Recently my A75 has made a grinding noise when I:
zoom in and out
turn the camera on or off

why is this? is it breaking?!

many times the focus mechanism of the newer canons seems to have a grinding noise that is heard when the camera is powered on and off and during zooming (just like you described.) i would not be concerned with this, but if you are still unsure, it is very easy for someone who deals with the cameras on a daily basis to determine if your noise is worth worring about. i work at an electronics store and almost all of the new canons make the same noise and i havent seen a single one come back because of a grinding issue (not focusing/no zooming ability) as i have seen before in kodak and fuji's lower end cameras.

best wishes

Do not worry... I get it also on my S1 IS when slow zooming in and out. Someone on another forum told me that this is not a thing that could aggravate, so will have to live with it. It's a problem when shooting movies... but I'm more in still's than in movies, at least with a photocam.

I made the mistake myself and took the camera to Canon repair center to fix the grinding noise. Instead of fixing the camera,they scratchedits body.

What did they say when you told them what the issue is?
