N8 mic noise - both calls&video

Hi,

I've got a problem with my N8. The microphone(s) records fizz both during phone calls and recording video. I've tried flashing latest SW, but it seems to be HW problem, as no SW change has helped since now.

I dont know whether "fizz" is the most suitable word, so check it out in this video:

Is it possible that it is a hw problem? It just started to fizz one day, no fall, no bath. 

Thanks,

Ondra

I think you are covering phone's mic with your fingers or hand while phone call or video call.....try holding your phone differently and make sure that your fingers dont cover parts of back side of your phone

thanks for answer,

but that's definetly not the issue. I always look out not to touch the microphones or even touch the whole phone unnecessarily, as it would be also recorded. Just to make sure, I made a vid while the phone was standing on its top side (HDMI cover), with the same result..

Re: N8 mic noise - both calls&video

mine Just started doing the same, Just like that, No drop, No water. Then this Nokia phone is probably not made on good quality. I wonder if this expensive devices are fabricated to last one year of guaranty. It would not be good for Nokia, at this time, something like this in hands of the public. Bad quality products. I hope that I can take this to Nokia and that then can fix it for Me. . . Other wise I am making a couple of many angry videos about this issue. I am part of the video and picture Comunity of Nokia and everyone will know about this hard ware issue on Nokia N8 AFTER ONE YEAR OF USAGE. My youtube channel is carlodimaximus , Just ro you can see that I am all about Nokia videos and pics. Also Nokia care sucks big time here in Panama republic.
