Mysterious problem affecting Droid Bionic

Recently the much delayed Motorola Droid Bionic was finally released to eager consumers to get their hands on. So far the majority of owners are really happy with the handset despite the issues surrounding battery life, which is not a problem restricted to the Bionic though. Now today we have news that a mysterious problem has been affecting the Droid Bionic for some users.

Engadget are reporting via the Motorola owners forums that some owners have reported a strange high-pitched sound when listening to media via a set of headphones. There are pages of owners complaining about the same noise, so it looks to be quite a big problem.

Owners are reporting they are being met with clicks and a background noise, which has been described as some sort of whiny pitch. Some of the owners on the forums have said they have recorded the noise, so they can try and get the problem solved by Motorola or Verizon. It is not currently known if it is a software glitch or a hardware problem.

One forum member posted “I had a huge feedback/whine when listening to Pandora. Everything was fine until I got a notification and the whine just about blew out the PC speakers. I couldn’t hear the music at all”.

The post length is lengthening all the time and at the time of writing there are eighteen pages of annoyed owners. You would have thought Motorola are working with Verizon on the problem before lots of owners return their handsets.

Do you have the Motorola Droid Bionic and have the same problem?
