Help w/ K200d

I just received a used K200D that I purchased in the forum. The camera is less than a month old. When I turn on the camera their is a small vibration, and noise. Is this normal? Everything else seems to work fine. Could this be the self cleaning sensor.Thanks in advance for the help.

I found the answer in the manual. The dust removal shaking was set to start up.

yes it sounds like the sensor clean is set to "on start up"

you can change it if you like (i just do it manually when i think it needs it). in the menus somewhere (dont have camera here to look for you and i dont remember well enough)
