Having problems with your Sony Alpha DSLR-A350K Digital Camera ?

SONY A350 when turned on and off makes loud vibrating sound

\015 The vibration seems to be coming from the lens area but not certain. I was trying to take photos at night and I kept holding the shutter button down and It would not take. Then when I tried to turn the camera off It made the loud buzzing/vibrating sound. I recharged my battery just to see if that was the problem but it isnt. Any advise would be greatly appreciated! Thanks, Heather\015

Im having the same problem, i just bought the camera off of someone. and it makes a weird sound when i turn it on. and when i turn it off it makes a buzzing, kind of sound. would it be better to sell it and get rid of it ? or will it be cheaper to fix it? i have a sony a100. i bought it for $80
Hi,\012I have exactly the same problem. The vibrating sound happens when the camera is turned-on or off.\012It looks like the camera is auto-deploying the anti-dust functionality and the vibration tries to shake-off the dust on the sensor.\012But I tried cleaning up the insides.. no luck.\012Would appreciate any tips on resolving this issue..\012thanks,\012KP
