Recently, I got a used Asus 6 (ZS630KL) smartphone from my friend. It is running on Android 9.0 (Pie), ZenUI 6, and no any modifications or configurations. Everything is okay but the device makes a rattling sound when the camera makes on each rotation. This issue doesn't make any change to camera functionality. But annoying. how can I fix this?

    Try clearing cache from Motor Service (Enable System Apps from Settings)

    also cache clean camera app.

    Beyond this it sometime does the sound and we can't do anything about that

    It's normal as this device comes with motorized mechanism and it tends to wear and tear over the time

    Make sure you always keep the surrounding area of moving part Pristine !

    *Note: Since module is magnetic it can easily attract 'Magnetic Sand' so be aware of the place where you keep your device must be dust free area, as it can enter easily get inside during camera flips

  • Thanks for information.. Mostly, I'm working outside and this Magnet sand issue could be the reason. BTW, I'll try all these methods to get a positive result

  • If "Magnetic sand" attracted, how can I fix it? Do I need to send the device to repair center or is there a something I could do myself?

    No brother, I'm just telling you to be aware of those facts, It's not like it will get inside, just keep the surrounding clean,

    Also rattling sound as I said, unless flip works perfectly without any issues, (precise angle) you need not to be worried .

    Don't get this to repair or even don't try yourself to open camera module unless it's really malfunctioning , just if you are annoyed with it's sound, no please
