Re: Samsung Galaxy fold creaks when opened

Sounds like you got something stuck inside the fold mechanism. Something like dust etc may have got in.

 

Nothing you'll be able fix yourself.

Hi @Dando

 

Welcome to the community. 🙂

 

Has it done this since you got it? Is it working OK apart from creaking?

Thought they solved that problem by putting plugs in the end of the hinges it's under a lifetime warranty so I'll take it to a shop hopefully they can sort it 

Thankyou

They cant completely seal ot off.

 

Look at Jerry rigs everything video he has done a video about the fold and sand.

Where can I view that video is it on YouTube.  I've not taken it outside yet and I've kept it away from dust so I thought

Yes it's on YouTube.

 

And dust is everywhere. Not just outside.

True I realised after saying that dust is everywhere 

That guy is brutal with the fold he had found myself cringing for mine . Mine dont make that sort of creak its low key compared to that one I'll stay of beaches with this phone and no Stanley knife near it I've just gotta be extra careful gonna pop in the shop tomorrow see what they say I don't wanna give the phone up besides the creaking it's a good phone
