View Full Version : Loose Piece

07-11-2016, 01:58 PM
Recently I acquired the DVX200, and noticed now that when it is off, it makes a noise when moving up and down, as if there was a loose piece inside. When the zoom is at the maximum , the sound is louder. When it's on , the sound disappears. This is something normal or something that I care? Firstly thank you for an answer. Sorry for my English .Mark, of Brazil .

Is it a "clunking" sound?

From Barry Green's guide:

"What’s that rattling noise?
The first question many new owners ask is “What’s that click?” When a new
owner picks up the camera for the first time, they will usually hear a “click”
or “rattle” when tipping the camera back and forth, like there is something
loose inside the camera. This is completely normal, there’s nothing wrong
with the camera. What you’re hearing is an element of the optical image
stabilizing (OIS) system. When the camera is powered on, the OIS system
is energized, and the rattle disappears. This is one of the most frequently
asked questions, so if you were concerned by the “rattle,” have no fear, you’re
in very good company! Since this is one of the first questions new users ask,
it seemed only appropriate that it be the first answer in the guide."

Yes, it's a "clunking" sound, opaque (only when off), but I'm relieved now, knowing that is normal. Thank you!!!
