Why is my camera making a strange noise?

Hi, when I power on my camera and the lens comes out it imediately starts to make a strange humming vibrating noise. The camera still works fine, but the noise is killing me.

"I had the same problem, this humming vibrating noise when powered on.

I took the camera apart and opened the lens system and saw that there was lots of dust particles where the autofocus is. The autofocus is no motor but a sliding head on a magnet carrying a focus lens.

I cleaned this place, the focus lens and the image sensor using a small painting brush and an air blower, put it all together and the noise was gone! What more, the pictures became a lot clearer and well focused."

I guess it is the lens motor, no other major moving parts... With the guide I can just put the camera apart, no fix for the motor.
