This software issue is very annoying and only happened recently after the latest update a few days ago to Android 13 ONE UI 5.0. My Previous software version was - 4.4.00.64. I made sure I updated everything, cleared cache of device, app, toggled S-Pen settings, verified the writing sound worked in every other mode like for instance the Samsung Keyboard Text-to-Input you can hear the scribble. Well, I use my Samsung notes multiple times per day, and this has negatively impacted my writing experience.

Fast-forward to today, I receive a new update notification on my S22 Ultra prompting me to check my Tab S8 hoping they resolved the issue. The new software version is 4.4.01.2 – and there is still no sound within Samsung Notes when writing with the S-Pen. Funny, the sound works just fine on my S22 Ultra – so why does the sound not work on my tablet, and they are using the same software?

Make sure the Do Not Disturb (DND) is off.
If persists go to the s pen settings and turn on the sounds option in more s pen settings.
If persists maybe the systems sounds have been turned off in the sound settings.

I am experiencing the same issue on my Tab S8+. Writing in Samsung Notes or Pen UP results in no sounds. Writing in text fields or Samsung keyboard makes sound. I also see normal behavior on my S21 Ultra.

Where is SAMSUNG with the RESOLUTION - smh - this is such an ODD error to miss - and even stranger how the same app version only impacts the TABLET and not the PHONE AND - the sound works everywhere else BUT here. - MY writing has been negatively impacted as a result. Who knew how important the sound was.

I was having the same issue tried multiple things but this worked.

S1- Go to Settings-> Apps-> Samsung Notes

S2- Click on 3 dots in the top right corner

S3- Click on uninstall updates.

All this did was uninstall the updates - erased my notes - created a new one - sound was back while writing in the app - however, my notes did not restore  - and a perpetual "update to continue using" pop-up continued - so I had to update it again - my notes returned - LOST my favorite pens -  had to recreate them -

Oh and no sound again. Samsung needs to get it together  and make restoring and syncing more seamless to avoid losing data.
