    Its not a software issue...your camera module is bust. (probably from rough use or it falling down or may even be that way right from the factory)
    Anyways as a short term fix try bringing a small magnet near the camera module.
    It should probably temporarily fix the issue...Try using the camera after that to see if it's still the same.

    Long term though, you should get the camera module replaced from a nearby service centre before the warranty expires.
    Its totally free when covered under warranty.

    THANKS Anant,

    But it doesn't sounds if I use any other camera app. or doesn't sound during video recording...

    any idea...

    Any other way to uninstall and install the default camera app.

    one more thing sometimes it doesn't sounds ... but maximum times it does... and I never put a scratch even... drop is a far thing... then why...

    I have the same issue on my one plus 5t. I installed open camera and I didn't experience any noise when opening open camera or with switching modes from camera to video
    could it be issue with the stock one plus camera?

    I face the same issue since several months (almost 7 or 8 month ago I start noticing this weird noise) but this "humming" sound is not always there when I open the camera app (about once every 3 times)... I share with you a vocal record in the link.

    And today I face a new problem when my camera is humming... What I see through the camera is waving like when we see through heat (only on the main module, not in video nor portrait mode).
    Veeery weird, and it's doesn't affect the photo taken. I upload a video screenshot also in the Dropbox link.


    I hope we will find a way to fix those issues..

    have a nice day!

    The only way I can get rid of the humming is by using a small but strong magnet and move it against the lens. After a while of tinkering you get the right movements to stop the humming. After that the camera just works as normal again. At least until the next time.

    The only fix at the moment is either waiting until it works again or fiddling around with a small magnet against the lens until it stops humming.

    Oneplus should be fixing the op5 cameras for free , since there are so many OnePlus customers with camera issues ,

    Clear the OnePlus Camera App info Cache and App info Storage as well. See if that can help
