Nokia N97 Camera Lens Scratching Problem Revealed!

Very soon after the Nokia N97 was launched, consumers started complaining about straight line or scratches appearing on the Nokia N97 camera lens. The scratches were appearing on most handsets regardless of the time used, country of purchase or country of origin.

Here is a shot shown a scratched Nokia N97 camera lens:

Here’s a lens with some more scratches:

Well now brkix, a member of the forums has uncovered the reason behind the Nokia N97 camera lens scratching problem. After dismantling the Nokia N97, brkix reports that there is a piece of plastic with a square piece of metal attached to notify the phone of the opening of the lens cover and in turn activate or deactivate the camera application.

The piece of plastic is the blue stuff which we see below the lens cover. This was the same thing people used to think was a cleaning cloth. The blue stuff is too close to the camera lens and it scratches the lens when it is moved especially if there is dust trapped in between.
