Default Fz200 making making whirring noise in shooting mode

Hi - My 3 month old Lumix fz200 is making whirring noise at shooting mode . What's baffling is that the noise is random and sometimes the camera work just fine while at other times it makes that mechanical whirring noise immediately after power on. The camera works just fine in clicking pics even with the constant noise and noise completely goes away when shifted to picture viewing mode..

During this noisy period tilting the camera on the right side sometime helps in reducing the noise . Any idea what could be the problem ? Before taking it to the service center just wanted to check if someone experienced it before

Regards

Hi I checked that continuous AF is OFF .. To better state the problem I have uploaded the video of the issue .. The issue comes once in a while and even taking the camera was of little help as it didnt occur in front of them you can view the video here

That is strange.

Why don't you send an E-Mail to Panasonic support with a link to this video and ask them?

That is definitely not normal! Take it in before warranty expires.
