Re: Unusual click sound from my mobile

Found the culprit Slightly smiling Face!!! 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.
