    I got a really annoying bug.
    Sometimes my phone thinks I push the camera button and launches it.

    I'm using wp8.1 in German.
    That's a pretty common bug, but there is a very simple solution.

    Just stop hitting the camera button by accident....

    Search button launching Bing search without being touched (Hard reset fixed this for some)
    This suddenly started happening Monday (14th). Also ghost would be typing while I would try to create a text and similiar ghost taps issues. Running Black with current WP8. Unfortunately I cannot recall what app updates were recently installed. Monday evening I did a factory reset and a WP restore (backup was about one day old). Problem was unchanged. So on Tuesday I called AT&T and they are sending me a warranty replacement phone.

    Now it gets interesting. Tuesday evening WP Store suddenly decides I have 28 updates! I let those install and the problem goes away! As of Wednesday afternoon everything is still good. So I'll be refusing the package from AT&T.

    It looks like some app (Touch?) had a bug, but I cannot pin it on a particular app because I don't know what update immediately proceeded the problems. Is there an update history somewhere in the Matrix? May I try that blue pill again please?

    Good thing I didn't exhale (or refuse the yet to be delivered warranty replacement phone). Yesterday (Thursday) the problem reappeared.

    So is this hardware or software? If hardware, why did the hard reset cure the problem (temporarily)? If software, how to identify the troublemaker(s)? Next report, in a few days, will be if the replacement phone has the same problem or not. If yes, then I'll try loading apps one by one (ugh), including Nokia system app updates like Touch, etc.

    I'm having this happen to, has been happening ever since I got my 1520 a couple weeks ago.

    It randomly launches the camera app when my fingers are nowhere near the camera button. Using WP 8.1 in English (US)

    I add myself to have experienced all of these issues brought up on this thread.
    The most annoying of which is the misinterpretation of finger scrolling to selecting. Grr.
    Also Camera initiation even when not pressing the camera button.
    Random reboots.

    I'm presuming with WP 8.1DP most, if not all these issues should evaporate once Cyan comes to play.

    I just experienced a pretty seriously crazy bug/defect today, my screen and tiles started shaking, much like an iPhone's apps do when you hold them down, then it only got worse from there, the screen became very distorted, screen started rolling and had static, like an old tv, when we had to use antenna's, I tweeted Nokia Care US, tried several re-boots and same outcome, came home and re-installed software using the Nokia Software Recovery Tool and still the same results, being as I've only had it since January it's still under warranty so AT&T is shipping me a replacement but I can honestly say that was extremely frustrating and the craziest thing I've ever seen, what would likely cause that?

    Sometimes in holding my 1520 its very easy to brush the camera button on the right side and open the camera I've even done it putting the device into my horizontal holster and if I don't realize that camera being on can make the device hot and run the battery down quickly.

    This is rich. The warranty replacement phone has a wonderfully working screen/digitizer. But the earpiece does not work. No sound out of the earpiece. Every call has to be on speakerphone mode, including listening to v-mail. Bluetooth, main speaker works fine. Factory reset did not help. And yes, the volume for calls was set to 10. The second warranty replacment phone is now on its way.

    1. I am not able to scroll in WhatsApp text box. When I copy a long text from another message and paste it into the text box, I am unable to scroll that text.

    2. Uploading videos to YouTube via the Nokia Video uploader: Sometimes, it just hangs (gets stuck on an upload) even though wi-fi is available and strong (signal). And the worst annoyance: it doesn't do it in the background! The screen remains on for the duration of the upload and even after that. Terrible.

    Also, not so much a bug as an annoyance:
    This is one big phone. When answering a call, it would be good if I didn't have to use two hands: open the flip cover, slide up, answer. Instead, I should be able to configure the camera button (say) as a one click answer, so I can take a call without opening the cover (assuming, of course, I don't care who is calling).

    I bought a brand new, unlocked Lumia 1520 here in the Philippines. But there seems to be a defect in the phone. The capacitive soft keys seem to be very very yellow. Unlike the white backlight of my Lumia 720. Is this covered by the Nokia warranty, so that they can swap this out?

    I don't know if this applies to the 1520, but I was literally just watching a review of the 925, and the presenter noted that the lights were lemon yellow rather than white.

    My screen shake problem goes away after I set Touch sensitivity to high. Counterintuitive but it works for me 99.5% of the time. Running stock 8.1 not DP. Period and m keys on keyboard still tends to double or triple type.

    This might be a combination hardware and software problem.

    Hi,

    I am not able to Change the Lockscreen-Wallpaper. Everytime I want to Change it, the Default wallpaper (Water and boats) appears again. Changing the menu to bing, Facebook or other apps Change the Background, but if I choose a photo on my own, the Default wallpaper appears.

    Do you have the same Problem or any suggestions to solve the Problem?

    I have this issue that is only replicable in 1520 running 8.1DP. I also have a 920 in 8.1DP but I can't replicate there.

    When listening to music, I listen using headset, but I sometimes disconnect it when I go elsewhere. When I reconnect my headset again, phone says that music plays but no sounds are heard, not until you fast forward or go to the next song - I theorize it's related to wakes and sleeps within the OS. I've also encountered things while calling, though it's too random -- it's something about mic not recognizing my voice, then I unplug, then my phone also still does not recognize my voice. I have to re-do the call with headset not connected. When I use cortana, the same mic hears me th.

    I've since reverted to WP8.0 (to anticipate Cyan) without the headset issues. I haven't tried calling yet though.

    I experienced the exact same issue back in May. The only solution that we (Nokia and I) came to was a replacement phone. Good news is that the issue is gone as well as the tap/swipe issue. 😊
