    I've tried everything I can think off. Restarting, updating, uninstalling and reinstalling, checking app permissions, etc. Still, everytime I open my camera app (through quick launch or clicking the icon ) I hear a constant static sound where there used to be nothing. I cant figure out why the camera is engaging the speaker or why its playing this white noise. FYI I have a Galaxy S7 (not the edge) SM-G930A, Android version 8.0.0

    Welcome to Android Central! Here are the steps for Safe Mode: https://www.t-mobile.com/support/dev...galaxy-s7-edge

    Do sounds otherwise play normally over the main speaker in other apps?

    Sounds play normally everywhere else. I put it in safe mode but it still makes the sound.

    Go to settings>apps>3 dots upper right corner tap > permission manager tap> camera what has permission there maybe disable some until it goes away.

    "Storage" isnt an option on camera app permissions. I disabled everything except "camera" and it still makes the sound.

    If it's happening in Safe Mode, then I'd guess it's a hardware problem.

    What happens if you connect to Bluetooth headphones or a BT speaker? Does the static still come out from the main speaker?

    I dont have a bluetooth speaker with me right now but i tried plugging in my headphones and the noise came out of the main speaker. Funny thing though, when I switch to the forward facing camera / selfie mode, the noise goes away.

    You try cleaning out the headphone jack ? Maybe its causing this issue.
