Question about AT&T Blackberry Curve 8300 Smartphone

Clicking noise and volume moves up and down while on a call

When on a call, I sometimes get clicking noises and it seems the volume bar on the screen moves up and down by itself!

Ahhh! It drove me nuts but I finally found out how to fix it thanks to a fellow Fix Ya person....

There is probably something tiny stuck inside the hands free headset piece/hole on the left side of the phone next to your sync cable hole/slot.

Blackberry should have put a little cap on it to avoid this.

When this happens to me I just blow into the hands free jack and it starts working.

I recently put a piece of tape over it to avoid it happening in the future/or you can use some sort of rubber stopper to avoid tiny pieces of stuff getting in and shorting it out.

Hope this helps!

    Now a days a put a piece of tape over it to avoid it happening in the future.

Blow in the headset jack and keep wiggling your headset in the jack...maybe even try taking the headset in and out...
eventually it will fix the problem. It took several attempts before this fixed the problem.
Good luck!

Clinking noise when a bump is hit or turning corner.Suspect suspension, but don't know were to start.

i would start by checking the wheel barrings on the side of clicking located just behind the brake assembly

1 remove the tire ( on side of clicking )
2 remove the brake assembly ( remembering how it all goes back together )
3 remove the rotor

you should see the wheel pins that hold on your tire give that a turn and have a listen for
grinding, clicking, squeeking, or any other abnormal noises

you can at the same time check your balljoints located on the upper and lower part of the control arm
look for busted/broken boots and or some play by moving your control arm up and down and side to side

1996 Chevy 1500 automatic making clicking noise in first gear

yes could be a bad fly wheel. we have had them on our 1996 van and it is exactly as you describe. you do not hear it revving the engine. you will need to get under the truck . remove inspection cover for trans. look very carefully with a flashlight for reflections from the cracks in the flywheel. we tried to pry ours and it did not move. but we saw it with the flashlight both times. 2 flywheels were made one with ovals and one with circles. the oval ones always go bad. do not buy an aoval replacement

Clicking noise on 2006 Nissan Pathfinder between 20 and 60 mph

If u have hub caps remove them and see if the noise goes away.. Sometimes the hub caps aren't tight enough to the rim and move a little causing the clicking.

Speakers crackling and making a 'clicking' sound when volume high

The cable you are using to connect to the speakers could be duff or the connectors could just be dirty.  clean the connectors and push it in and out of the socket repeadedly to ensure you have a good connection.  Or you could try a different cable.

Saeco magic deluxe machine is making crunching noises when makes coffee and when returning to start position. Sometimes does not make the coffee grinds coffee but not letting water through almost seems...

There is a lever inside the door on the right. It is at the top in the center. Pull it back one click and try again. The crunching noise does it sound like a clicking noise?

Scanner making clicking noise

I just got that scanner back, L1 error code on a Sharp copier. Means the scanner can't move quick enough to satisfy the specs.. Removed the lock, not needed. Oiled the bar, scanner works ok now. Will look for Triflon lubricant, my favorite. Will check with local repair shop for recommended lubes. That light sensor switch is not necessarily on your unit, but I see them on a lot of machines. Sometimes it's just a little tab or button, hard to find. Check the freedom of your scanner bar. Temporarily loosen the drive if you can. The bar must move freely.
