Sony Ericsson :: W995 How To Turn Off Camera Sound / Focus Sound
May 2, 2010
for some new Sony Ericsson phones (I know the W995 has this problem for sure) there is no option to turn off the camera sound or the focus sound, even when silent mode is on. Here I am going to guide you through a solution to overcome this.What we are going to do is replace the sound files for the camera sound and the focus sound with a sound which is silent, using A2uploader.
1. Download this .rar file I have uploaded with 3 sound files, namely camerafocus.3gp, camerashutter2.3gp and camerashutter2_rer.3gp
2. Currently you can choose the following sounds
1. Camera shutter
2. Bear can opening
The files in the .rar have been created to replace the Beer can opening sound, however if you want to keep this one, then change the number on the end e.g to replace the Laser sound the two files would be camerashutter4.3gp and camerashutter4_rer.3gp Although please note to replace the Camera shutter sound the number on the end is not 1, but is no number at all e.g. camerashutter.3gp and camerashutter_rer.3gp3.Now you connect your phone to A2uploader (see Tutorial on main website for how to do this) and go to tpa/presets/system/sound and drop all 3 files into this folder. If you want to keep the sound you're replacing right click on it and click 'read' this will create a folder ph_out with this file in it.4.Shut down A2uploader, switch on phone and bobs your uncle!You can also add other sounds, I created a Gavin and Stacey one here but I will happily accept requests for others.Hope this helps!

Has anyone else noticed this?, I've tried various music (encoded at different rates which sound fantastic on other audio equipment) and different headphones (via both sockets on the phone). My mate who is in a band and heavily into audiophile stuff agrees that the sound quality is terrible. My old w810i is far better. The top end is to harsh but without any definition and whenever I use one of the EQ settings the music seems to get muddied up and even slightly louder and quieter in sections. I am wondering if this either a bad phone or something to do with the firmware that O2 (UK) uses (I know they alter it as google maps and wayfinder aren't installed). I have used the update service which states I am running the latest firmware. The phone is going back but if the next one is the same then I may have to move phones.
I recently purchased a W995 and I am trying to turn off the shutter sounds for the camera. I know many people with SE phones and they all tell me the same thing. You can turn them off in the settings for the camera. On my W995 there is no option for the shutter sounds to be off there is only 4 sounds to choose from. I am sure that there should be a fifth option for off but its not there. How do i turn them off? I got 10 days cooling off period on my contract and this, along with a day of wifi problems, will mean the phone will be going back if there is no resolution for it.
-What are the advantage and disadvantage of the camera and sound ?-From what i've heard at discussion board on FB , Vivaz has so many problems , like the GPS cant use when there's no internet connection, difficulty on opening FB , sound , headphone and etc . IS IT TRUE?-Does the touch screen can be easily damaged ?-Is it true that the volume sound is low?
I have noticed on this on my Sony Ericsson Xperia ray mobile phone that it makes some kind of sound on the camera application . whenever I try to take the picture or while exiting the application or if I tab the photo that is just taken . it like the small click sound but it very irritating . I am afraid is this my phone or there are some having the same problem on their phone, whether it's a norm .
Everything was great with my camera but recently I started to experience major issues: When I try to take a picture of close objects or documents, the camera doesn't focus, the camera is trying to focus again and again while making a low "buzzing" sound and gentle vibration.
When I try to take a picture of the room or a view, it usually able to focus. I have tried other camera apps as well, same issue. I don't know if it's hardware related or something else.
I got a problem with w995 after camera driver update i tried,"v3.0_Extreme Sharpness Special Edition_for_w995_VGA_640x480 Video Resolution" photo is not as i want very low quality, i can't record any video cuz while im recording video phone close camera and back to the standby menu and the biggest problem is i lost the English Language in phone.I don't know what is the problem.please any one help me
I've had my phone for at least a year now and suddenly today it won't turn on. This also happened maybe 30mins-1hr after turning it off. It was working fine but now no matter how I try turning it on, the buttons just light up and it vibrates but nothing comes on the screen. Is this a battery problem or a screen problem? I have to take out the battery before I can try turning it on again. And also it won't charge. I tried searching for answers but haven't found anything.
Sometimes when the camera starts focusing to make a picture, it makes a really high pitched sound. It continues when the camera has focused until the picture is made. The sound certainly doesn't come from the speakers and isn't triggered by the phone itself but purely by the camera on the back, so it has to be something hardware related.
