    Sensor pip noise (whining noise) ?

    I got a strange sound / noise when I turn on or off my nex 5n. Also when I clean the sensor it makes this sound. Anyone got same problem or have experience same thing? It wasnt any sound before I used my blower to clean the sensor. Can I accidently touched the sensor so it can be broken? All functions works and I can talk pictures. But the noise is annoying... hehe

    Do you have the 16-50 lens mounted? They make noise as the lens cycles in and out at startup/shutdown.

    Something isn't right if it makes a noise everytime the camera is turned on or off. Might be time to have it checked out.
