Well, I've never come across an 'YNOS' camera before.Did you buy this off a shady character in a pub?
I used to have 1 identical to that but I don't remember it ever gurgling at me.
I noticed though that when I put my ear to it, it makes a gurgling kind of sound...this is ONLY when the lens is open though !...why's that then ?..what is this sound ?..why does it do it ?
Is this proof that neilp is in a mirror universe?
Try turning the camera 'click' noise/sound-effect off in the settings.

Yes - RD. I think you're right - or an anti shake mechanism?.Mine makes a huge clatter when you press the shutter button but it has a mirror and shutter - just like a real camera!
Does the gurgly sound change if you move your hand in front of the lens? And take it away again?Possible it's the autofocus and/or image-stabilisation mechanics. You could try switchng to manual focus and turn off stabilisation and see fi it goes quiet.T'other possibility is that the sound is coming from the speaker/sounder - can you check? Put thumb over speaker and see if goes quiet?The old BBC Computer (maybe before your time? - ask dad) used to make quiet hisses and buzzing noises from its speaker which were coming off the electronics (power supply or whatever). The nature of the hisses and buzzes depended on what the computer was doing - you could often hear whether a program was running normally or had jammed up!
Maybe its triggered by light obviously a sensor I would imagine like a security light might work.. either light or motion or both...
Neil - As far as I am aware, ynoS Cybershots have always had anti-shake. I bought mine in early 2003 and that had it.In any case, are you absolutely sure you bought it in 2001? Judging by the rounded end yours is a P series. The DSC-P9 (which I'm pretty certain yours is) was the first 4Mpx P series & that was introduced in 2002. In fact, I think that was their first ever 4Mpx camera.
Can I get all smug again now? Can I? Eh? Eh?
Thanks to ewe and all who helped unravel this.Though, I would still like to know why this sound is made and what how is it made?
