you slowly tilt/rotate it like going from landscape to portraite and back. This is not a strong sound you may need to bring it close to your ear to hrear it. If you try this and still hear a dominate noise you should have it looked at.

My camera fell on my floor when I was trying to film a video. Now it is stuck with the lens out, and when I try to turn it on it makes a weird noise, stops, makes it again, makes a new 'bloop' powering off noise, and that's it. I can click the little play button in the square to view my pictures and it will make noise and turn on and I can go through my settings but it will not let me switch to actual camera/video mode! What do I do?

Recently, i've been having an issue with my Kodak Easyshare M883 camera Every time i press the power button, the camera turns on, makes a weird noise, zooms in and out to refocus, makes the noise again, then completely shuts off.
