This answer was rated:

My Blackberry curve makes a VERY LOUD buzzing noise, enough to wake the dead, when I try to take a photo with the camera. What's happening?
Thanks for your question. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I look forward to assisting you.

It will either be an issue with the firmware, or with the Camera Chip.

remove the battery from the Curve.

Hold the power button down for 30 seconds, then release.

Put the battery back in, start the Curve and take a photo.

Let me know if you still have the problem please.

Thank you

Seems to only happen when I have a specific programme running in the background. It somehow makes the artificial 'shutter' noise of the camera sound very werid and loud.
