I've had my N97 mini for about 10 days now. Starting from day one there's been a high frequency noise coming from the phone whenever the display is turned on.
The noise is loudest if I put my ear to the middle of the display, but it's also quite annoying when I hold it normally as a phone. If I use the key lock button to turn off the display the noise goes away immediately.
Is this normal for this model? Has anybody else experienced this?
Hello, I have the same problem with my N97 mini AND E72. Looking foreward to read about a solution to this problem. The service center say`s that there is no soultion that they know about since it appears on several models.....
i buy nokia n97 mini from 1 week and from the first day i hear the screen noise
is that a problem in the hardware ??
please nokia team replay
hi, i think this is normal, because it appears on several n97mini and more. The screen noise that we lissen is a characteristic of many display "backlit". This is my thought.
But if nokia team reply, i would be very happy.
I heard this "high frequency" noise also from around center of the screen of my N97 mini (just bought it dec 09). Sounds like an old fluorescent light (eventhough not as loud), which is questionable whether the device doesn't have the capacity to operate/run in "normal-silent" way or it's now becoming a "buzzing-phone" (with its additonal annoying feature)?
This exhausted-noise like is gone when the screen is off and start to "iiiiiiiiiiing" continuosly again when the screen is on.
@SDP_2009 where did you buy your N97 mini from? country?
I bought mine in Singapore, from cell phone operator. Would different manufacturer, in different country, using different origin of spare-part bring up different quality of end product?
This seriously ANNOYING sound is defying the big brand name!
are the testing & quality control team at NOKIA losing their hearing?
don't tell me you guys (a.k.a. NOKIA) proud of this "pitchy" sound-emitting smartphone.
please show us that you guys smart-enough to make it SILENT..... (oh shut up!!!)
@EdGee: I bought my N97 Mini from Orange (mobile network) in the UK.
I have no strange sound from my phone. I would guess that you have a defective handset. Get Nokia, or the company you bought it from, to replace it. And check it thoroughly before you accept the new one.
either battery low or fully charged
on every profile (general, silent, meeting etc)
this "iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiing" sound still heard so long the screen is on
when the screen swithced off then the sound gone
it's heard when the ear put near to center of the screen
the sound comes out from the screen
