Android Phone Making Static Noises

Why is My Android Phone Making Static Noises?

Do you get static noise from your mobile while making calls? You can sometimes experience static noises from the speaker while talking on your mobile phone. You take a call or play music, and it starts making static noises on your cell phone. This audio crackling 

is incredibly distracting and can make it hard to comprehend what the other party says. Perhaps the static is noisy and steady, or maybe it occurs just once in a while, but one thing’s for sure: it’s irritating. 

It may be an issue with the outdoor equipment if you have flickering on both phones, caused by wet surroundings, like moisture you can not see. If you hear static, noise, or crackling on one screen, then the issue may be the phone due to a cable, filter, or the jack in which it is plugged in.

Sometimes this issue is most likely triggered by an app making a notification sound or a notification being made by the device program.

A few issues are generally to blame for this irritation, most of which can be easily and rapidly fixed at home. In this article, I’ll explain why your phone makes static noises and how to resolve the issue for sure.

Reason for static noises

  • Sweat or Water 
  • Nearby Devices
  • Cellphone is tapped
  • Software Issues

1.When the mobile is wet

  • If you’ve been sweating, wipe the phone dry. The sweat will enter and make a static noise through the speaker (or headset). Before using it again, you can need to wait for the unit to dry.
  • If the phone has been overly wet, turn the phone off and leave it off. To prevent any more harm, you need to let the phone dry out. For many hours, leave it off. 
  • Please turn off the cell phone and leave it switched off. It would help if you let the phone dry out to avoid any further damage. Leave it off for several hours. Even if the outside is dry, it can take the phone inside a while to dry out.

2. Nearby Electronic or radiation devices 

  • Stand outside of the microwaves. According to Podcast addict Phone service may be influenced by the frequency of the microwave, creating harsh static on the speaker or apps stoped functions.
  • Switch away from large devices made of metal. Such artefacts can bounce around a signal and trigger speaker problems.

3.Tapped phone

When you are on a call, it is widespread for a tapped phone to encounter background noise. Static and clicking are familiar sounds but can be due to a defective connection as well. However, if you hear an oscillating static from your phone when it is not in use, the security of your mobile device is likely to be at risk. Hang up and re-dial if in doubt.

4. Software Issues

The issue is triggered by pressing Applications and then Settings to check if an app causes it. Tap on the Updates tab from here. With an on-off turn, you can see your phone applications here. Try to turn off each app’s warning immediately to check if the problem is still occurring. This app is what triggers the problem when you get to an app where the random sound stops. Sometimes deleting corrupt APK files can solve this issue.

There are also times where sounds from the phone system trigger the issue. Follow the steps listed below to verify if this is the case.

  • Tap Apps from Home, then Settings.
  • Tap Vibration and Sounds
  • Try turning off the choices below 

Touch sounds: Play tones when you touch or tap the screen to make selections; Screen lock says: Play a sound when you unlock the screen; Emergency tone: Sound an alert, vibrate, or stay silent when an emergency alert is received.; Charging sound: Play a sound when a charger is connected.

If the problem continues, then continue with the extra steps mentioned below.

Resolving Android’s Static Noise 

Conduct a Soft Reset

By doing a soft reset, most problems such as this can typically be solved. This is usually the first thing you would have to do when the phone is unresponsive, but in this situation, this will also work as the phone app will be refreshed. This is done by taking the battery out and pressing for at least a minute on the power button. Insert the battery again, and then you can turn your phone on. Make sure to download data in sd card or any other USB files before reset.

Check if the issue exists in Safe Mode

  • Switch off the computer.
  • Press and hold the Power key near the screen with the name of the unit.
  • Release the Power Key when the ‘XYZ’ logo of your cell phone company appears on the screen.
  • Click and hold the Volume Down key immediately after releasing the Control key.
  • Continue to hold down the Volume key until you finish restarting the system.
  • The secure mode will be shown in the screen’s bottom-left corner.
  • When you see ‘Secure Mode,’ release the Volume Down key.

If the issue does not arise in this mode, it could be triggered by an app you have downloaded. Find out and uninstall what program this is.

Wipe the phone’s cache partition

There are times when the phone software’s temporary data can get corrupted, leading to problems happening on the computer. In this case, Research gate recommends, the safest thing to do is to delete the phone’s cache partition from the recovery mode.
