strange T450s clicking sound

2015-10-03, 21:13 PM

Hi everybody.


Today my Lenovo refurbished T450s was delivered to me by FedEx.


Just when I turned it on I started hearing this clicking noise coming from the left palm rest area. It is some sort of clicking/ticking noise but I can't really understand what is causing it.


The laptop comes with an SSD drive. Here is a video of the problem:




Does anybody know what can be done?



Thanks in advance!





I have realized that it comes from the speakers :O


The thing is that... they don't work! The headphone jack works well with good sound, but if I disconnect the headphones, the speakers are dead. They just click. 


However, that noise happens even if I am listening to music with my headphones. If I remove my headphones and mute the speakers, it goes away.


Faulty speakers?

I just upgraded the RAM on my T450s and the exact same thing is happening to me now. The speaker clicks repeatedly and doesn't play sounds as normal. If I tilt the laptop just so, the speakers work for a second. I'm going to check for a loose connection...