It isn't that big of a problem, the camera certainly isn't malfunctioning, but I was with a friend today who asked me what that sound was and I'm wondering as well, since it isn't supposed to produce sounds like that.
How do I disable the facebook application from autostarting ? I use the W995.It's annoying because everytime I on my phone it will activate I'll have to pay for it (internet)[ This Message was edited by: tranced on 2010-02-20 12:35 ]
I just started having problems with the camera in my C905; all the pictures now look blurry, out of focus. The phone was purchased in Dec.2009,and I have contacted SE CSR and will be shipping the phone in for repair. What causes this condition?
I have dropped my phone so many times it now needs the main camera lens cover replacing. I cannot find one anywhere. Even genuine cases off ebay do not have it so it must be built on to the board. Any ideas what to do with my phone?
I am getting no sound from the speaker on my k800i. I can not hear ringtones, or music. The sound does work on the ear phones, and the phone is not in silent mode. The volume is set high. I can hear the voice of other callers. Any ideas?
I have just lost all sound on my phone. I don't get a ringtone when someone calls and the message alert doesn't sound. I have installed the updates as instructed by the guy in the 3 shop where I bought the phone but it hasn't worked. What can I do?
I was trying before.to get a clear sound with video dj.i mean when I want to insert a sound clip it show just a amr format can be used.but by chance I found that u can use m4a sound format to get a clear sound as mp3 quilty and maybe better I found that u can insert any .m4a sound format with video dj then if u want to get any clip as example a holy quran sound clip in mp3 format .u can convert that sound clip frm mp3 to m4a to make video dj accept it.
I recently brought a Naite phone and I've got this issue with it, wondering if I am the only one who does. Sometimes when I call people there is a sound in the background (which can be heard by the other person as well) like when you keep the phone near a large speaker (or subwoofer). This happens randomly and sometimes even when I am outside, with no speakers around (although when I am home the sound can be heard even with the speakers turned off).
Yesterday I bought Spiro and I encountered some issues:
1. No flashlight as stated in the specification on SE site! 2. If you choose some of the standart equalizers different from normal everything is ok but when you stop the player and then resume it - it returns to normal equalizer 3. You cannot create custom equalizer settings in walkman player 4. Overall the sound quality is awful - even my old 5 years old k750i (which is not walkman) plays music better.
My wife has a W380i when she calls a person or receives a call, she has to put the phone on speaker for herself or them to be heard we have tried turning up volume and changing profiles etc. Why? All other functions are fine i.e. walkman, games plenty of volume.
My phone has suddenly lost all sound when i get a call. It plays music and rings OK but there is no sound coming from the ear-piece, I cannot hear the other person when I receive or make a call but they can hear me.
When e.g. the ringtone volume is changed it is saved within the current profile, but when the sms notification sound is changed it is changed for all profiles.I.e. It is not possible to have different sms notification sounds for normal and meeting.Is this intended?
I have the W995i, but when ever it vibrates, itís sounds so cheap and poor and sometimes the two parts of the phone (which slide) vibrate against each other. Trying it with other handsets, the result is a much nicer sound and feeling. Itís hard to explain, but itís like tinny and horrible. Does anyone else have this problem? It was second hand off ebay.
I know the IPhone 4 gives the best sound quality when it comes to music. But I like to know which non touch screen SE phone gives the best sound quality? Do all SE walkman phones give the same sound quality output? What about other manufacturers such as Nokia and Samsung. Do their music phones offer better sound quality than SE ones?
Does anyone know how to turn off shutter sound in Aino? I was using Sony Ericsson w810i for more than 5 years, and then started using Aino from about 2 days ago. With the experience of w810i, I thought enabling the Silent Mode would shutdown the shutter sound, but it's not happening. I tried every profile, did everything I can, but still the shutter sound is still there. If Sony Ericsson team is reading this thread,please be good enough to enable that with the Silent Mode.
I have problem with my SE Zylo (W20i). I have no sound on incoming call.I cant hear the one calling me. They can hear me though . Hands free works fine, speaker phone works fine. It is only the actual phone that is totally off? Any thoughts? Might be an easy solution that I have missed but right now im stuck.
Can any one tell me how can I make my K800i phones sound more high and is there any software that can password my file for example: my music folder or camera folder my software info: R8BF003 prgCXC1250210_Generic_WI R8BF003 Erom: R3A022 Customization is T-Mobile Uk
