[Q] Crackling Sound from Earpiece
after I disassembled my phone to clean the microphone holes. I now have a constant crackling/static sound/noise from the area where the earpiece is located. I can only hear it wenn my ear is really close (as when I am actually on the phone). It is not there during boot up, but as soon as Android is booted I can hear it. It also goes away when I turn of the screen. But not when I am on the phone and the screen is automatically turned off by the proximity sensor.
I'm on Stock Sense 5 with this phone, so it is not unlocked, rooted or anything similar.
I still haven't found the issue. But I did notice that disconnecting the digitizer makes the noise go away. Any ideas what to check next are highly welcome.
