Hello All,

I have bought a new Canon SD500 as a christmas gift for my wife. I opened the camera to test it and charge the battery.

While testing, I heard some noises that worry me. When I turn on the camera, there is a bell that seems to go ding-dong (normal), then there is a whirring sound, followed by another whirring sound. When I use the T & W, the camera whirrs when the lens is extending or going back in. But that is followed by another whirring sound.

It is this second whirring sound that bothers me and has me thinking there is something wrong with the camera.

Or is it normal ?.

Please let me know.
