Re: Note 9 Buzzing sound when Zooming Camera

JUMP TO SOLUTION
My Note 9 was also fine till I upgraded to One UI. The vibrating doesn't happen every single time I use the zoom feature & it does not happen when I use different camera apps like ProShot. I have noticed as the temperature of the phone goes up, it seems to trigger the zooming vibration more often. Because it is not a constant problem yet & the fact that even with the camera hardware being fixed & people are still having problems, I haven't sent my Note 9 in for warranty repairs. I think there has to be a a connection to the issue & software. If it really was a hardware issue, then I would think any 3rd party app would have the same problem. Hopefully, Samsung can update their Camera app & also add back Pro Video mode.

It happens on all Notes. It happened not my Note 3 and Note 5. Actually, it just vibrates when opening the camera up in general.

Could someone confirm this only happens on super bright shooting condition?

Ive had this issue too when I use the optical zoom in button (the single pind tree on my phone)

Its a mechanical, I don't think a reset will fix anytihg. Have found a work around though. 

 

Before you activate it, focus on a near object, like the ground. Then hit the optical zoom, tap to focus on the ground, now slowly move your camera up to the subject you want. If it buzzes again redo.

Another work around below... 

 

 

I am on the latest available version available on the Verizon network and still seeing regular issues when trying to zoom in on any camera mode. I am quite confident it is a hardware issues as I found what fixes it, until you zoom back out.

 

When you feel/hear the camera make that faint buzzing sound and the screen goes wavey as it tries to focus, give it a good forward backward shake. It may take a couple of tries until you get a feel for what I'm explaining but it makes the problem go away everytime. 

 

Because of this, I'm confident the issue is related to hardware (at least in some cases) considering software cannot feel shakes, movement. 

 

I also read in another thread that Samsung has confirmed its hardware and needs to be sent for warranty repair.

I'm having the same issue as well on my Note 9. Everytime I take a picture with the zoom button, it vibrates and the picture is blurry. It sounds and looks almost as it's trying to focus a lens. It happened once then it didn't happen again for a while but now it happens all the time! I hope this issue gets fixed. This camera is one of my favorite things about this phone. Smiley Sad
