I had some problems with my headphones when using it on the Jolla C, it probably was a bit loose so I kept losing the microphone functionality; I had to re-plug the headphones and make sure that I don't touch it again, otherwise it'll lose the microphone again from my headphones.

So I decided to open up the Jolla C.
I bend the pins a bit so it will make good contact again.

Then I noticed that the camera was a bit loose.
I thought; This might be the reason why the camera is making those clicking noises.

So I unplugged the ribbon cable from the camera, just to find out that the bottom part of the camera had still the protection layer of the sticker on it!? Oh god.. seriously!?

So the camera is basically loose the whole time...
Now that I removed that protection, the camera does not wobble anymore.

I'll let you guys know if this actually solve the camera problems (and my headphone problems )

I had (almost) the same problem with my Jolla 1. After a few months of use, the main speaker went completely silent. Opening up the phone and bending the pins solved it. 18 months on and still going strong.

I'm afraid that my problem will reoccur after some time though, if I plug my headphones in and out

Save to a good BT headset instead such as:

Have you ever tried using a bluetooth headset on Jolla(C) with Skype?

Right now, I'm using the Shure SE215

Interesting, one of 3 or 4 times I have sent the cursed thing back to Jolla care was for the reason you mention.
Replacement or fixed speaker never really worked in terms of being able to attract attention in time to answer phone. That is because the sound is just sounding so thin and lacking body, it is like a background hiss.
Just learned to live with the fact that it is not a good phone.

Digging up an old thread, I know, but it seemed more appropriate than creating a new one.

How are your Jollas and AquaFish phones holding up? I got my AquaFish just 4 months ago and I'm really worried about the build quality of the device (and since I'm in Europe, I doubt I could get the thing serviced/replace in a reasonable time without additional cost, I guess). Despite my greatest efforts - really, I treat all my devices with care - I noticed that some kind of plastic coating is peeling off (or rather, crumbling) around the screen, revealing glossy plastic. It feels bad in hand and looks terrible. I assume it's just a manufacturing defect in my unit.
