It is now illegal not to have camera shutter sounds on mobile phone cameras in some countries, and this will be the case with more and more countries. This law does not apply to digital cameras. It is in response to mobile phone cameras being used to captured illicit photographs of children etc. This is why Nokia has removed the ability for the user to disable this sound in all the latest models. If you google the subject you will find ways of removing it but most if not all will result in the invalidation of your phones warranty and cannot be discussed in this forum.

This solution works for me, both on E72 and E90. Maybe you haven't turned the Warning tones OFF in your CURRENT profile ? Or maybe your phone is a specialized model for a particular market ?

Just tried turning off the warning tones on my device (made in Finland, bought in Sweden) and you can take 'silent' pictures that way on mine too!

Hi everyone,

Thanks for the info. I tried the silent profile but it doesn't work for me!

Any idea how to remove camera's autofocus? Because it gives out a blinding light for that purpose.

If nothing else works you can try this.  Play an MP3 and try taking a picture.  Does the shutter still sound?  For me it does not.  Now play an MP3 and mute the song.  If you take a picture now there should be no sound.  Good luck.

Basically,  turning of the Warning Tones tip didn't work for and to my friends. But, I've installed Mute Camera Software software, since that I don't have any annoying camera shutter sound. You can download it from following link:

The autofocus light is too bright and could damage the eyes' retina.

I really wish Nokia change the autofocus light back to the "red" one.

Untill then, the camera will remain hazardous for photographing people & animal.

1. turn off shutter sound for my e72

There are various sound options available, on my device no. 4 is same as basic Beep sound & no one has any idea that a photo is clicked.

 

2. turn off autofocus for the camera

no idea.

 

3. How to switch off the annoying flash, even if its turned OFF or in Night mode, still it flashes to focus which is very absolutely wrong.

Using Nokia Lumia 1320.
Also have Nokia E72 & Nokia N8.

My N95 and N79 have ability to turn shutter sound off, and my new E72 DOES NOT allow me to do that. Why? I live in Russia and there is no such law here...

Hi clarabelletyy

 

On a Mac this extremely small 1kb file opens as a text file which you need to save as mute-camera.sis, however this still would need to be signed for you to utilise on specific device.

Happy to have helped forum in a small way with a Support Ratio = 37.0

Re: E72 - How do i turn off camera shutter sound n light?

Hi there,

 

Thanks alot for the help provided.

But, i'm still facing problems! :smileysad::smileysad: 

 

i downloaded the patch and signed it using an open signed.

However, when i filled up the necessary info and sent it, a message like the following pops up..

 

"FAILURE: Submitted .sis file uses a UID that is not in the protected or test range (0x10202be9). Open Signed Online only accepts UIDs from the ranges 0x2xxxxxxx and 0xExxxxxxx. "

 

Is there any solution for this problem? :smileysad:
