I recently bought a minolta f100 from ebay and it is a refurbished model.when i switch it on in the auto mode it produces a crackling sound continuosly but not in the manual mode. I want to ask if its normal or is there something wrong with my camera?
Also in the Macro mode,the picture in the LCD keeps changing from sharp to blurry off and on with the crackling sound.
any owner of f100 will be able to answer my question so please help me.If there is something wrong,i`ll change it as i have 3 months warrenty with it.

It sounds like your auto focus is set to full time. Go to the custom 1 page of your menu and set "Full-time AF" to OFF. The noise should stop and the camera will only auto focus when you push the shutter button half way down. Perhaps in the fully automatic mode this can't be done on the F-100. I have another model Minolta camera and the "Full-Time AF" can be defeated in any mode except "movies".
