Re: Headphone noise in Edge s430

2013-01-04, 13:15 PM

My guaranty upgrade includes a on-the-spot support. The technician comes to me with the Hardware and repairs it. The first time he wants to change the mainboard but the audio jack is on another board witch is connected with two cables to the mainboard. One cable is for the USB 3 jack and the other one is for the Audio and sd-card I think.


I think this card is the troublemaker. It could be the card itself, the cable or the case. The case has silver finish paint inside. If it’s a conductive paint in some way, it could be an insulating problem. Maybe it’s just a forgotten piece of insulating tape. :-)


In the next week I hope the technician comes again with the right hardware.


I have started a thread about our problem in the German-speaking community. Maybe someone has the same problem.


I inform you here if I know something new.
