Live with Walkman: Background noise while playing Music

Hello!

When i play Musik on my LwW i can hear "static" noise in the background, especially between two songs. When i stop the music the noise continues for a few seconds and then it disappears. After starting the music again the noise comes back.

I updatet the Firmware to the latest version and i tried different headphones and music players but the noise is always there. I also checked the audio / EQ settings, they are set to normal.

Does anyone else have this problem?

What can i do?

Thanks in advance.

I can hear the noise every time when the audio part in the phone is activated, even when i play back ringtones, videos or everything else which uses pcm / aac / mp3 audio.

I would suggest that you repair your phone with PCC or SEUS and see if the problem disappear

Hello again!

Ok, i tried the repair option in the Sony Ericsson PC Companion, but it did not fix my problem. Do you have any other ideas?

Thanks in advance!

I also have the same problem. When I connect my headphone, the noise stays there for like 1 minute and then disappears. When I change a song it come back for a few moments.
