Shutter making an extra clicking noise

\015 I just recently starting getting an extra clicking noise when my shutter closes. If I open it for a longer time than 3secs it click in between taking shots. How can this be fixed? Thanks for any help.\015

Timndege,
\015\012You are taking long exposures over 3 seconds, the camera does make some slight noise while the timer is going through the count down, that is normal, as long as the shutter is doing what it is supposed to do and your image is coming out (and the ones over 3 seconds also) it sounds normal. Only if it is hanging up and taking longer than the time you are describing, then the shutter should be cleaned.
