I used to hear a click sound when I close the camera application, it's like a shutter or something is retracting..
But recently this sound is coming from the phone every often. It's happening since last week... I've been using my mobile for 6 months but this is very unusual. Even when the phone is in standby and the screen is off... every often I can hear it.

Found the culprit !!! It was Skype.
I just opened the overview of my running processes, and each time Skype pops up, you can hear the camera shutter and vice versa. Unsharp low quality movie: http://allserv.kahosl.be/~joris/skypeprocess-xperiago.wmv
In several sources, it is mentioned that a Skype background process is continuously accessing the camera (producing other problems):
I will remove Skype for a while -- I wasn't even signed in.

I have been facing exactly the same problem since 2 weeks ago on my Xperia Go. Apparently, when I removed the Google Calendar widget from my home screen, the click sound dissappeared .... (which I discovered because the widget crashed after a safe mode session).
Would this problem simply relate to a Google Calendar bug or is this a much more advanced issue e.g. related to widgets for Xperia Go ...?
Best regards - j

Hi dear eljunpacomios
I'm not a first year user of st27i.
I know perfectly well that is the sound of the camera's shutter.
I want to know why I hear it while not using camera, while unlocking the screen, while surfing in menu, while making a call?
I use my phone since September 2012. My girl have the same one. AND we both note this bug. It appeared about 15-25 ago.
Eljun , there is no need to make a fool out of me. I am an old user of xperia go, the same as You.
I perfectly know this sound. And know which node emits it. It's realy camera's shutter.
THE QUESTION IS: WHY I HEAR THIS f* SOUND WHILE not using the camera.
It is not a problem???????? It is the sound of the camera's shutter.
That is normal. my opinion - it is not normal!
Eljun, please, do not be like captain obvious)))

Totally agree with you zaka - btw still experiencing the annoying shutter sound.
Indeed, when I installed another calendar widget, the click sound started again, so there's no specific relation (I guess) between the bug and Google Calendar app.
Do you also presume this is a xperia go firmware bug ...?
